Classic Motorhome Spotting!

Here is a fun thread...
If you spot a Classic Motorhome while zooming around, post it here!
Owners, if it was you, shout up!
I will start!

Today, 5/16/20011 at 4.30pm, I was Southbound on the 405, close to Long Beach Airport, California, I spotted a California registered 345, I think, but could have been a 325!
I was skimming the Carpool lane, but was so jazzed to see one on the road!

Looked so Majestic!
Who was it?

Man this is going to be a lonely thread. I've only seem two other classics and they were at rallys. Does it count if we use a mirror or have a friend take the pic?

I have met Mike Leary but I have never seen his Airstream. I guess we will have to have a special get together so we can see other classics. Will that count?

Cheers, Dan

Well since this is going to be a lonely thread I will post from past sightings. I saw 3 different ones all in one day in Quartzite 2 years ago. A 345 and an Excella and another 280 or 310. They were not together but saw them one at a time on the main drag.At different times. I almost wrecked my bicycle staring.

They are few and far between, that's for sure! I'd bet we've seen under 10 Classics over the years, active cruisers, that is. Seen a couple under blue tarps (one I tried to buy for parts, the son turned me down much to my wife's glee). Here's one that happened in Ajo: I woke up to this parked next door, they'd come in late.

I'm probably the 345 in Quartzsite...we park close to a 310 in the winter. The 4CU Thanksgiving rally has seen 2 345's and a 310. 3 years ago, I saw a Canadian conversion AS moho in Q town...4WD(well, I guess that would be 6WD), called a Slipstream. Only 8 of them were ever made...belt-driven 4WD, and the drive was the tag axle...got pictures of it and its owner...somewhere
Currently am in Ajo, but haven't seen any other mohos...have spotted an Excella and a couple of Overlanders...m

Since this is going to be a few and far between list, check out http://www.airforums.com/forums/f42/...tml#post541369, posts 38-40. I see it has now been three years since Susan (Alumatube) and I met Liz and Chris at the North Little Rock KOA. Susan and Brad (bkahler) have since moved from the area. Miss them and their motorhomes.

We just hosted the First Robotics event at the convention center in St. Louis. NASA provides the communications backbone for this event and I got a chance to interact with the folks from NASA in getting them interfaced into our communications network.

This unit is stored outside in Florida and is showing the wear and tear. The inside was pretty much gutted to hold the electronics necessary to monitor and support the network backbone at the event. It used to be a transport vehicle to get the astronauts until the shuttle came along and it was found to be too small. NASA keeps it running but doesn't do much else.

It may turn out to be a lonely thread, but when we spot one, be it on the road, or elsewhere, we now have a place to post the sightings!

Don't we have some rules about being tacky?
