your family should not buy a trailer

Trust me, as someone your age, and also as someone new to Airstreams - they are not flights of whimsy.

Just face it - your beautiful child now dictates that your backpacking days are over for a few years. Trailer camping isn't the same. Go buy yourself that cabin and spend the time with your kid.

Last I read, some KOA's have Airstreams you can rent for lodging.Check it out and see what you think.
My husband and I traveled all over North America.The AS significantly extended our travel season and comfort level.When breaking camp, it took about 30 mins to be on the road/about the same amount of time it took to break camp when we tent camped for all those years. When tent camping, 3 weeks was MAX. With the AS it was indefinite! And, no wet tents!

Some other reasons to get an AS:
1. Get and old one and restore it. This makes a great hobby and you pay as you go. We got our first AS for $2500 and had it road worthy in 4 weeks. We continued to improve it until we lost the trailer due to damage. (long story)
2. A great place to put up friends and family when they visit.
3. A home or office away from home when work demands it.
