Anna-Marie White's insight:

Definitely if you're an Airstream fan, this is a MUST SEE! How to make your own Airstream, by Red Green!  It's none too pretty, but a real attention grabber. LOL. Somehow I just know someone is going to try this at home….

The Naked People - Aluminarium

The Naked People - Aluminarium | Airstream Digest | Scoop.it

SightingJust when we thought we were having a quiet week alone, the naked people showed up. It’s funny how many full-time RV’ers have monikers, usually it’s a blog name or username on social media. Well, since Kelly and Mike first appeared on our blog, a few of the Airstreamers we know now refer to them …

Anna-Marie White's insight:

Sighting of 'The Naked People'! One of the many fun and interesting monikers used by Full-Time Airstreamers, such as MaliMish, PlatinumAirship, Just5 MoreMinutes, Aluminarium and LongLongHoneymoon. We love the unique and diverse ways they celebrate the freedom of the LiveRiveted lifestyle!

Anna-Marie White's insight:

New little 5 min video showing how Airstreams are made. Rather basic and oversimplified but still really interesting. Shows the assembly right from the first sheet of aluminum. Oh, they make it all look sooooo easy.

2015 Airstream Classic Sneak Peek Luxury Travel Trailer For Sale

Preorder your 2015 Airstream Classic 30J at Colonial Airstream 800 265 9019 www.colonialairstream.com. Fall 2014 Delivery.
Anna-Marie White's insight:

This new 2015 Airstream Classic has some really new and intriguing features. The window blinds are completely redesigned; saving valuable visual space. A neat accordion slider on the Panos. AND, BIG Surprise! They have added a similar adjustable position bed to the one in my Airstream!  I have a TempurPedic Electric Adjustable bed with a wireless remote and massage. You do lose the usual storage compartment under the bed, but on mine there is still about 10" space. This bed frame likely adds a great deal of weight, so I would be interested to know if the frame and outriggers were beefed up to handle this. Can't wait to see this new model in person and check out that new kitchen!

Anna-Marie White's insight:

Food Truck conversions are often a tragic end for many lovely vintage Airstreams. Hacked into oblivion for the dull purpose of serving bad greasy food. But this Silver Bullet looks like its getting a lot of love so I l might have to let it slide this one time. Check out the recipe for 'Smack n Cheese Pizza'. Chipotle peppers and cheesy macaroni noodle Pizza. Mmmm….Ok…. I forgive you.

What's it like to live in Minnesota Airstream Park?

CLEAR LAKE – When Linda Agre had a bit of trouble hitching up for the season at Minnesota Airstream Park, she found herself surrounded by a dozen men offering to help.
Anna-Marie White's insight:

Linda who lost her husband recently, chose to continue her journey in her Airstream. What I liked most about the interview with her, was her comment "I never met an Airstreamer that I didn't like". This article touches on something quite amazing about the Airstream community; you're never alone.
