Looks like an Avion truck camper.

Cool Deal, Thanx for the info!!

As I headed south on my Honda GoldWing on I-77 from West Virginia and entered Virginia, there is a rest stop for southbound vehicles and probably a 25' Clasic was parked there behind a pickup.

Busy Day yesterday, July 1st. Met this nice Lady Piloted 2008 Safari as she pulled in to the rest area next to us at the East Bound rest area of I-26. She was headed home after a nice weekend in the mountains. Even though there are 50 years between them, you can still see the family resemblance.

We saw several vintage Airstreams that need some tlc on the side of the road between north Louisiana and south Missouri, but none being used until Branson.
We were in branson last week. 24' tradewind 1959 wbcci 7482. Did you spotbus?

In June we traveled to Texas, San Antonio and Galveston. While down there we saw on Craigslist a AS with a slide out. I posted the link on here.

Today, in Branson, MO, down by Lake Taneycomo, we saw another AS with a slide out. As I was taking a photo, a lady came out and we started talking. She was having a house raised and the contractor let her stay in his AS which, according to the lady, he just got in Texas.

I'm on my phone and can't post photos but I wonder if it is the same trailer? How many AS have slide outs?

We in Rockaway Beach cabined out

Hi from AZ. . . On Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives last night, saw an AS trailer being used as a kitchen in a Phoenix restaurant called "Duce". Very interesting looking deal, apparently you can have a workout, box, shop, and have lunch all in the same joint !?! I'll post a pic, cause you KNOW I'm gonna check it out ! regards, Craig

No! I'd have loved to have seen that one, though. We didn't pull in until Saturday afternoon and are staying in the back newer loop of Indian Point. The other guys left (forgot about the weekend turnover) before I got to chat, though. Bummer.

Somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico

Hey Guys,

I have a special airstream sighting for you. This is in the Gulf of Mexico, about an hour south of Fairhope, Al. And no its not photoshopped.

Wow I think if I were sending mine I would put it in a box not on top. Unless of course I was still in it. Then I would want to "sea" out.
Having watched several fishing shows on discovery Channel I would not want mine in that spot.

Question

I thought the same thing...what were they thinking, up front, on top of a container.

Was it coming or going?
