You're going to have to scan or take a photo of the picture that you are talking about and post it. I checked the Classic photos on the Airstream Website, and I don't see the photo that you are referring to.

You're going to have to climb in your time machine and go back to the 50's to find that beach camping location.

I wouldnt hold my breath on that being from the east coast. Good luck on your quest though, kind of a neat idea.

If it's east coast - it's S. Florida with those palm trees. Good Luck!

it's hard to tell, but i'd venture a guess somewhere in southern california as they used to me made here in los angeles, so thinking that a local beach would be an easy photo shoot.

not sure though. i'd really like to know about the plant/tree in the left of the frame. identification of that may help on whether it's east or west coast.

If that is all you want then I can recommend Corpus Christi or Galveston Beach, Texas. Drive on and very nice beaches.

Looks like a phoenix reclinata. Clumping phoenix palm. Home to tropical places, for the most part, at least back when that picture was taken. This means it would have to be somewhere in a tropical neighborhood, could be the Gulf coast, or South Florida. I doubt that it is a west coast location.

The ad picture looks like South Florida east coast probably 1957 as the Olds TV looks new and it's a '57. The palms appear to be coconuts with bent trunks. These were very common in the Miami area at that time. They were not around in many other places.

There is one place that I know of where you can actually camp with your Airstream directly on the ocean with your wheels on the sand. It is called Camping on the Gulf. It is located just east of Destin, Florida, in the Florida Panhandle between Panama City and Pensacola.

You can find a neat picture of the layout by going to Camping on the Gulf .... Holiday Travel Park ... Destin, Florida
