Greetings from Warm AZ

New to Airstream; purchased a 2014 28 Intl Signature. We call it the Toaster furnished by Ikea. At the same time we purchased a 2016 Chev. Tahoe to tow. We have downsized this time, having traded in our 2005 Monaco Camelot 40'. The AS is a lot smaller, especially no slides & storage, but we are looking forward to using it during the Summers in the Pacif. NW., escaping AZ during 120 deg and Monsoon season. First major trip planned is next Summer when we will head to the Canadian Maritimes and visiting family in Montreal & Toronto. Looking forward to the wife driving again, as the Monaco was just too scary for her. Anybody got similar rigs for gas mileage estimates? We drive 60MPH.

Greetings BoeingJet from snowy Colorado. Welcome to the Airstream community. Yep, Airstreams are small, sometimes I say it's like camping in a business jet, maybe even the Lear. But much smaller than a BoeingJet. They are comfortable enough for us. You just have to get used to the lack of floorspace. I've noticed some of these big rigs with slide outs create a large "dance floor" making for a longer walking distance to get your favorite beverage from the fridge. That dance floor isn't really all that useable.

We have found we don't need to take half of everything we own when we travel. We still take too much, but we are getting better at it.

I predict your Tahoe will book mileage in the 10 mpg range depending on winds and hills. A diesel pickup will book about 13 mpg. There are big differences on reported mileage. I think GM does a good job engineering their vehicles for better mileage.

Use these AirForums when you have questions about your new rig or where to go. I have found many very helpful people here.

Welcome Boeing,

There's quite a friendly Arizona group of Airstreamers with the 4Corners Unit and the Arizona Unit to hang out with when you are not escaping the heat.

Come by any rally and say hi and meet more fellow Airstreamers.
