Hi All...what a great site! I was trying to find info on Airstream products, etc on some of the other RV sites and I could not figure out why there were very few responses...that's because everyone is here!

I look forward to learning more about AS and the tow vehicles. I have already read enough...and looked at the AS product web site...to know we would probably look at the "larger" maybe 27'-31'+? I/We have backed away from the Class A and Class C market with the thought of combining your daily driver (a BIG 2500 something...maybe Duramax) with a TT. One less vehicle to manage/maintain...or to worry about if you were no using as much as you hoped!

I will watch and read...and maybe ask an occassional question...Thanks...Tom R

Thanks...my wife and I just spent a week in Saint John, NB...my wife's mother was from SJ. Beautiful territory...we wanted to get to Nova Scotia but time would not permit. Do you live there or just visiting? TomR

Welcome, TomR from Two Harbors! I think we'll be making that North Shore drive from Duluth to Grand Marais in a couple of weeks. We've always stayed there in July-August, so this later time will offer some changes, I imagine. Two Harbors seems like a very nice community with its great bayside hiking trail, light house/museum, and shops. I always think we'll camp there some day, but so far, we travel on north. Enjoy the AS hunting--your Airstream will show up and surprise you soon, we hope! ~G

Welcome Tom from Minnesota. Where is Two Harbors. I lived in Hallock many years ago. This is the place to become an official "Aluminut"

TomR. Welcome. We are transplants from MN and enjoy the Northshore drive. The MN Airstream Park in Clearwater MN seems to have an occasional used AS for sale so it might be worth calling the park office for listings. The right one will come along.

Two Harbors is right on Lake Superior...just NE of Duluth!...winter is coming soon!...TomR in Northern Minnesota

When I lived and worked in Hallock (NW corner) my boss was in Duluth and I traveled there often. Many fond memories, even in the winter.

TomR,
I live just a few minutes from you in Cloquet. As you can see from my avatar I have been bitten by the AS bug quite badly. We currently have 3 AS trailers and use them often. We also own shares in the Minnesota Airstream Park in Clearwater close to St. Cloud. We travel up the shore every year and almost always do our Spring shake down trip at Burlington Bay campground in Two Harbors. If you have any questions or need any assistance please contact me. Welcome aboard. Brad

Hi Brad...wow is that shinny! Let me know when you head to Burlington Bay...I just "cruised" through there today to "take inventory" as I call it!...what is your tow vehicle?

TomR in the country outside of Two Harbors...eighty acres...plenty of space for an AS "shelter"!

Bradjun1 08-30-2006 08:28 PM

tow vehicle
 
Tom,
We have a 2002 Chev 2500HD with the Duramax. I also use it as my everyday driver. It just turned 80,000 miles without a problem. We just returned from a 5 week 5900 mile trip and got 15.22 mpg. The power is also great. We have owned 4 AS of all sizes and ages so if you need help deciding which one is for you maybe we can help. Have fun hunting. Brad

Streamer23...you weren't in Saint John w/your AS during first half of August were you...I seem to remember that Tin Can license plate?????
