More than one....

It is an addiction which no real Airstream lover can ever get past. We have a wonderful new Safari and currently I am looking for two older Airstreams. One for us to restore and one for my brother. While we were traveling back from Yellowstone last month we saw way too many forgotten Airstream in fields. If we weren't towing one behind us you could be sure we would be knocking on doors. Finding restorable vintage Airstreams in New England isn't always easy. But one is just not enough!

PS: If any of my fellow AS'ers find or know of one that needs rescue in NE please let me know.

Rick

Hi Rick, good thing you weren't looking in August, in your own backyard.

I beat you to it!

Well, I sort of bought an Argosy in 1992. Then I sort of bought an Excella last year (and drove 1,000 miles to go get it).

Then I did some poking around in the Argosy and found some stuff needing work. So, instead of selling it, which was my original intention, I've decided to keep it and repair it.

I find myself walking around it thinking about taking it camping. It SURE DOES tow nicely and it SURE DOES have a nice-looking shell. It actually has far fewer miles on it than my Excella.

So this is a bit of a non-answer. I have two because I had one and got another one. I upgraded.

Finally, i wonder if that 'll be a great solution for me to get another one; the one i own as my second house in FRANCE and another one for the USA... As I plan to get more and more time, each year, in your fabulous country, why not to buy an another vintage airstream that stay there and that'll be my second house in US....
HUMMM .....

Bruno,

go for it! That is what we consider too, as soon as we can afford a second TT and TV for the USA/Canada...

One Airstream is too many, and two is not enough.

Hi the community;
When you have gotten more than one, are they all in the same places or do you let them in each locations you stay in vacation?

Hi Bruno,
Currently mine are both on the same 40 acres, but one is up by the barn, which is about 1/2 kilometer from where the other one is THE PLAN is to get the 75 back together and use it for travel to and from events, then the 80 is going to get a full custom interior, we still have not decided if it will be for me to live in while working or to use it a mobile sales office for my wife's bridal business. If it goes that route I will have to use the 75 to live in and get another one to travel with

I kind of look at it as; 1 short range trailer (weekends) small easy to get into tight places, such as older National Parks. 1 Long range for travel across country with room to get real lazy as the day requires (rain, sleet...).
I had to take out my big garden along the side of the house to build a pad to keep them. Larger size house on a postage stamp size lot, suburbs not my first choice but that is where the work is.
"Why do you climb mountains? Because they're there." Some may say we have more than one because it is an addiction, well I say "at least it keeps me from hanging around in bars". I may someday sell them off but I don't feel like fighting the wife about them right now.

One small, driver, to go on short weekend trips, One larger for the comfort of it all, One to work on and make nice, and one for parts to feed the habit

Oh yeah the 20' is an awesome PARTY rig!
