Another thread introducing the Shooting star can be seen at New Airstream Resort to Open in May.

I knew I had seen it. I tried searching for it too but couldn't find it. It was brought up in the Hello from Michigan thread about a rally at a drive-in and I remembered at least formerly reading a post but it evaded my search. I have basically zero success with the forum search agent unless you remember who posted or the name of the thread. I miss 2Air. I guess this is another subject that has more than one thread now too. With a few weeks until opening I would be glad to hear more about it on anyone's thread.

I meant only that the camping sites are for Airstream owners only, no other types of campers or RVs allowed. I enjoy meeting other campers with different kinds of rigs other than the brand name I happen to now own, and enjoy camp sites where the welcome mat is out for all. I don't really see how exclusivity of Trailer Brand adds anything enriching to the camping/RVing experience, but then I've never been a club enthusiast. See you out in the boondocks...

I really enjoy talking to other Airstreamers and like being around them. However, I've never enjoyed being excluded or exclusive either. Sometimes I've wanted to stay at an RV park only to learn it was "Class A Only" ... it always kind of ticks me to be shunned when my trailer and TV are well kept and nicer than many of those class a types.

Where is your RV Park?

That place looks fun and I love that area. Seeing a movie at the drive in would be a blast from the past, the last movie I saw at the drive in was Star Wars they don't have any drive in theaters around here anymore.

But since I have "vintage kin", a 1963 Avalair, looks like we are out.

I'll bet it would be worth asking. I'd hope anyone who appreciates old Airstreams to the point to do what this guy has, would appreciate your rig as well. It's not like it's a wbcci owned park. I miss old drive ins also, then only one's I know of in the state are Ft. Collins, Delta, and Montrose. The one in Buena Vista didn't open last year for the first time and that was the closest one to us.

This place is going to have to be a destination! Looks like a lot of fun.

Our only other RV was a 77 Barth, purchased in 2001 with 40,000 original miles.

We had a great time in it, and it was wonderful for long weekends with a passle of grandkids.

We got a lot of condescending looks, some very close ones from law enforcement (those rolling meth labs, you know), but also lots of friendly inquiries and admiration for the condition of the interior.

Be yourself, do your thing, put on a big smile and enjoy your life. If some people or places snub you, avoid them.

Life is short. Do as much as you can for as long as you can.

Is there a master directory that lists such "Airstream" parks?

I'm with you. Not much for the 'us and them' mentality approach to life in general.

But then, we're very much a minority where we live these days. Changes one's perspective.

Ive dreamed of running a similar kind of resort. So, its intriguing to me. I live in SLC, Utah. Ive finally replaced my totaled 69 Safari with a 62 GT.. Ive been trying and hoping to have it ready for this weekend.. but, its not. But, the 66 Datsun Roadster seems to want it! So, Im going to head south on 89 tomorrow and on to hwy 12.. My favorite hwy in the state.. I will roll into the park in the afternoon.. With my travel companion, my Airedale Terrier. Not sure where Im going to stay tomorrow, (im prepared to tent it) but if anyone sees me rolling thru and wants to have a beer or meal.. speak up! Going solo, so it would be nice to make some new friends and hopefully check out some old Airstreams! Enjoy southern Utah!
Jason

Stopped to check out the Shooting Star last weekend as we were on our way to Capitol Reef. The owner was not there but one of the employees showed us around. He has bought up several older AS from 25' to 34' and fixed them up each with a movie/star theme. Built a drive-in style movie screen with old convertible cars to use as theater seating. Even a converted AS for a concession stand. There are RV spaces for Airstreams in a separate area.

He has taken on quite a project and don't know if all the finishing touches will be done by this weekend, but I plan to make it a base camp for some hiking in the area in the future.

Here's some pics of the rental trailers, interior shots are John Waynes "The Duke". Shot of some of the rentals with drive-in theater in the background and some of the convertibles to be used for theater seating.

Charlie,

I believe the combination drive-in and motel near Monte Vista, Colorado, is still open. You can watch movies from your room. Never been there except to drive past.
