He must have levitated, right after he took off the bumper and lifted it up there. Quite a deal. I am glad to see the classic, refrred to as "custom" get prime time exposure.
You can bet many people said " I didn't know they made those"

I also loveed the motorhome/camper statementss only to be replied "it's an Airstream!".

Either the writer understands or someone slipped a few bucks for the promo.

Other than that I thought the story line was pretty lame. My wife pointed out the fact that we would have enough food for over a month the way she packs. We got flooded into a campground about 25 years ago in our pop up days. We were the only ones in the campground who didn't need food (and diapers) floated in.

A 280 it is! I was so busy looking at the spare in the rear shots I missed the lack of wrap around windows....Movie wasn't good enough to watch again to look again though....jem

My wife and I liked the shots of the airstream.
It is the only classic I have seen without an awning

It made me wish my motorhome was in the Maine woods even with the snow.

The 280 was the star!

If it weren't for the 280 I would have flipped to something else. But it was nice to see a classic motorhome in almost every scene.

All it did was make me want to go camping (with full tanks, full propane, and extra food)

There was a ladder, remember the beginning of the trip and he was on a ladder cleaning the windshield. Later stored the ladder under the coach just ahead of the street side rear tire.
His wrecking the coach to make a reflector was a bit far fetched.

Interesting comments on the show and I wonder if this was Airstreams little promo for the new Classic coming soon?

They didn't use a Landyacht, but a Classic and from what I'm reading here, the word "Airstream" was really played up.

Just a thought ~ John

Seeing the Airstream was cool, but the movie itself was lame and predictable. Several incongruities too.

Did anyone else notice that in the first road scene, Ted Danson was driving the left lane on a blind uphill corner? It didn't look like a divided highway to me. Even if it was, he should have been in the right lane.

Then when Mary Steenbergen's character said they couldn't stay married, "because things are different back there (at home)", my wife and I burst out laughing. The obvious response would be "Let's sell the house and hit the road!"

The writers/producers missed the chance for a new series.

Maybe like a new version of Route 66. Except this time its a dysfunctional couple in an Airstream travelling the country. Might be a hit! They could even tow a cool car to spice up the plot.

You could make a tv show, hopefully not a reality show, more along the line of Seinfeld on the road traveling in an Airstream. I watched the show only to see this classic ride. My next Airstream? I guess a can't look that far as I just purchased my first.
