A Trailer's beauty are the Boondockers within...
My 25 foot Airstream has some advantages that other equally quality trailers may or may not. What you see is only the exterior. Once you step inside, all travel trailers have similar comforts.
Underneath this thin aluminum skin beats the heart of an Olympian Athlete ready to take on any task or challenge. Two 30 pound cylinders of propane at your disposal. Two AGM Interstate Batteries. LED interior lighting. A whopping 39 gallons of fresh water with a 6 gallon hot water tank, as well. An aerodynamic shape that makes towing in cross winds just that more pleasurable. A brisk headwind will not buck the trailer in tow on open highways in the high prairies of the Rockies. Indeed an air stream.
A width of 8 feet 5" and height of 9 feet 7" can avoid those low hanging branches, that taller trailers have trimmed in advance from their higher clearances when Boondocking. The width manages to slip through those narrow roads with brush/trees encroaching on both sides. I know, I felt the same as the rest of you that an Airstream's place as a trailer was some cozy RV Full Hookup with cable TV service and WiFi. Not as nimble as a Casita or similar more mobile brands, but capable of keeping up once off the paved roads.
A late model used Airstream is most likely used by an older couple who parked their trailer in a RV garage next to the house. That is why a 10 year old trailer looks... new. Well, it practically is new. Most owners baby them and take them out during nice weather and for RV Park comforts. I consider that Trailer ABUSE, in my own way. This makes a used Airstream worth looking at when shopping.
At an RV Show in 2006 we went back and forth between a 23 foot Airstream and a 25 foot Arctic Fox. Both fine trailers. Both double axles which are handy in the event of a flat tire. We decided to buy the Airstream and after the price paid was forgotten, the quality remained an asset. An asset upon resale to buy our current 25 foot Airstream when offered for sale on Craigslist with three buyers in line. For resale an Airstream catches a lot of interest, if priced right. The longer the trailer, the better the deal you can negotiate, since the 16 to 25 foot models have the majority of interest, with those up to 34 feet available for that special person.
Well... now you know my story. Owners of Airstreams are just regular folks like yourselves when Boondocking. It keeps you dry and comfortable. When you get right down to it... Boondockers are such a small group, the trailer brands means nothing. It is like what kind of climbing boot you like to wear. The prices may differ, but the spirit within each of our trailers make it worth traveling and exploring.
