6 years ago, I saw on the internet my Cruiser in Wyoming in a parking lot . For 2 years he is now in front of my house and with the expansion I see an end . I have to hurry that I can realize my American dream . Otherwise my heirs have to turn it into a mobile Mausoleum . I was in April 72 ....

When did we get our Airstream?

We were so much older then, we're younger than that now.

Thanks Airstream!

I bought mine at 42 with the idea that once I am done working on it I will be old enough to retire with it at 62.

Old enough to know better, but young enough to keep trying.

I was 35 when I purchased my then 1 year old Argosy 20 Motorhome.

At 73 (now retired) I still have it and after reworking it for the last 2 years, we are planning some more carefree travel instead of the "rushed" 2 or 3 week vacations during the working years.

I was 37 and got it for my wife's birthday. She won't let me post how old she is. It was an impulse purchase. We are both still working with two minors ( 11 & 8 ). Now your turn aftermath

I was 50 & it was 10 years ago we purchased our '61 Overlander. It was just time to get out of a tent and we wanted to keep camping with our sons. It was my wife who wanted a vintage Airstream. Five years ago I opened an Airstream dealership. Now 10 years later I have a restored '75 Argosy 20' MH & a restored '55 Flying Cloud. Purchasing the Overlander that was for sale here on Airforums turned out to be a great decision!!
