Welcome to AS from an old sailor. Island Packet 31, Fuji 37, Tayana 37 and now the Flying Cloud 25. I'm sure you will find great cruising grounds.

I love the spillover between sailing and Airstreams! When people ask us how we live with such a small "wet bath" I just tell them that this is bigger than a couple of the boats we have owned....! That is slightly exaggerated but not by much. Bianca 27, Able Whistler 32 and a Sabre 386. Only the Sabre has a much larger head and anyone who has braced themselves to prevent being thrown off a toilet at sea will understand the fondness for a tight space in a boat bathroom/head.

As a sailor, one of the things I like about the Airstream is that it doesn't try to be something it is not. Just like a well designed boat that instantly turns heads and nods of appreciation, so does an Airstream. Because of its sleek aeronautic design, even the untrained eye senses that it is meant to travel over the road in a efficient manner. The interior design is both functional and comfortable.

Unlike many mega-5th wheels and motor-homes, the interior design does not try to deceive the occupants that they are in an opulent mansion complete with fireplace and even chandelier. When I am on a boat or in my trailer, I want to experience and enjoy if for what it is.

I enjoy being required to think about how much stuff I can take along or how much energy and water I consume, and how much trash I produce. This exercise helps me carry that thinking with me when I return "home".
