Since I'm here I'm obviously new. We're headed for retirement soon and we're ready to travel. She want to do the Northwest US, Canada and Alaska, I'd like to see Eastern Canada, the Maritimes, etc. We are buying a small piece of property in North Central Washington [Ferry County] which will gve our home base and we'll either winter over in Seattle with the kids or boondock in Southern Utah area. I have an 84 E350 6.9 diesel, banks, gearvendor od, dually, cutaway extended van for built for extended range/rough condition towing.
I need your advice on a suitable Airstream [Argosy or Avion maybe]. I'm thinking about 30+ ft, 2/3 axle, queen bed [gotta have this], open style floor plan. I'd like to spend between 6 and 10,000. I'm an auto shop teacher in high school and so have access to our wood and metal shops and kids for slave labor to do any refurbishing. Could you guys point me towards suitable models to start looking at.
