Full Timing ?

I'm a brand new forum member. Almost 60 yr old, semi-retired. My parents full-timed together for over 15 years and Dad for another 7 after Mom died.

While I will definitely buy a used trailer or motorhome, I looked at the Airstream site and went thru their "what is right for you" exercise. As soon as you say "trailer", the "full time" disappears as an option. Are they really saying that they don't recommend anything but motorhomes for full timing?


Thank you all.

Convinced the my wife and Family (boy 3, girl 6 months) that we need to buy a vintage airstream trailer. I am 41 and work as a web developer (my website is We do a lot of camping (tent and backpacking) but would like to try a trailer.

I am looking for a 17-23' vintage airstream in pretty good shape or one that needs some work where I could fix my self or hire someone to help me.

I will likely have a number of 'Newbie' type questions so please bear with me.

I look forward to joining this family.


Here's wishing you a sound and rust free trailer! Good luck to your family and enjoy the road!
