Did you know that, according to research done by Airstream in 2006, 60-70% of their trailers are still in operation? The company has been around since the early 1930’s, which is quite a bit of time for all their vehicles to still be traveling the highways and byways of the world. The iconic look of the Airstream definitely helps it stand out, especially since there are more competitive vehicles in the running these days.
Not only do families love the look of the Airstream, it has also become popular with corporations, as well as various branches of the government, like NASA. Pairing up with professionals in other fields has been a terrific move on Airstream’s part, such as when they teamed up with the Italian yacht designer Mauro Micheli to produce some of the Land Yacht models.
One of the best features of the Airstream Land Yacht is that, due to its narrower, smaller build, it has less bounce and reduces wind resistance, making for a smoother, more comfortable ride, which, if you’re used to the luxury of having a few drinks in the back while someone else is doing the driving, you’ll definitely appreciate.
Here are some things you should know about the lifestyle before buying or building an RV.
You may actually be off-grid, meaning that you may need to provide your own electricity, water source, and heat source for the winter. There will most likely be no “gas company” to pay every month. You will probably have to get the lines run yourself with your own money. The electricity hook-up will be the same. As for water, you will probably need a well. Many water wells are electric these days, so you will need to account for that fact. Also you will need to decide how you are going to heat your home if you are in a climate where the seasons change. Will there be electric or gas heating or will you install wood burning stoves and fireplaces?
