Looking to buy an Airstream, 16' or 23' trailer to place on my brother's land

Have started to look at the International and Ocean Breeze, 23', to place on my brother's land outside of Bozeman but am a little overwhelmed with how to learn the nuts and bolts of running this. Should I start with a Bambi or something tiny? How difficult would it be to get in towed in and out of Bozeman? I do not intend to tow it myself. Anybody have any reading or suggestions on learning the realities of this sort of undertaking? I would like to place it on his land for summer and then perhaps store it in Bozeman. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I love the Ocean Breezes they are really cool. As for your worries I think they are unfounded. If somebody else is doing the towing, why worry? The new trailers are pretty simple to run and maintain. If you are buying new, any dealer worth their salt will not let you off the lot until you are intimately familiar with every system on the trailer, its use, and maintenance and there is always the forum to get answers. Good luck and keep us up to date.

Should be quite do-able, and easy to take care of if you learn the basics... you can do it!

And you will enjoy it!
