T1N or newer? Dome on rear left or right? Solid silver or two-toned? I know one that looks like that but I thought they were heading east, not west.

I wasn't going to expend a dedicated thread reply on this non-Interstate, but it sure caught my eye, so here is a beauty shot. This just said "electric" on the back - it didn't say "hybrid" (dealer tags still on it, too). Love the contrasting gray stripe on the bottom. A simple people-mover, as near as I could tell. College Station TX, Thanksgiving Day, around 4 p.m., driving like a bat out of hell.

Spotted 11/28/'14: Beautiful black AS Interstate 3500 (at quick glance) on US 101 southbound near Bruceport (WA) pulling out from historical marker. We were headed northbound, not in our silver AS Interstate, heading home to avoid the torrential rains forecasted.

Traveling from Fredericksburg, TX Monday morning December 1st, we spotted our first AS Interstate on this trip. We did not see a number on that vehicle. We attached our WBCCI number (5109) on silver magnetic sign boards. When traveling, we will place them on the front and back of our Interstate so it will be easier to recognize when passing down the highway.

Hey andybree, did you get a chance to eat a hamburger at The Alamo Cafe?

Self proclaimed best in Texas and I haven't found better. They are 10 miles outside of Frericksburg and right next to Tunnel State Park which has a nightly flight of bats out of the abandoned railroad tunnel.

I have magnetic numbers for mine, too. I used to leave them on all the time, but once when I took them off to wash the van, I realized that there was some discoloration of the paint underneath.

Then I realized later it was the paint that wasn't underneath that was discolored. For reasons known only to Mercedes Benz, the white Sprinter vans don't get a clear-coat like the black and silver ones do, and there was some paint fading due to UV exposure, except where it was covered by the magnetic signs. So I took the signs off, and allowed the paint where the signs were to fade to match the rest of the van. Fortunately, faded white is just a whiter white, not really a color change like when some other colors fade.

I still carry the signs inside, and stick them to the outside when I attend a WBCCI function.

Even without the number signs, if you see me on the road you'll recognize me. How many white Airstream Interstates will you see pulling a white Honda Fit?

Interstate spotted in Oregon

We were driving back from camping at Humbug Mountain, great place, and spotted a Silver one. It was Jan 2, 2015, 10:30am. He was driving Northbound on highway 101 near Gold Beach, Oregon. We all waved.

But the shape was all wrong and it wasn't until I got home and downloaded my photos that I could confirm what it really was (I often drive with a camera in my lap - shoot first, ask questions later). I don't know anything about Avenues, other than they were produced through at least 2013, according to the internet.

State Highway 96 near IH-45 in League City Texas, January 27 2015. I finally spot an Airstream Class B after months of looking all over southeast Texas, and the one I find turns out to be just two hundred yards from my own house.

Interstate in Nashua NH

This afternoon, we saw a 2005-2007 Parkway in the Market Basket Parking lot on Highway 101. It was from CT. We stalked it for a while but the owners didn't appear!
