Congrats on your purchase Jeff.
We had looked at Airstream too, it sounds like you got a smokin' deal.
There is no doubt about a Airstream's quality. What deterred us though in the Bambi's (which is what we would have gone for) other than the sticker price, was the weight of the units and the small bed size. We did not want to have to buy a V8 vehicle just for the sake of a trailer, and our current trailer has a 47" bed, and we really wanted something at least 6" wider.
We also wanted the smallest functional bath possible to save floor space, as though a requirement, we only use the bathroom in the trailer a small portion of the time, either opting for a tree (just me though), or a walk to the facilities at the campground.
But, this just goes to show that everyone has different wants, needs and desires is not the same. This is a good thing.
