34 foot Classic with Texas plates pulled into the KOA in Bowling Green late this afternoon. Turns out he is on his way to JC for some work. We chatted about our relative AS experiences. First time outside of the Piney Woods rallies that we have had an AS pull on to a campground that we got to chat

Normally my attempts to photograph AS's on the road look like this....

There is an AS right behind the red truck. Caught sleeping in an ex weight station turned overnight truck stop.

My luck changed today. I merged onto I-40 at Fort Smith AR about 50 feet behind somebody, and I finally got a decent photo. They had a AF sticker and Florida plates. We had a impromptu caravan for about an hour.

Saw an excella over this past weekend in Hixon TN at Chester frost park (30 min outside Chattanooga )

Got no photo unfortunately - looked in fantastic condition - perhaps a newly applied clear coat

Just returned from a 900 mile trip to Texas-
Didn't see any Airstreams, but did see 2 Avion trailers and an Airstream B190.
A Casita/Scamp/Escape rally was moving into Salmon Lake Park as we were moving out.

Our trip to Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky netted 6 sightings with the latest being last night and this morning. A couple full timing in a 25 headed for the Outer Banks for a volunteer position starting in January. They were camped across the way at Village Creek State Park, Arkansas which is a nice park 42 miles west of Memphis and 13 miles north of I-40. Just wish that it wasn't 399 miles from home. A long days tow but a good halfway point in our annual trek to Bowling Green KY

Does the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile with vanity plate BIG BUN count?

We were at St Joseph State Park last week in Port St Joe, FL. There were 5 Airstreams. We met 3 of the other owners, waved to one, and didn't meet the 5th because they were in a different loop. We ended up having beverages at the beach with two of the couples watching the sunset. We were the last six people on the beach walking home in the dark. We exchanged info with one of the couples and are sure we will camp with them in the future. We've met some of our best friends camping with our Airstream. I loved the post that asked "when you see another Airstream while camping, do you make a point of introducing yourself?" We always do if the owners are out and not eating or involved in some other way where it would seem intrusive if we walked into their campsite.

We saw 8 Airstreams on our trip through the Hudson River Valley this weekend. This may be a new single weekend record.

Beautiful part of the country, great time of year to visit.

Two days ago spotted two 30 plus footers on I10 west bound just north of Ocean Springs, MS. Currently surrounded by aluminum at Top Of Georgia Airstream Park.

There are at least 4 other airstreams in the Albuquerque KOA right now. Plus us. A lady pulled in yesterday afternoon with a 2012 AS. She shouted out a greeting as she was following the KOA golf cart to her assigned space. She made it a point to yell something about fellow Airstreamers. She came over about half an hour later and asked if we were the red truck and Airstream that passed her at about 75 mph coming from Arizona, honking a hello as we went by.
I said no, it wasn't us. We tow at 65 and the horn on the F 250 doesn't work. Besides, we came from the north....not the west...
Then it started raining and she scooted back to her trailer. We would have liked to talk more, she seemed real nice. But it poured all afternoon. In NM, no less.

To be honest I never considered forming a relationship based upon a consumer brand or marketing pressure. It's a camping/travel trailer. And that's how we think of it. This whole "Airstreamer" thing is a bit of a puzzle. Never happened with my Jamboree Class C.
