We recently returned from a two week tour of several NV and UT National Parks in our restored 1968
22ft Safari. We had been to a couple of them before, but not with the AS in tow.
From our home in southern CA we trekked up to Great Basin National Park near the NV-UT border, then crossed into UT and spent some very pleasant days at the campground of Great Basin National Park. This was the highlight of the trip as there was a noticeable absence of big crowds, yet the beauty of the area was remarkable.
We then turned to Arches National Park and then Canyonlands National Park, both not far from the desert community and off-road mecca of Moab. We began our return loop by a late-winter visit to Bryce Canyon National Park where the snow-covered “hoodoos” gave us a magnificent view much different than our previous visit in the summertime. The final destination on our trip was Zion National Park, the most visited of all these locations. We saw many Airstreams on the trip, most newer models, but several more vintage ones like ours. We had fun meeting other AS owners and chatting up the fun of life on the road with these silver homes on wheels. We saw all sorts of tow vehicles. Many 1500
pickups and a couple Suburban-size SUV’s pulling 25 and 27 foot models which surprised us a bit. Mostly 2500-3500 size pickups and one gorgeous combination of a 60’s Chrysler station wagon pulling a 24 foot 60’s vintage AS. A wonderful trip overall.
