Let's be honest, millennials have caught a lot of slack from people. Their generation is stereotyped as being lazy, unmotivated, and having a sense of entitlement. But, that's because the media attention has been on the wrong group of millennials. While there are some millennials living in their parents' basements and working at Starbucks with loads of student debt, there are also plenty that are paving their own path.
Camping has changed over the years. What started as a simple tent, sleeping bag, and fire has transformed into luxury vacations. Now instead of camping some people prefer to go “glamping”, which is a combination of glamour and camping. We are looking to add little pieces of luxury into our camping vacations anyway we can. The same is true with RV travel. Traveling with an RV may have started off with convenience and comfort, but it has transformed into so much more. There are even plenty of people choosing to be full-time RVers, even in the prime of their life with small children, instead of waiting for retirement. Whether you are looking to buy, or looking for fun, these are 5 luxury RVs you just have to see.
There are probably as many reasons to own an RV as there are people… and a story that goes with each one of them. We recently caught up with Carolyn Gorry, an acquaintance of ours who spent more than a year living and working in her Airstream.
Here is her story. Enjoy!
When did you buy your Airstream and why?
I bought my 20’ FC Airstream in January 2015.
You could call it a lark, mid-life crisis, or restlessness. I have a business that allows me to work anywhere I have an internet connection, a printer and a phone, so my situation was ideal for adventure.
Did you buy new or used?
I bought it new, as neither I (nor anyone I know) had ever RV’ed before and I wanted to make sure I had a quality product.
Two months ago, Airstream announced the smallest and newest travel trailer in their iconic line. This new trailer is called the Basecamp and you can see it on our Paso Robles and Buellton lots.
The Airstream Basecamp was designed for adventure and exploration in a modern world. The Basecamp is tough enough to go anywhere you want to go, light enough to be pulled by something you probably already drive and cleverly comfortable enough to be your cozy home after a day of being outdoors. Outside, the Basecamp looks like Airstream’s hip cousin. Inside, it is a micro modern living space, with room for human-powered adventure toys.
Who wants a Basecamp? Lots of people! The family of four that love tent camping and want their kids to experience a lot of adventures [...]
