long trailers

We had a 38' SOB 5th wheel and we went from Texas to Pacific ocean., Texas to Glacier NP in Montana, Texas to Daytona Beach FL. and lots of short 150 to 200 mi trips to Texas points of intrest. We upgraded to our 30' AS MH and we have been to AR. and several short trips. We want to go to Montana and Wisc this year if health and finances will allow. Your traveling style doesn't have to be limited by the length of your trailer. The desire to go and the time and money are the determining factors for us. We never felt limited due to the size of our trailer.

Ours is a 30' classic. We purchased it new in 2001 and have over 30,000 miles towing. We have done this on the weekends and during summer vacations because we still work. We have been to all the 48 states except Michigan, Alabama, Rhode Island, and Louisiana. We plan to get Rhode Island in this fall with a NEU outing. We purchased the 30' because it fits our family best. This summer we are taking a trip into the Maritime Provinces of Canada.

25' and it's pretty perfect for us

25' - rear bedroom, side bath, front lounge. Pretty much perfect for the two of us. We travel up and down the east coast, longest time out with the camper was 3 1/2 weeks (we are still working). We travel with our beloved cat Buddy, who is nearly as large as Yuki's Golden (not really, well - maybe).

Some white box owners ask us how we live without slides. I wonder why slides are so important. They ask "what about storage" and I wonder why they need to carry so much stuff. Airstreams provide us with a different style of travel, one that I really appreciate and enjoy.

Yes, we have a 34' motorhome and have put 40,000 miles on it in four years. Two big trips a year (one to New Hampshire and one to Florida). I also use mine for business travel from time to time.

I must admit, however that more and more of our "camping trips" are local (within Kentucky). Those darn gas prices.
