We have been camping with our four children for a while now in a tiny SOB (21 feet with a bed bump out) and really love it. I found that I could be happy as a clam in any space as long as I had internet, air conditioning, and a microwave.
We realized that it may be a little too small because mom and dad wanted some privacy
so we decided to start researching our AS dream.
My husband has wanted a big 'ol diesel forever and when he brought home a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew cab a couple of weeks ago I knew the Airstream was coming soon! We looked at every dealership from Seattle to Alabama and finally found the camper of our dreams: a 2004 34' Classic (not slide out). We are bringing it home this weekend!
I have to say that we eyed all of the SOBs quite carefully, but after bucking 52 mile an hour winds all the way across South Dakota, we decided that what we sacrifice in space we make up in safety...plus we are just smitten with the way they look and the fact we can probably keep it forever and renovate it down the line as styles change.
We just bought a Hensley hitch too.
What generator do you recommend? We boondock quite a bit (5 walmarts on the last 7000 mile trip) and need something with enough snort that won't wake the dead.
