Newbie Who's Done a Bit of Research

Good afternoon: I was on here a few months back asking some basic questions as my wife and I consider this lifestyle after retirement. We even went up to NJ back in January to Colonial Airstream and checked out a few models. Turns out the 25' Flying Cloud not going to to do the trick for what we envision - a year of touring about so as to figure out where we want to live post-working - and think 27' required. My wife, of course, liked the idea of an upscale model! But that's a couple of years from now. In meantime, we have been struck by the relative dearth of AirStreams we see on road (we live in Northern VA, close in to DC) and wonder were all the people who use/live/enjoy them are? We would like to visit with some actual users, perhaps in some place where more than a few have gathered? It seems like it's a wide and diverse community out there. Any ideas as to where there might be an event where a crowd of Airstreamers might be in near future, in this area? Thanks! JackKerouac

Check out the "Upcoming Rallies" section at the bottom of the portal page.

You might also want to attend Alumapalooza next May in Jackson Center, OH:

Alumapalooza 5

You won't find a more congenial group of Airstream owners anywhere! You do not need to own an Airstream to attend.

You should check out the local WBCCI unit in your area. Northern VA is the closest unit, check out their upcoming events. But there are other units in the area.

Northern Virginia

Also you might want to check out, Virginia Highland Haven, a Airstream only park, which if I mapped it right is 4 hours from Annandale, Virginia

Highland Haven

Jersey Shore Haven Airstream Park or maybe the Bash rally in PA?

Or just buy a 27-30 Classic and go camping! You won't regret it!
