Identification

Ingrid,
The top, left one looks very much like a Spartan. Our family lived in one from 1957 to 1964, but not this particular model.

jewel among toy haulers

I was headed north on the 14 in So. CA Sunday after Thanksgiving. Literally 100's of toy haulers heading south, towards home. Saw a jewel among the SOBs (square old boxes) coming down the hill south of Palmdale (4:30ish). Safari SE or International? Hope you had fun! I was wishing I was on an Airstream trip too!

on the 18th of Nov we were coming back from Port Townsend, WA and still on Whidby Island when a late model Safari behind an almost new dark blue F250 (I think) passed us heading south. Beautiful combo, and it sure warmed the heart to see them zipping down the road. That trailer and truck sure were a stand out over the other SOB's we had seen on the trip.

I think you're right.

Folks, remember the game rules:

Airstream Sighting: 1 point
Vintage Airstream sighting: 2 points
Polished vintage Airstream: 5 points
Connecting with the owner on the forums: (I'm tempted to say "priceless" but...)

TEN POINTS!!

My first "sighting post" and I made a connection with Goin camping, priceless I say (but I'll take the ten points). BTW I picked my smilie not because it was sarcastic, I think it looks 'dreamy', just like I feel about my Airstream! Now I'm off to Google Panamint Valley.
