Retro COOL Airstream promotional build video

Postby Terra6 » Sun Sep 13, 2020 9:34 am

Just came across this interesting Airstream company promotional build film.
From elephants, bikini girl, to the racetrack, very interesting on how it's built and tested. 8)
Sit back, relax with a :beer: :wine: and enjoy the 20 min show which will transport you back to the late 60s :applause: :thumbsup:

That's fantastic! I love the part towards the end where they are out four wheeling with it in the desert behind a coupe with a Landau roof!

Reminds me of my childhood.
My dad bought one, and he spent years dreaming and working himself up to the purchase.
He'd take me long to the Airstream dealers on Saturday mornings while he kicked tires and talked with salesmen.

Back then they had 8mm film loops on little 10 inch rear projector sets playing these things all day.
I would sit in the waiting room watching these and drinking a Pepsi while dad shopped.

One sticks in my memory, a film loop for Reese weight distribution hitches. Back then the only front wheel drive cars were Oldsmobile Toronados and Cadillac El Dorados.
The film showed an Airstream hitched to a Toronado. They removed the rear tires and went bouncing over those same desert landscapes like the film above but the tow vehicle had no rear tires.

my grandfather drank the kool-aid in 1958 right after buying a 4wd Travelall

he built a rig on the roof of the Travelall that allowed him to load his Herters Goose n Duck Boat onto solo

he n the grandmother took each granddarling for a summer trip

and by "summer" i mean the whole summer !

my summer was 1961

WOW!

what a trip/summer

Pea Ridge BG(NW Ar) east and below the M n D Line ... the White n Buffao Rivers Hot Springs NP Nashville the Smokey Mtns Panama Beach New Orleans...

got home just in time to change cothes to go back to school

that sedan in the video wouldn't make it to many of the places we parked the trailer that summer and specially to many points where we launched that little boat which i have to this day

the grandparents got over 15 years of smiles from that trailer then Mom n Dad got it for another 15± years ... when they got more than original MSRP in trade for a used motor home

again WOW what GREAT REMEMBERIES that video brings back

MANY THANKS for the link
