Our six year old Safari Sport is giving us a great time without much fuss. We're hitting 20,000 miles and have been as high as 12k. We're glad we got it when we did as the new ones weigh almost 500# more. Some people hold up their nose at the utilitarian interior but it serves us well and is easy to keep clean. Have had no issues other than the expected skylight cracking which I intend to replace with a Maxim.

It's not a real goat - just tin. Check out the gift some fun local campers left for the Tin Goat in New York a few weeks ago :-) - it was empty, but pretty dang funny!

We've done 10 nights in our 2013 International 19. Absolutely love it. We're not new to Airstream....having traded in our 2005 Interstate for the Bambi. The quality is predictably outstanding. Looking forward to a 3 week trip soon.

We spent the night with the windows open last night. Woke up to birds singing. This is the life.

Back in early May I was experiencing the same thing. It was 6:15 am, actually getting to sleep-in an extra hour (normal wake up for work is 5:15), there was a Mocking bird sitting on the branch next to the bedroom window just singing away. The bird was so loud you thought he was broadcasting through a loud speaker. My wife got up, grumbled at the bird and slammed the window shut. I reminded her all day how she wrecked my morning......

What are you calling new? For a trailer that lasts a long time new can mean the first few years. We bought a 2006 22' CCD in February of 2006. We were hoping to get as many as 12 nights a year in it. We thought wouldn't that be great

If we stayed to our plan we would have around 45 nights in it by now. What a great dream come true. For some reason we didn't follow the plan

We now have camped in our trailer over 300 nights so far. We keep trying to abandon our home. More than once the neighbors have called when we were away to tell us they took care of mowing our lawn

We love our trailer and the freedom we have with it. It's not perfect , it's ours and that makes it the best trailer there is. We can't wait till we are no longer working. Maybe then we can shed the Anchor that we call home

We bought our 2010 23FB last July... We put about 6000 miles on it lived in it for about 3 months for two outstanding extended trips and traded it in last week for a 2012 27 FB Int'l Serenity. We bought both units used but new. Their owners had purchased them but never used them, took the initial depreciation and sold them. Mattresses in plastic, blue tape in the fridge, dry tanks, Welcome boxes/hoses never opened and stickers in the shower... Amazing! We cannot believe our luck!


We loved our 23FB and are really excited about our first trip in the 27.. we love all of the extra room and features of the new trailer. It is amazing the design and equipment difference between the 23 -vs-25,27 and above. It is hard to quantify the difference in trailers without using them. I wish we had looked for a 25-27 in the beginning but is hard to justify the extra cost without realizing the benefit.

Another night with the windows open...I hear geese and birds. Reminds me of the tent camping days.
