knoledge from experience! They are bush or branch marks. That match the ones on my 72 from not clearing the drive to the barn wide enough.

Just got back from Roaring River State Park in Missouri. There were 2 Airstream motor homes in Paradise Valley, both from Texas and apparently the same family, the Adamses. Also one in storage. And while we were leaving the park to go fishing Friday, we saw an older, small Airstream pulling into Campground 1, and later found it parked near the back. Don't know what it was, under 18' to be sure, maybe a Caravelle? Don't think it was a Bambi. No visible license plate on it (we didn't go snooping around and no one was home) or on the red Jeep that pulled it. Didn't get to talk to the moho owners, either, it rained a lot and we didn't see them outside.

Mysterious! But kinda fun. Sounds cozy and romantic... huddled in a tiny trailer for a rainy weekend in the back corner of a campground.

The bride and I made a quick run to Reno this weekend to get away from the heat. We saw these. I know the 42 footer has been on the forum before but I don't think the others have.

IIRC, the 42' Airstream was a bunk house for one of the rail road companies. If not carried via rail car, how the heck would one go about towing that thing and where would you camp in it...and how would you back it into a camp site?

Remember, the so-called mobile homes were many times over 40 and 50 feet long, and they were towed by trucks, had wheels, and could be moved from trailer park to trailer park. I know, because we had one in the 1960's, a 10x45' "trailer". The truck always backed it in, and pulled it out to move it. Granted, we didn't move it often, but it was moved.

Just arrived home from Estes Park, CO Saw three A/S inside Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort (I think that was the name), two more in another park off County Road 7 on the way to Dunraven Inn and two at homes around Estes Park. Also saw an Airstream Moho at a house on the way back to Denver, think it was on County Road 66.

We saw one heading north to Superior, WI on Hwy 53 yesterday. No numbers...We were going to wink at it, but then hubby realized we weren't towing ours and it might've confused them...LOL

airstream sightings

When returning from the horse and carriage competition at Villa Louis in Prairie Du Chien, WI, spotted a early/mid-1960s Airstream in a yard along US 18 East of Prairie Du Chien near Mt. Ida, WI. The coach appeared to be a Globetrotter. This was on Saturday, September 6th.

Stopped to take photos of a large, abandoned farm along the I-80 turnpike in Ohio a few months ago. After getting excited over the windowless house, collapsed barn, silo and various storage sheds, I turned the corner and found this...

A Silver Dome trailer - 50's era fridge and peeling cabinetry still intact. Looks like it had an aluminum exterior, wood interior.
