The new movie Surviving Christmas has an Airstream in it. I saw the trailer (movie clip and Airstream) on TV earlier. Their website has the clip also.

Page of movie trailers...

Scroll down to the bottom of the page. The first clip.

We just got back from watching the movie and it had a nice scene with an older A/S in it. My wife and I both just kind of poked at each other when it came on!

Airstream - Wolfman Flick

I have no idea what era the movie was from, but it didn't seem that old.

I saw 8 Legged freaks. Poor movie and a waste of a good Airstream.

It was Mariel Hemingway, and the movie was called "Bad Moon."

It was REALLY FUN to watch on Hallowe'en.. in fact, I purchased a copy for my own wonderful personal library.

I have a HUGE collection of vampire 'B" movies.. had to let a Werewolf in, too :-)

I highly recommend it.. it was better than it sounds ;-)

Had a couple of Airstreams in it.
Was this a Stephen king knock-off about a bunch of possessed trucks taking over a truckstop??

I thought that was "Maximum Overdrive" with Emilio Estevez. A real waste of time. I've seen it 2 or 3 times...

That was the original, the knockoff was "trucks". The original was bad, but at least it had Stephen King going for it.

Hi All!

Overhere in Germany they are showing a serie call "Promised Land" on TV. Actually they show it for the 120.612 time or so, but it is still great for Airstreamers (or future Airstreamers like me... ).

The whole story is about a familiy living in an Airstream and touring the country. It played from 1996 to 1999. One of the actors was Gerald McRaney as Russell Greene.

"Poor White Trash" Movie w/ Airstream?

Just got back from the video store and in their "used tapes for sale" section they had a movie called "Poor White Trash". Anyway, on the cover of the box was a picture that included a '60's Airstream. The writeup on the box never mentioned Airstream by name, but did mention a trailer full of cash. The story is something like a family turning to crime so that their child can get out of the trailer park and into college. Anyone seen it? I've gotta say I was not overly impressed by what I saw on the package.

EDIT - This movie is $59.98 on Amzon.com! I found a picture of the box on the web to post here:

From Soup to Airstreams

Campbell's Soups has a new commercial with a Vintage Airstream in the background. Quite a few shots of it. Made me want soup and sandwich... out in my trailer.

Joe, the reason the movie is so expensive, it probably was released beforeit was common to sell VHS movies at your local Wal-Mart, or Kmart, with the resulting economies of scale. As more were released that way, the prices came down. I would be willing to bet this one has a release date in the mid 80's or earlier.
