Our Airstream

In 1931 Airstream began with a dream to create lightweight travel trailers that slipped cleanly through the wind. And with it was born another dream, one of new freedoms, new places, new experiences, and new friendships. It was a dream so powerful and so enduring that it did far more than create a new way to travel; it created a new way of life shared by three generations of our family- and thousands of other families.

Our recreational travel capsule is a 2008 Classic Limited 30′ Slide-Out.  Airstream only produced ‘slide’ models between 2001-2009 on the 28′, 30′ and 34′ lengths in the Safari and Classic trim packages.  We’ve been told at the factory tour our ‘Limited’ model is only one of eighty-four ever produced.


Black Canyon of the Gunnison. What a National Park should be; i.e. untouched.

Not all those who wander are lost.  -J.R.R. Tolkien


Calm waters, Gulf of Mexico.

Adventure is where you find it, every place, any place, except at home in your rocking chair. -Wally Byam


The 1976 Sovereign of my youth. Hooked up to a matching E-350. We camped everywhere east of the Mississippi in this one, all 12 of us. It had a ‘Tropic’ screened porch, that basically doubled the living space. I have the best memories of those vacations. That’s my baby brother sitting at the sliding door.

Having all the amenities of home, where-ever you are, makes ‘the journey’ every bit as memorable as ‘the destination’…. not a drop of vacation is wasted. -Boondockdad


On the road, Fox Terrier at the window.  At first it was difficult, but she’s become a great camping companion.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.  -St. Augustine


Sisters on the beach.

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.  So throw away the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover. -Mark Twain

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.  I travel for travel’s sake.  The great affair is to move.  -Robert Louis Stevenson
