This is an example of the high quality content to be found here on the forum. One of the best pictures ever posted. Dennis, could we put this one into the Cub pictures rotation on the home page?

Also, Bigdog, please post the one with the "deer in the headlights look". I think it might be even better :roll: :roll: I have printed out this one to send to my sister back in Belleville. She has wanted to see the Bigdog for a long time now, so this is her chance.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks

Mike

BW,

I would just love to have one of them Airstreams, but even one 40 years old brings some big bucks. This one here really don't look to bad from the outside, but seeing the sink being away from the wall, makes me wonder how much structural damage has been done.

I really don't know why I even like em, I guess because they are just different from everything else. I bet the aerodynamics on one going down the road would nice to pull too.

Unless I can buy one as cheap as I did my 1976, 28 foot Prowler, I'll just have to be happy with it. Main thing is, it has comfortable beds and A/C.

YEAH I know, I'm just a sissy camping guy, LOL!

I thought they quit making those Airstream trailers but I guess not being this one says its a 2005 model with no miles. I had a 1964 22-foot Airstream that I sold for $500 a couple years ago.

Looking the pictures over I don't think there is much structural damge to worry about. The description said it rolled over on left side, and that sink/stove assembly appears to be on right. I think the weigth just pulled it loose from the mounts. Camper trailers don't have to pass rollover tests like cars.

There is something special about an Airstream!
I have an older truck camper (actually 2, know anybody that wants a free one??) that I bought last year. Nice to have a potti and a shower (still haven't used that yet). They made a similar looking truck camper called an Avon I believe. Hard to find and big money.
One of these days I want to go to NB/PEI with the camper and visit Rudi. They say summer is coming, but I have a pile of snow outside!

Nice camper! And a fine looking lab too.

That is the same company that made the truck camper..... found a couple of folks that restored some old ones:

I really do like the aero look of the aluminum campers.
