We just got back from a trip to Door County Wisconsin. Saw 3 southbound trailers on I-55 as we were heading north towards Bloomington Il. No others after that point.

Once up in the campground we ended up seeing two other units just down from our site. The first was a new '05 International owned by a couple from Minneapolis. Interesting enough they pulled out one of my posts on what to wash your Airstream with. Also met another couple next to them from Illinois with a vintage unit that is in the process of restoration. A couple of pictures of their trailer. Last picture is Patty and our site.

Last April and May we did a five week trip from So Calif. to Missouri then to Yellowstone and back to So Calif. Saw 60 Airstreams parked and or traveling. We count everyone seen. We are currentky in Fairbanks AK on a three month trip from So Calif to AK and back. So far we have seen 63.

We had an electrical problem with our 2004 Safari in Tok AK. Jim Parret at Aristream was sxtremely helpful by authorizing a repair at a non Airstream shop.

Today andtonight we saw Mt. Denali and the Northern Lights. This is a rare bit of luck as we are told both are difficult to see anytime let alone in one day.

Wow, some of you are travelling in areas where there are quite a few units. We were excited as heck this weekend on a road trip where we saw two being pulled (one seventies and the other looked brand new), and two in yards and one of those would at very best be a parts trailer. It had been painted white on the roof and that was peeling and did not look like it was being used. The other looked like it was being used from time to time but not recently. No one home so we will have to check back.

Love to watch them coming down the road at us, and following one is a real treat. Since none of the folks we tow with have an AS it's few and far between that we get to see one ahead of us and tag along for a while.

we've been on the road for 86 days and have seen 5 other airstreams in campgrounds we've parked in.

we drove by a bunch in people's driveways between santa fe, NM and and taos.

...and pulled over for this great old bambi:

We're on the tail end of a 2,400 mile trip and in 10 days on the road we've encountered a total of 13 Airstreams both rolling and in our various camping locations! There are three of us in the same park this evening! Our route has taken us East on I-30, I-40 and I-81. In Texas on I-30, we saw a pretty little Argosy that was for sale. If anyone is interested in the exact location I can provide that for you by mile marker on request. I'd post it now but need to download all kinds of notes from my digital recorder first. Hope to add more 'Streamer sightings to the count on the final day of our journey.

We passed an Airstream with a license plate that rang a bell. I'm almost positive it was Suzzeee from this forum. I put a picture up on her thread about the trip that she took that would put her on southbound I-5 in northern California at the same time we were there. For a link to the post with a picture, go here

Yep...that was us..heading back from Alumafandango!! We stopped at Sacramento RV Park on the way up and there was one other Airstream there -- an older Excella and on our way home we saw a few on the road and there was one at the Glenyan RV Park in Ashland that came in after we did and we saw them on our way out.... Also saw one from I-5 that was parked on the Old Hwy 99 between Hornbrook and Yreka (CA)....

Monday, aug 19, we were into mile 4700 on our coast to coast trip from New Jersey driving up the coast of Oregon heading to Seattle. 3 Airstreams pulled out ahead of us that were traveling together. We met up at a traffic light and did the normal wave , told them we were joining their caravan for a while!!! Stayed with them for only a short time as they headed for the the west coast of Washington and we for Seattle!! I have not seen that many on our trip, but every one of them know that wave!! They must have all been at Allumafandango, which was just out of our reach, time wise.. Travel on fellow Airstreamers!!

Aside from our neighbors camped in an Airstream, we found this one abandoned in the weeds on the property. Sad.
