Spotted a "73 Sovereign at Colaw's, Carthage, Mo for sale. Kinda rough, asking $3900 for it. Good project for somebody.

Vintage Airstream Motorhome in Illinois

Passed a sharp looking vintage Airstream Motorhome on Ft. Jesse Rd in Bloomington, IL earlier this morning. It had just passed OSF clinic and was heading towards Veterans Parkway. Happened too quickly to get more details.

One sitting, One for sale

We spotted the first one, an International parked by an old school in downtown Libby, Mt. Story goes that a gentleman that had purchased the school and was in the process of rebuilding it, was killed in a motorcycle accident. Appears to be in pretty good shape overall. May be for sale, but do not have any info on it.

Second one is for sale and was sitting by a fruit stand in Bigfork, Mt. Very rough shape. Interior gutted and rear window not only missing but it looks like somebody tried to saw the back in half! Asking $1000.00. Good luck!

I hope I got the last page in this...We spotted this 'mystery' RV but did not capture any markings on it...But it has that retro look so we thought we would share it.

A/S mounted to an old Dodge

We saw this older 17' (?) A/S mounted to the rear of an old Dodge. It was parked next to us in Cathedral City, CA on Feb 14, 09. Fellow had to use a small step ladder to get in and out.

I am not certain whether it is a "Dodge Frank Motorhome" or the later Travco Motorhome. The "Dodge Frank Motorhome" or as it was more commonly known, the Dodge Motorhome began life in 1961 and ended about 1968 when Travco took over production. Based on the shape and window configurations, my suspicion is that it is either a very late Dodge or very early Travco Motorhome.

We just returned from a week at Grayton Beach State Park. Didn't see any on the trip down, but there was a 34' Excella with white Dodge tow vehicle (from Texas) and a recent model 19' Bambi with an Escalade SUV for the tow vehicle (from Missouri).

Every time I passed either of their sites while walking the dog found that no one was there. I did see the owner of the Bambi out one day and I waved. It was a lady traveling by herself with her small dog. I saw the family in the Excella packing up about 5:30 AM on Saturday but figured they were too busy to stop and talk.

My husband just received his September/October issue of Truck Trend magazine and big and bold on page 47 is a Dodge Ram pulling an Airstream!
Looks to be a 25 or 27 FB model.

Saw what looked to be a 90's model 22? footer camped at Laguna Seca Raceway campground near Montery, CA last Thurday night (7/23). They had a Hensley hitch.

Also saw a 2000's 25' Safari camped at New Brighton State Beach near Santa Cruz, CA Friday and Saturday nights (7/24-25).

I saw 3 yesterday (7/29)travelling on N/B Hwy 101 in the Pismo Beach area. They were not travelling together, but were each 2-5 minutes apart.
One was an 80's maybe 25' or so
One was older, probably a 60's and 22 or 23' long
The first one I passed was newer but I was busy driving the fire engine and couldn't get much of a look.
Maybe all together but not?
