Maybe Arizona is different, but we regularly get people slowing as they pass our house (trailer is parked alongside) asking whether it's for sale. Also, we are frequently asked the same by people in an adjacent car when we are stopped at lights with our Bambi is in tow. I think most people don't know that Airstreams are still in production; and when they see one in good condition, they think they can get a nice looking trailer cheap, because it must be old. Most are surprised when we tell them that it's only a couple of years old, and they can buy a new one for $$$. (They usually look puzzled that they are relatively expensive.)

I know that it's a little unnerving, but our Airstream is still parked in the driveway (since 2005). It just shows how others view Airstreams -- they want one...

that's the truth....
my theory is that they were going to pull up and "check the trailer out".....maybe because they would like one, or they wanted to see how secure it is sitting there....i guarantee they weren't expecting me to come out my door at that moment.....whatever the case, it needs to be stored inside now since we're getting farther along so that's what we're doing today....this is where we're at today(new a/c is on now, but not in pic)....
