Airhog,
Can you find me one closer to my home???

Mohrsville, PA to Hattiesburg, MS (1,083 miles) is a little further than I am willing to travel.

Suddenly I'm surrounded by Airstreams!

I used to be the only Airstream at Rye Cyn Storage and now there are five others.

Seems every weekend I see yeat another Airstream under tow here in Valencia. In the last two weeks there were three 25 footers and a Bambi.

I'm loving it!

That one has been there a while. Did you spot the late '50's model on the side of hwy 98 just after you leave Moffit Ala?

Spotted a shinny 66 Safari getting on the Edmonds-Kingston ferry. It was on the Edmonds side going to Kingston being pulled by a black suv.

Classic Moho with North Carolina plates spotted on I-40 East mile marker 192 8/22/08 headed toward Nashville, TN. It had red trim where blue or wood decal would normally be and just over the clearance lights in the back were nicely painted palm trees with sand around them. It looked like it was in excellent shape.

Nice older Excella in a back yard in Carthage, MO, just before the Oak Street bridge. I understand the gentleman that lives there restores Airstreams.

Also Colaw's in Missouri has one out front for sale, I believe it was an Overlander. Got a huge dent in the front endcap that looks repairable and I know the floor needs replaced but it looks restorable. Sorry I didn't get the price but I got too excited over finding an original set of Argosy hubcaps on a salvage unit that I forgot to ask.

My Brother-in-law says he's seen more UFOs than Airstreams in his neck of the woods. He's doing much better now!

Did it look like this?



I dunno, not many 'round these here parts. Me and the missus just got back from tent camping for 10 days in a Provincial Park not too far from Ottawa, Ontario. We got out on the road most days, and saw a zillion 5th Wheels, multitudes of SOBs (many seemingly not so "S"), and ::drum roll::

ONE Airstream.

He was coming at me from the opposite direction, so no soap for a picture.

Could be our dollar is still too high to make it interesting for Americans to come up?

Looks like the local folks are still spending lots of money on new trailers, just not on AS rigs.

I thought "your axles are shot" was supposed to be the initial response to any vintage Airstream's first photo posting on these forums! Some kind of greeting or something.

It is secret code for "Wow, did you ever get a deal on that puppy. Glad to have you on board".

After hearing this the new owner is supposed to say "yeah, we stole it from the old guy who was sadly on his last legs and once we scrape those three red letters off the front we'll polish the old girl up"

To which the knowledgeable AirForums member is supposed to say "Here, let me help"

Life is fun, isn't it?
