Conestoga tried this horse thing and had some success for a while, so there is a history of it having been done. If I remember correctly, their awning extended completely over the RV.

there might be an untapped market for black Airstreams in our area. And, there's already plenty of horses hereabouts.

Well, it kinda resembles a chocolate covered peanut, and let's not forget that Hershey is just up the road.

However, I don't know about painting it brown and pulled by horses -- we do have those brown things on the road around here called "road apples".

If the trailer is painted brown, you won't be able to see the deposits of the, "road apples"...

Now that fuel is approaching, and in many cases has passed, $4 a gallon, do we have any new ideas for tow vehicles?

We're lucky

We fortunate, we just bought a 19' 1963 Globetrotter in February and it came with picture instructions on the side of it.
Maybe someone else out there has got the same model of Airstream.
On the side of our unit is a small plaque with the image of suggested way's to tow your trailer.
There is man on a bicycle with the camper in tow.
I have'nt figured how to hook up yet but I am thinking my yard mower to test pulling around in the yard.

When in the Airstream factory in April we did see a trailer fitted with a handbrake on the tongue and push rails.(it was going to Europe) so I don't think its beyond the realm of possibilies that a seat could also be mounted on the tongue and a dolly to carry the tongue. Yep its possible. A nice Clydesdale team would do the job I think.

You would need a slimp wheel on the tounge, and some big rubber baby buggy bumpers bumpers on the tail.
