Here's another on the Phoenix area Craig's List. A '64 Globetrotter and looks to be in good shape. Oh if I only had more room.

Don't know the seller, never saw the trailer, just passing along info.

Avion in Page, AZ

I never got a reply from the Globe Trotter owner. Too bad, I really want a 60's AS.

I was visiting Horsehoe Bend on the Colorado river, just south of Page, AZ, and this Avion caught my attention. It's about 1/4 mile south of the Horsehoe Bend trail head in a quasi-junkyard. Looks to be in pretty good shape. Is anyone on the Forums interested in this alternative style aluminum? The only thing I'd comment on is the coiled up electrical cord in the middle of the street side, held on by swathes of duct tape.

I tried to get a phone number or some name, but there was nothing I found that gave me a clue. It's a fenced area with maybe 20 dead cars and trucks and a couple of tow trucks--I walked in from the desert; maybe if I'd gone to the front gate there would have been some contact info.

Found near Jackson Center.

I found this AS at IR75 and RT. 274 just outside of JC yesterday. I do have a few more pix if anyone is interested. It needed a lot of work inside and out, althought it appeared some end panels have been replaced or repaired recently. No price was listed --dave

also near JC

This one was for sale right next to the AS. Athough it's a Silver Streak, I thought it was very cool. The outside was in very good shape and the inside has been remodeled recenty and it looks like a modern coach inside. I have a few other pics if anyone is interested. Again, no asking price was listed. --dave

Same '50 Cruiser on Craigslist

Streamin 65 -- It is curious I found this same trailer while looking at the Minneapolis Craigslist. There's not a whole lot of additional info. A late model dually pickup sounds like a stiff asking price for the condition you describe! It looks like somebody started a polish job.

That is curious...The photos show it sitting exactly where it's at now! In my opinion, the trailer was in poor overall condition. The exterior had numerous dents and scratches, along with a couple of broken windows. Some windows had obviously been replaced with plexi, as vulkem was just smeared around the pane. There is a rusty old paint can above the door that is covering a vent. Also, I don't know if this is factory or not, but the dump valve was just jutting out the side of the trailer. I could see the original stove and fridge inside, and posted some pics. You are correct, though. A late model anything would be way out of line as a trade. There may only be 5 of these year/models remaining, but I'd bet the other 4 are much nicer! However, as with most AS, it could be resurrected with a pile of time and money. --dave

The pics on Craigslist seem to show the same location that is in your photos. For reasons of tech knowledge, etc, I see a lot of internet classifieds posted by somebody other than the actual owner.

Thumbs up East of Mississippi Homeless

This homeless report is a great idea whether they be vintage or not. It would be a great help to those of us who are actively "in search of " if the "Easterners" would jump onboard with finds along their travels. How cool it would be for me to go to Georgia in October with my new best friend on wheels!!!

I am getting a little weary of checking out for sale units, only to talk to another "road dealer" . Will stay in the hunt until I get around all of those distractions but help from the veteran A/Sers can only help.

Looking for that 1st rivet.

Airstream MH for sale

While driving up to Paso Robles Sat. I saw a shorter MH for sale in La Conchita Ca. Looked like the 80's models I've seen on this forum.

La Conchita is North of Ventura and South of Carpinteria on Hwy 101. Its parked just north of an old gas station on the east side of the hwy.
