I just joined tonight. I spent about a week in a motor home two years ago with my wife and we enjoyed the trip enough to become seriously interested in camping in a trailer or motorhome. I have been fascinated by Airstream trailers for years and joined this group to learn more about them and to start a search for the right fit.
I plan on looking around and learning more before I jump into anything. I'm pretty handy, but have a hunch that trailers have some special needs that I need to understand better to make the best choice. Your site seemed to be the best when I started looking around for places to learn more.
Most of my travel to date has been by air and car. Between the two, I have literally several million miles of travel. I'm hoping to have more fun with a trailer - the airports and planes are no place for travel enjoyment anymore.
I'm looking forward to learning.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of great information here... just ask lots of questions! First suggestion is look at the rally calendar and see if and when the nearest one to you would be.... get it on your calendar. Go, look, talk to Airstream folks and have fun!

Welcome to the forum, and good luck with your search. This is a really great place to help with that search. You're going to love the adventure!

(A dear friend of ours passed just a few weeks ago. Her name was Theda Wright. She would have been 97 this Fall, and she was originally from Griffin. Kind of a funny coincidence, but one of my favorite football players from days past is Rayfield Wright of the Dallas Cowboys, also from Griffin.)

Hi TravelPro Welcome to the forums and greetings from central Kentucky. Before I bought an AS trailer I researched my tow vehicle (TV) for its capacity, then followed the wife's marching order: "You can buy any trailer as long as it's an Airstream".

I was thinking about 17-19', she was thinking about 25-27'. We found a nice couple with a 23' not too far from our home and now she's ours. When it comes time to move up we're considering the 25-27' but we'll have to upgrade the TV, so nothing in the near future.

If you're handy around the home you'll be fine. It doesn't take more than that to do the day to day activities on the road. For the difficult tasks you can always go back to the Airstream factory (mother ship). They're not cheap but they're good.

If you don't have experience towing you should look into RV classes in your area. You can also rent various sized U-Hauls for a weekend to learn more. Airstream rallies are another good source of information.

So hang around here and read the various forums. I use the New Posts button to stay current but you can search for specific topics (use Google).

Welcome TravelPro. What kind of travel/camping do you plan on doing? That can help with your selection.

Good luck!
