English Lord owns an Airstream

My 76 Tradewind is parked at Pinewoods an idyllic site on England’s North Norfolk coast. The site is owned by Thomas Viscount Coke The Earl of Leicester. He lives at Holkom Hall a fantastic English stately home built in 1700.
This year his wife bought him an Airstream for his 50th birthday and he exhibits it in the museum at Holkham.
Take a look at the website Holkham Hall and Estate - North Norfolk, England.
Next time I am in Holkham Hall I’ll photograph the AS and post it on the forum.

Nice little place.
What vintage is the Airstream, if you know?

Forgive me but whats the pecking order? I know a Duke is pretty important but whats a viscount vs earl vs count etc. Can you be a Lord without being an Earl or whatever? Just curious how it works.

My mistake The old Earl of Liecester is still alive
Viscount Coke is his son and will become the Earl when his dad dies

Nice little pad to come home to after a weekend of caravaning with the locals. I like the mobile lawn mowers - I could use a few of them out back. It's sad to know that someone with a pad like this fellow has had to wait till he was fifty before getting his first Airstream but at least he's caught on now. My gosh, next thing you know he'll want to put a caravan camp ground on the property so he won't have to tow so far. When that happens let us know and maybe we could have a Forums Rally there .

Neat place, thanks for passing that on. It will be interesting to see what they ended up with for a trailer. Hey, Soldier Medic - didn't one of your trailers head that way? Any one else from the Forums sell a trailer across the pond without realizing it was about to become royal property?

Maybe WE could have a Forums Rally there? UK Airstreamers, let's get together and pitch the viscount for a few pitches! Lol! Finn, get up there and have a word! btw, they say an englishman's home is his castle, I feel like a King in my Airstream!
Marc

Viscount Coke? He'd be the real thing then?
