No, I've never been there. You'll be able to recognize mine by the flames coming out of the wheelwell, the 454 Chevy insignia, and the "Mom" decal on the front sides. Also has paintball splatter stickers on the sides and fake bullet hole stickers on the radiator.

Airstream sighting

Yesterday I saw a single axle Globe Trotter for sale in Round Rock, TX.
The owners phone number is 512-255-0887.
This trailer look to be in good shape and was polished not too long ago.

Drive north

Saw a bunch of trailers at Don Mar RV in SC and Safford RV in VA. On the road, we saw a B-Van at South of the Border. Saw another Airstream trailer in NC at exit 145 noryhon I-95 in NC at the Shoney's...WBCCI 2590. Then, hooked up with a newer Airstream trailer heading north out of the KOA on Exit 154 in NC, and pulled with them for a ways. Dropped out trailer off at Safford RV to get a few things Don Mar did not do right fixed....that's another story.

Yes

Yes, it had Obie on the license I think, and a plaque that said Denny's place near the door. Of course, I checked out there rig!. It was a nice one. I think they are from Manheim, PA, and part of the WDCU WBCCI that I am a member of, but we haven't met. Maybe they'll be at Cherry Blossum.

Just went to FL for the weekend and saw 5 Airstream trailers and 1 Class B motorhome on the way down from Atlanta on I-75 on 4/7. Two were triple axels and one was a limited I believe (it was in a Cracker Barrel parking lot next to the interstate). On the way back on 4/10, I saw 5 more travel trailers. Four on the road and one in a camp ground next to the interstate. I figured those north bound were snow birds migrating back home, but those heading south surprised me unless they were heading south for spring break.

Canadian sighting

Caught a quick glimpse of an A/S rolling north on Hwy. 11 just past Orillia, Ontario this Monday morning. Caught me by surprise as you don't see too many A/S tt's up here esp. at this time of year! I'm not an expert on sexing these things just yet, but it looked to be at least 31 feet, more likely 34, probably early to mid 80's vintage with a burgundy beltline stripe. Black tow vehicle, maybe a Suburban or p/u with a cap. Couldn't help but wonder where they were headed, or if it might've been a member of this forum.

You're right it is a real big ordeal when you see one up our way - not so much in Western Ontario but Central to North to East is a nice surprise.

My bet is that they were one of the lucky ones returning home from their long warm winter south of the border somewhere.

We had a 3.5 week taste of it and sure can not wait to add to the number of weeks each winter.

And for all those spotters of A/S and Argosy's - don't be shy - drive on up and ask if it is for sale - you might just be pleasantly surprised - just ask Happy Campers - who just picked up one of my sightings (and for a steal)- as an added bonus it happens to be the 10th Argosy of the line - what a lucky find. Too bad Peter and I are partial to the 60's Airstream and real wood....although for a small time like overnight we did say a strong maybe and almost had to change sub forums from the Globe Trotter to the Argosy.

Moral of the story - cut off those sightings stop 'em in the middle of the road and say hello! - or take a chance and drive up and admire someones trailer sitting on their lot - you just might go home with an extra toy.

Hey Peter and Denise - you are not too far from us - we should hook up - send us a PM

Rob & Zoe,

You have a very nice symetry in your airstream collection. The little one is half the length and twice the age of the big one. Did you plan that, or was it an accident?

Strange little Argosy

Last evening, I sighted a tiny Argosy motorhome coming at me on the other side of a divided highway. My guess, it was a 20-footer at most. I didn't get a whole lot of time to look it over since traffic was moving fairly briskly.

The body looked fair, but the paint was in really terrible shape, all faded. peeling, and dirty. The Argosy was pulling a sizeable home-made looking trailer with what looked to me like it may have been a disassembled vendor's booth such as used at flea markets or festivals.

Spotted on I-10

Westbound on I-10 at about mile post 85 in Florida Panhandle yesterday afternoon. Looked like an '80's model 24 to 27 footer. Nice looking TT.
