On the way to work this morning I was in front of and later passed in traffic by a 19' CCD being delivered by Sagon going through Atlanta. Somebody's getting a new Airstream!

Hi Gen Disarray, I didn't have my AS with me this trip, lets just say I was "pre-running" the highway to see how difficult it would be to tow a 31 footer down there. After that drive, I decided that there are definately parts of the road where towing my trailer could be super scary! Those tight curves and steep hills, not to mention the washboard never ending dirt roads! I really have admiration for those who do it!

I do think that my AS will make the trip, one-way, and make a nice place to stay for my surf trips. Now, I just have to convince my friends to tow it!

Nice effect on the close-up! You might want to enter that into the Airstream pic of the month contest thingy.

Last week, camping at Grayland Beach State Park (near Westport, WA), I saw a glimmer of aluminum through the trees of the next camping loop. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be a '67 Safari. What are the odds of having two '67 Safaris in the same campground? We met the owners - very nice people from my hometown. Made my day.

Another Airstream near Ottawa

Was camping last weekend in Fitzroy Provincial Park near Ottawa (Ontario) and while we were maneuvering through the park to get to our site, we noticed another Airstream through the trees.

Being busy setting up and dealing with the general shenanigans of 2 young boys, we didn't get around to taking a stroll and chatting that afternoon.

The next morning I was dealing with more shenanigans when I heard the rumblings of a truck/trailer combo going by our site - and looked around to see them leaving. Oh well.

Was a Safari, later model, maybe 22'?

But this makes me curious - what do most people do when noticing another Airstream in a campground? Do you mosey on over and introduce yourselves - and vice versa? I don't want to appear nosey or anything, just wanting to be friendly...

Either the Safari people didn't really see us as they drove by, or they were way more reserved/private than ourselves.

Cheers!

Michelle

I tend to be a little forward. I will introduce myself if the other 'Streamers are outside their coach, but I won't go up to the door and knock.

I think that is just right. I might also go up if the door is wide open and it is obvious that the inhabitants are just "hangin' out". Strangely, I seem to give a vocal knock, knock as I am walking into the camp area. I try to have a little goodie in hand if it is evening. (Insert wine here)

Saturday, 11:15 am, going east on I-20 near Covington - a 90's maybe Safari 25/28 being pulled by a greenish/greyish Excursion, no Wally numbers or ghosts of them. Very nice looking trailer.

Hi, Michelle,

One never knows. I try to catch 'em outside, and I never try to "help" with hitching or unhitching. (And I don't WANT help, either.)

If you see them outside, holler over something like, "Hey, nice-looking trailer! What year is it?"

If you get a friendly response, THEN mosey over.

Also bear in mind that some Airstreamers are retired old coots and are allergic to any children except their own grandkids (and even that in very small doses).

Those are probably rare, but there are a lot of interesting/unusual characters out there in Airstreamland.

Lamar

towing my airstream down 75 south through Kentucky and Tennessee, we passed an airstream 5th wheel. i've never seen one of those before. are they even aluminum? strange looking, mildly more attractive than a plain white 5th wheel, i guess... but hardly a "Streamlined trailer".

I for sure wouldn't dream of coming over and knocking on someone's door, but if they were relaxing by the campfire I may wave and say hi and compliment the trailer/motorhome from the path. 'Specially if it's an Airstream of course!

And I have to say that if anyone from the forums sees me at my campsite - come on over and say hi by all means.

We always have a selection of wines and beer (and some rather excellent Canadian coolers which have *real* vodka or rum in 'em, rather than the rather dubious malt liquor that the U.S. coolers have, but that's another topic) and various snackies. I enjoy meeting new people and general chitty chat about Airstreams and whatnot.

Cheers!

Michelle
