New to Airstream Class A

After 13 yrs. trailering, we now have a 30' Airstream Land Yacht. Any suggestions for driving a big motorhome? Anything we should know?

You don't say what year. Regardless you picked a good size for your initial foray into motohomes. It will be easy(er) to drive and get into some of the smaller parks and state parks. Driving forward is easy enough, just watch right hand turns. Backing will take some practice. Make sure you have good mirrors and learn to back with them. And it does help if you have a helper when backing into campsites.

I had a 1994 33' Land Yacht in 2003 and looked to buy a newer one (last year) and my best advice to you is to make sure you have the roof inspected, sealed, and leak tested. I always enjoyed the interior and the looks of the unit. Good luck and hope you enjoy.

When in doubt, slow down and be sure of where your corners are.

After a little bit, you'll get comfortable and realize that at 30' you can go just about anywhere in it!
