Compared to you and others I am a relatively newbie at 47 years old.. We have been Airstream owners for ~8 years now and on our 3rd trailer. I really like the trailer we have now but would consider a slide-out if a deal came along. Currently I'm saving some coin to put toward a storage shed for the trailer. My wife and I started with a 1981' Excella II - 22' and then to a 1989 Excella 29' trailer. We now have a 1994 Excella Classic. All have taken a lot of work to get them back into usable shape. I enjoy the trailer projects as much as I do camping.
Our KY WBCCI Unit had an older couple who finally had to retire from camping due to health at age 90. I hope I can make it that long.
