Interesting the memory cells kicked off reading this thread...
I was 7 years old, walking thru what looked like a 100' space ship with my Dad and his Father In Law. My Gramps and Step Grandma, were swinging by San Diego on a visit before joining the Airstream Club on a trip to the Panama Canal in caravan. They pulled up beside our house with a two tone yellow and white Chrysler 300 convertible, and yes it had a a Hemi, with the Highway Patrol special engine option, two four barrel carb's!!!
I remember my Dad asking Gramps how he liked the Airstream (and I have know idea how big it really was, but I'd put it at between 27-30', as it seemed about 1/2 times longer then the car, which expect was about 20'). He said it was just fine, once he learned to get by with just a few shirts, shorts, pants - and all that he wanted to carry in his 'one drawer' (he pulled it out, to show my Dad 'his drawer' for socks, undies, and T-Shirts). He said that he was 'informed' very quickly, that all of the other storage for cloths, was taken:)!
It really must have been OK, as they made that trip, and one accross Canada in another Airstream Caravan, and they and friends did several loops of the USA too...
Another interesting TT and I see some 5ths too, was a Silver Streak, most had two tone effect, and many were not polished. Walked thru a Silver Streak Contiental about 4 years ago, the owner had just restored it. Very nice cabinet works, and very neat to see it brought back to almost new condition. The owner said 'it's a heavy one', but then again, he had it parked at a local spot he rented in the San Diego mountains, as his weekend get away, so towing was not a factor.
As others have commented, sure you could FT in a Airstream - but would not be my first choice:)!
Best to all,
