In 1931, Airstream began with Wally Byam's dream: to build a travel trailer that would move like a stream of air, be light enough to be towed by a car and create first-class accommodations anywhere. If you've ever been traveling down the highway on the way to vacation and got a glimpse of an Airstream, you were probably wishing you had one. Its smooth, silver body gleaming in the sunlight reflects all the privacy of home the owners will have once they get to their destination.
Every inch of an Airstream has a function. Airstream is the most thoroughly tested brand in trailer history. Its engineering is the culmination of over 80 years of experience plus millions of miles on roads throughout the world.
Features and Benefits of Buying an Airstream
Buying an Airstream is the first step in gaining some independence on your vacation. They stand out with their distinctive polished aluminum coach and rounded body. The look is reminiscent of an older era with the body shape dating back to the 1930s.
However, once you step inside the trailer, you'll realize it's not fashioned in an older style on the interior. The luxurious décor brings modern appeal to the appearance. With models ranging from the space-saving, single-axel Bambi that can be towed by an SUV, all the way up to the spacious 33' Classic model designed for longer trips or full-time living, there is truly an Airstream for every individual.
Technology is also an important part of a new Airstream experience. You will be able to access features such as the lights, thermostat, and awning all with the click of your smartphone. In addition, enjoy heated shower floors and towel bars to keep you cozy when you get out of the shower.
Longevity & Quality
The iconic Airstream has been around for decades proving that it's a quality trailer that is beloved by many. Their aerodynamic shape actually helps save you money on gas versus other trailers on the market. And when buying a new Airstream, you are investing in a travel trailer that holds its value well. The Airstreams do not depreciate as other vehicles do, because they are well known for their longevity and premium materials.
However, for those considering purchasing a used Airstream, you will find that the quality of these is unmatched, which means that even a used one will be in great shape. The problem is they are sometimes hard to find because people hold on to them once they get them. The other issue is the price is not greatly reduced on the used trailer because the depreciation factor is just not there with these beauties. But you will have some savings.
