Urban Camping

There is a fairly new Airstream cozily parked in a back yard garden at the corner of Hanna and Rumsey in the upper middle class East York / Leaside part of TORONTO.

I haven’t seen an Airstream in the downtown core for many years. There used to be an old Argosy in the light industrial/ working class area around the Tarragon Theatre many years ago.

That was when I was just daydreaming. By the time I got up the courage to try to penetrate the NO TRESPASSING and MIND THE DOG warnings and knock on the door of the ramshackle house, the trailer had disappeared.

Spotted ~30ft? Airstream behind Ford SD pickup, heading south on I-85 just north of Charlotte, NC today. Had WBCCI numbers, but didn't see them well enough...

South of San Antonio, Texas on Highway 181 just north of Loop 1604 behind the fence of a storage facility. And missing a curbside hatch cover!

That's the infamous "Break Wind" I hear mentioned on the VAP occasionally.

Less than 1,000 lbs loaded will be tough to attain. I can't wait to see it finished.

If it isn't made by Airstream, is it really an Airstream or is it a something that looks like an Airstream?

Having seen some of GSM Vehicle's other work, I'm willing to bet this will look far from "destroyed" when it's finished.

I do understand where you're coming from though - tough to watch an oldie go through any major modification like that and not feel a twinge of sadness.

If it saved the pieces of a "too far gone" vintage trailer from going to a scrapyard, I applaud his efforts and consider it saving a vintage AS rather than destroying it. The sadness I feel comes from the fact that someone let the donor get to the point that anyone was willing to chop it up.
