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.” These days, airplanes ferry us to the furthest reaches of the globe in mere hours while our social media technology allows us to travel from the comfort of our own homes. Why carry your home behind you when our lives are tucked so neatly into our phones, tablets and carry-ons? We're told to travel lighter, with less and love it. And we do.
In spite of it all, there is something so consummately classic and innately inspiring about these Airstreams. A relic of a past on the open road, where adventure was packing up your pals with all the comforts of home trailing (literally) right behind you. Yelp reviews, status updates & Smartphones were word-of-mouth, hand-written letters and film cameras. A full tank of gas meant moving forward with purpose towards a place you had never even seen in pictures. With great innovation comes complication and sometimes, stripping down the intricate vestiges of life is what real luxury is all about. So get out, gather and "glamp" as you opt for the open road in one or more of these 14 Airstreams hotels
You’ll find yourself so comfortably situated in these handcrafted airstream trailers, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to live on the go, in luxury, yo.
