Talking A newbe here...


I have just purchased my first Airstream, and have ever been happier. I am new to RVing, entirely. I live in Asheville, North Carolina, and find myself in my new adventure at the Myrtle Beach State Park. A lovely place, right on the ocean.

I am interested in finding out where all the Airstream Campgrounds are located and wish to visit them soon. I have to say that I feel a little judged in this state park where most of the RV's (except one) are not Airstreams. It seems they are envious or jealous, or something. It might also be my tow vehicle. What can I say...I have good taste, and have worked my whole life for these things.

Any information on Airstream parks, or the in's and out's of Airstream travel would be most appreciated. I am pretty green at all of this.

Thank you,

Welcome! Everywhere you go, people will want to check out your Airstream. I'm sure the Porsche gets its fair share too. It will likely get questions here as many people feel that's too short a wheelbase for your 25 footer. How did it tow on your first trip?

My Mercedes tows just fine, but I have a 20' trailer.

Hi. The 25' towed GREAT...I bought a Hensley Hitch, which made it a very smooth ride. Other than going uphill, I don't even know the trailer is there.

Welcome to the Airforums, Peggy...and congrats on your new toy! We are happy that you're happy! Glad you could join us... And yes, wherever you go, they will want to check your Airstream out. We get that all the time... We keep the inside all picked up all the time just in case someone wants to peek inside...(Besides, in a Bambi if you don't keep it picked up you run out of room!)

Many happy trails to you...see you down the road, eh?

Hi, Peggy. We're almost Airstream owners too and once we buy the tow vehicle, we'll be on our way to pick one up, hopefully. We're new to Rv'ing and are a bit nervous. We're hoping a 4.0 liter, V-6 with a tow capacity of 6,000 lbs will be enough for a 19' Bambi Safari. We'll also be poking around looking for Airstream parks but are on the west coast. Good luck with your new trailer!
