You may have to go back a little further.
September, 1958, National Geographic Magazine, among a few from that era~
Oops, that's an ad` There was a travelog in the 50's in the magazine..You might look thru that era~
Here we go~! taken from : www.airstream.net (another airstream website).

National Geographic June 1957 Issue by Norma Miller and Ardean R. Miller III. This article titled Through Europe by Trailer Caravan has a map and 29 illustrations documenting an Airstream Caravan through Europe led by Wally Byam. Extensive pictures of Airstream travels in Europe.
I'll betcha there's more`!

I can't give you the precise references, but the information would be easily accessed at your local public library. Ask for The Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature for the years that you are interested in checking. Then it is a simple process of just looking up "Airstream", and/or "Recreational Vehicles". I suspect that there would be more articles in the 1950s, but I do believe that there were at least a few in the 1960s.

Good luck with your search!
