Disney's "I ARE SMART" Airstream!

well, my mind was COMPLETELY BLOWN by seeing you could re-arrange the letters in 'airstream' to say "I ARE SMART"!!!

and you can only imagine the goosebumps of joy my wife and daughter felt as I screamed out in the middle of the Animal Kingdom "LOOK, IT'S AN AIRSTREAM!!!" (oh god, here he goes again...)

I don't know enough about models to i.d. this one, looks about 25-28 feet long and is an International of some kind, but it does have the wbcci numbers so I'm sure someone here can i.d. it. I can safely say that it is a very rare Internationalosauras:

great the way they've integrated it into the side of the restaurant. so I went inside and asked the folks who were eating there if they minded if I shot it since I suffered from a rare disease called Aluminitus and only had a few months to live. they shrugged a 'whatever'...

yes, i remember reading about that awhile back on the forums. at first i thought it was a joke but then i looked at it and it really did work.

it seems you had a nicer discovery on your own and was able to capture the moment with a great photo. thanks for posting the pix!

yes, I did find one other post on the Internationalosauras but the trailer looked so different (double awnings were out flying, everything looked a bit spiffier etc) that I thought an update might be in order.

that other 'i are smart' (recommended) thread does contain the PO information, nice to hear they pulled that puppy around alot before it landed in its final resting ground...

that post also has nice shots of the two smaller units that I didn't get to see..

can't wait to hit Fort Wildnerness with my Safari one day..

Rick, best time to go to Ft. Wilderness (and Disney) is the end of September.
Most kids are starting back to school, so the place is pretty desolate. We were there in 05, and were booted out because of hurricane Jean.

now I always admit that I am slow on the uptake... I followed that other thread linked by canoestream... how could that trailer have done a caravan is 1955 if it is a late 60's? Did the PO's numbers transfer? How does one find out the history of the numbers? I am now 7183, but the trailer still says 10183. Those numbers are owned by a couple in Nebraska now. did they have them perviously on my trailer?
