It's Friday night & we just got back from seeing S1M0NE. There are about 1/2 dozen Airstreams in the movie used as trailers on a Hollywood set...pretty cool! Not to mention, the movie is cute, clever & entertaining...Enjoy!

Saw an Airstream in "Scary Movie 1" last night. Parked outside the High School with about 10 people living in it.

Last weeks episode of "Without a Trace" on CBS. Hostage thought to be held in an Airstream in the woods.

Last week I was watching a rerun of the Red Green Show on PBS and saw old Red trying to build an Airstream Trailer on his "Handyman's Corner" segment. He started out standing in front of a great looking A/S trailer and talking about how it was the Cadillac of trailers. Lamenting about how he could not afford such a fine trailer, he said there was no reason why he couldn't build one using the handman's secret weapon: Duct Tape! Red began by"borrowing" an aluminum fishing boat still on it's trailer. After that he assembled a collection of old washer, oven, and dryer doors, and duct taped them around the top perimeter of the boat. Realizing how great that looked, he topped that off with another boat turned up-side-down. After suveying his handy work, Red realized he forgot to install a door. No problem, he just opened a dryer door and crawled in. Once inside, he stuck his head back out and shouted: "Remember, If women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy". Wouldn't Red Green would make the perfect addition to this forum? Now where's my silver duct tape?

I love it when Red recites the man's prayer:

I'm a man
But I can change
If I have to
I guess

In the movie TOOTHLESS...

I've often wondered what the actors used off-screen to change clothes in if all of the Airstreams are on the set

new movie sighting...

just saw the movie "Snow Dogs" over the weekend (it was on cable), and there is an early 70's AS in several seens, in the background. not sure exactly the year and model, but it looks just like mine, only bigger....probably an Overlander. I was able to glimpse that it has the same tail lights (round lights, in a rectangular housing) as my 73.

anyway...hadn't seen this movie mentioned before when this subject came up.....

Snow Dogs

I think it is shorter than an Overlander, possibly a Tradewind. I think the Eskimo guy was living in it. I was looking for it as if it would be a glancing shot but it is in several scenes for a good bit of time each. I couldn't help but wonder how much propane that thing was going thru in a week.
