Oilfield Airstreams

Due to the severe housing shortage there are thousands of travel trailers in use in the oilfield, mostly SOBs, but occasionally you see Airstreams. I saw these 3 in the little town of Goldsmith, out west of Odessa. 3 Airstreams, probably 150 SOBs there.

Tonight as we pulled out of our neighborhood Mrs HiHo said, 'Look, an Airstream is coming down the road'....right, nobody ever comes down here with an Airstream - but she was right!

I believe this one is on a recovery, it kinda looks like one I spotted further out in the country...

We saw a great rig heading NE on 94 in Michigan this AM. It looked like a 2500 towing a 25' Classic, 80's vintage. The truck had a couple of bikes mounted on the cap and a scooter on the Airstream bumper. heading home from a winter South? Only Airstream we saw from Edmonton to Burlington. But then it was -18 in Fargo.

We saw 4 this weekend! The Natchez Trace is a Gold Mine for spotting Airstreams. A widebody 34' Limited was headed North out of Natchez as we were going south (we saw it again today camped at Rocky Springs), a newer 30+-' looped thru the campground at Natchez State park yesterday. On the way home we saw a long 70's headed south on the Trace at Clinton and as we drove thru Rocky Springs there was a real nice newer unit that we waved at.

Fun with some vintage ones

Okay, these weren't actually on the road, but got really excited to see these vintage ones together in Nevada City, CA.

What you might have seen were the members of WBCCI Unit 6 leaving Grand Gulf State Park. We had a Unit Spring rally with 15 Airstreams present including one from Canada, two from Lousiana and a couple from Alabama. The rest were from Mississippi.

We just saw a gorgeous new Flying Cloud headed south on I-75 with Ohio plates, straight from the factory we bet! Headed to a dealer? To a lucky new owner? It was being towed by a truck with "professional mover" magnets.

Saw two this weekend. One at the dump station at Elk Neck State Park in Maryland, towed by a Jeep, Friday. The other was today on I-695 outer loop heading toward the Key Bridge, pulled off to the side of the road (hope everything was okay - we were going the other way or we would've stopped).
