I don't think square streams were fifth wheels, oops, I'm wrong.

Take a looky here:

Actually I wouldn't mind having one at all!



PS. Don't believe the claim that only 5 were made. It may have been in the low hundreds.


The number manufactured must be low. I've seen one advertised in past dozen years. Were it hundreds there would be threads on them, is my thinking.

Airstream skydeck MH

Have you folks seen this one? I was looking at going to Big Bend next week, and stumbled across this on a website...
http://nomadairstream.com/customize/airstream-skydeck/

By the way, any advise on Big Bend is appreciated...thinking 3 nights should do us, but not sure where to stay...also any advise about going into Mexico or visiting surrounding area is also appreciated...

We stay at the commercial RV park at Study (pronounced Stoo-dy) Butte. Full hookup and convenient to everything in the park, Terlingua, Lajitas, and the river road. The RV parks in the park are quite limited and far from everything.

You need to drive at least a few miles of the river road, FM 170, from Lajitas toward Presidio. The first few miles are awesome! We usually go all the way to Presidio for Mexican food and stop at historic Fort Leaton State Historic Site, near Presidio.

If the water is not too high, hike into Santa Eleana canyon. You can go about 1/4 mile into the canyon on foot.

Howard Hughes custom 5th wheel?

Been awhile since this post was active, but I was at CamperClinic yesterday in Buda, and spied this big Airstream 5th wheel in the back...sales guy said it used to belong to Howard Hughes, was lined with cedar....did not get a chance to look inside...He told me there were only 2 made of this model....note the double doors. Looks very heavy for sure...would love to see inside. May go back up there today.

It was built by aircraft industry Dee Howard Company, San Antonio.
Not for Hughes.
