Just a quick note of thanks. I recall Jammer as one of my learning posts when I restored a 1970 ambassador back in 2009-2011. I was thankful for your shared knowledge and wish you the best in your future

So it comes down to a question of whether you can hold onto the AS long enough to get at least one kid off to college or wherever, and start enjoying longer sojourns with your honey. The Overlander is pretty sweet for 2-3 people. Jury still out here. Maybe sell and buy another in 5 years. We will wait and see this season and revisit next year.
I have a 68 overlander also......welove that thing...
We bought ours after the kids were all gone, and there was finally time for us to do some things just for us. So the dynamic is a little different, but one day, we will be too old to keep traveling, and it will find a new home.....but in my case, I know one of my kids will want it....they all like to camp, and camping does not get any better than in a vintage Airstream !

One does wonder why some posters stop posting. For me it was the security change using e-mail instead of user name. For some reason it changed my user name from streaminwild to streamin72. With my limited computer skills I have no idea how to fix I stopped posting.

We can surely sympathize with your decision to leave RV'ing. While we have only had an Airstream for 5yrs, we have been RV'ing for 30yrs and things have changed. The world isn't so friendly anymore, between climate change, politics, generational friction (boomer/genX'r), etc, etc. RV'ing isn't as relaxing/carefree as it once "seemed" to be. We do it still, so our youngest (2yrs old) will get to see our country's natural/man-made wonders and historical sites (while they still are allowed to exist). We are fortunate as to not have to worry about the deprecation of our AS (1989 Excella) since we bought it near the bottom of its depreciation cycle, lol. When the time comes, our AS will not be sold, but moved to a "legacy" site on our property that we are developing to preserve the essence of RV'ing(to us). While our site will have full hook-ups, it currently has privacy, orchards, streams/hiking trails, a stocked water body, a fire ring, play area and pavilion. This is for our family and future generations to enjoy what RV'ing may (or may not) be allowed to be in the future. All this in an AS that itself is a piece of history and for an initial combined 2012 price (the AS, home and 20acres of land) for less than a 2020 30' AS Classic!! Good luck and safe travels, Jim and Gretchen
