Hello From Central Texas

Hi folks,
My better half and I have made the decision to move forward on buying an AS.
This will be our first travel trailer. We just sold a vacation house on the coast because we wanted to see more of what's out there in this big, beautiful country.

We're 51 years young and both of our kids are gainfully employed. We're ready to be more adventurous in our traveling and to stop flying over everything to get to a destination...

Currently wrestling with basic questions like:
1) do we buy new or used?
2) what model best fits our needs?
3) do I need to upgrade my truck, etc.?

80-90% of our camping will be just the two of us. The rest will most likely be weekend trips with one or both daughters (and their pre-spouses if there is such a word). We know we want to go with a 30 footer just not sure which.

There seem to be so many "trade offs" and no perfect answer. But alas that's with everything worthwhile!

Looking forward to digging into the forums for nuggets of wisdom and experience. Looks like a very comprehensive site for all things AS.

Welcome! Congratulations on the decision to buy an Airstream and see America. There is tons of information here on those questions you asked. Good luck on your search!

P.S. You might want to attend a rally to talk with some Airstreamers and look at their trailers. Soldiermedic is hosting a rally during Wurstfest in New Braunfels next month.


Work is never done, so take time to play!
