Recently returned to Nashville, Tn in our 1979 AS 28' motorhome from Edgewood, Md. My mother in law reupholstered the interior over the winter - looks great! We chose the Harpers Ferry, Robert E. Lee (11) highway, I-81 to I-40 for our ride home. Did not see another AS motorhome on the trip.

We too just returned from a trip from South Carolina, to the AS factory at Jackson Center, Ohio, to get the door to our 345 AS Motor Home repaired(bent out of shape by being broken into), and except for the Classic MH we saw at the factory, we did not see another AS motor home on the entire trip either. It makes us wonder just how many are still traveling the highways and byways

Classic motorhome

Dr. Joe,

We were at the Airstream factory in early November for the tour. My mother's family farm is just 18 miles east of Jackson Center so we hook up there summers.
Our trip back home took us through the western Carolinas where we driveway camped at some of my wife's relatives. One was in Greenwood SC; the night before we drove down to Greenwood we stayed at the Anderson/Hartwell Lake KOA and drove through Anderson.
When we stopped for a couple of days in the San Antonio TX KOA we were just a row behind a 345. We found that they were WBCI members from south TX and they also owned a 1981 Excella Diesel just like ours.

Appreciate the replies and comments. We will continue to be very interested in classic AS Motor Homes. Would like to add that both of our visits to the Airstream Factory were very pleasant fully satisfying events.

I sure do wish my Bambi was invisible to hail and falling objects. The storms the midwest has had the past two weeks, I've been worried a fair amount with all the wind, and hail/tornado warnings.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Plenty around

We just had a rally at a park in Galveston with about 40 spaces. Besides our 14 Airstreams, there were two other trailers already there that had no WBCCI numbers. The odd thing was that neither of these owners even said hello to any of our group.

In the 500 mile round trip, I saw countless Airstream trailers parked along the way and one trailer and one classic motorhome going the other way.

There was even an older Airstream parked behind a house on the shore just a stone's throw from Moody Gardens that we saw from the excursion boat. Odd thing ... in the middle of a row of very expensive looking houses, there was one cheap looking frame house and that one had the Airstream. That guy had his priorities right.

Rally in Galveston? I'm only 15 mins from Galveston (20 pulling the A/S ). I could have stopped by and met some people, but I didn't know.... oh well.

In mid March I was driving sans trailer from Santa Barbara to San Simeon on a Tuesday AM and passed a caravan of LARGE A/S 3 axles. prob 8-10 vehicles all towed by older folk in PUs and proceeding sedately at about 60mpg
In my 'hood in Ft Lauderdale I have seen about 5-6 parked in yards(no big deal yet about parking here, must be on paved slab however)

Cool Classic Motor Homes

There are at least two 310 Turbo diesels in Minnesota and both being used regularly.

I just bought a 1974 Tradewind up in Tacoma, Washington
and went to pull it home last week.

Saw a couple of Airstreams on the way back on Interstate 5.
Once I got back in town I saw two more.

One was a guy pulling his TT by the Long Beach Airport,
he waved but I don't know if he saw me wave back.

The other is parked two spaces away from me in the storage yard.
A 1975 Tradewind. In much better condition than mine is right now.

That will soon change as I get to work on it.
