Maybe 45 nights- I forgot about that trip to the coast in November-
The number will increase in 2014 with our first trip being in January.

One 2 day trip with 1 night sleeping in it so far (Lost Dutchman).
Years on the Forum BA (before airstream).
One year of ownership before taking it out.
Tons of time on the Forum AA (after airstream) mobile app primarily.
Planning on one more 2 day trip with 1 more night this year (Picacho).
So 2 nights in 2013.
It can only get better.

This thread is somewhat surprising to me. I Did Not Realize The Bulk Of Owners Had This Kind Of time. We have estimated we will use ours roughly 25 to 40 nights a year depending on if we have extended travel in it. It will mostly be used for weekend travel and 1 week trip a year. Also I have been looking into the possibility of getting hookups at home for a guest house. I wouldn't be able to leave it out all the time but I would hook it up as needed.

The 25' will be for road trips all over the US and Canada for the next 10-15 years (we hope). It will live alone in NC during the winter.

The 34' will live in FL. It will be our winter home from November through March. We plan to do short trips from our winter home as long as we are able. Then we plan to use it at one location after we are no longer able to tow.

It surprises me and my wife too. It may just be that we're hearing predominately from the users?
Chime in folks there's a lot more of you out there.
Thanks

Full timing

I have only rarely slept anywhere other than my Airstream trailer since retiring in 2001. I travel in the northern states during the warm months and southern states during cold months. Several months each year are spent at NTAC (North Texas Airstream Community) while I catch up on doctor, dentist visits and RV maintenance. I estimate that my trailer has over 120,000 miles on it.

I check Hunter's Airstream list and Air Forms usually ever day but only post when I feel I have something unique to say.

For working people 40 nights is a lot. That is basically 20 weekend getaways. That is almost half of the weekends in the year.

My husband is lucky enough to have a job that can sometimes be done solely over the internet and phone. So more than half of our 60+ nights were spent camped in one location with an internet hookup, with him working Monday to Friday and relaxing on weekends. It isn't actually vacationing, but it's a nice change to look out of your Airstream window from your desk and see a deer or a pileated woodpecker.

We are looking at 3 week to week and a half long trips and 4 four day holiday weekends and another 20 or so weekends. That's a lot for working folks. We go every chance we get.
I will keep a more accurate tally in 2014, with the first 4 nights spent at Canopener in January.
We find ourselves going more and more as the years go by. I get 3 weeks per year vacation. Five more years and I will get 4 weeks. I'm ready now.

I prefer to say, "Focused on my interests, not another's." That claimed, the wife and I have logged 40 continental states and 23,000 miles since 2010. We stopped the payroll check addiction a while ago.

Early on, we discovered our Great Danes are people magnets and make wandering a most pleasant affair. Regardless of where we stop, fuel pumps included, we are approached within minutes. There is something addictive about the welcome feeling we encounter country-wide.

I spent all day yesterday and half the evening cleaning out my trailer in anticipation of selling it today. Guy shows up this morning and of course he wants something for nothing. I do not have to sell so am not prepared to give it away.
I did manage to spend about 90 days in the trailer this past year. Plan on spending more next year in either this trailer or my new to me one.

We spent 18-20 nights in ours this year and are planning more for 2014. One trick is getting the trailer outfitted and ready to go quickly, so it's easier to do weekend trips without feeling like the set up and break down takes a ton of time.

Back in the 90's I set up my Airstream at a campground near the beach 3 hours from home, and left it there for years. That was a lot easier to use on weekend trips while I was working, and I found myself using it a lot more. Later when I started storing it at home, and I used it less. That loading and unloading for every trip is a hassle. Back then I camped weekends and holidays Apr-Dec and stored all winter. Since I retired I use my Airstream more during the winter.
