I wondered just how many would respond....
I'd have bet more. Maybe the rest of the people who love their Airstreams are out Airstreaming?

I agree..... I love my new AS. Only 5 nights so far, but she is beautiful, clean and all mine.

Still loving it after 5 months of use. Had a few fixes, but they were taken care of at a top-notch repair center, under warranty, and I learned things in the process. It has made a great beach condo for 4 trips, so far. Next week I get to test out the a/c in the Palm Springs heat. At home it is my favorite place for a relaxing afternoon nap. And I never tire of looking at the inside aluminum walls of my retro-modern spaceship 1st class cabin.

Yes, they are pricey, but as long as I keep using it I am actually saving money over what it would cost to stay in a decent hotel. And it wouldn't be as much fun.

I agree. Our 7 year old 25' International looks great. The PO took great care of it, but it was used and was not kept under roof. We have done some maintenance things, but mostly are having fun. We do want to replace the tires because of age not any blowouts.

We loved our AS (Belle), due to 3 back surgeries between hubby and I, we had to send her to live with another couple who absolutely adore her. We now own a Lexington class B+, its nice, but no Airstream. As you can tell by me still reading the forum, I miss the Airstreaming life (and it is different than regular rving!) day we will own another one, no doubt about it.....

We bought our 27FB International in October at this point it's got probably about 7500 miles, we've spent an estimated 25 nights in it and got home two days ago from our first WBCCI rally.

Our calendar shows another 30 or 35 nights scheduled in 2012 and for 2013 we will be on the road for at least six months probably more like eight.

One very small warranty issue, the fresh water gauge. The dealer who repaired the gauge was GREAT, when we picked up the trailer it was detailed inside and out and that was not the dealer from whom we purchased the Airstream.

The fun we had at our first rally just cements my decision to buy an Airstream, I cannot for the life of me imagine a product that attracts so many great folks in one place. I'm signed up for my first caravan in September and can't wait!!

Not new, but new to us. We've spent the last 4 1/2 months updating the interior and making sure all the mechanical systems are in good working order. We've had three prior shakedown trips and are ready to take-off next week for our Western States tour. A month on the road...longest trip to date. We are absolutely in love with our AS.

The Restart

Just finalized my purchase of a 2012 25' International Serenity. I've never been in an trailer, never towed one, and have no idea how to fix anything. It just seemed right and I know it will be perfect. I knew it the moment I saw it - classic & timeless, tried & true, a shiny bright light symbolizing the end of my tunnel. I now know that my heart won't be broken forever and my life will assemble it's self from the challenges of the past two years. I have no idea where I'll be or what I'll be doing, but it'll be in a gorgeous new airstream! It feels good.

Welcome ReStart. I love my AS, too. And it's a 1992 well-used Excella 29. She does not leak, and the only time she did was because some PO ignored a worn out gasket in a storage compartment.
Sleeping in our AS feels like a safe & comfy cocoon. We've towed her at least 12,000 miles without a single problem-and no telling how many thousands of miles the POs towed her.
We keep her bearings packed (annually) her tires newish, and put new shocks & brakes on when we bought her.
Some folks would bitch if ya hung em with a new rope!

On another thread I posted how happy we are and always have been with our 2002 19' Bambi which we bought new. After purchase, it has never seen a dealer's shop. We have done all maintenance ourselves and the trailer has performed wonderfully. It leaked once through a cracked AC shroud which was easily replaced. Have we made modifications? Yes! Would we buy another one? Absolutely! The two of us and a large dog look forward to every trip with our Airstream.
