Arriving from New York to Texas and all points in between, 20 Airstream trailers are taking over part of Seal Bay RV Park, the second rally of its kind, said owner Theresa Butcher.

“They came up last year and they’re spending 15 days on the Island going from Port Hardy to Victoria,” she added.

Butcher explained the park has a new group site area with a covered pavilion, which appeals to the Airstream rally.

“There are a variety (of models) coming up … some up to 40 to 44 feet. It’s not really that common, but we did have a Motor Coach rally earlier in the spring.”

Airstream trailers are recognized by their metallic silver colour and rounded shape, which dates back to the 1930s.

Although production of the trailers have dropped dramatically, Airstreamers — RVers who share a mutual love of their trailers and travel for rallies — are popular with various rallies happening all over North America.
