I saw an AS on state route 44 near Eustis, FL this morning. I would guess a 25 or 27 foot FC.

What a beauty.....

Did a 2 week trip to Florida recently and saw many Streams. Even had a mini caravan with one rolling together on I-95. But this beauty was parked in the campground at Salt Springs in Ocala National Forest. Was told it is a 1958. Had Missiouri plates.

Believe we saw the same one tinbender posted about six weeks ago in Navarre, Fl, at the Santa Rosa RV Park. It had Missouri plates and I was told by others it was a 1958. We're from Missouri as well and would have liked to have met the owners, but never saw them.

Last month in St. Augustine we saw what I think was a fairly recent Bambi close to Comachee Harbor parked in the back yard. Frequently there was a MINI Cooper out front.

Also saw a new silver Airstream Interstate Sprinter driving around downtown St. Augustine.

And of course while visiting the Kennedy Space Center we saw the gorgeous AS Motorhome on display with the Space Shuttle.

Saw probably six or so on the I-75 driving back to towards Canada. One of them was huge tri-axle variant.

Saw four Airstreams yesterday along the Oregon coast on Route 101 from Cannon Beach to Bullards Beach State Park. Three were on the road headed north, and a fourth was camping at Beverly Beach State Park. It was a great day for Airstreaming.

[QUOTE=FastEddieB;1572176]Laura and

Next time we have a few days of good weather forecast, the plan is for Karen to drive down in the Flex while I fly down in the Sky Arrow. The goal is to leave the Flex there so we have myriad options to get down there and then have wheels to do camping trips in FL for the next few


I hope it's not too late to roll back a few pages and ask about your SKY ARROW,
Great name, and there is lots of aluminum in planes. So could you tell us a bit about yours. I love the whole grass runway, small vintage plane kind of thing too.

Cheers Richard

OK, so I should have googled it first. Not vintage, or much aluminum involved, but still a cool plane. Was yours a kit plane. Did you put it together? Must be a very nice viewing platform with the big canopy short nose, and the engine out back. Neat. What sort of range does it have?
Looks like it would have a good glide ratio.

Cheers Richard

Airstream sightings

Saw a 25 - 30 foot AS perhaps 80s or 90s vintage (blue stripe), a fellow Texan towing with a white GMC heavy duty at mile marker 73 rest area eastbound I40 in Tennesee. We were pulling off into rest stop as he went by and honked This was Sunday

Saw this Airstream being used as a snack-bar called the Silver Bullet on the Parade in Napier, New Zealand yesterday. We've been in NZ almost a month touring the North Island by car, and this is the first Airstream we've spotted. Smaller caravans are the key here as the roads are VERY curvy with lots of hairpin turns. Towing Silver Fern, our 27, would have been a big challenge.

Saw this one today in Sausalito CA. Not sure of the story on how it comes to be there. I love the door in a door.

Saw four Airstream trailers today, all within a few miles, all in the town of Sebring, FL, all within an hour of each other. What was going on? Was it just a coincidence? Or, maybe it was people arriving at Sebring for race week?
A 25' being pulled by a black Silverado, going south on US 27
A 16' being pulled by a white Silverado, going north on US 27
A 30' or 34' in a RV park in the distance (could not see the axles behind some shrubs)
A 30' pulled by a light color pickup truck, coming out of Hammock Road (Hammock State Park) onto north US 27.
