KOA and Airstreams

I've heard of Airstream's and KOA doing an advertising bit... and today a friend of mine sent me this - one of the week's USA Today's photos.

With rooms at Las Vegas' Circus Circus Hotel and Casino going for $25 a night earlier this week, forking over an extra 20 bucks to bunk in a trailer at the Circus Circus parking lot might feel like a gamble.
Then again, this isn't just any trailer: Under a new promotion with Kampgrounds of America, hipsters and nostalgia buffs can stay in a new, 27-foot Airstream — the aluminum-sheathed, aircraft-inspired travel trailer that's been a king of the American road since the 1930s and a favorite of such Hollywood stars as Matthew McConaughey.

Ten of Airstream's Flying Cloud models, which sleep up to four and retail for an average $53,000, are available at KOA's Circus Circus campground. Five more at KOA's location in Sugarloaf Key, Fla. (near Key West) rent for $170-$220 a night, and the program will be expanded to Bar Harbor, Maine, in May.
A few other places feature vintage Airstream accommodations, including the Shady Dell in Bisbee, Ariz., and the Belrepayre trailer park south of Toulouse, France.
