a big 34-foot excella just pulled into the KOA in Manchester, TN. Parked a few rows away from us. It's big, pretty and shiny... No numbers. Think they're from Ohio.

hello! {wave}

Last week
my husband and I were heading to Wilmington NC to see an airstream from Craigslist the one we were going to see was 19' 1972 , on the way down on 17 we saw the same size and around the same year I think going to Surf City. We were so afraid it was the one we were going to look at being already sold. Well it wasn't but by the time we got there someone had put a deposit on it, ugh!

STOP IT!!! You're gonna make us all tear up and everything. Maybe you shouldn't park it where you can see it.
This is our friends' trailer last winter, all lonely and cold at the lake.

I have seen a 1990's 28ft/30ft airstream with parked in Brighton, MI, right past the Spence road entrance ramp on eastbound. Its just parked there, wondering who it belongs to?

Early this afternoon, we spotted an Airstream with a Florida Marine Corps tag eastbound on I-10 in Jackson County near Marianna. SuEllyn was able to snap a couple of pictures.

80s or maybe early 90s 31' Sovereign behind a gray Chevy truck overnighting in the Wal-Mart parking lot off I-77 in Columbia (Just outside the gates of Ft. Jackson) Had Ontario plates and WBCCI number 5388 on the trailer. Would have stopped to say hello, but owners were already sound asleep.

Woke up this morning, looked out our rear dinette window and spied #15523, a lovely 34-footer with a white chevy TV. Florida plates on the AS.

Is it Christmas?

We're at the Manchester, TN KOA off I-24.

It's a wonderful way to start the week off!
:-D)

Hello neighbor!

Slightly off topic, but also on topic. An airstream sighting in a movie.

Fortunately, I will link to the movie trailer, sporting this trailer.



My name is Bruce - but he is clearly hanging out at some of the time in an airstream. There's also a sign of a knife possibly entering that trailer - which is not so good.

Last night a 23-25 foot safari rolled into the campground we're at (KOA Manchester, TN). No numbers...

"Hi!"

It appears to be an early 60's model. Has anyone seen the movie yet? We're going to the (Minneapolis) premiere.

I hope that wasn't flames coming out of the trailer, at the end of the trailer.

Saw three on I-10 between San Antonio and Junction, TX, on Saturday the 29th between 1:30 and 2:30 PM: a 20-some footer who waved back, and two Execellas who didn't. Maybe us 'little trailer folks' are harder to spot?

The movie "trailer" had several shots of the inside of the Airstreams and I saw a "Door-Withing-A-Door" in one scene, so the trailer is 1964 or earlier. I'm guessing it is a longer one, probably 26+' and most likely early 60's due to the interior cabinets (as already suggested by markdoane).

As I was heading north on US 23 today at about 12:47 pm I saw a 34 footer heading south at Mile Marker 7 in Michigan. It was being towed by a very late model Chevy pickup Fawn in color...
