Older Tundras were little wimpy things.

While on the road for about 1500 miles, I sighted five Airstreams, two pictured here:

Passing through Allenwood, PA this morning and saw a nice '72 Overlander (?) parked in a lot. Looked like it was being used residentially, as it was hooked up to a big propane tank. Numbers: 17697

In season 1 of Under the Dome one of the characters goes up to an AS and pounds on the side. You can see the aluminum bending when she hit it.

I cringed when I saw that.

I wonder if the driver of the red truck with the newer AS realizes his door is open? I assume this is not a fancy new feature in modern AS.

We usually leave our door open too when parked at a rest area and are inside brewing up a pot of coffee .

Saw one headed south on 441 this afternoon about 15 mile north of I-75... Didn't catch what type as it was headed the other direction from me, and surprised me. I never see another Airstream around here, except when I drive past JD Sanders everyday, but new on the lot probably doesn't count. If it happened to be you, I was the idiot in the red VW Jetta, waving like a little kid...

We had a reverse sighting last time we were towing our AS. A nice young couple pulled up beside us, honking their horn. We looked down at them quickly, wondering what in the world might be going on. They were waving like mad, grinning from ear to ear, giving us big thumbs up and yelling, "Awesome trailer!"

Fun!

As I was getting ready to leave the house last Friday a random couple stopped by to ask questions about the trailer.
When got to Grenada an 18 wheeler driver blew his air horn.
Monday at the campground another random couple stopped by to look at the trailer.

No really has approached me much - except the nice middle aged Mennonite woman camping in the 1964 airstream who came by to tell me she liked my AS

Otherwise I have only had a couple "hey, how much that thing cost?!" For which my universal answer now is "don't know mah daddy bought it for me"
