Awesome looking equipment! We had one across from us in Camden Hills State Park earlier this month. Very interesting rig.

While it's NOT a TT, the AVION cabover fully restored could suit me just fine. I'd have just the person in mind to restore one for me too.

If Boles Aeros had not existed I probably would have had two Airstreams.

Artic Fox, and I like the Jayco Eagles, too.
And, of course, an Avion or Silver Streak - if someone else had already done the restoration.

Hi, actually the GMC motorhome had a rear air bag suspension. They were, and still are, a very nice set-up.

If Airstream never existed, I'd probably have looked at what was out there, and kept my boat rather than buy an RV.

My Mother has a Born Free 22 and loves it! Its made very well and has similarities to AS. I like the pluming in her rig, built in winterizing connections. Also all the bays, water heater and water connections are at waist height so you don't have to bend down to hook up etc. She's 72 so it comes in handy.

We switched from a BOAT (Bring On Another Thousand) as well. We loved the boat ... but we also love our Airstream and it has been much more affordable.

New TT wise, if I wanted to spend the bucks then an Arctic Fox. If not, perhaps another Jayco, we had good luck with ours and they have/had? a great 2 year bumper to hitch warranty. Dollar for dollar a good RV value.

If a 5er, maybe a Carriage, they are pretty nice.

An Earthroamer would be sweet if I was going to be able to use it. I saw the first one ever in the flesh in Los Alamos (parked in a yard) a couple of weeks ago, pretty cool. Born Free makes a very nice "C" if I was going mainstream.

I use to dream of doing a bus conversion (Prevost, MCI, Eagle etc.). But now that I have been Rving for a number of years, I don't think I would like the limitations (camping site size wise) that these units have to deal with.

Vintage wise, maybe a Silver Streak, they are pretty cool.

That said, I'm glad they made Airstreams.
