Saw two this weekend on RT 87 just south of Payson, AZ, a new Airstream Saturday (about 25 ft) and a 70s Airstream (about 25-27 ft) today.

On the way to Tulsa this afternoon westbound on I-44, caught a glimpse of a tiny Airstream going eastbound. Not sure what it was, it only had one window on the streetside and I swear it wasn't over 12' long! Smaller than a Bambi! But definitely an Airstream!

airstream sightings

Spotted two Airstreams in a yard on my way home from Cairo, Illinois today. One was a 1969-1978 Tradewind and the other was an older -- probably 1960s 20-22 foot coach. Both appeared to be in use as storage units. They were located near New Grand Chain, IL on Route 37.

Saw this beauty behind Cameron's Pub in Half Moon Bay, CA. I think I've seen it before because the blue rims look familiar.

Hi All -

We've spied several over the past few days...

Friday;

- 30' Excella in Chatfield SP
- Excella w/ maroon trim headed south on I25 into Denver
- 60's Caravel south I25 south of Ft. Collins
- Newer 25' or 27' International headed East on I80 (west of Cheyenne)

Saturday;

- Bambi headed SE on I84 north of Brigham City
- What looked like a Limited (but wasn't fast enough to see) SE I84 south of Snowville
- only the roof-line of an AS headed west on 30 into Twin Falls

Sunday;

- 70's 28-30 footer at rest area dump station in Prosser(?)

All the best -

Returning to the lake (where Henri the 1974 31' Sovereign lives) we spotted two interesting AS items on a dealer's lot on Highway 7 in Carelton, Ontario, as we passed by. Now, it was about dusk, and the light was failing fast, but from what I could see, this 1985 34' Sovereign is a beaut:


Skin looked really good, and it has the inside layout I like the best: "Queen"-size bed in the rear, in the "walk-around" style, centre bath (and about 2.8 tons of storage), and up front it had the usual rear-facing gaucho, PLUS the cushy-looking dinette. Oh, and enough floor space to give dance-lessons between the gaucho and dinette.

All this for C$10,990, which seemed reasonable, however, the interior was only in shadows, so who knows what condition it was in.

They also had an AS moho that also looked in good shape, but I've no idea of the year or again, the condition, for C$23,990



Now, why I find this newsworthy enough to talk about here is that since I bought my unit back in April, I have not seen ONE interesting AS for sale in this region at all, and now two show up at a SOB dealer I pass by at least three or four times a month.

Ya never know, do you?

No pictures, but we saw what looked like a 25' Avion, in good condition, parked near the Eastern entrance to Cobourg, Ontario. Thought Ganaraska might know who it belongs to.

You missed mine by a few days. We drove up the bee line on Thursday and spent the weekend at Woods Canyon Lake. Jan the dogs and the trailer are still up on the rim, boondocking with jimmini. I will join then after work on Thursday.

MoHo

While standing in my front yard this afternoon I saw (over the neighbors roof line) the top of a Airstream MoHo. It was a long MoHo perhaps 30+ feet? It was headed West bound on I-280 near Milan, Il. exit. I-280 runs from Interstate I-80 in Western Illinois to I-80 in Iowa as a second thru route for travelers running around the Quad Cities area. Happy Trails, Ed

I saw Jimmini's update on their boondocking thread. Looked like a great spot for the weekend. Do any fishing?
