Pretty positive the little guy is not a bubble. The door swings the wrong direction, the end cap is off, and it's missing a curbside window. That being said it's still a very cool trailer.

From this angle (and reading the name plate above the front window) it is most definitely a very rare Airlight! That was my first hunch, but from the previous photo I couldn't quite rule out a Cruisette (I don't have the window positions memorized). I guess I should learn to trust my first hunch.

I think your right Joe Rondie said when she got close to it the name plate was worn bad but she could make out the light, I may try to see if they will part with it make a nice addition I think

Salvation Alley found Jesus

Tarsands...that old trailer...gee...the air conditioner looks like it might create some air-drag when they hit Highway 111. Nice photo. Thanks.

Passed an early '70s model today being towed by a burgundy Tundra on a short stretch of I-20 between I-26 and hwy 378. We both took the 378 exit, but the AS turned off again almost immediately. Looks to have been polished, but a little neglected since then. Hopefully it was on its way to being revived.

fellow AIRforums member pulled into the Spartanburg KOA in Gaffney SC last night in a long (33 foot? 34?) tri-axle classic towed by a silver crew cab truck. i think the truck is a chevy, but not sure.

square Airstream motorhome pulled in shortly after.

Who are you? I didn't get a chance to get my phone on before you went too far down the road. A mid-size newer AS and a large extended white/light colored truck. Driving north on San Marco A1A in Saint Augustine, FL today!! I was walking my dog southbound, and stopped in my tracks & waved

You must have found that lost bauxite mine

I think you just blew the lid off those guys secret claim. I'll bet Inyokern was just to the East.

That was amazing that you spotted and got that photo from so far away. I'm proud of you.

The wife's got a good eye for aluminum & a powerful telephoto lens. The road had a real wide shoulder so I stopped.
