We are still looking for that perfect Airstream, but we do have the PERFECT tow vehicle now, so we are headed in the right direction!
Our new-to-us 2002 Excursion is awesome. I wasn't sold on the Excursion until we saw this one, and it really has grown on me since our purchase even. We have gone on a couple 2+ hour road trips and have had no issues... it is fantastic!
One of these roadtrips was the beach at Port Aransas, near Corpus Christi. We had an awesome time! Here are some pictures of it. We headed over to Corpus to visit the Lady (USS) Lexington, a retired aircraft carrier... the kids loved it! And then the next day we went to the aquarium near the Lexington (can be done in one day, but with one that needed a nap and 100+ degree heat, we decided to split it up!), and the kids LOVED that. There were areas you could pet the stingrays, they all thought that was great. And they gave a military discount AND a partnership discount with our local zoo... so we only paid about 50%! That was great. Highly recommend escaping to the beach as often as possible. There at the Port Aransas beach, you can actually camp right on the beach... and I don't think it was too spendy. Just a thought if money is an issue.
We are still on the lookout for our perfect camper. Who knew it would take this long to find one close enough to look at and a good fit for our family! It will happen though!
