Airstream on Ikea.com

Check out Ikea's site - I went there yesterday to look up an item, and found an Airstream instead. Clicking on the photo will take you to another screen where you can view the commercial. I haven't seen this ad on tv yet - has anyone?

We saw the ad a couple of days ago, very high quality production, anybody out there going to claim the honors on the Airstream.

We have seen it a number of times. Seems like an older (60's) Bambi. I spotted it right away. Always looking for airstreams!

Door-in-a-door ended in '61? Window and door arrangement looks close to a 1960 Flying Cloud. I'm not so sure about the marker lights...

I, too, have seen the add many times. The first time my 7 year old saw it he yelled, "Airstream!" I thought it was too short for a Flying Cloud when I saw the ad; I thought at first it was a Caravel but see by the photo that it is just distorted in the ad. Maybe it is a FC.

I have seen the commercial several times....but the first time I saw it I wasn't sure that I had seen an Airstream but I had Tivoed the program so I could go back and sure enough there was the Airstream......something like there is "no place like home." pj

We've seen it run quite a few times here in the Philly area. By the way CanoeStream, I think you can up the year for the door in the door to 1962. We have it on our Bambi.

Door in door?

Door in door went to at least 63, as a friend of ours has one on his 63 Trade Wind. Also, looks like a 58/59 Flying Cloud to me.... notice - it's a VINTAGE, not a new one!!

Love that door in a door look!!!!! Too bad the new Airstreams don't have that cool factor - just kidding everyone

Rob

I have to agree with you on the door in door looking great! Even though my husband and I have a 2006 now that is 100% useable, I sure miss our 1956....at least how pretty she was.

Why sure thing George! R.J. Dial's vintageairstream.com photo archives has two '62 Bambis mixed onto his one page -- one with and one without. I think that was his older format and I got fooled on the obvious door-without-a-door version. George, I'll bet he'd accept the offer for you to share some pics!

I had not seen it yet, what a nice ad. Wow that ad just calls me by name, Airstreams, horses, houses, and shopping at Ikea, what more could a girl want??
