Before we bought our Foretravel I thought we'd probably end up with a 'Bird. The nagging thought was that most of the people on WOG spent a fair amount of time fixing things after every trip. That made me a bit nervous.
They are heavy, though, and use hydraulic jacks for leveling. One 'Bird owner mentioned to me that he has made some "big impressions" with his coach in church parking lots. It seems that he frequently goes to various churches for periods of time and parks on their lots. Those lots aren't meant for 50,000 pounds to be there for long periods of time, and he said that he has done a fair amount of damage.
How much does an Airstream 345 weigh?
