Nice shot!

Funny though, 954 area code is in Broward County

Many growers do that in the area Aage, land is waaaay too expensive in Broward county. Can't make a living on an agrarian scale here. It is not uncommon for farmers to go buy a nice big parcel out in the boonies and transport plants when stocks at their retail centers deplete.

BTW, There were actually 2 airstream on the property, the other looked to be newer, at 60 mph, it's hard to snap a good photo.

Spotted an Airstream heading South on I-81 near Staunton, VA, yesterday (3/28/2011) around 12-Noon. Did not get a great look at the trailer, but it appeared to be a mid to late 80's 30'+, being pulled by a green Chevy full-size pick-up. #6996

Drove all the way down and back without one sighting on the highway but had an older Airstream Motor Coach pull into the campground and saw an older trailer with red numbers in another campground so there were some units lurking about. Overall a very low number count.

Oh where oh where in Austin? That little bubble strikes my fancy...maybe someone just needs to make them an offer, and Austin is only 50 miles away!

I just posted this in a different thread, but it's probably more relevant here.

There's a local bread company called Grace Baking, whose headquarters are right around the corner from my house. In their parking lot, there used to be at least a dozen vintage trailers — Airstream and others — that were always parked there. I had once emailed Grace Baking asking about them, and no one ever responded. They all looked gutted or in need of repair. Just last week I drove by, and they were all gone. The other thread reminded me that the might have been captured by Google, and indeed they were. If you zoom in once more, you can also get a good street view of them. Most of the Airstreams are in the back on the overhead view, but there seem to be more right up against the street in the street view.

This is (was) on Regatta at Marin Bay Parkway in Richmond, CA.

Does anyone have any idea who those might belong to?

The Airstream in the first two photos looks like a early '70's 27' Overlander, but the tiny trailer has me intrigued. I think it is either a 1951-52 Airstream Cruisette or else it is an Airlight (or was it Airlite?) from about 1955 or so. Or is could be an El Ray, since Airlight changed their name to El Rey shortly after the got started making trailers.

Does this count? It's some sort of foreign commercial:

I liked it, even though I couldn't get the sound. Funny!

Great pic. Probably not a Cruisette. It doesn't have 13 or 15 panel end caps, or the small rectangular side window on the curbside, though at a glance the profile looks close. HTH
