Meet Tracy. Our Airstream.


In Autumn we decided to sell our vintage Airstream trailer. It sold in one night, leaving us a little stunned. Our mission was to get a larger trailer, something with built-in bunk beds for the boys perhaps. We looked. We made phone calls. We regretted. I just kept feeling disappointed with what we saw, Dear Husband agreed. We talked and wondered about the true best option for us.

Then Dear Husband did something really crazy, he asked me, “What about an Airstream?” Of course, we just needed a different Airstream. One with a different layout, a larger one perhaps. We made loads of phone calls. Dear Husband got a friend to make the ride to Ohio to pick one up, but left it behind frustrated it wasn’t as advertised. We drove a few hours into Kentucky and left another neglected trailer behind, disappointed again. We kept trying. Then Dear Husband found our gal on Airstream Classifieds! He told me to call first thing in the morning when he was at work. I called the seller at 9:00 am and begged him to hold it for us out in Colorado Springs. He did, we loaded up the boys and dog, and we set out hoping for success, hoping the long drive would be worth it. It was. The sellers were (are!) fabulous, friendly, Airstream knowledgeable people. They spent time showing us around the trailer and answering any questions. Now she is ours.

Tracy (named so because she is our third (tres) Airstream trailer) is a 2001 30′ Excella. She’s got a slide out to give us more floor space when parked and has a better booth/table, bathroom layout, and queen bed instead of our old twins. In short, she’s fabulous. We are ready to take her out.
