Saw a couple of Airforums members on the road today. Rick Davis was headed South on 79 in Md and I was going North. Frank (62 Overlander) blew by me East bound on 68 a little later.

Saw this Ned's Travel Burger Spartan Trailer this past Saturday at the Utica Antique Show in Utica, MI. Not quite an Airstream, but nice none the less.

This was at the Tin Can Tourist event in Milford MI in May. Quite the rig! And the food wasn't too bad either ! ! !

Just got back on Sunday from 2500 miles through Northern California and Oregon.
Spotted many more Airstreams than I expected. Key ones that stick out as follows:
1. A mid-60's, ~21 footer going southbound on 5 around Red Bluff area
2. DrMassives nice early 90's short tandem, rare and beautiful. Spotted him in Lassen in the same campground but our schedules never aligned and then actually got to say hi in Crater Lake, once again at the same campground. We even did a boat cruise in the lake together coincidentally!!!
3. Late model, 25 or 27 feet, going northbound on 89 just north of 299. We were leaving McArthur Burney Falls SP. I think you were frantically waving as I shoved my hand out the window for a quick "hang loose".
4. Woke up to find a motor home from Nevada in the spot next to ours at the Klamath Falls KOA. We left before we saw them get up, but I grabbed a pic because I heard they are rare?
5. Approximately 3 or 4 between Klamath Falls and Crescent City along 199 and 101. All 90's models, except for one that looked brand new.
6. Hung out with Marzboy at the Patricks Point SP briefly, but he didn't have his trailer so not sure if I can count it.

On the 4th of July we went driving around. At Hitchcock Campground near Honey Creek in SW Iowa there was a Safari about 23' - 25'. Also just arriving was a Bambi behind a Toyota truck with FL plates. We should have stopped but didn't want to interrupt their setup. And it was HOT!!!! Sunday we were sitting at the dinner table celebrating our daughters birthday and an AS trailer went by on the way to Wilson Island State Park - but its still closed for MO. River flood repairs - or Desoto Natl. Wildlife Refuge. It never came back past here (Smart move as the blacktop is ground up and fresh DUSTY rock overlaid) so must have went to Hwy 30 exit near Blair, NE.

About 4:00 p/m this afternoon spotted what I think was a 310 MH going southbound on the 205 at exit 12a, Portland, OR.

My first thought: 'I wonder if that was Bess', we were in a car going northbound.

One more from our trip to Sweet Home, OR in June. Note that the date on my camera was not set properly . This was the third weekend of June, 2012.

The trailers are from the lead - 1949 19' Westcraft Trolley top, 1949 29' Spartan Manor, 1964 19' Silver Streak Sabre, 1953 22' Airstream Flying Cloud, 1958 17' Silver Streak Chico, and we were pulling up the rear with our 1960 24' Tradewind.

We sure did get a lot of honks and waves (with all fingers showing no less).

Yesterday afternoon we saw two Airstreams headed north on MO-13. The first was a motor home just south of Bolivar, MO. The second was a trailer, perhaps 25 feet or so, closer to Springfield.

Anyone on the forum?

Isla de Café, spotted on a hot Sunday night in Chicago's (rough but getting better) Humboldt Park neighborhood.

An article about them.

Not Quite an Airstream

This one serves as a mobile tasting room for Bendistillery, a maker of hand-crafted gin and vodka. Spotted it in their parking lot last Friday in Bend, OR.

Interesting! That's the first I've heard of Avalair.

I was watching The Trailer Park Boys tonight. Pretty clever show with some dope smoking idiots who stay drunk. Anyway their newest scheme was to grow pot in this.

That ford truck with the AS built onto it, is probably the best modification I have seen. post # 3135

Also spotted an 80's or 90's AS pulled over in a litter pull out on US 50 between Delta and Grand Junction CO today. Being pulled by a Dodge Pickup.
