Well I have to say the thing I most enjoy about my '66 Safari is tha it is my little sanctuary. I store it very close to my work, and have many times gone over there with a sack lunch, and just sat in peace in "my " Airstream. I love just sitting at the dinette, and looking at the beautiful woodwork, and amazing craftsmanship of the trailer, the way it was designed. I love the way it smells...kind of like home. When I am out with the family (wife and two little ones), it is just a place of comfort and fun. We have a cabinet below the dinette with just toys and books for my 2 1/2 year daughter, that she opens, and can sit on the floor for an hour and entertain herself with. The other day I had to drop something off at the trailer, and my daughter got out of the car hugged and kissed the trailer and said..."I love you". Nothing matches the joy and memories, that an Airstream can bring to a family. I makes us much closer when we are all inside, and cosy from the wind or cold weather. Airstreams rock!

It's paid for

Once I finish a complete makeover it will be a brand new A/S good for the rest of my life time. Have axles, awning and frig to go. Everything else has been replace or repaired.
I LOVE MY AIRSTREAM

The top 10 things I like about our Airstream are.....

#10. The way it's built, having an aluminum frame instead of wood.

#9. When towing, it's very smooth.

#8. Less wind resistance.

#7. Its 20 years old and I expect to get many more years of service out of it.

#6. The wrap around rock guard on the front! You can see out but you can’t see in, in the daytime.

#5. I like the feeling of security when the door is locked.

#4. Everything about it tells me it's built solid. The sound the screen door makes when being shut!

#3. The space is utilized well, it seems as though every inch of space has a purpose without being wasted.

#2. I like the comments people make about it, most don't have a clue as to its age until I tell them. The comments have always been positive!

And the #1 thing I like about our A/S is...I like the feeling I get when I'm hooked up and towing the rig down the highway.

Kevin,

This is Randy, I met you in La Veta. I just love that story of your Airstream!

Green

One of the reasons I bought my particular Airstream was because it has DARK GREEN carpet. I don’t think I have ever seen another with that color carpet, although I’m sure there are others.

Many of the newer Airstreams I have seen had very light carpets, some even almost white! I knew it would never stay clean looking for long, being used to camp in. Also many from the 80’s have a lot of pinks in them, not really a great color for a “guys” trailer…

My trailer had the dark green carpet, which I also have in my house and I know how well it hides the dirt (not lint though).

My trailers “theme” will eventually lean towards the old Gypsy Wagons, which always fascinated me.

Here’s a few pillows I bought for it

And the PILLOWS really lend themselves to that "guys" trailer look?

Back on topic...

Our Argosy MH is special because of the big rear queen bed. We looked for a long time, and never thought we'd find that layout in an Argosy.

And of course it had to be an Argosy, because we can't bear to be without the vista view windows. We get claustrophobic in a coach without them.

Ummm, you have a point there! LOL
At least they aren't pink!

Actually, most of the pillows go on the couch. I put them all on the bed to take the photo, kind of like a gag.

Hey "Twinkie"

Are you going to up-grade, go to M/H or what? I hope you're not completely abandoning having an A/S
