Some of the best memories of my youth, are of camping in my families Airstream.
When my wife and I decided to embrace the RV lifestyle, I couldn’t warm up to anything but a Silver Bullet. Yeah, Airstreams are generally smaller, have less storage, and cost roughly 5x what a similar SOB (standard old box) cost… but so what? I didn’t grow up seeing the country in a Holiday Rambler, or Prowler.
My Dad had three Airstreams. The ’65 Overlander was before my time. The ’76 Sovereign was what I remember, and the ’05 Classic 31′ was his retirement vehicle (That he graciously lent to me before my wife and I decided to buy our 2008 Classic S/O).
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
