The smell of vintage aluminum

The boss and I made the 1,000 mile trip from Vero Beach, FL to Frederick, MD yesterday. I95 was not heavily traveled northbound for most of that trip. In places in NC it was even closed due to flooding. It was more heavily traveled southbound and we saw four separate Airstreams moving toward Florida. All were in north Florida or southern Georgia, all were late model (probably 2000 or newer) and all larger models (25+ footers). One had a set of WBCCI numerals on the front. It looks like the migration south has begun!

Although our 2014 EB 25 was left at home for this trip, we managed to drag some vintage aluminum behind the trusty Tundra. See pic below. I believe that what we had was the U-Haul equivalent of a restaurant framing the first dollar that reached its till. I couldn't find a U-Haul serial number on this rig, but I'm thinking it began with a series of zeros.

Enjoy Florida you snowbirds! We'll be home soon to join you. Our next trip is the Florida keys for Thanksgiving.

I saw one other Airstream at Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, TX yesterday- a 2004 Safari 25 that looked brand new. It was at a Casita rally. The owner's sister has a Casita.
I saw a newer Bambi headed west on I-20 today as i was headed east just inside Louisiana at the Mississippi state line.
2 Airstream sightings in one trip is a somewhat rare occurrence.

Airstream sightings

It's frustrating to report a sighting without a picture. I know I did that some days ago when I reported a sighting on the road - the A1 between Vienna and Linz here in Austria. But it was such a shock and thrill I wanted to share a sighting of an Airstream in Europe. Better need today. Here is what appears to be a 60's era 20-footer made into a store in front of the University of Vienna, Austria. This one we saw from the tram, jumped off and got the pictures. The sales person inside knew it was rebuilt (the serial number plate is now Austrian and says 2015) but he thought it was a copy. I showed him patched tear-drop running lights and water inlets plus original frame and bumpers and assured him it was a "real" Airstream.

I can't post pictures because I am not a "supporting member".

Watched the ad a few times. The AS is bouncing rather violently on the dirt track they are on. A little scary to watch. Maybe it's a stripped one because of the way it's bouncing.

TWO Airstreams pulled into the park today. The first is a fairly new one, but the second one is a mid-70's that has had a shell-off rebuild. It isn't finished yet, but is far enough along that they can take it out and enjoy it. The newer one's owner is on this forum, but the older one isn't, although they said they have visited here a few times.

We have twenty Airstreams ranging in age from a very polished beautiful 13 panel to a 2016 Classic and Pendleton. Several 23' models and a gagle of 27' models.

The Four Corners Unit Pancho Villa Rally in Columbus, NM, a sleepy border town with about 1,700 residents. Border crossings on foot are very casual.
