Camped with 18 Airstreams this past weekend in NY near Albany. Had wonderful weather and a great time. Saw 6 or 7 Airstreams traveling in the opposite direction on our roundtrip.
Will be with approx. 10 trailers weekend after Labor Day in Plymouth, MA. Sandy Pond Campground.

Last week we left Wednesday for the annual Hotter-n-Hell 100 bike race, 65 miles away. We saw 2, a Bambi and a newer model. The HH 100 is a big event, over 14,000 participants and likely 6000 family members if not more so there are over 20,000 people that come to a city of 110,000. That's a lot of tourism for an event. We were advised (first year taking our AS) to get there no later than Thursday morning if we wanted power and water hookup, since there are usually about 800-1000 TT's, Motorhomes. There was only 1 other AS, an older maybe 60's model. Was ok with us, since we were the novelty. Several people came by. I backed in our neighbors 5th wheel behemoth. Nice couple from OKC. He sent her ahead with the trailer (she'd never driven with it) and couldn't get the backing up part... Part of the mountain bike trail went thru our campground since we were by the river (where there was shady camp sites) 3 people had low tires or flats and we were the only people who offered our bike tire pump. One group came in 3 sob's. One needed a water hose, another an extension cord for power. We had extra so we shared. I will say that the AS owners we meet are always nice and friendly. The others, not so much percentage wise...

But one of the greatest joys of being so very unique is the wonderful opportunity to share our beauties with all the curious onlookers! Took my 63 Overlander on her maiden voyage to Green Lake Campground in Green Lake, Wisconsin and was, of course, the only AS. Had SO many people stopping by to say Hi and take a peek. All positive comments and maybe just a "teeny" bit of envy! Love being "one-of-a-kind"!!!!

I find this thread so interesting. My wife and never considered ourselves "RV People" but we love Acadia National Park having been there more than 8-9 times in the last 20 years. 2 years ago we bought a Pleasure Way Sprinter RV and loved it. We're retiring next year and plan to go fulltime. We seriously thought of buying a small Airstream to pull behind the Sprinter but ended up buying a Flying Cloud 30. Great minds must think alike.

I think it is all about timing.......we went to the Tetons and Yellowstone this summer...we saw three in a campground in alabama near huntsville. our first AS on the road in Missouri. Once we hit the Tetons AS were Yellowstone too. Coming back home saw AS through SD and then no more. It is kind of like a game with us....who sees one first!
