It all sort of just snuck up on me and started with an innocent purchase of a "neat little old trailer" we found that was low enough to the ground for Clyde (our 170 lb Mastiff with joint problems) to get into. There is a built-in/recessed step at the doorway and our dog was able to get in easily with the help of a short platform step we built.
So, our 1953, 17' Clipper needed work, and I started reading all sorts of Airstream info on the internet (mostly this Forum) and found that I really enjoyed working on or "playing" with my Airstream.
Well, now just a year or so later, our beloved dog is gone and I've filled the void with 2 more Airstreams. My husband doesn't say anything about my collection because I've convinced him it's all part of the grieving process after the loss of our precious Clyde.
I finally decided to register so I could search and post. I'm so glad to have found the Airstream Forum. It's kind of a relief to know I'm not the only one with a thing for Airstreams. The Forum is so helpful because each of my Airstreams are different and have unique personalities and quirks (problems) to be figured out. I may even get brave enough to post a question or reply about something I might be able to comment on.

* Actually, there is a question that I just don't seem to comprehend - My husband has asked me which one I'm keeping??
Welcome aboard. All that glitters is not Aluminum. Suggestion the next time your husband asks which one you are keeping. Respond, Why you dear! Of course.

Rose ,
Welcome to the forums. I am sad to hear of your loss but glad the grieving process is progressing for you. My suggestion to your husband's question is to keep the Airstreams. In the long run they are a lot less trouble than a spouse.

Keep on Keeping the A/S trailers

I don't have a collection, it is an accumulation. I seem to gather a few, I say one is for parts, but then, it is too good to "rob" from and needs to be restored. I have several in differents stages of restoration. Always keep one ready to camp in at a moment's notice.

Yes, I've found that is the key to balancing the enjoyment I find with restoration and the actual use of the trailers.

Welcome to the forum Rose and I'm sorry for your loss. There is a beautiful mastiff down the street named Daisy that my two labs play with all the time. Such a beautiful breed and what a great temperment! Your addiction is understandable. Even though I've only owned my Tradewind for a few months, I look at the adds regularly looking for little gems that might come available.
