Wi-Fi.

This will be easy for you experienced travelers.
Do you find the Wi-Fi signal is blocked by the metal exterior? The signal that many campgrounds provide free.

How do you manage storage?

I'll throw in my $.02.
For full timing, if you desire space, get a fifth wheel. You'll have the tow vehicle to take to the store, and if one or the other needs service, you won't be stranded. I...

I too would favor the Tundra.
I Googled the vehicle towing guide, and the Honda was limited to 5000# IIRC. That's at the low end of Airstreams.

But, money aside, the Tundra will get 12 -17 mpg...

Yes. I'm always amazed that people vote for the same people who tax them to death. Where is it written that government never has to do with less, but I do?

I'm shocked. I believe you, but "stress on the frame"? The AS weighs 8000 pounds, and the company fears the frame might be damaged by a 30# bicycle?
Now, maybe the bumper is fragile, but I would...

"If your idea of roughing it is the ice maker is acting up" You're a glamper. (That actually was me for a few years.)

The high end floor heat uses hot water circulating utilizing a diesel burner. I don't think that's practical for a trailer. Also, the lack of storage bays means the floor is exposed to the elements....

Ixnay on the onlay.

People are slobs. Cigarette smoke/burns, broken things they don't know how to use, plugged up drains. The list is endless. I barely tolerate guests when I'm there!
