I've been following this thread with interest and it seems to me that most Airstreamers are interested in experiencing the natural environment first and rv'ing second. Most also seem to be very experienced campers and have come to Airstream as a result of both their RV experience and an understanding of what they like about camping. I think that explains a lot about why Airstreams maintain a strong following without having "evolved" like other campers have. Airstreams are perceived as luxury campers because of their cost, but if you think about it, they are pretty basic with simple systems and very few gadgets. What you pay for is solid construction and a look and feeling that is like no other. Like a Klein screwdriver it's simply the best of its kind.

First and foremost, camping for us is about being outside, in a natural setting, with our family and friends. We love sitting around a campfire after a day spent hiking, kayaking, biking, or just hanging around the campground. We almost always stay in state parks or equivalent campgrounds. Age and a desire for a few simple comforts led us to RV's and experience led us to Airstream. They are solid, basic and dependable. And more than any other camper, they bring the outdoors inside with their many windows and bright interiors. That's why we love camping, and why we ended up with an Airstream.
