Airstream sightings

It seems like I go months without seeing an Airstream and then I see one or more every time I venture out on the road. This morning (Saturday, July 13, 2013) shortly before 11:15 AM, I spotted an Airstream Land Yacht Motorhome heading North on Interstate 57 just North of the Interstate 24 Interchange. Didn't catch color or brand of the toad, but the Motorhome was trimmed in spring green (at least that is what the color was called on Argosy in 1979).

Kevin

P.S.: This was just before the exit for Herrin, Illinois.

We are near Cleveland and not far from the turnpike. Hollar if you need courtesy parking!

Spotted two today on our way back to South Carolina from D.C. yesterday. The First one was an older 25 or 27 behind a Suburban on I-81 in Virginia. The second was an '80s(?) model 30 or 31 footer with the blue band behind a green Ford Super Duty getting onto I-77 north in Rock Hill, SC. Also got a huge grin and a wave from a lady riding shotgun in a silver Mercedes on the beltway headed out of D.C. Possible fellow Airstreamer, but definitely a fan of vintage aluminum.

Airstream as a Billboard

7/14/2013. On a long weekend trip to visit the Montana Relatives, saw this Airsteam advertising the Woodland RV Park while passing through Libby. It's only been there a couple of months. We also had a late model Bambi in trail between Sandpoint and Priest River, we headed on home, they turned up the highway to Priest Lake......nice!

It's funny how different our experiences can be. I was just on a trip to Portage, Indiana and back over the weekend (I was on the road Thursday and Sunday), on many of the same roads, and I didn't see a single Airstream the entire time!

I spent this past Friday night at my parents 5th wheel at Shore Acres park in Port Dover, Ontario. 4 Airstreams this time!

- 70's that's always there,
- 34' Tri axle, it think he's a fulltimer
- a Bunk house
- an Excella

Made me whish I was in my Airstream instead of the wide white box!

I spotted a nice Airstream trailer converted to a food trailer named Coffestream at our local farmers market.

Spotted 19' airstream somewhere in MN I think being pulled by VW Tiguan. Not sure where but unusual to see pulled by car.
