Airstream Pros and Cons 48 hours in

Forty-eight hours into my trailer experience with the Airstream, I thought I would offer some pros and cons. I haven't had it registered and titled yet in my home state so this is purely reactions to my drive home.

Airstream Pro: I got tired driving home, so I pulled into a rest area... and rested.
Airstream Con: I didn't get much rest due to people knocking at the door to look inside.

Airstream Pro: She tows a beaut at 65 mph.
Airstream Con: She doesn't travel through time at 88 mph.

Airstream Pro: All the people waving as they pass, you would think the trailer was farting rainbows, kittens and puppies!
Airstream Con: The thought of a trail of kittens and puppies saddens me.

More later; after I've camped in her once or twice.

Well articulated Ian:

Good to hear the trip home went well... I have to do the same thing in the next couple weeks (28' Flying Cloud) with collection point on the other side of the Rock'y and about 2400 km away.... With luck my trip will go as well as yours!

By the way, what are you towing with?
