Airstreams in the movies...

Leaving Normal is the one that sticks in my head the most. To think they built the house around the Airstream is totally awesome. All they need to do is pull it out of the "bay" and lock the house door and drive off is a thought to be thought about.

I noticed that trailer in Identity too Silvertwinkie. It was diffucult to see from the angles and the darkness, but I was thinkin it was an early '50s Cruiser or later 50's Overlander.
jpurdy; I think I saw the CSI episode flippin though the channels the other day...it was the only thing that held my attention in the show.

Airstreams in the Movies

I thought their was a thread for this but I couldn't find it. May have been lost in the crash.

Anyway The movie "Simone" was on staring Al Pachino on Starz last night. The majority of the movie had scene's where they were on the back lots at Hollywood. Every one of those had Airstreams in the back ground. All years and models. There were 50's, 60, 70's and 80's.
In one scene they had a mid 50's Bambi or Caravell in the back ground. One scene Winonna Ryder was complaining that her "Trailer" was not the "biggest". They has a pair of 34ft triaxle's parked end to end, one was her's. Her complaint was the hight. AL went on to explain about the "Airstream" having more air in the tires.

Movie was ok as well

We watched " Snow Dogs " last night and in the scenes in Alaska there was an Airstream Trailer that set in the middle of the background in a lot of the shots.

Tracey Ullman will be starring (as her nutty self) in an HBO show "In the Trailer Tales", Saturday, August 9th @ 8pm/7C. The ad in Paople magazine shows her perched in what looks like the front of the Shady Dell's vintage Airstream Clipper...

This 1949 Airstream is 21' long and was pictured in Bride's Magazine. It is our most photographed trailer. The ceiling at both ends is polished aluminum which reflects the colorful chenille bedspread. A photo album of vintage wedding pictures adds to the romantic ambience. Sleeps two -
Thanks guys for the tip...
I'll be sure to watch it on HBO..
ciao

Talking Making a documentary about trailerlife

Hi everyone, I' m Yoame, a mexican filmaker student. I'm researching for a documetary project called TRAILER LIFE which will be about the people who lives in that wonderful way. I feel lost in that topic because I've never been travelling and staying in trailer parks. I' m looking for some advises about places to visit ( I'm thinking on dessertic landscapes, - Texas, Arizona or California-) any place where I can find friendly peolple that wants to share experiences and let me interview them. Good and cheap trailer parks (costs and contact info will be great) I'm going on september to US, so I don't know if it is a right moment to get people in campgorunds. I think I will rent a car, but I don't know if it is the best idea ( Are ther any possibility of camping or staying in bungalows or hotels inside the trailer camps? Can I rent a motorhome for to weeks? How much is that?.
Thank's in advance to all of you that read that message.
Any info will be great.
Yoame

I remember a movie about '74-75 called Slither, about a ex con that looking for anothers ex-cons bank loot. are running from the bad guys in a A/S. The bad guys have a pair of black sportsman??? motorhomes. Come to find out that the bad guys were the cons partners and used the money for a failed kids summer camp and the only thing left is the two motorhomes that get trashed in the end.

I would love to see that one again.

Free tickets to Red Green's Possom Lodge

If you're looking for a fun get-away, you might want to consider heading to Toronto for a taping of the Red Green Show. The tickets are free, but you need to get them ahead of time.

It's a ton of fun - especially if you wear a plaid shirt - in which case they'll invite you to come up and be one of lodge members for the meeting they to conclude every episode.

If you get a taping that's before the Canadian Thanksgiving in October, you can camp (with water and electrical hookup) about 30 miles west of Toronto in Oakville at Bronte Creek Provincial Park.

Check the link below for info on tickets and times.

Update:

I spoke with the producer in NY this morning, they have rescheduled the segment to air this Friday the 22nd, at 5:30-6:00 MDT, check your local listings. Again it's supposed to be at the end of the the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw...kind of a "have a good weekend" segment...hopefully no more crisis will preempt us...

Saw another AS last night on the tube, but I will warn you (like I wish someone had warned me about Sordid lives) It was on a show called "Sealab 2021" on a special segment Cartoon network calls "Adult Swim" Erik Estrada had a tri axel AS with a dolphin butcher shop set up inside. Obviously not for everyone.
