Daily Reckoning: Dreaming of being lakeside in the Rockies

From the bloggers at Daily Reckoning.

There is nothing quite as luxurious when it comes to getting lost in national forests and America’s remarkable parks as a tiny, easy-to-pull travel trailer. That’s what has made Airstream trailers, for example, so desirable. Billed as land yachts rather than travel trailers, they combine classic beauty, aluminum shells, good fit and finish and versatility.

The Teardrop is retro yet modern, sleek yet roomy, light yet stable, and made safer with electric brakes.

The only problems are they’re really expensive and they’re pretty heavy, requiring something bigger than the family Subaru to pull them. The smallest Airstream, the 16-foot-long Sport, starts at $42,000, has a hitch load of 350 pounds and weighs in at about 3,000 pounds. Needing a truck or heavy duty SUV to pull such a mini-trailer defeats the whole idea of treading somewhat lightly into nature.
