Pro-flamingo? Why or why not?

Personally, I think a flamingo in the AS front yard says "I am fabulous and know how to laugh at myself." Ditto for the fake flowers between the propane tanks.

Do you have flamingos that travel with your trailer? How many? Why?

Feel free to post your other fabulous outdoor decor if flamingos aren't your bird.

We travel with two PF's. Seeing them out there just makes me smile. We also have four more at home in case ours decide to migrate.

Did you hear about the family of pink flamingoes that saved and saved so they could buy a plastic Airstream for their front yard?

We have two battery lighted ones, attention getters at night.
If camping together, my sister-in-law has been known to steal them from our camp and place them in front of her Safari.....

Pink flamingos rule! A must have for true vintage/classic Airstreamers.
Three vintage lawn ornaments, 2 sets of "flamingos on ice" bedding, flamingo shower curtain and matching hooks, flamingo bar sign etc. etc. etc. Never too much.

Hey, FRYZOWT, been a while, glad to talk again.

WOW! Is that linoleum? Do you take it along instead of the typical carpet stuff? I love it!

One caution. The blow up flamingos. The tube to blow them up can sometimes be in what some might consider an "awkward" position.
Remember, they put the blow up tube in a spot where it's not typically visible.......

I'm not sure what the liability would be if you are camped in a location where there are folks with weak hearts but it could get messy.

Linoleum would be to kool, but it is a woven mat. We found it at an RV show years ago. It is still in great shape. I have not found another that well fabricated (yet)

We typically have several generations of Flamingos, from Egg, baby (beanie) to a toddler then adolescent to adult to one we call Skelator. On a special occasion we brig out the 6' inflatable, we affectionately call Pre Historic Flamingo's

Unhappy Can't Use Flamingos!

We've found that we CAN'T use flamingos in front of our Airstream. It's too hard driving them into the pavement at Wall-Mart!

Flamingos are always at work guarding the trailer day or night.

Rivet Absolutely!

My, then, girlfriend gave me a flamingo lamp for Christmas in 2001. I still remember walking through the heightened security at Ragan International in DC with a flamingo head sticking out the back top of my soft briefcase. I just kept a straight face, very Bond, James Bond.
