Who was heading South between Courtenay and Nanaimo on Vancouver Island today? California plates towing what looked to be a 25 or 27 foot new trailer. I was in the maroon Volvo wagon and tapped my horn and waved as I passed. I was on my way home from a job site and travel that route every couple of weeks and must confess, this was the firs Airstream I've seen on that stretch of highway in ages. Whoever it was, I hope you are having a great trip and are enjoying our Island paradise.

I saw this beautiful little trailer while on a trip thru Wisconsin. The owner gave me a little tour and hinted that it may be for sale soon. Looks all original!
I was going to take more pictures but my phone died on me

I'd love to have it! Thats a 1958 Pacer. It's just like mine. Although it appears to be in better shape than mine was. As Found. Mine was built just after that. Considering how that rear bumper looks, I bet the frame is rusted too. If the owner does want to sell and you don't want her, let me know. I'll sure go and get it to make sure it gets restored. I love my pacers. Only 42 built that year. I have one, but would love another!

I57 Illinois

Just after I said "How come we never see other Airstreams when we are on the road" this one passed us going Northbound on I57.

We were towing "Belle" Southbound on I57 Friday afternoon from Chicago to Champaign IL, look closely the driver is waving as we passed.

Met another Airstream on Highway 2 near West Glacier Sunday. We blinked and waved, and so did they. Didn't get a good look, but I think it was a late model.

I'll contact the owner and let you know. It's a beauty for sure.

Passed a smaller AS (Bambi?) headed toward Estes Park on Hwy 36 Westbound while I was traveling eastbound today out of Rocky Mtn National Park. We did the AS wave and passed each other. Hope they had as nice a time as I did up in the park!

I am at Cypress in Myrtle Beach and there is another 25' Airstream right down the way from me and then a HUGE 3 axle 80's Excella out near the entrance that looks like it is here for awhile. I do not think I have ever been to a campground this small and seen this many Airstreams in it.

Airstream sightings

I was peering out an 7th floor window at St. Louis University Medical Center today (09-2-12) about 10:30 AM, and observed a Vintage Airstream being pulled by a dark late model vehicle headed East on I-64.

Older Tradewind pulled by a big, silver Dodge dually - Texas plates - just south of Missoula, northbound on US 93 today. No picture - they're too quick when they come toward you!
