Didn't get a chance to catch up with the other one - it was recent and maybe a 25' or smaller.
We were camping at Salisbury too and we counted 4 Airstreams at the park that weekend. We stopped by your site but you were out and about.

So there was:
Bob and Claudia's 29' 1992 Excella 1000 - NY plate
Our 25' 1993 Excella Classic (the one that looks vintage) - NH plate
A newer 19' Bambi with polished tanks from VT. I think it was a CCD
Your 28' Safari SE

Nearly an Airstream rally!

My brother-in-law took me to the storage unit housing his boat (hey, it was a slow day).

Turns out there was a lot of aluminum there.

I was even able to talk the manager into letting me inside a few of the units.

Definitely not an AS but I have never seen a double decker unit - two stairways and two bedrooms on the top. Birch interior and a 4 foot bathtub/shower. Must have been a hum-dinger in its day!

Aage,

Try Tom Patterson's site: Tom's Trailer Section Frameset Page

It is also the home of the Vintage Airstream List.

Two AS's at Kentuck Knob

Yesterday when touring the Frank Lloyld Wright House, Kentuck Knob, we spotted two vintage Airstreams, at least of of which has 13 segements in the front. The two AS's were parked along with some vintage cars near a barn. I searched the web and found that Lord Palumbo, the owner of Kentuck Knob, does indeed have two vintage Airstreams in his collection, but they only refernece was that they were stored at the Farnsworth House in Ill. that Lord Palumbo also owns.

Does anyone know, has the Lord moved his Airstreams to Kentuck Knob (near Ohiopyle Pennsylvania) or are thest perhaps two new additions to his collection?

Had to stop for the light at 32nd and Indiana Avenue in Joplin, Mo today in time to see an Argosy go thru on 32nd st, looked like a 22' in bad need of a paint job! Being towed by a silver and maroon SUV, couldn't catch the plates. Cream on the top and tan on the bottom, probably a 74-76 by the taillights,

No worries, I'm sure we will meet in the future. The NEU has a spring rally at Salisbury every year (I know this for a fact because I'm the host). If you'd like to hook up with us you are more than welcome to attend, just PM me for the dates. BTW, you do not need to belong to the WBCCI to join us for this rally, we welcome all Airstreamers.
