We have a Holiday Rambler 22' - redone - complete with pup condos (of course). It's as square as it gets - tandem so it's balanced and pulls ok.

Hey Botdoc...no current Airstream at all.

I have scoured Tin Can Classifieds, Ebay, Craigslist, and the private boards. I believe I was in talks with Maggie about her 65 before it sold. There is a FAN on TCT, but the interior was painted stark white, and the setup is not great at all.

I'm wanting to spend around $8,000 tops, and while there are trailers out there, they need alot of work.

Have looked at the T@B trailers, but they really won't fit all 3 of us. I have found a teardrop with a bunk and a pop out on one side that looks really cool though.

Steve

Ditto what Marcus said in post #9 above.
Money invested in an intermediate "unit" will only disappear when it's time for you & Amy to rejoin your AS family. Keep shopping for AS's!! And good luck.

I'd go with a Montana, Holiday Rambler, or Sunnybrook less than five years old, either travel trailer or 5th wheel.

I do think the old Scotty's are cool, but they would be too small for us. I'm also squeamish about buying any old RV with wood framed walls.

Have you looked into any of the fibreglass trailers like Boler or Trillium? They come up for sale periodically and have a very loyal following. Newer manufacturers of fibreglass include Escape RV, which is gaining popularity here in the West.

Not entirely. If we get 1-2 camping seasons from it, the loss wouldn"t be so much when we sold it because of all of the good times and memories we had in it. Not like the 9-10K loss we took on our Airstream. Compared to the Stream, any loss would be negligible.

1978 Argosy 24

After we sold our 1971 Overlander last year we bought a 1988 Terry 21' pull-behind to fill in the gap while we re-hab our 1978 Argosy. We paid $1300 for the very clean Terry and immediately put new tires on it for another $500+ to get it safely home. Everything works and we have camped several times successfully. Having a SOB just makes us want to hurry along the re-do of the Argosy. Be sure to check the NADA guide for the market value of any used camper that you buy- it helped us pay a fair price for it. And BE CAREFUL about water damage- the SOBs just don't compare to AS when it comes to structural integrity.

Good Luck-
Kathy

1972 Holiday Ramler

I've got a 1972 22' Holiday Rambler that I use as my hunting trailer. We completely restored/updated it inside and out. We did all this 3 yrs. ago. The following year we found our 65 Safari. The Rambler is a very nice trailer by itself but does not compare to our Safari. By the way the 72 Rambler is listed at 4800 lbs. (dry) our Safari is listed at 3800 lbs. (dry). I can really tell the difference when we pull them.

There are plenty of places that rent RV's if you find no other way to get your camping fix.
