Well, I'll bring this thread back to the top of the page, I am a fairly young (39 for another month), single Airstreamer, been full-timing since October of 2010. I was born in Asheboro, NC and had never lived anywhere outside the county I was born in, I'd never even spent more than one week at a time outside of it. A few months ago I sold most of my possessions, bought my former boss's 1988 345 motorhome (that he bought new and I had lusted after ever since) did a little overdue maintenance on her while parked in my parents driveway, made a couple of short trips to make sure everything was in good operating order then I took off planning to see America. I am divorced and I am traveling with my two dogs Kirby and Suzie. They are a lot of company but you don't get too lonely Airstreaming. Right now I am staying at Penn Wood Airstream Park after leaving Alumapalooza 2011 and plan to stay here a couple of months before heading further into the North East then pointing this big silver bullet West. I have nothing but time and no real schedule, if I find a place I like I stay for a while. If a place I wanted to stay a while isn't all I expected it to be I leave. It's a great life so far and I hope I can see at least all 48 contiguous states before returning to NC (If I ever return!?!) I had long dreamed of life on the road and finally realized the only thing stopping me since the divorce were all my possessions so I ditched them, all but my Harley which is my toad and I am living out my dream and loving every minute of it! I hope to see the singles network idea pick up, unless I am missing something it doesn't appear that much has materialized since the start of this thread. Are people still interested in the idea of a singles network on the AIR Forums or is there one and I'm just not seeing it? Well, that's my story, I hope some of you can relate and I'll see you on the road! Added a few pics, First one of my Airstream, the "ALUMABUS" outside the service center at The Airstream Factory in Jackson Center, Ohio, the second one of Kirby riding calmly in my lap on the way to Penn Wood and the third one of Suzie relaxing on the engine hump.

There isn't a specific sub-forum for Airstreaming singles here on the Forums, but there are at least two orgnizations out there for single Airstreamers. Probably the oldest and at least until recently, the most active, the Wally Byam Caravan Club Free Wheelers -- most large rallys have special parking for the Free Wheelers, and the Free Wheelers have nightly social hours much like the Vintage Airstream Club. There is also a Yahoo Group for Airstreaming Singles. The Yahoo group for Airstreaming Singles has never really taken off, and posts are infrequent at best to the group.

I was a Free Wheeler until October of last year when I found my soulmate. . . I enjoyed my 16 years as a Free Wheeler, but a new life chapter has opened for me that I had never anticipated.

Enjoy your adventure!

Kevin

Any ideas?

I am a very curious person who loves to try many new things.

Have seen many RVs and Airstreams on the road and have always thought that I would like to been a passenger/helper on a trip to see what it is like.

I am 71, male, live in GA, retired and have been in over 65 countries. I'd be willing to pay more than my share of the on the road expenses.
Any idea of how to meet up with someone who is interested.

JPK 2000,
I suggest you look up "WIN" (wandering Individuals Network) as well as "LOW" (Loners on Wheels). Many women who travel alone might enjoy your company. good luck.

Thanks HCR for your suggestion. I am still looking for a navigator's position. Just to update my status: single, 62 year old female without an Airstream, living on the west coast. I am willing to share in expenses. I can bring a lot to trailering. Retired and free to travel.

That's how I feel about my 22! It's my space and I like it!

I was just recently camped on some family's property in Colorado and if I hadn't had my escape pod to go to every night there would be two people decomposing in Montorse After leaving their house I had to find a campground on a river without cell, internet or tv just for some peace & quiet.

Yes, 21-23 foot trailer can be cozy. But two can manage well if you are good traveling companions. I wouldn't try it in a Bambi. A smaller trailer is much easier to deal with all around. My offer still stands if anyone is interested.
