Newbie - trading Coachman

All my friends have Airstreams and we want one too! I'm tired of our Coachman looking ugly alongside 4+ Airstreams. So... my husband and I have decided to start the journey of finding the perfect Airstream for our family. We have owned a travel trailer for years (Coachman) but have always felt the layout of an Airstream wasn't suited for a family of 5...our chillens are growing up now and we want to make the switch to an Airstream. Haven't done too much research into the different models yet but I know we're interested in one around 30' - we have a friend in New Braunfels TX who restores Airstreams and he does beautiful work. I don't even mind a dull exterior though. I also collect and sell vintage items and always thought it would be fun to stock an Airstream with vintage goodies. I will peruse the site and someday I will own an Airstream too! Lori
