Small Airstreams spotted...toy thread

All of these Airstream models are located on my model train layout. I have many more vintage trailer "toys," but have not found them a home on the layout yet.

What strange and unusual Airstream toys have you found?

Here is a vintage toy trailer/car we saw on a group train display in the Adirondacks last Summer on vacation. I am not sure if it is supposed to be an Airstream...but it is shiny silver and has curves in all the right places:

Picked this up several years ago at a train show, you might be able to find one online if interested.

I have seen this Lionel accessory and actually looked at them when they were new. Having grown up in Airstreams, it was appealing, but I never thought I would actually own an Airstream myself, so I passed on it. Besides- I did not like how the trailer wheels and tires look like tractor trailer wheels- so large and burly. However, I have been looking for one for some time to add to my collection. They don't come up for sale very often...and when they do, they command a hefty price. I guess it is kind of like Disney train items...they draw fierce collecting competition from two different and passionate groups.

"I guess it is kind of like Disney train items...they draw fierce collecting competition from two different and passionate groups."

I made fun when the DW bought a Disney 8773 15 car boxed set at a show years ago, she continued getting every Lionel Disney she could, I never laughed at her choices again.

As in the 1957 "Girl's Set" she got me for Christmas.

Novelty=$$$$$$
