The Airstream diaspora

ardean-miller-1 (1)At the moment, when you search “Airstream blog”, you get 5,970 results! That amazes me. Assuming only 1% of Airstream owners actually blog about it, that’s a lot of Airstream lovers. That’s enough to justify the many “best Airstream blog” articles – which to be sure are mostly just a good way to help out the rankings on your ad-supported site. But still. You’ll find they range from the practical (Adventures of Dave and Ann – in case you want to update your solar and inverter wiring) to the prolific (many candidates, but Alumarium is pretty good) to the dream-inducing (Tin Foil House, and too numerous to mention) to the ad overloaded. And those are just a few I’ve sampled so far, the ones with titles I like. Bruce has a good long list. Want to kill a few hours? Airstream blogs are a good way to do it.

  1. Hi So you have taken the leap and I am working towards taking this giant step… Being from Australia there is so much to look into..visas, what to travel in?? Why did you choose airstream? Im guessing you are from USA. I only recently found out that if you buy an RV in America you can only take it into Canada for a short while..really why? Hoping to buy and sell an RV when we arrive. Join the The Good Sam Club and off we go. Look forward to your updates. Thanks for posting Cheers from down under Liz and Larry

    • Hi Liz and Larry – That’s very cool that you’re considering going exploring here in an Airstream! Yes, we’re from the Seattle area, and we’ll be traveling the US for a year. We bought a 25′ Airstream – of all the trailers and RVs we looked at, it was the only one that was aesthetically pleasing enough that we thought we could live in it for a year! We bought it used, and we plan to sell it after we’re finished next year, but who knows – maybe we’ll love it so much we’ll keep it and head back out on the road sometimes.

      I wish I could give you some advice about the Canada question – I hadn’t heard that before. And on the Good Sam Club membership – I think that does give you some good discounts, but one thing to be aware of is that the more off the beaten track you want to go, the less likely you are to find them. Also, we’re finding that the state parks and forest service campgrounds are so much prettier than the private RV parks that we’re rarely staying in the private parks. We had decided to wait before buying a membership, and now we’re glad we did because I don’t think we’d use it that much.

      Thank you for your comments, and let me know when you’re heading this way and where you want to go. If I can, I’m happy to share some good places to stay and things to see! Happy travels —
