Greetings, from new member

Just a quick introduction... my companion and I are long time Airstream fans with a taste for vintage. We have accumulated several coaches over the years, ranging in age between 1948 and 1974. I had envisioned having a Bisbee, AZ style Airstream resort here in the Idaho Rocky Mountains, with vintage coaches as cabins but, Al is in his 70's, I'm in my 60's and it doesn't look like we're ever going to do it. So, we have decided to start thinning the herd, starting with our 31" 1974 Excella 500. I hate to see it go... such a beauty, but in the decade we've owned it, we have never used it. We are the second owners and the original owner had it stored for 10+ years also. Truly a time capsule, all original and well cared for... all she needs a loving hand to bring her back to perfection.
Although my favorite is our 1954 20 footer, with rear bed and whale-tail, each coach is an individual and I really enjoy their variety. As a collector of vintage stuff in general, it has been fun decorating them over the years with era appropriate decor, but they have a nasty habit of evolving into storage units if one is not careful.
Anyway... nice to meet you all!

Hey Laura,
Maybe, instead of renting out vintage trailers as cabins you could rent out space for people with vintage trailers who might want to camp in the Rockies.
