Newbies - photography fans

My wife and I have just purchased a 2004, 25 foot Airstream International in great shape. We will tow it with our 2003 Ford Expedition and hope to put many miles and happy experiences on our new trailer. We are avid amateur photographers and plan on spending time in the National Parks and other photogenic places following our avocation.
Any advice would be welcome.

Welcome to the Forums. You'll find a lot of good Airstream information here. We also have a 25 footer (ours is an '05 Safari FB). We have spent over 100 nights in it in the last 10 months. You're going to love yours too. Airstreaming is a way of life.

As a professional photographer my idea of a trip around the National Parks would be to get Ansel Adam's landscape books with pics from the F64 group and go find the spot where he took his pics and draw some inspiration.
If you're on digital - make sure it's a C-MOS sensor - they're the best!

You didn't expect that kind of advice - did ya? Lol!

Dolph---good selection for a coach--25' gives you elbo room and still availablity to many campsites in National Parks. Once you go longer the number of sites available are reduced dramaticly. ---pieman

Thanks for the camera info. Mine is a Nikon D200. It seems to be doing the job. I have taken photos from photographers point in Yosemite and we will be going to Death Valley and I will certainly be looking out from Zabiske Point.

Hope you enjoy camping and traveling as much as my wife and I do. 25' is a good choice. Our MH is 39' and we have a hard time getting into a lot of state and national parks, so we end up parking at a private park or boondocking.
Enjoy and good luck.

Welcome to the forums!

Great to have another photo type or two amongst us! There are several tallented photographers here on the forums so you will be right at home. I obtained my '68 Trade Wind for much the same purpose and it is fantastic for it. Hope to see you out on the road soon.
