Looking For a Thought Process

Howdy from Carolina. I'm a newbie, studying up on the many facets of Airstream ownership. Have not decided which model or even trailer length that I want/need as yet, but I am getting familiar with the floor plans and accoutrements of trailers living. I believe I've decided to buy "slightly used" but not yet needing major repair or refit. I won't be ready for full time trailer life for at least a year, so my first question is, "Should I buy a 19ft Flying Cloud now, for a first trailer, knowing it's a weekend or at most a ten day vacation vehicle, or should I wait until I am ready to move into the 30ft Classic full-time?" I'm retired but my gf isn't. Thanks.

Don't wait for tomorrow if you are in the position to buy today.

In the end, we only regret the chances we DIDN'T take.

Buy the trailer that makes you happy!!

If I was going to move into a 30' trailer within a year, I surely would not buy a 19' for a few months use!

I would do the 30 foot NOW; but watch your weights. My wife says "but there is room for it". I notice you have a Tundra, the next thing would be a 3/4 ton, diesel, hitch and so it goes. It is easy to get carried away.
