We sold our Airstream

In preparation for our road trip down into Central America, we have sold our beloved '95 Airstream Sovereign 21 ft.

We purchased it in October 2012. I did some digging today and found out that since that date, we have used it for a total of 274 nights!

This includes our road trip up to Alaska (7 months), but still, I thought that was a good number of nights to have used the Airstream since we only owned it for 15 months.

We have a bought a slide-in truck camper for our Central America road trip since we didn't want to take the shiny AS down there ... but hopefully in the future, we'll be proud AS owners again!

Stick around. Airstream or not it would be nice to hear ( see ) reports on your adventures.

Good Luck. Have a great trip. Keep in mind that, after having visited Panama and several trips to Costa Rica, I have found that driving rules and regulations, as we know them, are a mere suggestion. Drive carefully.

My Airstream has covered lots of miles in Mexico but if I were going to Central America it would be in a van camper or slide in camper of an older vintage that can be worked on by a shade tree mechanic. RV parks are sparse south of Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast and everywhere else in Mexico. Often the available camping is in a motel, ballanero (water park) or parking lot somewhere. Even a small Airstream is too big.
Have a great trip and post about your adventures.

If you haven't already, is a blog worth reading, especially the section where the couple is taking a VW camper van all the way to the bottom of Argentina.

Pat, the author, and his wife now have two kids and after years of living aboard a yacht have just purchased a 1966 Dodge Travco to explore South America with their family.

I too would invite you to stick around, I'd love to hear about your adventures.
