I did get a good feeling about the 25'. We're pretty much novices in the trailer towing department, but having taken a trip to Cape Cod a few years back with the in-laws' 34' 5th wheel, we're OK. Or at least hubby's OK - I'm the spotter/navigator/yapper.
On another note - when we were in Cape Cod, there were scores of very fancy-schmancy trailers and motorhomes around us. Automatic this, press a button to self-level that, every upgrade you could think of. But the one that stood out the most in my mind was this cool Airstream - don't know what kind. But the couple that travelled around in it were very low-key, laid back and friendly. Said their kids had bankrupted them with college tuitions so all they could afford to do was to tour around the country with their Baby. It made a lasting impression on me. That and the fact that we camped during the Sept. 11 attacks, which was mind-numbingly horrible on so many levels.
But the conversations with the Airstreamers planted a seed that took a few years to take root, but now I'm on a mission! A 25' CCD SS for me - and hopefully it'll have that terrific orange interior on the upper cabinets. If I get a great used deal I may not get that option, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Thanks for giving me the scoop on your 25' experiences with your 3 girls and the dog B25guy - which leads me to ask - where does the dog sleep??
