Recreational vehicles come in all sorts of sizes and shapes, but of all the RV’s out there, none is as easily recognizable as the Airstream. Always metallic silver, an Airstream looks a lot like an airplane without wings.

Airstream lovers from across the country are converging on Eaton Rapids for a weekend gathering called Urban Air. Main Street will be filled with Airstreams, and visitors will be able to check them out and meet their owners.
