Shelby, NC, recently held an Airstream rally. Dozens of those sleek silver travel trailers pulled into town and parked around the court square, and what a good time it was!
the good time of year to go camping or air streaming tonight we find our tar heel traveler west in Cleveland County scott mason takes us to an airstream rally in Shelby uptown Shelby and there is silver in the air. The air streams are coming. Oh you can do better than that. Mm hmm. Welcome back. This is our second year here and we love Shelby Shelby an airstream rally North Lafayette and vintage 72. I love these airstreams. They are so neat and this is something that is so great for our town. It’s pretty cool that they came so we could check them out. Wasn’t it? Ha ha were so excited and so are the air streamers him to along for the ride. Go dog go and he is mr joe popular. That one says honey bunny And we have always called each other for some reason honey bunny. The honey bunnies from wayne county cuddled in a 25 footer and we’re in our own little world with their pink flamingo most of the time. If you see an airstream somewhere you’re going to see a flamingo and we love it And we’ve been across the United States and back. We’ve been from florida to maine, we spent last winter in texas, you know its aerodynamics. The wind does not affect them nearly as much because of the around us because they are aerodynamically designed for the wind to pass like a wing of an airplane. What do you think it would be like inside an airstream Air you think there’s air in there. Well, shall we come in. This one’s at 2018, 30 ft. Is it comfortable sleeping quarters? It is very, you have the old with the new Chinese 72. Good as new, fully refurbished. It’s a traveling machine. We’re on the road about 50% of the year. Thank you. Wally Byam of Oregon. The airstream inventor. He built his first travel trailer in 1929 and they eventually moved down the road like a stream of air now in uptown Shelby. The airstreams lining this beautiful court square, but they’re from all around. These are not local and it’s just a great energy in our community. A little embarrassing when I look around ours is the smallest one here, cute and comfy. They’re amazing. I wish I had one. What color are the airstreams? They are silver, A silver stream, iconic lee american. Mhm. I ain’t rich, but Lord, I’m free. I’m a real over morning. I’m a real close where I’ll be. Yeah, there are airstream clubs across the country and a number of airstream rallies each year. Across north Carolina
