57 Aluminum Silver Colored Trailers passed through Rainier Oregon headed on their way to the World's Fair in Seattle Washington . I seen these trailers going over the now re-named Lewis and Clark Bridge on the Columbia River and just recently found this photo of the event that I seen as a young man in person . The Travlelers pulled over on I-5 on their way..and some newspaper took this photo,,,, Have you ever seen so many air streams in a row?

There's a guy down the street from me that owns two of them. They're covered with tarps. I don't think they've moved for years. frown

Airstreams have a cult following. If they could ever figure out a slide out option they might have a winner.

Many years ago there was a Airstream convention that held its gathering at our small town County Fairgrounds. The secure parking lot had Airstreams in every nook and cranny for a full week. Definitely a cult following.

Airstream With Slide Out [airstream.com]

They used to. Low demand put an end to it. They are already pricey without a slide out.

I've seen an Airstream trailer converted into a motorhome, using an Oldsmobile Toronado front wheel drive powertrain. Odd-looking thing! "Where's the tow vehicle"?
