Noticing Airstreams everywhere

I saw them earlier of course but did not notice them. Now I do, several weeks after I got mine. There is one just a few miles from my place, a 25' I am not sure if it is a small park or a private residence. Today just saw another 25' at a construction site. You do seem them occasionally if you pay attention. They have become an integral part of the culture.

I saw two at Laguna Seca Raceway yesterday. One 34-foot triple-axle Excella parked in the pits near the Skip Barber school, and a 1960s Overlander parked in the campground above Turn 5.

The reports of Airstream invisibility have been greatly exagerrated.

Airstream in TV AD

There is an Airstream bieng used in an ad for the Chevrolet Silverado. The spot shows the Airstream being pulled by the Silverado, but you have to look quick.

I saw a 28' yesterday ... didn't notice what the towing vehicle was. Lots of 5th wheels being pulled by 3/4 to 1 ton vehicles with 8-ft beds and extended cabs.

noticing airstreams everywhere

Just saw one in my neighborhood the other day. Tried to catch up from behind and as it turned looked like a Sovereign. Also the movie "Simone" has several scenes with a movie lot with Airstreams. The May/June edition of AARP has an as from Mastercard that uses an Airstream as well.

Hey, I was at the Chevy dealer the other day and found that in the Suburban literature, they show it pulling and Airstream.

Yes, they are real close to you for sale except when you are looking for one. Then you will end up driving 900 miles to get one. Once you get one, they are back to being for sale within 50 miles.

An part of the background too. After a while, you just don't notice them...... We'd "bump" into them everyday if we were not careful.

Femuse, do you folks decide to "get away for the weekend" by moving into a different A/S?

We never get away. We do not work enough to be able to afford to go on vacation. The rare times we work, it's always on the weekend. We sometimes envy "normal" people. Not, often though.
