On Sunday (7/12) we spotted an Airstream heading East on US 30 in East Liverpool, Ohio. Just at the southern end of Ohio 11. We were headed out for a picnic in the TR-6 with the top down, so closing speed was relatively fast. I only had time to wave over the windscreen but not time to see a response. We're thinking it was a 70's or early 80's Tradewind being pulled by a pickup (light blue - I think).

Saw a nicely polished 70's Airstream being towed by a red Dodge (I think) pulled over on the side of Illinois 294, just west of the Indiana/Illinois boarder, this morning. I think they were taking pictures of the huge limestone quarry that the highway straddles there. I was traveling in the opposite direction, so didn't get any numbers (I didn't see any). Was about 24 foot or so. Nice!

A Land Yacht being pulled by a red pickup exited I-44 at Exit 8, coming from the east, onto Range Line in Joplin, yesterday as we were coming home from Roaring River pulling our Argosy. Missouri plates, didn't get any other info.

Yesterday I spotted a short twin axle 'stream towed by a dark colored Ford truck headed west on I-20, almost to Vicksburg. I think I spotted an oval Forums sticker in the rear window of the trailer!

Busy day for Airstreams on the road today. I spotted one after another today while driving west bound on I-90 from Ephrata, WA to Seattle. First a motorhome...thought of ScrapIrony right off but I know they arn't here in Washington...then I spotted a newer model at Thorp's Fruit Stand...the a little further down the road I saw a vintage getting tanks dumped at the rest area off I-90, caught a just the top of another going the eastbound direction and finally I saw half an Airstream...yup half... sitting in someone's yard was one poor Airstream that was missing her front half entirely

found one for sale

Spotted a mid seventies Tradewind for sale while motorcycling in West Va this weekend. The owner is asking $2500. That sounds a bit steep to me but I might have to look closer anyway

I spotted an Argosy on the backroads of our home...Looks to be in good shape skin wise. I will go back later and ask o see it and take more pictures..It looked to be a 25' with a 10" or so panel on the sides. It had an awning on the curb side and the front 2 windows on the street side.

We saw one last evening around 6pm heading south on the 101 near Warner Rd in Chandler while we were en-route to the storage facility. It looked like a late 60's Safari, I believe it was a single axle. Was being towed by a white pickup looked to be a pretty nice trailer, it looked like it may have been missing the rear trunk door.

I saw a twin axle airstream, tv had Arkansas plates, parked at 11:45 for lunch at the A&W Root Beer/Long John Silver's, here in Poplar Bluff. We're getting ready to head for Texas in our 32' Excella Friday afternoon. Going thru Tulsa, OK to pick up one granddaughter, Dallas for another granddaughter, then down to Galveston for the week.

Central CA Airstreaming

On June 17, we were towing South 101 down the Gaviota Pass and were passed by a beautiful little restored Bambi(?) towed by a white Toyota Tacoma. They waved and we honked. Made that grade a lot more fun.
Also saw two Airstreams (one a Safari like ours) in the Lopez Lake campgrounds, on June 16, San Luis Obispo County.
And, my little girl spotted one parked in a neighborhood adjacent to Dinosaur Caves Park, just north of Pismo.
There is also an Airstream motorhome visable from the 101 in La Conchita.
