It's called the "Hairstream" and is apparently the local barbershop/salon.

On the way back from the wreck in Illinois where Foiled Again demonstrated that origami doesn't work on aluminum and the Mother Truck became pretzelized, we saw two Airstreams. Both Karen and Sue would yell "Don't Look Ethel" (from a song called "the streak").

But I did look. Both were 25 FB's. One was kind of interesting. The newish (2006 or later) FB was noticeably higher than it should have been. Almost like someone had replaced or doubled the height of the frame. Looked like a true boondocker. That was Thursday and it was westbound on I-64.

On Wed we saw another also westbound, but no identifying numbers marks, etc.

That tall trailer you saw might have been an Eddie Bauer with the wide black fender molding.

A little bit of shade tree engineering.

I saw this one on I 95 South back in May.

That one must have been hit in rear and that's how they fixed it.

Cocktail anyone?

I guess I have trained my daughter correctly. She sent me these photos of an Airstream Bar inside of the new Whole Foods Market at the Collection at Riverpark, Ventura County, California. She is in one of the photos with my grandaughter. The grand opening was yesterday 6-17-13. I don't think that Airsteam is going anywhere...besides it would be wobbling. Even a pro-pride wouldn't stop the sway.

"Hairstream"! That's a hoot! Good catch!

Saw this one yesterday at the Udvar-Hazy Space Museum. It was the mobile quarantine facility for NASA. Looks like it needs axles and a hitch before you can tow it down the road.

Doesn't look like they will be doing any off-roading or boondocking with it.

Monday morning about 10:00, I saw a 16' to 20' Airstream towed by a white ?? truck headed north on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Blowing Rock, NC. It was foggy and raining and we were passing in a curve, so I did not get a good look. But I did flash my head lights and waved. I was not towing.

I ALWAYS flash my lights and wave when I see a family member. After about 7 weeks on the road since the 1st of the year, I have only had about 4 other 'Streamers acknowledge. That surely doesn't happen in a campground, though!
