Saw a 70s model AS on I-285 in north Atlanta yesterday around 11:30 AM(?). It was going west as I was driving east. Didn't get a good look at it as there is a concrete wall between the lanes.

Passed this guy today on the way south down I75 to see The Florida Aquarium in Tampa. Also passed a trailer park that had a few of them too.

Florida must have the most RVs per capita in the world, even more than Ohio.

If I'm rong, someone will say so....believe it or not I think it was used as a support for an awning/tarp to cover the trailer. I asked the same question at the show but the owner wasn't available and no one seemed to know for sure.

South of Crockett, TX

FYI - Last weekend I spotted these two early sixties Airstreams in what looked like a salvage yard on Hwy 19 south of Crockett, TX. There were several old SOB's and junk cars there as well.

The one on the left was an Overlander and the one on the right was a Tradewind ($2500 ea.). I called the phone number on the fence and the owner stated that he also had a '60's Globetrotter (not visible from the highway) but he wanted $3M for it.

Last time I used Roman numerals "M" represented 1000.

A million is an M with a bar on top which indicates the number should be muliplied by 1000 (1000 X 1000).
____
MMM = 3,000,000.
