Welcome Rhonda and I an glad you found the Airstream Forum, there must be "karma" in that find.
The T@B is indeed cute and we have met some people who try and camp in them. They offer less room than most tents and have the disadvantage of permanent fixtures which tents do not have. My suggestion would be to go to a dealer with the intention of spending at least a couple hours inside with the door closed. Remember camping includes those rainy, cold days.
The karma of finding the Airstream Forum is that here you will read about people just like you who have purchased used or vintage Airstream trailers and use them as their regular camper. I once met a man and wife with a 60's Airstream I referred to it as a vintage and he corrected me saying it was just their camper. The Airstream could be lighter and much easier to tow depending on which model you choose. Then there is the new base camp which gives you the combination of tenting and trailering. Our dealer has one now and soon all dealers will have one. Check out the possibilities and again welcome to the forum.

Wink Sounds like you need a Twister....

I could not download a picture, but a company started making high quality reproduction vintage campers a few years ago with beautiful birchwood interiors. They are very high quality. One is featured in Doug Keisters' book "Ready to Roll".

There is one for sale on the Tin Can Tourists website right now with pictures

Base Camp

Martooon -- I noticed these shots of the Base Camp on a member's photos: http://www.airforums.com/photo...0602&catid=509

Looks interesting if you love minis.

Hey Rhonda,
I'd never seen one until your message. I checked them out and yes, they are darling. I almost e-mailed the site to my daughter but with closer consideration decided it wouldn't work for her family. I'm with the others who say you can get more bang for your buck elsewhere.

Rhonda, the base camp would be quality and cooool. I don't know how the price points run but Scamps http://www.scamptrailers.com/ and Casitas http://www.casitatraveltrailers.com/casitaflash.html seem to have it all contained and can be pulled with small vehicles too. Maybe you could paint one silver metallic.

Have them all!!

We seem to have them all and we love each one of them. A 18ft.Caravel,345 motorhome,teardrop,AND the new T@B and we are in rv heaven right now.. There isn't anything wrong with any of them!! We just returned from a rally along a babbling river with our T@B. will be soon taking the motorhome to Montana and then going to the INTERNATIONAL in Salem with the Caravel. life is good. We give it all to HIM for these blessings and times. Airstream is a way of life, camping is a way of bliss.

have them all part 2

can't help it .. have to say this.. the base camp looks to me like a "baby horse trailer with a tent hanging out of it" I saw a teardrop at the International teardrop rally in Minden, Nebraska last summer and it had the front window look .sorry just my opinion. "Grama airstream"

airstream

welcome to the forum,

i just bought a 75' 27' airstream for a fraction of what that is new. and it was in the berkshires. very nice shape and i can stand in it, front to back!
it does look cool though one stormy weekend and it will be a glorified tent.

lol
