There are many posts on here about the Motorhomes... a lot are found on Craigslist across the US... One of our 'new' members from CA bought one on the East Coast I think.... and SHE drove it across the US to her home.. with a few problems along the way, but she managed to get it done!

Welcome to the forum Chris.

Lots of info about classic Moho care and use in the motorhome threads.
And a helpful group of long term owners there willing to help us newbies thru the challenges that may come up.

The community here is one of the advantages of airstream ownership.

I just can't seem to put my finger on a pic I took at the Walter Mitty races at Road Atlanta a couple of years ago of I think a 310 with a Triumph Spitfire and gear in tow, there in the paddock . This was an inspirational vision for me.
What a rig. Story was that the wife is the driver and the husband the chief mechanic.

So it can be done, but towing is not the strong suit for these old classics. Most are rated for 2,000 lbs towing. Part of the issue can be dealt with by beefing up the frame and reciver area of the chassis . But in my 345 power for climbing is also an issue.

I'm not totally deterred and am in the process of rigging mine to flat tow my old 911. I'm getting close to being ready to give it a try soon. But have just decided not to try taking it along for the trip to Colorado next week for the classic Moho gathering. Don't want to be climbing the highest mountains around on the shakedown trip with car in tow.

There are lots of Car Guys aboard, so please share a little about your vintage
Car and related activities, we love pics.

Cheers Richard
