The Weasel Goes to the Blue Ridge Mountains
We were always drawn to the Airstream much like we’re drawn to any new Apple product that comes out, but Airstreams are heavy and expensive — two of the most major drawbacks on our list. As we studied other RV makes and models, we continued to browse the Airstream Bambi, Safari and Flying Cloud on ebay and check them out at RV dealers always with the understanding that maybe we could get some good ideas on how to redecorate whichever trailer we would end up buying. After all, we’re the Ikea generation — if we can’t own a Saarinen table or buy everything at DWR, we’re going to go after the next best thing.
After seeing two or three Airstream travel trailers in person, we couldn’t shake the fact that the others paled in comparison — the fiberglass boxy travel trailers with their sticker wallpaper border and their odd wood cabinets just didnt fit with us. We could’ve gotten more for our money with SOB (some other brand) but the comfort level we felt — the ‘ahhh this is it’ feeling when we stepped into an Airstream couldn’t be matched.
This picture was taken on our way to Lenoir, NC to see Deke’s Family and show them our new soon-to-be-home, the 22′ 2003 Airstream International CCD we named, The Weasel.
