The New Era of Customized Luxury Travel Trailers

24th September 2018 // By Alexandra Cheney

Airstream Globetrotter

Peak Americana meets European minimalism in the Globetrotter, Airstream’s newest premium travel trailer. Globally recognized as experts in the segment, the longest-tenured recreational-vehicle manufacturer in North America partnered with UK-based Astheimer Limited, fusing the iconic riveted-aluminum profile with contemporary aesthetics not typically found on the beloved silver bullet.

Handcrafted Italian cabinetry as well as Franke, Grohe and Moen finishes and fixtures add a layer of sophistication. Panoramic windows, a curved headboard with a Tuft & Needle adaptive mattress, radius slim-fit doors and low-profile backlighting style the space that blends Airstream’s utilitarian elements with refined sensibilities.

Adventure seekers have equated Airstream with the great outdoors for more than a half-century, but this collaboration marks a step for the brand into an intentional lifestyle that surpasses mere practicality. While it can easily adapt to on- or off-grid residing, the 28-ft trailer features a 1,000-watt pure sine inverter, separate shower and optional 50-amp A/C unit with heat pump.Weighing in at just over 6,000 lbs, the Globetrotter is one of the lightest in its class,meaning most SUVs can handle the tow.
