The Airstream Book of World Records

The Airstream Book of World Records. Does this have a familiar ring? "The Guinness Book of World Records". Here is the beginning of a new section. Do you know who has the largest collection of Airstreams? Do you know who owns the oldest Airstream? What was the longest Airstream Caravan in history. Who was the designer of the first Airstream? How about some fun ones. Who created the "Most Interesting" Airstream spin off ever. There is one in the making right know. " Baja Reincarnation" They are going for the most replys on an Airstream Caravan ever. Can you help us make this record.
I know, but do you what Airstream restoration thread has the most hits ever. OK lets get this thread started.
Don

The Airstream Book of World Records

I am not certain, but Dr. Holman's plan-built "Airstream" could probably hold records, including:
  • The Airstream with the longest continual single family ownership.
  • The oldest surviving Wally Byam trailer built from plans.

Most people on roof, in shower, most attending orgy, most beer bottles in refrigerator, most dogs inside, most bears attacking, most televisions, most tequila drinkers collapsed on floor, highest flood levels (Ga. trailers ineligible), most sticks with rope attached.

Oh, Bob, is that an Auburn with the Bowlus?
