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 www.campendium.com. 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!

Koos

Good point!

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

Thanks for the feedback about Colonial.

Teddy,
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.

Mike

Newbies

Coke and James here. We're from North Texas and this year on our 30th anniversary as partners we celebrated by getting married. (To copy another post we've read - we met when we were 4 years old ). Last month we purchased a new Interstate Grand Tour and plan to take it cross country again and again. We have two "kids" - Daisy, a 14 year old Airedale Terrier and Chase, a 2 year old Jack Russell Terrier. Our hobbies are playing with cars, travel, swap meets, races and working on our home base. We want to include some visits to racing circuits in our travel including NASCAR, IMSA, F1, etc.

Welcome to Airforums Coke & James. I think you are going to have a blast doing all the stuff you want to do traveling back and forth across the country in a new Interstate.

Safe Travels, Dan

Just Purchased An AS

Hello everyone,
My name is Rick and I live in Houston, Texas. I just purchased an International Serenity 19 yesterday. I will be picking her up on Friday morning and am planning on heading straight to a central Texas state park for a couple of nights. I am also planning on going to the Rainbow Ranch between Christmas and New Years.

Last January, I lost my husband of 23 years suddenly to heart failure. I have been working through everything this past year and am starting a new chapter in my life.

I love meeting new people and am looking forward to seeing you all on the road.
