Driving north on rt. 89 in the town of Romulus (my hometown) and I see a single axle 60's airstream pulled by a ford truck. Made my day!

Looking forlorn

Airstream Jail???

Saw this one behind the fence in Spokane while taking a shortcut to the Spokane Indians game the other day.

I want to add a couple of comments here, and I am not trying to mean or short or anything, but here it goes;
1) Waving at an AS- I think everybody is too hung up on this waving thing, first at that kind of distance who in the world can see something 6-8 inches in size, and given the fact that you are passing each other at 60-65 mph you only have a few seconds to respond and if the person happens to site seeing then they are most likely not going to see ya until the last second anyways. I ride a motorcycle and we have the low wave, and I dont wait to see if they wave at me first because maybe thier attention is on something, I just wave anyways if I see them comming regardless if they wave or not. I think it is called curtesy.
2) lost m train of thought, will edit this when it comes to mind.

We in the old, air-cooled Volkswagen fraternity wave to each other as we pass and we do see each other wave. No reason for it to be any different when pulling an Airstream. Of course it's a rare thing for an old VW to be travelling 65 miles per hour.

The wife and I always make a point of flashing lights and waving.
It makes us feel good to be part of such a wonderful fraternity.
If the oncoming people see us and return the favor, it makes it even better, since we get to share our good karma – thanks – potato – whatever!

Do you flash lights and wave even if you are not towing? I usually don't because I just feel silly and look strange

long long trailer!

My sister and brother in law, who fulltime at Paradise Valley at Roaring River State Park, reported an over-30' highly polished Airstream moving into their campground this week, towed by a Dodge truck. They haven't met the owners yet.

I've only seen one coming at us on a secondary road which was on Rt. 2 up in NW MA..a really nice scenic route. I gave them a thumbs up and we got a wave back...we were not towing. I saw a lot on the MA pike last year, almost one everytime we were on it but found it hard to make contact....count so far this year is at "0"...plenty of white boxes though.

Spotted newer body style Toyota Tundra pulling newer AS I-40 west of Nashville on the east bound side 6/27. Pulled over for the night at Good Sams Campground in East Memphis and saw vintage 13 panel Avion, looked like it hadnt moved for some time and also 76 model Excella, met the owner who's replacing the cabinets as I type.

We were sitting in the Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk Ohio , Sunday at about 16:00, watching the NHRA race. Ohio 20 can be seen from the stands. Now I'm guessing at the ages here, I haven't nearly the expertise of many of the contributers to the Forums, what looked to be a 60 's 16-17 ft Bambi. then about 5 minutes later a 19-20 footer being pulled by a brilliant yellow suburban rolled by. ps, we were cold and wet but the drags were great!

Saw a 23-25' late model behind a Super Duty Ford pulling out of a gas station yesterday on SC-1 just south of I-26 yesterday in West Columbia.

2 in one day!

There was an Airstream parked in a yard on Missouri 60 aout 8 miles or so west of Marionville, Missouri, today,and further west at Pine Trails RV park there is an Airstream that looks as if it is being used as an office, and permanently parked there. Couldn't get the driver to stop so I could take a picture but next time we go by there I will.
