Met a really nice guy from Nashville Sunday at a rest area on I-85 with a 22ft late model International behind a Toyota Tundra. Was on his way home from Gulf State Park, AL.

We saw about a billion AS's this weekend on our trip back from Road Atlanta to Kentucky, starting with a 345 moho, a 20' Argosy moho, a small older trailer, and a newer Bambi actually at the track! Record! Especially for mohos! We talked with the moho owners and did our best to turn them on to the Forums.

On the way home we saw several, from a nice newer trailer pulled by a black van with an expanded roof (at a Starbucks just off I-75 in Tennessee), to a nice triple-axle from Alaska pulled by a silver Ford pickup headed north on I-75 about 10 miles inside the south Kentucky border (we let him in as we were passing the scene of a rollover wreck of a custom van towing a Puma camper -- it looked like someone may have gone across the highway and forced him off the road or hit him and knocked him off the road). We also saw several headed south in the rain (maybe going home from the Rend Lake rally?).

A great weekend for Airstreams!

Sunday going home seen an A/S going to (North I-75) Bartlesville, OK hard to check the number I think it was 6215? Also seen on on I-40 turnpike between OKC and Tulsa heading East no numbers.

Nice late model 34-footer behind a Dodge dually west bound on I-20 in Columbia today. Didn't see any numbers on it.

We spotted this Safari, east bound on the Ohio Turnpike near the Lordstown exit on Monday. It is in nice shape and probably on new axles. We're thinking '63 (7 panel end crown, door in door). Dealer Plate.

We saw 5 vintage on the road one at a time between Colorado Springs Dillon and Wilkerson Pass on our outing this week end. Made a loop and stayed three nights on Badger Flats rain or damp the entire time but the worst day of camping is better than the best day at work any time. We had a restful time. Edit to add that is the most A/S we have seen on the road on any trip.

Angeles Crest Highway

We saw a newer Airstream heading west on the newly reopened Angeles Crest Highway closer to the west side--perhaps near the Mt. Wilson turn off at about 2:30 pm today. We were traveling eastbound towards Wrightwood and the Airstream was heading in the opposite directiion.....this road has been closed for several years due to a rock slide during a winter storm......and just reopened this week......it was a beautiful ride.....hard to believe there is such beautiful wilderness so close to Los Angeles..we drove from sea level to over 7900 feet in less than 200 miles round trip--even saw quite a few patches of snow on the north facing slopes and had a great view the north side of Mt. San Antonio which is over 11,000 ft. pj

My sister had to call me and tell me she just saw "the biggest freaking Airstream ever" today on Hwy. 416 close to Ottawa. She's not an A/S owner but appreciates that I enjoy sightings, even 2nd-hand.

She said it was a "honking" trailer with 3 wheels on each side, and pulled by what looked like a GMC Safari. She may be very descriptive with her A/S adjectives, but I had to express a bit of disbelief at what was most likely a 34' trailer being pulled by a sturdy minivan? She stood behind her observations - it looked like a Safari or an Astro.

Odd.

Not really odd for Canada, Mac. Have a look at this. Two different 34-footers being towed by V6 engined- vehicles, and a 24' Argosy being towed by a Jetta!

Airstream Sitings

Spotted a fairly new airstream (2000+) headed south on the I-215 between San Bernardino and Riverside at about 1150.

Spotted one yesterday for sale on the side of the road Hwy 60 "Grand Ave" in Sun City, AZ. When I passed by again the owner was giving a tour.
