Yankee Springs State Park

We saw a number of Airstreams and other vintage aluminum campers at Yankee Springs State Park near Grand Rapids, MI this past weekend.

An unrestored Avalair in very good condition - not sure of the year.



A beautifully restored and polished 1946 Spartan Manor.




A 1947 Spartan Manor. It doesn't show well in the photo, but this trailer had dual wheels, a feature the owner thought was original to the trailer. He said he'd never seen it on another Spartan.



A Tiny Home with a completely new shell


and a couple of Airstreams

Left Starlite campground this morning that has several "vintage kin" including another Streamline. While driving, I saw a newer AS going down monarch pass in Colorado, hwy 50 ,today as I was heading up. Flashed lights and waved, but...
Also saw a small AS maybe a Bambi behind a nice yellow apache truck, like the one from "every which way but loose", in Salida, co.
Moving too fast for any pics.

Hope to see some of you all at the Virginia Highland Haven Airstream Park this weekend. Keep an eye out for me on the road going south. I lost my numbers but my truck configuration is pretty unique.

Was that a Tin Can Tourist rally?

Not a rally, but the owners of the Spartans, Tiny Home and one of the Airstreams are related.

Beauty of a 1963 Airstream at Riverside State Park, Spokane, WA. Had a lovely chat with the owner. She says it's been updated nicely inside. Looks great from the outside, right down to the white sidewalls!
