goodbye Airstream Forums

just traded my safari in on a ceder creek fifth wheel. I will miss the Stream but I just could not deal with the space limitations any longer. We are getting close to going full time and the AS just was not going to cut it. I mean this thing has thermo pane windows, fireplace, full size refrigerator , central vac. a full living room and king size bed. all this for about the price of my AS. Now I know it will not be around for 20 years, but than neither will I, so its one less thing my family will have to get rid of, plus since I am spending all my money thats 2 things they will not have to worry about! Thanks for all the advice and conversations I have had for the past year.

Hi, enjoy your new trailer [fifth wheel] and enjoy spending your childrens inheritance money. We have to enjoy what ever time we have left. We are happy for you.

Why not still haunt airforums?
Just because you don't own an A/S, anymore... doesn't mean you can't contribute... there's plenty of vintage owners who post here...

nyuk, nyuk

And you will have much to offer as a former AS owner that is now hauling a SOB. We'll all enjoy hearing your contributions as an owner of both. Stay close......and HAPPY

Heck! We have no rules about signing up for forum rallies. Do we? Don't think so...

No doubts -- you'd be welcome to sign up, sit around, & tell your stories.

Bob, you don't have to go. You can hang around and let us know how the 5th wheel works for you.

Safe travels and great RV adventures.

No need to run off.
I have hauled many Cedar Creek trailers from the factory in Indiana to dealers all over the country.
They seem to be one of the better trailers. May well last that 20 years and more, after all it is an aluminum frame trailer.

Good Bye

I can understand your choice. I love my 65 22' Safari but I saw the inside of a 26' 5th wheel the other day and wow! I had bump outs and seemed like 3 time the living space. Not the same as a vintage Airstream but very impressive for the short haul. Best of luck....Tim

We saw a friend's 38' 5th wheel toy hauler yesterday - it was absolutely crazy! HUGE inside, bathroom as big as the one in our house, big bedroom, heavy wood everywhere, big screen TV. Unbelievable how much space that thing had inside, plus room for their bikes/atvs/etc. I can see why people decide to move up to something like that instead of the tube (but I still love my 'tube')!
