It's the last travel trailer you will ever have to buy, it should out live you.

I like the rounded design, especially the interior. After spending all of my indoor life in cubicles of varying sizes (houses, schools, work, etc, etc), it's a nice change for the mind, to be inside the "cornerless" space of an Airstream. In terms of Feng Shui, there's better energy flow with the absense of corners (corners trap dead air, etc.) . . . Then of course there's the WOW factor.

It's cool

No square box for me.

All shined up it is just way cool, it will out live me and be passed on to the children.

And then there's all the things the others have said including this fourm and the folks here.

How Do I Love Thee...

I love mine ('72 Safari) because it's the only place I can sit back and not be embarassed to listen to old eight track tapes! I love those built in speakers.

Ours probably does not qualify for "vintage" but hopefully it has all of the attributes posted above....well, at least most like the engineering (balance, suspension, aero-dynamic shape) which it seems to have.

A big deciding factor in choosing to buy an Airstream was also the fact that you do not climb a stairway to enter. We looked at some SOBs that had quite a flight up; they seemed to sit high off the ground. Not only this they looked like something scared them.

Many years ago, I was serving in South East Asia, and came across an Airstream Land Yacht, in a field.. I had never seen one before - (from the Aussie Outback.) and fell in love with the thing on the spot.

Now, nearly 30 years later, I have my own, much the same age as the one I saw..

I like finding out that I have one of 15 1989 370's and that makes me happy! Also I am puite sure that the najority of airstream owners are right brained (optomistically wacky)

We parked our A/S at my brother's house for a few days over the holidays. The first morning my brother apologized for the wind chimes. "Wind Chimes - what wind chimes" - we did not hear a thing.

The A/S is quite; it is very easy to tow; you have a very peaceful and safe feeling in one! It is just very exciting to just look at one!

Can't explain it!

Lightbulb Tis a no brainer...

Thinking back to all those years wasted..
Man, what I'd give to be able to do those "vacation" trips over again..BUT, with my Airstream`!!
Thanks for the many, many smiles as I read what each has said..
I find my head nodding in complete agreement with each and every comments~!~!
For me, it's the strange sense of peace that folds gently over my troubled soul as I shut the door behind. Hard to really put into words and, I'm sure that at least one of you out there know what I mean.
Time warp? Yep, that too~!
Yet, the memories that await the writing brings each day's awaking with renewed vigor`
leftovers with a tall glass of annie green springs for dinner
What in the world is..."annie green springs"?? I'm afarid I'm stumped there...

The real question to ask, which can sum it up more efficiently is what don't I like best about having an Airstream..... nothing, zero, nada, zip!

You'll have to pry the keys out of my cold, dead, lifeless hands!

She's a beauty, 'twink!

I agree, it would be much easier to answer 'what don't you like about your airstream?' If I think of anything I'll let y'all know
