Rowley MA vintage trailer

I have a real funny story. My neighbor called me the other day to let me know she spotted an old Airstream in the woods in Rowley, MA. After getting directions to the location, we rode over to Rowley to check the trailer out. There she was, sitting in what looked like a dead-end dirt driveway next to a heavily wooded area. We drove down the dirt road and around the bend and there was a house up on the hill. We went up to the house to see if anyone was home, but there were no signs of life. We were chuckling as we headed home because the way the owner had cinched the awning arms with velcro looked a lot like the way Chuck cinches his awning arms on his trailer. Well, we got home and looked up the WBCCI numbers and found who the trailer belonged to. Our one and only Chuck from the forum! Now I know where you live Chuck!

When was this???

we've been here all day...were there no cars in the driveway when you came?

you guys are nuts!!!


So...whatdya think? better than most campgrounds, eh?

you should experience backing a trailer around those curves and up the hill. fun, fun, fun.... thats where I usually keep it for the summer, though...easy access to hookups and so forth. down along the driveway is for winter parking.

next time, come in for a beverage.

Now that I know Chuck doesn't notice people driving up his driveway and checking out his Airstream, I may come by with my hitch ....

BTW, nice new avatar Yukionna! That '53 really caught your eye, didn't it?

Yes, there was one car but we didn't recognize it. Now, if we had seen your tow vehicle we would have recognized THAT!

I went out to do an errand around that time (buying grease for my wheel bearings, no less ), but Diane was out in the yard doing some gardening. either that, or sitting at the 'puter right next to the back door. did you drive up?? can't believe you didn'nt see her. (Jack was napping).

Yes, it was yesterday (Saturday). We were on our way home from looking at motorcycles at Cycles 128 in Beverly. We did drive all the way up your driveway, but didn't recognize the car. I personally would have gotten out to knock on the door, but my cautious other half was nervous and wanted to leave.

Anyway, Diane can't believe she didn't hear you. must have been some weird timing, or something.
