Hello! My partner and I have been together for 9 years and we just purchased an Airstream. We have a 2011 23FB Flying Cloud behind a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac.

Looking at the pictures in this thread it looks like there are some age differences between partners and I think that is great. We are 38 years apart and I'm the younger of us and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I know! They will be in the back seat (they fold flat) and I'll have a cover made to double as their bed. I'm still on the fence so to speak as far as a truck or SUV but I'm looking when we get home.

Love the interior color of your truck! Have fun with it. We have a 2008 Toyota tundra but certainly don't see mileage like that! Still love our truck though.. Better love it given where gas prices are headed!

Well, Finlay back in Tucson, I racked up 7,587 miles on this trip. Now I'm having horrible thoughts after this trip. I stopped at several Airstream Dealers looking and I have come to the conclusion that my 25 foot Safari has to go. I need a 30 footer. I just don't have the room for 4 people and 2 bald cats in my little baby. GULP, I'm putting her up for sale (CRYING) She is a good AS, but I need more room. I found a very sutable 30 foot 2011 Flying Cloud replacement in New Jersey at Colonial. ADVICE BEFORE I CALL THEM AND ORDER IT!

Slow down, make sure that this one really would meet your needs. The urgency you feel is self generated, take your time.

Welcome to Airstreaming and the forums! Have fun in your new rig and we hope to see you on the road!

I wasn't even really looking when I found my 30' Classic...It's an awesome trailer and there's only two of us! But like the others said just take your time, look at all your options and THEN buy the 30 footer you've fallen in love with!

I don't see what you tow with but that's going to be a consideration...make sure your vehicle is rated to tow the new trailer safely. The 30 footer is going to be considerably heavier and more rig to move down the road. I went from an 87 29' Soverign to the new 30' Classic and noticed quite a difference.

Go suv. I loved my RX 350 till a guy went through light totaling it. It's great versatility, and always buy a $500 4x8 cargo trailer to haul things around for house. Suv is great for pets too.

I have good friends at the same age difference. Hey it's sounds great to me. My partner is 7 1/2 years younger. Age is just a number.
