On my way home from work yesterday, I spotted what appeared to be a mid '80s vintage AS parked at the local Camping World. Looked to be in for service. Only got a quick glance of it from the Interstate. There's also a later model AS parked in the RV storage lot on the opposite side of the freeway that appeared sometime in the last month or so.

Just not Right!

My neighbors down the street have a 5 panel late 1950's Airstream parked in their yard that they are using for a storage shed......and they won't sell it....not even if someone buys them a nice big storage shed to repace it.....That's just not RIGHT!!!!

Spotted in Irmo

Hi Journalist!

This is my very first post.
This is also my first search ... for my very first A/S. I've just begun going thru ads on ebay, checking classifieds in the State (nothing), in the Trader (2 - and both 2Big) and now found this forum .... and You!

Any tips on where to look, what to look for -and how to know what I see when I find it - would be greatly appreciated!

Once I find something, if it's close to home, would you mind helping out with an inspection?

Welcome to the forums sariahjoy. I'm sure that you will be able to get answers to any questions you might have...just use the search button on the blue bar above...most anything you could ask has already been asked. And if it hasn't, ask away and someone will surely respond.

Good luck with your search. The more you read on this forum, the more it will all make sense and the more you will be confident in your search. I'm sure someone would be glad to help with an inspection; there is a thread entitled, "so, you want to buy an Airstream three states away," or something like that that will help you find someone to help.

Again, welcome and good hunting.

Hi Sarajoy!

Welcome to the forum – these people are incredibly helpful – my only advice is to go slow and get something you will be happy with.


I used to live near Irmo – just down the road from Sheely’s BBQ – some of the best I ever had!

Hi Tarheel,

I wonder if my very first A/S is hiding up north near you?

If you see a 17' - 22 ' '60 to early '80 with good skin and a for sale sign - drop me a line, please!

John actually got to meet a couple today pulling a 70's Airstream at Mcdonalds off I-40 in Kingston Tn. We spotted them at the gas station and did a quick once around to get a look. We pulled into McDonalds to get some lunch. Mcd's ask us to pull up and wait for fries. Looked up, and there was the Airstream pulling in! John went in and talk to them. Learned they were from Williamson Tn headed to Maryland. They have had the AS for 10yrs. They hadnt heard of the forums, but said they were gonna check it out!
How cool!!

Pescadero

Or in one of the coastal access areas somewhere nearby on Highway 1 in Northern CA, today. It looked like a recent model of a CCD, towed by a blue truck. Bigger than a Bambi, not sure of the length...
