What about the president of Mexico in 1937 or Halle Salasi in 1959?

Another live one . . .

Per Larry Huttle at the 2006 Hobo Rally in Blythe, CA, Julia Roberts bought an Airstream (model/length not specified) & her TV is a Hummer

Haile Selassie never received an Airstream. I don't know why, it just never came to pass.

William Holden

One of the African Caravanners left from Kenya. William Holden had his tree-top bush hotel. Bill or his agent bought the Airstream from the Caravanner.

Yeah, and I've got Leonardo da Vinci's drawings of his Airstream concept.

I just watched the full length 16mm Cape town to Ciaro, and Pee Wee, you have my total respect. Seeing you build roads and cross those river... (insert big bow here). To meet Halle Salasi, what an honor that must have been. People worship him as a god. I had thought he requested one, must have been wrong.

Apparently this probably came from a discussion between Wally and Haile Selassie. That a second gold trailer was to be produced. For whatever reason it never happened. My best guess is when Wally got back to the United States, his illness kicked in.

What a wonderful op for advertising. Handing the keys to the Lion of Judah in front of his spanking brand new Gold Airstream. It would have been nice, but it never came to fruition.

Dale,
It was terrific meeting you, and hearing your extraordinary tales of adventure at the International.

I am so flattered knowing that you own one of my Tee shirt.

Michael

I have that shirt too... it was given to me by Mistral Blue and is my very favorite. I only wear it on special occasions.

Vincent Price owned a trailer similar to an Airstream; it was an SOB though. He bought it because he loved to cook and it had a kitchen in it and he would tow it up in the mountains or out to the beach and invite all of his Hollywood friends out to have gourmet picnics he would prepare on the stove and in the oven for them. I don't think he ever actually spent the night in it though.

I've got a picture of what is supposed to be Howard Hughes' Trailer. I looks like it could be a custom airstream, but he could well have had his own airplane company build it.
