Smile Airstream Unique

Airstreams, be they motorhomes or trailers, vintage or new, ALWAYS turn heads, rolling down the highway, or parked in a field.

Can't say that about your garden variety 20-year old Prowler or Holiday Rambler, that's for sure!

Setting my sights on our first Airstream to be purchased this year. Making a big jump from a tent trailer, and chomping at the bit!

We did it! : '04 Safari 25

We have just placed a deposit on a 2004 Safari 25. It's on the dealers lot and we hope to take possession within a week, all details considered. This site was a source of 'priceless' info, opinions, etc. that helped to verify our decision. I want to thank y'all for being so understanding. We will probably bore you with details as the next few weeks progress!!!!!

Age & health dictate today's actions, have to buy 'ready-to-go'!
The difference between new and vintage, as far as I am concerned, is the difference between buying a 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air, and a 2004 Malibu.
Some like to tinker, some like the classic lines, some like reliability and a warranty. With my Argosy, I am reasonably sure if something breaks, I can fix it. But, since it is older, there is a better chance it will break than if I had a new unit.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
