Why so many Airstreams on I-75?

We're traveling south on 75 in Georgia/Florida and have seen at least 10 AS headed north. Wonder if they're coming to or from a rally? We're headed home from a 6-day outing north of Atlanta.

On this past Wednesday, we pulled Lucy eastbound on I-10 from Santa Rosa Beach to Jacksonville. We saw seven Airstreams westbound on I-10 between home and I-75. They must be headed back from something in South Florida. We travel that route quite often and usually see zero Airstreams along the way

A lot of us are snowbirds heading back home. We have been in Florida since mid January and are heading north today. Also the Canadians need to get back north due to the number of days spent in the US.

Yes, we kind of figured the Snowbirds were heading home! We've never seen so many AS in one day on the road. Cool.

we saw many more AS's in south Florida parks this year than any previous year.

Remember its not the destination, but rather the journey.... its what's in the middle that matters the most!

Could have been me! If you saw a 1966 Overlander heading north, coming from Ft. Myers Beach for a week with my daughter. Stayed at the Red Coconut, Beach side.

We were headed north on 75 from jacksonville to al and saw the most on 95 over the last 3 days. A Bambi and a few newer models, an 80s and 70s model. We were trailer less.

We saw a lot, too, even pulled into a few stations where we encountered other 'streams. Lots of us are returning from escaping winter for a bit! The long, long, old Excella 32' pulled by a red Dodge Ram diesel is us! We're waving at all of you!

We also noticed all the ASs on Wednesday. We were driving down to Orlando on Wednesday to pick up our first AS, a 22 Sport. On Thursday we drove back to Atlanta. So if you saw one heading north on Thursday on I-75, it was us.

After 55 years of never, ever seeing a single Airstream on the road, to see a dozen or more dotting the traffic was weird, and thrilling, and seemed like a good omen that justified spending a spitload of money on a travel trailer.
