Saw you, westbound on I-10, thirty miles east of Quartzsite. Dark grey tow vehicle, possibly a Ford F-250. Newer Airstream....

Cool, saw another westbound on I-10 thirty-five miles from Quartzsite. A long blue striper towed by a bluish older Expedition or Excursion. Safe travels...

On I-35 north of Oklahoma City yesterday..... near Edmond, saw a 34' tri-axle heading south, being towed by a white 3/4-ton... maybe a Dodge?

Yesterday I was on my way to fish at Taylorsville Lake, KY, passing by the campground. I saw an Airstream Excella (I think), about 30', pulling out. Rolled down the window and waved, no time for a photo. It was a beautiful morning; gentle breeze, sun was up and about 59 degrees.

Heading home today from Red Rock Canyon State Park in Hinton, OK: saw a 28-footer(?) heading west on I-40 on the west side of OKC...... then a motorhome (not the silver kind) that was heading west new Shawnee, OK..... Then an early 70's tandem axle trailer a few miles past Shawnee, OK... Then a newer AS somewhere near Sallisaw, OK..... none in Arkansas the rest of the way home.

News clippings as "sightings" is stretching things IMO.

As the first post said . . .

There is a forum for Airstream In The News:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f224/

. . . where clippings, photos and links to articles work great IMO.


As far as actual in-person sightings go, there is an interesting continuity here in seeing the geographical diversity in the photos and text reports IMO.

Saw lots of AS in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley this weekend.

Thursday night there were five AS at Shenandoah River State Park (32 total campsites!) - an older 23 Safari, 2 Bambi's, a 25+, and us.

Friday we saw 2 AS headed north on Route 340 and an Argosy and a 25+ in Big Meadows campground in Shenandoah NP.

Yesterday we saw a 25+ entering onto Route 7 and had a bonus sighting of a Bowlus Road Chief that we followed through Front Royal. First time seeing one of those on the road...

So now everyone should post "non-sightings" here?

The Airstream in the news forum works just fine for clippings, photos, and news articles, etc., as linked earlier.

Several sightings on our trip to Texas.
1. 10/18/2017 30’ towed by current body style dark color GM extended cab pickup I-20 eastbound in Louisiana -wouldn’t flash lights
2. 10/18/2017 older 25’ Safari towed by dark color current body style Sequoia I-20 eastbound in Louisiana - wouldn’t flash lights
3. 10/18/2017 current body style silver Intestate I-220 bypass westbound Bossier City/Shreveport, LA
4. 10/21/2017 older 25’ Safari towed by new white Tundra 1794 Edition at Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, TX- He comes to the Casita rally that happens every year after our LA-TX Christian RV rally.
5. 10/22/2017 newer I-220 bypass westbound Shreveport, LA at the road construction - newer 25 or 27- Don’t recall tow vehicle- maybe an F150- would not flash lights
6. 10/23/2017 current body style white Interstate I-20 eastbound I-20 in Louisiana- would not flash lights
7. 10/23/2017 I-20 westbound in Louisiana newer 25 or 27 towed by newer tan or gold Expedition or Navigator- flashed lights like crazy. I flashed back. Felt silly and giddy, but comforting and satisfying at the same time-
