Hubby wanted SOB & showed me a hunk of junk (which is being kind) that he thought would be price friendly & a fixer upper. I shuddered as I walked through a rusty hunk of junk. Next weekend I found a 1974 Argosy for sale, took Hubby to look at & it was in great condition for a 45 year old trailer but definitely needed lots of work. He caught aluminitus that day & bought it, fixed it up in 2 months (new floor, new subfloor, new tire, pAinted inside, new hot water heater, new mattress, etc) & we started camping & haven't looked back. Hubby said no new trailers last this long & I think he is right. A year later he bought a 1990 34 ft & did some more repairs (tires, new air conditioner, mattress, new sofa) & we love this trailer too!

I didn't know you COULD avoid potholes on those roads.......

We went looking for $30,000 SOB's at a multi-brand dealer, and of course there were Airstreams on the lot. We walked into one and that was it, we just couldn't look at anything else. Not sure how they make something appear to have so much more room than trailers that have slide outs but that's the illusion and we like it. I ride Harley and BMW motorcycles, and as someone else pointed out earlier, nothing comes close to timeless design.
I just ordered it a few weeks ago so still waiting and have to say, our dealer experience has been very disappointing. They should do what Infiniti and Lexus do which is to create a different buying experience deserving of the Airstream and it's price.

I agree with the timeless design part.
I ride a Road King.
It's style- like the cars from the 50's-

Timeless design

"nothing comes close to timeless design"

I couldn't agree more! I feel the same way... I would never even consider anything else because I don't like looking at most RV's, let alone how they feel on the inside.

Just finished my first day of training on the 2017 Touring Coach here at the Airstream Factory. Fascinating. I learned a lot... and am really impressed with the attention to detail and the thought and care put into every aspect of the product. I can't imagine buying anything that doesn't have these features in it, frankly.

Tomorrow is a day about travel trailers :-)

Thanks for all your feedback, everyone!

On the job...

So, I've started working in the Airstream dealer in Buellton, CA (just north of Santa Barbara). Your feedback has been read and re-read and I thank you again.

Haven't sold one yet but I've talked to a lot of people about Airstreams in the last few weeks. Knowing how many owners feel about their AS helps me talk about them with conviction. I've also answered a few questions by searching through the forums.

Taking our Silver Seed up to Napa next weekend for a wedding. Can't wait!!

Onward!!

For me it's the style mostly.
