Welcome GregT, nice to meet you. Airstream founder Wally Byum loved yachts and marketed his trailers as Land Yachts, Trade Winds, and the like. I don't know if Airstreams are quite as nice as a yacht on the inside. My old 86 Limited has the hickory cabinetry that do look nice and have stood up well through the years. The 66 Trade Wind, although the base model, had plywood cabinets which are so so at best. I think you'll find your 95 Excella pretty well built and should last a very long time.
You'll see some beautifully renovated Airstreams that folks have done themselves here in these forums. Maybe you are going to make your Airstream like your yacht? Did you see the photos of the 2014 Land Yacht Airstream model which is suppose to look like the inside of a yacht. Maybe it's on the Airstream website.
We're retired too and plan on using our Airstream for traveling, especially in the spring and fall. We went through New England last fall and found it beautiful, and the people we met very nice. This spring we want to head to the southeast part of the country for some southern hospitality.
We hope to see you participate in these Forums and hope you enjoy the experience.
