I would like to know how many AIrstreams you have owned in your life? You personally, not your family.

Four have become a part of my life. One has been sold and three different characters remain:

1948 16' Wee Wind in excellent original condition, "Ruby"
1951 18' Clipper, an empty shell to be filled with vintage dreams
1957 22' Flying Cloud (sold)
1964 19' Globe Trotter, a practical fully functional vintage trailer.

I have happily reached the stage in life where I can appreciate numerous old Airstreams without owning them, a nice place to be.

Only a few people have answered this poll. I know that most people own only 1 Airstream at a time, but really would like to know what percentage of you folks do own more than one.

Prob since this thread is similar to another thread you started. Maybe these should be merged?

Moderators need to do that. Send one a PM (private message) and they should be able to do it.

I have owned 7 ranging from 1975 to my current 1991 and the lengths have varied from 29ft to my current 34ft. I have been in the WBCCI since 1989 and was one of the youngest members to join at the age of 18 at that time.I have owned more Airstreams than most people who have been in the club 30 years but I have enjoyed it alot and hope to have lots of more fun.Davis

I have been called an inveterate pack rat by many in my family as I have great difficulty in parting with possessions. My Airstream inventory stands at two - - the '64 Overlander International that friends' of my family purchased new and in which I went on my first camping trip when the trailer was new and I was five (I became its third/fourth owner in 1995) through an odd quirk of fate. In 2002, the '78 Argosy Minuet 6.0 Metre followed me home. The Airstreams join a collection that includes all but six of the 13 autos that I have owned.

Interesting that most of the folks who responded to the poll only have one, but (except now for me) all who responded are serial streamers!

We have only one. Between plumbing woes and frame concerns (and ours is in pretty good shape), that's plenty for us right now...though I do get a bit wistful when really gorgeous '50s models go for sale. Then I think of our to-do list and quickly lose that feeling! Nope, I'm convinced that it's much more fun getting our friends to acquire those prospective projects!!!

Hi,
We have the 1972 Argosy (20ft) and have been bouncing back and forth about maybe obtaining another one.

How many Airstreams

A 2003 Bambi and now a 2005 Safari SS... Within 6 months... I have been tent camping for years got the Bambi and loved it but needed just a little more space.
