Happy to be here!

My wife and I are semi-retired and want to travel the states. We thought the best way to do this was via a travel trailer. Living in Florida, we're surrounded by RVs year round. After stopping at a dealership to check out what was available, we fell in love with the Airstreams. So, we are now on a mission to find a nice, used 25 to 29 footer with the twin bed set up. We look forward to the day we can change our Trailer setting from "looking" to "owner"!

Welcome, like Tom Cruse said in "Risky Business" about his dads Porsche, Airstream, there is no substitute.

Welcome to the fountain of Airstream knowledge and opinions. With time, you will be able to discern the difference.

I suggest going to the Colonial Airstream website:

New Airstreams for Sale, Used Airstream Trailers for Sale, Airstream Mercedes Sprinter Interstate for Sale, Flying Cloud, Bambi, Classic, Sport

and clicking on any 2014 model and download the latest factory catalog. You can then look at the different floor plans to get an idea of those you might like. Also, peruse that same website as they have the largest selection in stock of Airstreams. They have comprehensive photos of each unit.

Many of the "mature" units have these same floor plans as they have been around for some time.

Great luck in your search.

Thank you all!

Appreciate the warm welcome wishes and information. I was looking at a 1989 Land Yacht, researched the site and found out something about Squarestreams. I think I'll stick with the traditional units.
