Vintage AS Family photo! Any others?

Hello all-

We stumbled upon this picture while cleaning out Mom and Dad's house. As you can see, it was taken in March 1978, which makes me, the guy without the pants on, two and a half years old.

The trailer was a 1966 Tradewind double. I loved that trailer and was devastated when Mom and Dad traded it for a 1971 31' Sovereign. The older trailer had low pile carpet perfect for playing with Matchboxes. The 1971 had semi-shag carpet- what little guy could keep a fleet of toy cars going on that?

Ironically, I still have the circus scene placards hanging on the upper cabinets in this picture.

Any other vintage Airstream family photos out there?

Greetings PA BAMBI II!

The photo above was taken in 1968 when I was 9 years old and what would become my Overlander was 4 years old. I am the one leading the pony. The Overlander was purchased new by friends of my family in 1964, and they traveled throughout North America until their retirement from Airstreaming in 1980. I became the third or fourth owner of the coach in 1995.
