Hi, all. Somehow missed this thread in my 2 1/2 years on the forum!
My partner, Sue, and I live in the Seattle area and travel (mostly within the PNW for now) with our two rescue dogs, Pip and Lulu in our 19' FC. Hope to see you on the road!

Hi Steve and Ray here....

We live on the Sound in the small community in Allyn, about 60 miles South of you. We just return from a ten day trip to the Bay area. One of our favorite close in spots is Twanoh State Park on the Hood Canal. It is next to the beach and has great hiking trails. Also dog friendly...we have a rescued black lab mix....we posted photos of her in our 27' FC. Another favorite spot is Port Townsend.....also dog friendly.

Maybe we could meet up sometime? Always ready for new friends for short caravans.

Ray and Steve

Hi Steve and Ray,

Lucky you guys, Allyn is a beautiful place. We were just through there yesterday after a day trip to Mason Lake. Did you take the trailer on your trip? We're planning a 3 week trip to Yosemite (and beyond!) this fall. Haven't done this distance or duration yet so tips are great.
Thank for the clue on Twanoh SP. We haven't been there yet; it looks beautiful.
We love PT also, as well as Whidbey Island. We've done New Years Eve at Ft. Flagler the past couple years. (PT does fireworks at 9pm--perfect for us!)

We took our 28ft FC to the Bay Area….drove right thru down town on a Saturday and over the Golden Gate Bridge. Yikes, those lanes are small. I was afraid to look out the side windows and just hoped for the best. Now that it is over,,,,it was fun.
We also are planning a 5-6 week trip South this fall. Want to do the 5 Parks in Utah and maybe Death Valley……we are still planing although I signed up for the Lottery for a day hike to the Wave for mid Oct.
Lets keep in touch and maybe we can meet up on the road.

Ray

Hi

Ray and Steve here. We go to Port Townsend often. We love Ft Flager as we are both prior military. (Ray, Navy retired). But we also really enjoy the Port Hudson Marina and RV Park…..right on the bay and walking distance to the restaurants and downtown. Plus as a retired Navy guy I love being around boats.
Give us a shout next time your planning a visit and maybe we could meet up.

Ray

Decisions, decisions...

Hello, Friends of Dorothy,

Not sure if this thread is live or not, but as you can see I'm a new forum member. How new? I don't have my Airstream (yet) - but like Lucy, I WANT ONE! Ah, l'amore, l'amore!

I have never trailered before (if that's the correct term), but hauled horses around for years so get the towing part. My spouse and I are restoring a mid-century modern experimental house and I think a little Sport would look sooo perfect in the driveway. Choosing the right one is the daunting part... new or used? 16' or 21'. Dealer or private seller?

The other question that haunts me is - where do I go once I have my Airstream? Traditional campgrounds conjure up images of rampaging kids and blaring bad music. This may be a reach, but I'm ISO pleasing aesthetics and entertaining, charming company. I worry that I'll end up with a lovely little Airstream that hungers to hit the road and then have no place to go.

I'm at a crossroads, should I go check out the Airstream dealership on Monday or test drive a Mustang GT convertible and forget my trailer dream? I live in NJ and Vermont - are there any FoD in the Northeast who would like to show off their Airstream and talk trailer?

My partner and I live in AR. We are naturist and enjoy traveling to naked campgrounds.
We opted to purchase a new unit rather than used. We simply do not have the time to remodel an older unit. Besides, I like the ultra modern feel of the newer units. We chose the Bambi Sport 16'. It's perfect for our needs. Our tow vehicle pulls the unit flawlessly. Passing trucks on the interstate results in very little sway. It has just enough storage for the two of us. And there is enough room to entertain friends as well. We have never regretted our purchase and are completely satisfied with the unit, the dealership/Airstream and the service. You'll find the forums here VERY informative, educational and entertaining.
We had been tent camping for several years before purchasing our Airstream. My entire family owned RV's when I was a child therefore I had some knowledge of the inner workings of the unit.
Before purchasing the unit I investigated several other brands. But the American icon of Airstream stole my heart as a child and I simply could not shake it. There is a "Newbies Guide" book that you can purchase. I bought it well before we pulled the trigger. It is very educational and helpful. I feel we are fortunate to be an Airstream owner and I hope to share this lifestyle with you in the future.
I should also inform you that I have made a personal goal to get our unit out at least once a month. Success so far...
