Airstream travel trailers have been an iconic sight on the highways of America and the world since production began in 1931. A young and avid camper, named Wally Byam, created the Airstream idea. Wally had a passion for the outdoors and the desire to make the camping experience as comfortable as possible so everyone could enjoy the great outdoors. Wally eventually published a DIY booklet that was so popular his campers went into full production.
In this article, I'll break down the pros and cons of living in one of these classic campers.
So much quality goes into the Airstream product that it is difficult to complain about that. The long-lasting materials and the attention to detail is what has kept so many Airstreams on the road for so long. It is estimated that 70 percent of all Airstreams produced are still in operation today. Either on the road or as full time homes, shops and food vendors.
So let me first share with you a few of the pros that I have discovered by having lived in my Airstream travel trailer.
I love the simple life the Airstream offers, however, there are some downsides to this way of living. Here are just a few to consider.
The Airstream has seen a dramatic surge in popularity over recent years. Bloggers, adventurers, and others have embarked on the ever-increasing work/travel experience. Many people have discovered the older campers and given them new life.
You can even rent a classic Airstream on several of the popular rental property sites. Customization by talented individuals and even renovation companies have added to the resurgence of this iconic travel trailer.
Having remodeled two Airstreams myself, with the help of some friends and relatives, I have grown to appreciate the timeless character and unbeatable quality. For me, the pros far outweigh the cons. But of course, the Airstream way of life may not be for everyone.
