New Kid on the Block
I am a few months from retiring (not really as I have a new part time venture lined up) and I have been dreaming for years about RVing. I have looked at diesel pushers, 5th wheels, etc. but always come back to the Airstream - maybe because it is so practical, nostalgic and classy! My "bucket list" includes wandering the US with no real timetable and visit as many of the National Parks as I can - visiting with friends along the way.
I am planning to buy a used Airstream - 25 foot seems like it will be the perfect size (I want a queen bed and enough room to be comfortable). I am thinking a refurbished 2000'+ vintage would be in my price range. My question is, what is the best way to start researching, talking with owners, maybe even renting one? I live in the Chicago area. Appreciate any guidance from the forum!
