Maybe we drive a Chevy Bel Air.

I wondered about that too. My in laws have one of those huge Montana 5th wheels that looks like it comes from the 80s. And I think it might have something to do with target market. That's when they were deep in the raising of 7 kids (their stick house looked kind of like that) and they were probably looking forward at that time to today - so the decor hearkens back to a time they felt younger and were dreaming about this phase of their life?

What do I know? 😁

This has me wondering about the demographics of Airstream owners. I assume the large majority are 55+ retiree / baby boomer types. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!) Does anyone know of any hard data on that? Surely somebody's marketing department would want to know.

We like Airstream because they are simple, classic, durable, unique, easy to pull, easy to park, and quality that holds it's value.

Some of you might disagree with some of that statement but it comes from many years of RV's and many different types of them. We have had one or two of them all in our 35+ years of RVing.

They say that wisdom comes with age. I guess they are right because our last 3 RV's have all been Airstreams! Wish a we had started sooner and saved ourselves a bunch of money and headaches.

I don't know the demographics, but when we were younger we had no money and were good with tent-camping and sleeping with rocks in our backs. When we got too old for that kind of discomfort and had some discretionary funds, the AS Bambi was really the only RV that we liked.
