The sides are painted- trim and all- with a cool seal type roof coating product. The whole roof is covered with some thick black roofing tar. The banana wraps are all gone. There is nothing on the roof- no A/C, skylights- nothing.
I knew it was an old Airstream with a black roof a half a mile before I caught up to it.
Ours isn't the prettiest on the road, but it's no where near that condition. Such a sad sight.

Is it cheating to post these pics in this thread?

hi from AZ. . .Those were factory built as funeral coaches, so you could ride along with your dearly departed to the cemetery . We saw one at Springstream a couple of years ago. Kind of creepy I thought. Regards, Craig

Spotted one Boon-docking in Breckenridge, Colorado, as we rode the Gondola from peak 8.

Oh wow, that hurts to look at. Doesn't look like severe damage. Maybe they can salvage her to camp another day.

Yes, but a little west of there. I came down the RC road and camped at Bitteroot campground. It is beautiful is it not?

I got desperate. I have just returned from Fort Lauderdale and did not see a single Airstream. The young owners of this one certainly must have one in the future. For now, this must do, and they are very happy to be out there. On 95, north of Boca. Saturday. Jim

Well I see fresh steel under the rear end, so it looks like it could be a work in progress. I would rather see a rough worn out AS still being used than have it sent to the scrap yard. With that many body issues, only a few brave folks would put the time and money into it.

Banff, AB, Canada

We saw many Airstreams during our stay from September 5-8, 2013. We didn't get pictures of all that we saw -- so much Aluminum!

Plates were from: Alberta, Saskatchewan, Oregon, California, and Florida.
