Passed what looked to be a white work truck (ladder racks, etc) pulling a 60s vintage Bambi sized airstream westbound on I-10 in Baton Rouge.

We're in Moab, and did the Manti - La Sal loop. We saw at least five Airstreams on that trip, including one that I have no idea how they got it up the side of the mountain. Two were just in difficult places, and two at the Kens Lake campground. The camp host had one, and there was a 34 in another spot. I didn't expect to see that many.

Went horseback riding thru The Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Co. on Monday. This AS was tucked away at the rear of the property next door to the horse ranch we used. Looks slightly different, but VERY similar to our own. *Note the tail lights.

Today, 65 highway north of Clinton Arkansas, newer Airstream pulled by GM pickup heading south passed us as we were heading north-- we flashed lights as we passed each other on the crest of the hill.

On a week long trip through Arkansas, Tennessee Mississippi and Missouri, saw one really nice 73 Argosy in Mississippi River State Park outside of Marianna Arkansas, one older 70s model 31' on some interstate in Memphis, and several parked Airstreams at various places on the highways.

This 34' Excella is next to me at the campground.
I have not met the couple, but they are friends of my neighbor, also in the campground with their Sovereign.

This 3 axle Avion is at the other campground at the south end of the dam.
It really looks quality, but is made by Fleetwood.
Apparently Fleetwood was at least as good as Thor at some point.
I think Fleetwood only makes motorhomes since the market crash in '08.

Avion (owned by Ligon Ent. at the time) was sold to Fleetwood in 1976. Fleetwood continued production of the silver Avion until 1990. They made many improvements but production costs eventually drove Fleetwood away from the silver Avion.

This beautiful 68 Safari pulled in alongside of me at the east bound En Route near Port Hope on Friday. It was completely renovated by the nice young couple who were obviously enjoying the fruits of their labour. Jim

Not an Airstream- possibly not even "vintage kin"- but cool/retro/art deco none the less-
Leaving the campground at Hugh White State Park, Grenada, MS on Scenic Loop 333 and MS Highway 8.
He had a traffic jam of people admiring his rig.
A Flxible Clipper I believe- just like the red RV in the Robyn Williams movie-
It looks like a Greyhound bus from the 50's.
