Choosing your Airstream to suit your 'wants', not your tow vehicle makes a lot of sense. Although you'll take a depreciation hit on your Yukon, it won't be nearly as much as you'll take on trading a two-year old Airstream to buy another that suits you better.

We decided to do it that way this time, and we're very pleased with the results; both the truck and trailer.

However, I've never been one to keep a car or truck much longer than three years (with a few exceptions.) My first Airstream, though, we had for eight years, and we're planning on keeping this one much longer. Vehicles have changed pretty dramatically in ten years. Trailers haven't changed all that much.

I couldn't agree more with what Roger just said about buying a new trailer, especially a new Airstream. There are a number of folks on the other forums who've been upside down on their vehicle loan, yet bit the bullet and got the larger tow vehicle for the larger new RV they really wanted. Every one of them will tell you they're really glad they did in retrospect.

As Roger said, the loss on a tow vehicle is nothing compared to the loss on an RV.

Hello to everyone!

My name is Sheila and I am Howard's wife. I just wanted to also thank everyone for all the wonderful information we have received from our post.

It has been most fun reading the Airstream Forums over the last several weeks!

Howard and I are looking forward to - hopefully - purchasing a new Airstream here in the near future.

We have been discussing visiting the Vintage Airstream Club Third Rocky Mountain Rally in August since it is so close to us. Circle the Wagons RV Park also has motel rooms and cabins - so we will see!

Thanks again,
