New here

My husband and I are Airstream wannabees. We're considering the Classic 30', but won't be purchasing until this Fall or early next year.

We've been retired since 1995, and started RVing shortly thereafter. We were fulltimers for 5 years, and are planning on returning to the fulltime lifestyle as soon as we purchase our new trailer.

Currently, we spend the winters in Quartzsite, AZ, and are on the road traveling the rest of the year.

Looking forward to learning more about Airstreams! (We did get to see some at the Hobo Rally over in Blythe, CA early last month, and spent a lot of time in a new Classic 25' at the Tucson, AZ Airstream dealer last week. To date, we haven't actually *seen* the Classic 30'.)

Welcome to the forums. If you hand out here for long you will catch the bug to buy before next fall.

Oh, we'd LOVE to by right NOW! But we have to sell our house in Quartzsite first, and we won't be able to put it up for sale until we return to Q in October or November.

Thanks for the welcome!

Linda

Welcome!

Welcome to the forums and count on all here to make you feel right at home. Hope you get to see a 30' Classic soon and can decide if it is what you want in a coach. Whatever your choice of trailer I'm sure you will be glad you came here to this community. Ed

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

Do not look for very long at a Classic 30! You will fall in love so quickly you won't know what happened! I speak from experience. It happened to us and before we could blink, we owned one!

I'm sure that's true!

So far, we only seen the 25' Classic (other than a 34' Classic w/slide that we saw at the Hobo Rally). We really liked the 25', but figured that, for our purposes, we'd like to have a trailer with a dinette. Can't wait to see one in person!

Hello Linda and welcome.

You're in the right place to start.
I've been fulltiming 6 years and love living the life in my 28 Excella. You'll be FTiming in no time!

elh---We just got our 30' Classic from Oasis RV in Tucson. I can't say enough good things about the trailer or the dealer. We spent most of Jan & Feb in ours and feel like it would work for a full time coach for us. We traded a 25'classic for the same reason you mention, that being we wanted a dinnette. As far as waiting be aware prices are increasing steadly. Waiting can be costly in terms of increases,in some cases more than interest on a loan. ------Pieman

I hear ya, Pieman. Unfortunately, we don't have a choice but to wait until our house sells...and we won't be able to put it up for sale until we return to Quartzsite this Fall.

Welcome. Bought a 1978 Argosy, 24ft about a year ago. Honestly would like to have more room. You are right to go for as long a trailer as you can tow. Just my husband and I, but would not mind more room for us and the dogs.
