They are 2 ends of damaged 13 panels that are being put together. So its parts are all originally airstream parts. Its about the same as the 5th wheel one- as far as weather or not its an airstream- its a modified one.

Boy, am I jealous

Coming out of Oklahoma on I-35 this AM, I saw a 70's(?) 25' + Airstream with a white canoe strapped to the roof of the tow vehicle....headed North. Perfect weather now too. Its time to polish up and head out!

Just got back from visiting the Mouse down in FL and saw a few on the road. There was a newer (2000+) 3 axle following us home on 95/ 26. And we saw a sad damaged trailer being "rescued?" on interstate 40 between Asheville & knoxville- it was 70's something covered in moss and dirt with a large dent in the front end cap.

Then of course there was this one that followed us home from Knoxville- it tailgated us the whole time!

I'm looking forward to more pictures of your new 'Stream. I think you may need to change your name from 3streams!

Best wishes,

I wish it was that easy to get them home- just dangle some nuvite from behind and they follow all the way home!

Mines Road, Livermore, CA

I rode my bike up Mines Road in Livermore, CA and saw this one on the left side of the road as you're traveling up the hill. It's parked at a place called "Ruth's Trash and Treasure". Big red barn at the side of the road.

It looks like a 60's model, is a double axle and is definitely longer than 24' because it's longer than our Tradewind. I asked what year it was and she said she didn't know, but my riding partner said he thought she had said it was for sale. I was yelling from across the road...

Here's a link to the rig, sorry it's so small, it's from my cell.

Mines Road Livermore on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Let me know if you want more info on how to find it, etc. It's in the boonies but not that hard to find.

We took the moho to Crater of Diamonds State Park this weekend and saw an AS trailer at the Miners Campground just outside the park, and another AS on the road home--about mm50 on I-30 in Arkansas. They were headed toward Dallas. I was driving and flashed the lights and waved, and saw them wave back.

Hi, this fine jewel was spotted at Long Beach airport this Friday. If you have really good eyes, you can see New York license plate. "Blue Betty" from jetBlue airways.
