Hi all

Hi all !!
I have been looking at Airstream trailers for years, but have never made the move to trailer camping.
I enjoy camping here in Minnesota, even though it's a pretty short season. Lately I have been getting more serious about camping in comfort, and by that, I mean a bed, a shower, maybe the air conditioner running, and of course, my very own toilet
I Love the idea of getting a Sport 16. The local dealer has them, at near retail of course, so I think it's time for me to start looking over the next winter for a gently used unit.

Anyways, I guess I have gone on long enough for an introduction.

Thank you for having me. Looking forward to reading, and learning a lot.

Hunt carefully. If you find one, ask for help here as there are "inspectors among the members" who can save your aluminum.

I'm going to make the same recommendation Paula made to another person searching. Check out the classifieds - there is an incredibly beautiful, creative and tasteful Argosy with a Sprinter flatbed tow vehicle and matching Cooper Mini for driving around once you're at your campsite. You have to see it to believe it. More expensive than the new trailer you're looking at but complete with tow vehicle and commuter vehicle and incredibly well done!

Either way - welcome, have fun, go camping! :-)

Maybe you should talk to Julie here who is thinking of selling her lightly used Sport 16
