Australian Interest

Hi We are a married couple Chris (American) and Jenny (English) working towards our goal of coming to the States and travelling round in an airstream trailer, picking up casual work as we go.

Although Chris was born in the USA he hasnt lived there since he was a teenager. We would be interested in corresponding with anyone with similar interests, who can put us in the picture on costs, camping fees etc. and any hidden pitfalls we wont know about. Also it would be nice to build up a network of like minded individuals who we could meet up with along the way.

As we have family in Virginia we will be starting our trip from there,so intend to purhase our vehicle in that location and hope to be travelling for a couple of years or so. We both enjoy meeting new people so we await your news.

Jenny ans Chris

Hi golcarlily2, and welcome to the forums, I would first decide on what size trailer that you would like to have, after you find the right trailer that you both feel that you can live in for a couple of years. Then you will need to think about the right TV to safly pull your unit down the road. There are alot of threads on TV versus trailer size and wheight, use the search feture to find these threads to learn more on this. If you have a ? just post it, there are plenty of people to help you out on this forum. Sounds to me like you have a good plan, I know that there are many here that would love to do the same thing. I full time in mine, just me and Tye, my Yellow Lab and sometimes my 31' seems small but all in all I love it!

Welcome Jenny & Chris!

I hope you find a suitable AS to travel the USA! We have courtesy parking in our area (Oregon) that you would be welcome to use if you get out this far! Check out the courtesy parking on the forums.........and if you have any favorite places you want to should zero in on them to see if anyone has places to stay! We would also like to visit Australia and travel your country (although not as long)! Maybe we can work something out!
Could be the start of something big!

Airstream Life and Courtesy Parking


If you in the central New York area, stop on in for some good ole Courtesy Parking - free! Join the WBCCI, and you'll get a book that lists people around the country that offer Courtesy Parking. Also, check out Rich, Eleanor, and Emma on Airstream Life's Tour of America, friends of ours that sold their house in Vermont and are touring the country. Good Luck!
