My husband and I live in Maryland. We purchased our Airstream this past February from Colonial Airstream in NJ. Great dealership BTW, so far, though it takes forever to get an service appointment. We have a water leak coming from under our shower and have had A/C vent covers fall down, 3 so far. We have to wait over 6 weeks for an appointment. Obviously we don't want to use the shower until the leak is corrected.

We have had several trips so far and we love our AS. I am sure you will have no problem finding places to go and visit, from state and federal parks to locally owned rv parks. A Mustang convertible will be around for several years but an AS will last a lifetime if cared for. If you are interested talking Airstream, you are welcome to visit us here in Baltimore, MD.

You'll have more memory makers in the Airstream than the Mustang, and I love convertibles!!

Mike and Adam

Thanks for the reply...

Good information! Thanks for the reply.

I'm heartened to hear that you liked the dealer where you bought your brand new Sport. NJ has a dealership that bills itself as the largest in the country + they have an orientation video to the Sport on Youtube that was very thorough (there are lots of moving parts in Airstreams!). I think I'll give them a try.

You have a good strategy of taking the your Airstream out at least once a month. BTW, love the name "Mini Bar".

My heart cries for Orlando. My thoughts go out to all those affected by this senseless tragedy. May the LGBT community find strength to comfort each other.

Hi Teddy,

There are so many great places to go. I would never worry about that. If you want to go campgrounds - which is a fine way to start - check out It is a great resource for finding the best campgrounds. And you can also start following blogs of fellow Airstreamers (and other travelers) to find out about places to go and trips to take. Blogs I follow are "Aluminarium" (they are the folks who have created Campendium), "Wheeling It" and "The Man in the Maze." The latter is the editor of Airstream Life magazine, which is also a great resource.

And if you have a question about a specific area you want to explore, this forum is full of helpful people who will have plenty of advice for you.

Have fun!

Good point!

You make a good point (car v. AS)!

Thanks for the feedback about Colonial.

There are many different gay or gay friendly campgrounds around the country. Most are located in the southeast but they range from very primitative to full hookups with special event weekends. Campgrounds in the south will be open year round where some out west and up north are only open for summer season.

Two of the largest are Sawmill Campground in Brooksville, FL and Campit Resort in Sagutuck, MI. Super friendly folks, restaurant, pool, big campsites, and you can do everything or nothing. All of them get busy around holiday weekends so reservations are recommended. I have visited other campgrounds in GA, NC, and aware of some gay travel groups too. Drop a line if you need info on those as well.
