Had to look twice when you said they were different TTs. They both go to the same trayler tailor, by the look of them.

Gemma and Murray's Phoenix Road Trip

We saw four on a piece of property on Main Street (cross street, Pecan) in Cabazon, near Palm Springs. One 70's model on West Main Street (cross street, Price) in Mesa AND one nicely polished Caravel with a nearly original interior on East Main Street in Mesa on the Robert Crist RV lot.

Around noon I saw an Airstream Classic MOHO 345 towing a vehicle north on I-55 near Imperial, MO.

Thanks for posting the link. There were a couple of items that were correct, but factually wrong (Today's Airstream is not the same as the first trailers made in 1931 for example, they are the only RV company continually in business for over 80 years (WWII suspension of production included)) but it was an entertaining video.

Saw one a few miles from my house in the back yard of a house with no tresspassing signs EVERYWHERE! Just cruising by I would guess that it's 70's vintage maybe 25-30 feet long. I thought about knocking on the door but kind of afraid of getting shot.

You've been seen

Spending 2 1/2 hours a day on the interstate would make a person expect to see a few 'streams boppin down the ole highway but it is truely a rare day when one is spotted. I probably average 1 every 6 weeks. Today I caught a glimps of a round shiny object and had time to grab the iPhone and snap a photo of this beautiful tripple from New York rolling east on I-20 here in Mid Mississippi.

On Monday 3/29/10, I rolled out of my home here in TN around 5:45 am and headed south by way of I-26 east on my way to Cade City Florida travelers Rest, to buy our New/used 1997 AS 34WB Legend, once I got to I-95 and turned south I had a rare scene in which I counted 12 AS's of various sizes headed north out of Florida.
That same evening around 8:00 pm I was headed north on I-75, 301 north, I-10 east, I-295 north, I-95 north to exit 29 in GA where I spent the night. On Tuesday I went I-95 North, I-26 west, to TN, and not once did I see another AS.

Wow, Sarge, nice new wagon you got yourself! When do we get to see some pics!?

And I think what you saw (the 12 AS's) was perhaps a flock of Snow Birds on the return to their summer nests up north. I know the migration has begin for a lot of people I know...

This one rolled in to the campground we were staying at in Charlotte NC on Monday, 4/5. I don't think I'd ever before seen an Airstream that long. I recall thinking that our F-150 + 20' Safari would fit inside it.

Here is not a great siting in Nashville Flood Zone!

This one is taken in the Nashville KOA. Sad site for sure.

That's a shame. If only they could've gotten that trailer rolled onto an empty above ground pool liner, it might've been able to keep dry.
