I'm so glad I found this forum...tons of great information.
I've been trailering all my life. My parents didn't have an Airstream but my grandmother did. My grandfather was a carpenter for a construction company any they would use their Airstream when his job took him down the road...that was in the 40's and early 50's. My mom always wanted an Airstream but always thought they were too expensive.
Well, I'm on my third, a beautiful 87 29' Soverign. I might buy one more...thinking of a used 30' w/slide or a wide body 34'...we'll see!
My first was a 65 Caravel
(wish I'd kept it) that now has a happy home in Walnut Grove California...if you see one behind an orange 48 Chevy, that was mine. There's a picture of it on the WBCCI site with the orange Chevy.
I had a 76 21' Land yacht but a nieghbor made me an offer to buy it that I couldn't pass up to I sold it and bought the Soverign which is a great trailer.
I live in northen California and travel as often as I can throughout the west. I'm going to (semi) retire in the next year or two and start "getting out" more. My partner is off during summer so we'll be taking longer trips and going farther east. If you see a nice rig being towed by a dark blue Dodge diesel 4x4 say hello...and if it's after 5 (anywhere in the world!) we'll have a martini!
