Question If Airstream didn't exist, what would you buy?

If Airstream didn't exist, what would your top picks be for a travel trailer?

No doubt about it, a used Avion, a trailer which is in many ways superior to the Airstream, except in styling and interior natural light.

I think Holiday Rambler is a decent brand. Also, I was once told their club has none of the drama of a certain Airstream owners' club...

Maybe a New Horizon or an Excel Winslow...Arctic Fox also looks like an interesting choice?

Send a message via Skype™ to Airstream25
My vote is for the Avion as 1st choice ahead of Airstream

A Silver Streak or a Streamline, if they had somehow been developed without AS leading the way.

Probably something like a 19' Escape nearly fully optioned.
19 Foot Escape


Or a 17' Casita. I don't need all of the 25' anyway as a single traveler.

Something that won't leak! I've heard good things about Holiday Ramblers, Bigfoot, anything fiberglass constructed. Something with a full size bed would be nice. I think it would be kind of nice to have something a bit more 'white box'-like and not attract so much attention!

Stef,

Nice bed...but it still might get some attention.

Earth Roamer XV-LTS

Okay, it's not a trailer and it's expensive ... but, if I couldn't have an Airstream, I'd love to have an EarthRoamer.
