Is the middle one being towed by a Wildcat or a Deuce and a Quarter?
Just saw a 25 or 27' towed by a silver Tundra DoubleCab heading east on Highway 82 in Greenwood- very rough toad under construction-

WOW, great question, I'd guess the latter, "Electra 225 Convertable" or as you point out "A Duce and A Quarter", but I can't really tell.

Several in Watchman campground at Zion this weekend. Saw a 16' from Calif and 19er but did not catch the plate on that one. Looked like a couple in South campground as well. Great fall weekend in Utah's red rock country.

I didn't look at the badges, I do know it is a 1970 per the owner.

The deuce and a quarter's are also called 4 holes referring to the number of "vent" holes in the fender. This one looks to have 4. The smaller Buick's had 3.

Also saw a 26' or less Streamline headed north on I-55 about an hour south of Memphis. I honked and waved as I passed.

An hour south of Memphis?
Batesville?
A wildcat is also a "4-hole" Buick. Generally all 4-hole Buicks were 8 cylinders and the 3-hole Buicks were 6 cylinders.
If it is a 1970, it is most likely an Electra 225. I think the Wildcat name was already gone by 1970.

Checked into Chula Vista RV resort in San Diego CA, and less than an hour a nice 25ish foot AS rolls by while we were eating our lunch.

Last night, pulled into the Patton Memorial Museum at Chiarico Summit, I 10 exit 173 in CA, and an Excella was leaving. This morning, while getting ready to leave the free dry camping behind the museum, saw an eastbound newer 25ft is so. Waved, but I doubt if they saw me at 200+ yds away....

Drove through Joshua Tree National Park, looking for a campsite, but all were gone by noon. However, saw three different Airstreams in different campgrounds, including a late 30s, or perhaps post war vintage unit, sporting a nice shine!

Eastbound on I 10 in Phoenix today and was passed by a great looking 73 Safari. I know it was a 73 Safari because the license plate said so....

Yesterday in Mesa/Phoenix, parked at the Riverview shopping center near Walmart a newer model 28ish with solar on roof. TV was a green Ford pick up with a motor bike in the bed. Safe travels.

Driving eastbound on I-10 in Mississippi saw a 25 or 27 ft international pulled by a white truck with a lady driver. I waved as I passed by.

Eastbound on AZ 80, entering Bisbee, was a towing business, and a nice, older AS in the back.

Are you staying in Bisbee? If so check out the Queen Mine RV park, (if you haven't already decided on it).

I spent most of my life within 50 miles of Bisbee, I really enjoy staying at the campground in old Bisbee.
