Search engines useful for finding Airstreams

SearchTempest - The EASY way to search Craigslist

Hi kidsgone,
Thanks for the warm welcome and the info. Been searching the classified and have to hold myself back! I do like the idea of a warranty...

Good point--Nothing compares to having the amazing view right outside your window(s)!

Uh oh. I have allergies and hadn't thought about the off-gassing.

Sounds right to me. I think I'll know it when I see it.

That's hysterical. Made my day. An Airstream knockoff!!
I am surprised and happy to say that I'm enjoying the research, the forum, the articles, oh, and I got some Airstream Life Mags to drool over! Big fun here.
Thanks again and hope I do see y'all on the road.
Kathy

Dear zigzagguzzi,
Nice to hear there are other Vespariders in the A/S world. I do love my scooter.

We can tow up to 8000 pounds with our setup but the cargo weight is a loser., You can also get over your gcwr. Buy a 3 quarter ton or larger if a scooter is involved. jim
Uh oh. that's a big problem--and from the lists of stuff I'm thinking we'll bring, I wouldn't have room for the scooter anyway. I'm thinking about TV now and maybe I'll save the scooter riding for closer to home...or knuckle under and get a 3/4. The good part is I could then tow a 27 instead of a 23 or 25! oh I got it bad!!
Thanks for the heads up,
Kathy
