Do consider twin bed sleeping. You know Ricki and Lucy Recardo slept in separate beds.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

About 6 years ago, we were in the same position as you are now. We wanted to travel the USA extensively, and were considering going RV to accomplish this goal. We did about six months of research (much of it on these Forums) and shopping, before settling on an Airstream Safari 25 foot Front Bedroom which was a new floor plan in 2005. We found the best price on a left over 2005 model at the Airstream Dealer in Alachua, Florida, near Gainesville. We took delivery of our Safari, which we named Lucy, on June 1, 2006.

We had done some tent camping, but had never owned an RV before. We got a lot of our basic training right here on the Forums. We hit the road immediately, not knowing how we would take to the RV lifestyle.

As it turns out, we took to Airstream traveling very well. We keep a detailed Lucy log book. As of four days ago, we had spent 1,013 nights in Lucy, and have towed her almost 90,000 miles. Lucy has been in all of the contiguous 48 states.

As far as an Airstream floor plan that works for us, the 25FB has been perfect. It is small enough to take and camp just about anywhere, and large enough to be comfortable for long trips. We have been out in Lucy for as long as nine weeks straight. Lucy has a walk-around queen bed, two door refrigerator/freezer, and a separate shower (not in the room with the commode and lavatory). We have found that these are Lucy's three best features for real life camping.

Lucy is currently resting in Jacksonville at SuEllyn's Dad's house. We will be back over there in a couple of weeks. Since Woodbine is so close by, we would be glad to show you Lucy if you would like to see her.

Send me a PM and I will give you a direct email and cell number. Here a couple of pictures of Lucy out camping.
