Anyone here own/owned one? Looking into buying a late model used in a couple years if the stars align but would like to know what I should consider when looking. Theyre pricey, however they do seem to hold their values better than any other brand travel trailer out there. Plus they just look like they’re built to last. I would be towing it with a heavy duty pick up to weekend races and yearly weeklong vacations to wherever. Thanks ahead of time!

We used one for many years. They are heavy, but very well built and the interior is second to none.

Looks awesome! Which model is that one? Looks like a flying cloud but I’m still a noob so I might be wrong. Any pics of the interior? Wish I could find a panamerica for sale but they seem to be a rare find

They are heavy but quite well made. They have their problems just like any travel trailer. I almost bought one in 2011 but got a pretty good deal on a 29' Earthbound at the time. They were trying to compete with Airstream. The company lasted 3 years and priced themselves out of the market among other things. Pretty cool though. All aluminum and composite. No wood at all. The interior just looks like wood.

Looks great! That’s all you need right there looks like you kept it in good condition. That’s exactly what I’m looking for nothing fancy but something that will Last.

I realize there some fancy stuff out there nowadays, but 25+ years ago that solid oak was the shit.

And there is an upside to the fact they are so heavy; in 2001 we had the RV set up along the river at the Lake Whitney Memorial Classic. A big weather system blew thru that night and wreaked havoc on everything and everyone in that area. There were tents, mangled EZ Ups, 18 wheeler/ semi-truck awnings destroyed, you name it, blown all over the place. We could barely feel the wind inside that heavy Airstream and we had no damage at all.

See! Stories like this are exactly why I’d fork out the extra coin for one

I don’t know much about them other then they are made about 30 minutes from where I live. Pretty cool if you ask me
