Have you all seen the video game commercial for a Playstation game that shows the kids using a "magnet" device as a weapon to attract metal objects?
An Airstream Trailer comes rolling down towards them and ends up righ side up in front of them. Saw it last night on VH-1 or some music network.

Funny, I guess?

Not a movie...but a commercial!

Check this out (if you can), be sure to have your sound turned up:

Cable Channel Commercial

This is a cable TV commercial that our trailer is in. You will need Windows Media Player to view it and it's only going to be available at this location for a couple of days.

Enjoy!

Shari

What a riot!!!! Classic!! took me a minute to figure out exactly what it was that they were selling. Your camper was the only giveaway!!! to bad it was only in the shot for a second.

My boss wants to know how much they paid you for that was that you doing the rockin', or was that a stunt-double?

Shari --

But WHAT the heck did this ACTION do to your axles?? Did you have any LP appliances running? What tire pressure did you use? Whew -- my swivel chair here at the computer is ruined. We'll have to ask Inland Andy's advice

Don't worry...No Airstreams were endangered in anyway during the filming of this commercial...P.E.T.A.* would be proud!

I know the movie "Thinner" used an Argosy 24' trailer in several scenes.

Honest, I did see your wheels disappear up into the wheel wells and was sure you'd need a new Dura Torque. At least it's a single...

Didn't an Airstream get shot up in the first Lara Croft Tomb Raider ?

Not actually built by AS

But it is aluminum, my son thinks the rocket launcher would be handy in traffic.

Swordfish

The John Travolta movie, "Swordfish", features a 34' Airstream trailer in the last 5 minutes of the movie.

here in the netherlands we had a TV program
" all you need is love"
they used an vintage airstream to tour around and used it as a mobile studio for interviews
that was about 4 years ago I think even now when people see my airstream they are saying He that is robert den brink
" that was the name of the gut presenting the program"

The RV? Used in Damnation Ally is custom built by Barris, If I remember right. Called the Landmaster. Also used in a Quiet Riot music video.
