That sounds a bit harsh Jim! We are all just like you, trying to enjoy life, pay the bills, and stay healthy. Some days are better than others, but we have to keep trying.

Always keep waving.

Do not expect a wave, I am done with as people ans as. Jim

Been there done that and went from there to my AS. Got tired of not having a place to sit except the kitchen booth or the bed. Got tired of sitting on a wet comode when the wife was done in the shower. Got tired of falling out of the bunk, hitting my head on the way to the head. Got tired of needing to dump way before I wanted to move. Got tired of the wind almost pushing me over and my brakes wearing out prematurely. Other than that, I liked it.

The best of both

Jim,

Why not do this and have the best of both worlds?

It's OK about the waving thing, I never wave to the truck camper people anyway.

Enjoy your new toy and life.

I'm still new at AS but you're saying we're not required to slash our wrists over this or anything, right?

There has got to be something going on under the surface here.

When I stopped riding my BMW motorcycle and started riding a Triumph, I was not at all mad at the BMW riders. They are still a great group of riders as a whole- probably the best group you would ever meet on the road. I still go to their rallies when I ride.

I have to agree with you there! Somebody crossed him somewhere.

Hi, I can say that the truck/campers had a huge advantage, cost wise, when taking any of the Ferries in Alaska. They charged by the foot. At 44' and around $3,000.00 I/we chose to drive all of the way. [no Ferries for me]

Fair Winds to you Zig! Airstream ownership is not cheap nor for everyone. Never had a truck camper but many VW camper vans. It's a lot easier to hit the road with only four wheels on the ground. Enjoy the simplicity of your truck camper.
