the toughest part about wanting an airstream is being patient enough to learn all you need to know before buying

folks like me dont' have that kind of fortitude

we learn a bit, then jump in the pool......d@mn the water temps! full speed ahead! I MUST have a silver twinkie hooked to my pickup!

we "learn" airstream on our first trailer....bust up a bunch of our knuckles, snoot full 'o dirt, and a bunch of torn sweatshirts later.... then the second purchase (beginning of the collection?) is a much, much wiser investment of cash with the knowledge acquired...

of course, I'm speaking from the renovator/restorator's perspective here and I'm the former not the latter (those are the HARDCORE streamers with massive skills/tools/patience and near-museum-quality trailers to show for it..)

Welcome, New Gurl.

I'm a vintage nut, so I drove around southern California and Utah looking, for over two years, knocking on doors, leaving phone number, etc. before I finally got my first one 11 years ago. It got a little bit harder as they became more popular, but I still manage to snag one about every 2-3 years.

If you're handy, or want to become handy, vintage is the way to go. You won't 'stream as much 'cause you'll be fixing things, but [to the consternation of the folks who only buy ready-to-go models] you'll also be proud and confident.

By the way, don't be too shy to show your approximate location. When other members see you are nearby, you'll get offers of help, once you have an Airstream. If no one has a clue where you are, it's hard to be motivated to make the offer.
