Until earlier today, I had no intention at all of joining a forum on Airstream RVs. Hoping to retire early sometime between a year and three years from now, we had an entirely different idea in what we wanted.
We were at the Annual Arkansas RV Show in Little Rock and, guess what, they had two Airstream trailers. And, natuarally, we kind of "fell in love" with one of them, a 28' Airstream International.
So now we are re-evaluating what we want in a trailer and whether or not we want to pay so much.
We are not planning to buy in the near future, but whatever we buy — whether it's an Airstream travel trailer or something else — we plan to be very knowledgeable about it and any others that we consider along the way.
Currently we do not have a RV of any type. We had a small travel trailer — no heater and no bathroom or shower — years ago after having rented the same model. We've car camped, starting in 1973, as well as backpacked. Most of our recent vacations have been staying in some kind of stationary lodging, most recently a cabin near Cripple Creek, Colorado. We've already been to all of the states except Hawaii as well as several Canadian provinces. So whatever we have, we will be using and it will not be sitting growing moldy next to our home.
My goal in joining this forum is to learn as much as I can so that I (we
) ) will be able to make a good decision when it comes time to determine what we are actually going to buy and what we will be ruling out.
