New here

I am completely new to Airstream -- have never owned an Airstream. We have owned two aluminum skinned trailers, one of which we still have. It is 32 ft. long and went with us to Florida last March and returned to Minnesota in mid-April. We enjoy its size and the large slide when parked, but don't feel it follows as well as smaller (or lower) units we towed previously.

The Airstream classifieds are of great interest, and I particularly look at those which might be in our price and size range.

D/W and I have celebrated our 58th wedding anniversary and hope to see a few more as we enjoy our travels.

Welcome Snoboy3127

Glad you found us! This is a great community of folks that love all things airstream or just addicted to aluminum in some way. Many of us have had several other brands of RV's but nothing really compares to the way you feel towing an airstream. Maybe it tows better or not... maybe the way it handles a corner is better or not but what I do know is nothing makes someone smile like an airstream does! Hope you find what your looking for.

Welcome to, snoboy. The classifieds here are a good source, but so is craigslist. It can be worth keeping an eye on as well, since the usual way to use it is to look for local buys.

I understand the was converted to some new flavour of now, thankfully it is still stand alone up here.

Oh, I see that Ortonville is somewhat of a distance from the larger cities, so I guess that you're not going to be afraid to go looking afar for a trailer.

Any how, good luck with your hunting, and have a wonderful 58th!

I have no so big experience of life like her. However, I also gave myself a new challenge and spontaneously bought my Cruiser. The fact that there is an adventure ..... no notion had of it!
There open new perspectives, gives impulses, new experiences, fun.
Very briefly, I am happy with him!
Lots of love from Switzerland to Minnesota!
