Looks great. We live in Calexico. Got our new to us 2001 34 in Sept. 2014. Still have our old 1991 34 on consignment in Tucson. The new one has a slide, no dinette, just a large counter with two stools. Still trying to get used to it. Miss my dinette where we played phase 10 !

Great looking trailer - that's my unbiased opinion.

Here is a short story. After we first got our 34, my wife and I were outside. She went in and after 10 min I went in to find out what she was doing. I went in and immediately turned left assuming that she was in the bedroom. I went to the bedroom and she was not there. I went out of the trailer and she was not outside. I knew these 34's were big but I didn't know you could lose someone in it. I went back in and noticed that she was sitting on the couch. True story; we laugh about it today.

Enjoy your trailer!!!

A visitor to our 34 once remarked he had never been in a travel trailer before that had a hall in it.

CWF,

That is one gorgeous trailer--I can't see one single speck of dirt. I wish ours looked like that **sigh**.

Congrats on the long long trailer

BTW you mentioned it didn't look that big on the sales lot ...

I took this picture of my Casita Airstream next to a 34' and if you squint the 34' doesn't look that big compared to the 13' Casita ... well if you don't figure in depth perception

OR consider length

Do you realize that the Airstream 34 is actually longer than the trailer in the movie "The Long Long Trailer" with Lucile Ball?

The trailer in the movie is actually 32 feet long, although they imply in the movie that it is 40 feet long. I was surprised to learn this.

Wow. It's gorgeous. Congratulations. BTW, I LOVE the dog.
Seriously though, I love the thought of more room, but I've read that it's harder to find campgrounds that have space for anything beyond 25'. I'll be curious to know your experience.

I love that movie and gobble up any factoids about it. Thanks.

If I remember correctly, the book from which the movie was made had the loooong trailer at 23'!! I couldn't believe it! But remember that this was in the very first days of trailering, so anything over 3' probably seemed long.

Vivian

PS the movie seemed to have very little to do with the book at all--totally different plot.

I would like to read the book.
The long, long trailer in the movie is a 1953 New Moon 30'.
