no guarantee that the kids will give a hoot down the road.
I'd wait and look next year or two for a gently used one as mentioned.
I'm not big on buying much of anything new any more.
Just like harleys many find it isn't their cup of tea and you'll save thousands.

If you're at the 'Bend, drive just a few more miles West and check out the Texas Airstream Harbor (TAHI).

Also, pay attention to the comment about the kids - bad investment - and they DO keep coming back.

One of the guys here at TAHI just brought in a brand new Land Yacht. While she was taking a tour of it my wife made a comment that she just met her next husband - I think she was serious.

Take a little picture of it and hang it in the bathroom and write the price of it in the biggest numbers you can and after a few day pack some suit case and put by the front door and tell him a realtor is coming to sell the house if he still wants it.

PS, KEEP YOUR TICKETS AS IT MAY BE THE ONLY THING TO FALL BACK ON.

I've gotten to know one of the salesmen at Bay Area Airstream, and while I wasn't in the market, I really wanted a look inside the Land Yacht when it first came out, so he gave me a tour. If it had just been me, I probably would have bought the thing. But my wife didn't like it, and I wasn't really in the market anyway. She didn't even know how much it cost; those were just her impressions from the tour. The salesman commented that my experience was pretty typical, in that men seemed to like it but women didn't. He had given a half dozen other couples a tour with the same result. I can sort of understand that: only two burners on the stove, no oven, limited counter space, etc., plus the general ambiance of a yacht, which might be more appealing to a man than a woman.

"What of HIS could you sell to do it?"

I like the way you think, sallye!
He offered up his golf clubs...but not the golf course membership.
Classic empty gesture, right?

Gentlemen thank you for the comments and sound advice.

Hubby spent yesterday afternoon watching the 8 minute film clip -set to music-on the Colonial Airstream site. Trailer porn, I think it's called.

All that naked aluminum, no doubt. Time for you to break out the aluminum foil lingerie, methinks…

WAIT for the 2016's before lusting after a new unit . The ducted a/c will be integrated into the shape of the end caps instead of being a blister on the roof center section.

But if your talented you could get a vintage unit and make it your own for way less and a few years of love put into it.

Oh no...the model on the lot in Baton Rouge is the 2016 model... NOW WHAT Glenritas?

And while my husband is quite the handyman I don't see him fixing up a vintage unit.

Taking all of this excellent advice under advisement.

Help!

Here you both are drooling over the Land Yacht ... and here I sit drooling ... wishing I could trade up from our Sport to your 2013 27' FB International. What's wrong with this picture?
