The thing I miss the most about our tent was the view of the stars at night through the mesh. The thing I don't miss is setting it up in the rain. You don't forget your experiences in a tent and most likely wouldn't trade them. But tomorrow is a new start and the Airstream would be a whole new way at living in the great outdoors.

Beautiful photos!

Yes-- not only setting up a tent in the rain, but then having to pack up a wet tent the next day and set it up still wet at the next campsite.

Packing up a wet pop-up trailer-in-a-box seems like a similar problem. Also, we often camp in bear country, so having a hard-sided camper was a must for us. From that decision, an Airstream was the only one we really liked. A lot.

On additional thought for tenters, is that having an RV greatly expanded our options for places to stay on long road trips, namely in RV parks. Some RV parks accept tenters, but some don't. There seem to be a lot more RV parks than tent-friendly nature-based parks along the highways.

It's not a tent, it's a fabric chalet!!! At least that's what I call it. But.. We are gay. Lol
All jokes aside, purchasing an AS was a childhood dream of mine. Having all the comforts of home is the foundation and history of camping. And the classic designs of AS allows one to camp in style.
PS we upgraded from the fabric chalet to "The Mini Bar". (2014 Bambi Sport 16')
Life is grand in an AS!!!!!!

Since I started this it is only fair I should show you what is my house on the road for now. This picture was taken last year at Skidaway SP.This tent was used from Nova Scotia to the Yukon and from Alaska to Georgia. Even if I am planning on getting an Airstram I am not about to get rid of it,there is just too many good memories attached to it.
