I spotted one yesterday southbound on I-81 about 1:30-1:45, looked to be a 34, I think the numbers was 3484. I was sitting on the northbound side in stopped traffic due to an accident ahead where a UPS truck rear ended a camper. UPS driver was killed, family in camper seriously injured.

Our son and his wife are in the Banff area and told us they saw 6 Airstreams in the campground. Thanks for posting, now we've seen them too.

Maybe some one sighted my 1958 Flying Cloud on I-205/I-5 southbound in Oregon with a flat tire. I spotted two newer AS while I was waiting for road service. It was scary watching traffic come around the corner at 65-70 mph.

Back home safely now in Lincoln City.

No photos, but we saw three this week while traveling in eastern NC.
First, a Bambi at Oregon Inlet Campground at the Hatteras National Seashore. I briefly spoke to the owner when we first walked by the trailer as we were going to register, but we never connected again.
Second, another Bambi at Frisco Campground, also in the HNS. Saw no one at this trailer.
Third, a 28-30' (?) followed me from Tarboro to Raleigh, NC, I blinked the head lights and we waved to each other.

I am at Camping World in Chattenooga TN, and there is a older AS MoHo here in the park. Have not seen anyone around since I got here last night.

I've been all over this week. Started it Sunday going to see the saints/bucs game in Tampa and almost missed the Airstream graveyard on the side of the interstate. No other sightings until today when I spotted a 30ish foot classic southbound on I-49 just south of Shreveport being pulled by a tan GM full-size SUV at about 1 pm. Then I spotted a late 60s early 70s looked to be ambassador towed by a black Tundra (I believe) exiting I-20 on the tech drive exit in Ruston, la. I was incognito in work vehicles both times, but waved anyway.

saw today just a bit of an older (possibly 70's) nice and shiny AS parked in Tuscaloosa at a lot in cottondale....wanted to go and meet them, since I will have my AS in 6 weeks...I would love to join the UA festivities from my AS one day perhaps. Did not have time to get a pic

After the flood

On Wednesday, I saw large single-axle AS towed by a white pickup pulling into the highway 66 road closure checkpoint near Lyons, Colorado. Either they were bringing in shelter to use during recovery/rebuilding, or they were some very out-of-touch tourists about to have their dreams of vacation in Rocky Mountain National Park dashed.

Don and Kate (we think) heading east on I 20 near Augusta GA. A little hard to tell seeing only the back of the trailer.

My sister ( not an Airstreamer but trailer trash non the less) reported seeing 5 southbound Steams, scattered out, on I77 in SC this morning/afternoon.. very likely Alumalina antendees headed home to the lower part of the state.

We just returned from a trip to the UP in Michigan. Airstreams and a few Argosy everywhere. Only one other at the campground we stayed at in the UP, but two Argosys (?). I had to give several tours to people excited about seeing an Airstream.

Saw a nice shiny new Airstream yesterday, probably a 25 footer, being towed by a grey Town and Country minivan. We were within a few Kms of Can Am RV, though, so it may have been one of Andrew T's test fleet.
