Airstream is an American brand of caravans which are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded and polished aluminium coachwork. This body shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by Hawley Bowlus. Airstream trailers and recreational vehicles are manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio. The company, now a division of Thor Industries, employs more than 800 people, and is the oldest in the industry. Airstreamers are a group who share a community spirit because of their common love of the trailers. In the early 1950s, Airstream company founder Wally Byam began leading groups of owners on travels to many parts of the world, where the towed trailers were quite a remarkable sight. Photos taken of the trailers in front of many famous tourist sites were common. This promoted a mystique which surrounded Airstreams and persists to this day.

This magnificent Airstream Colorado is in exceptional condition having been used very little by its previous keepers. This is a fully equipped four berth caravan that offers as much as possible in terms of creature comforts. There is a fixed island double bed, Alde heating and a 190 litre fridge/freezer. A feature of Airstreams is the riveted aluminium body, however this is well insulated and the interior walls are also finished in brushed aluminium. The seating/dining area is trimmed in leather and the food preparation area is equally as impressive. The kitchen surface is grooved to form a drainer, a feature more commonly seen in high-end domestic kitchens than in anything on wheels. Cooking equipment is a combined oven/grill and a three-burner hob. Ample storage/cupboard space is available as you would expect for what is the most expensive caravan available on the British market. This twin axle caravan is, by any standards, luxury on wheels. Supplied with the original invoice, the ‘Certificate of Origin for a vehicle’ from Airstream and a Touring Caravan Registration Document. Is there a better way to tour the UK or Europe than this? Pull up at a nice secluded spot, open a bottle of wine and watch the world go by………..
