Can I rent a 30' Classic???

I am interested in renting a fairly new 30' Classic. Does anyone know where I might find one? We live west of Houston off I-10. I am trying to get my wife interested in Airstreams and feel like this would be a good way to stick our foot in the water without actually buying one. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Carl

If you are near any dealers, that might be the best place to see one. As I said in another thread, I am not sure on any places that rent these coaches. Out of all the RV rental places I have ever seen, I have yet to come across one that rents Airstreams.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

you can have my 34 classic for 2 weeks.....


well trying one is certainly a nice way to get the mate interested....

the dealer in davenport iowa (usadventurerv) has a rental program....i think they have a 22 and 25 or 28 in the program.....these are safaris not classics....but it's still an airstream and some crazy folks actually prefer this model/line.

you'll need to call for the details (brian) but basically you coop/purchase 1-3 weeks for a year and this includes rental/insurance and and so on....some of the details are on their website.

it's not cheap....however if you buy into the program and don't use all of your days and then buy a trailer they will credit your purchase.

it's so much easier to rent a class a....with a trailer there are all of the t.v. issues (hitch/brake controller/mirrors/umbilical and so on) and towing is a bit longer learning curver than driving a big a.

your best bet might be to contact the wbbci unit nearby and buddy camp with someone who is willing. it's also possible that someone has a newer classic at the airstream park....and you could "rent" a couple of nights but without hitching/moving it. the local wbbci unit might also know which member is crazy enough to personally rent out a unit.....i sure would not...and really if you want to meet enthusiastic airstreams and try to get your spouse interested...the local club or a forum rally would be wise steps....

if you are really serious about renting an airstream trailer....the folks in davenport are your only dealer option.....
