I've heard...

"60% of all Airstreams made ever made are still on the road today"

But I don't think anybody really knows 60% of what?

It seems like it was just last year that we hit 10,000. As a matter of fact, IIR it was 12/04/05.

Airstream numbers

Rog0525,

Thanks for the link, some good data. After reading most of the older threads, it looks like a reasonable estimate of total Airstream production is around 125,000 units. If we use the factories estimate of 60% still on the road we get a number around 75,000. (I'll bet that still on the road includes the Airstreams sitting in a garage or driveway) So if my basic math skills are correct, the forum's membership represents 20% of the current Airstream owners, with the understanding that this percentage assumes one Airstream per owner.

I am impressed, 20%, that is a very strong representation of owners. At the rate things are going, maybe THIS FORUM will be the "CLUB".

John

It is not - but there are many who are working both in front and behind the scenes to do that. It is interesting to note that there are plenty of people who are interested in Airstreaming as evidenced by these forums but that they are not interested in clubbing it WBCCI style.

15K names on the “Member List.” An impressive growth curve!
How many are active participants and how many are viewers that only read the postings. Looking at the Membership listing I see a lot of members who have never submitted a posting. It would be neat to see a bar chart illustrating the numbers for each Rivet Level vs the total population.

I would really be interested in seeing this too. What is nice about this forum as compared to others I participate in that there are active participants. I will post a question on another forum and wait sometimes several weeks before it is answered or gets a response.
