You may never convince her or at least she may never admit that she likes it. As long as she goes camping with you and seems to be having a good time, I'd say she likes it.

Welcome and congrats, love those Tradewinds. Looks like you found a good one.

thank all of ya kindly. Tradewinds?. I thought it is a safari land yacht. is it a twin because of the dual axles or twin bed layout?. Just learning not sure if a twin means axles or bed layout/ rdnose.

Twins refer to twin beds and it is a safari...

The first day I dragged home our first AS (1972 23' Safari); my wife cried.
Six weeks later we were off on our first trip. We had some trouble but made the trip just fine. Over the next 3 years we continued to fix the old trailer up and had many good trips in it.
Then we had a real problem. Someone broken in and vandalized the trailer. It was a total loss. She cried again. She had come to love that old trailer and the good times we had in it.
We have a 2008 Safari now. It's also a great little trailer and our trips continue.
I hope you two have as many good times in your AS as we have had.

IMHO dual axles is a plus. Easier to maneuver and when you blow out a tire (due to the lack of decent 15 inch tires) you can actually take the tire off and operate on three for short distances. Increases your capacity to carry things too. Won't turn on a dime but I like having 4 tires instead of 2 to rely on. Course it's more expensive too!

Thanks for reading my blog... Really need to update tomorrow!

I believe the majority of people on here would agree that the more questions asked, the better. I have learned an insane amount about Airstreams and even when the questions I have asked may have been redundant, the majority of people point you in the proper direction for the answer if not answering outright.
