Roughly three years ago I began coveting Airstreams. Two years ago I bought a used '06 Winnebago View - it was a great rig and facilitated many wonderful trips and memories ... but I could not shake the desire for Airstream.
A few months ago my wife and I got serious about trading out the View for an Airstream and the search began. We'd need both a trailer and TV - loads of fun in looking, but ultimately a very stressful process landing on an exact combo.
Having made my 'final' decision at least a half dozen times, we landed on the following set-up: 2012 '27FB Int'l CCD & 2012 F-150 (w/EcoBoost).
Took possession of the truck last week and drove from San Francisco Bay area (Foster City) to Portland Saturday to take possession on Sunday. Folks at Airstream Northwest were great to deal with I'll add.
Currently, shaking down the unit at LL Stub state park ... just another one of great Oregon state parks. The unit is such a treat; we are over the moon happy - so thrilled to finally be enjoying the Airstream. I'm sure I'll be cursing the first leak or some other well documented issue, but for now, we are basking in our new unit happy as ever.
Thanks to all of you in the forum who have responded to my inquiries - your assistance in this process has been incredibly helpful. Now, I just need to finalize my solar decisions ...
Happy camping. _dave
PS - I'll have 700 miles driving home and will be sure to share my thoughts on the EcoBoost.
