Tailgating In My Best Friends’ Airstream

AirstreamInternationalLast fall, my buddy Jesse invited me to join him for a guys’ weekend in Idaho.  The plan was to ditch the wives and head to Boise State’s final game of the season… on the famous blue turf.  Jesse laid it on thick with his sales pitch, “beer, football, college girls, and tailgating in style in his new Airstream.”  I quickly cut him off, “You had me at beer and football man.” View full post…

Tips for Repairing a Leaky RV Window

leakyOwning an RV can be a great luxury, especially since they allow for you to travel essentially wherever you want on a whim. However, owning an RV can be quite expensive and requires constant preventative maintenance in order to keep it running well and to avoid more expensive repairs over time.

New Airstream Land Yacht Interior Shot

Airstream: the name says it all.

There’s no mistaking that aerodynamic aluminum tube as it whizzes down the highway, pulled by a sturdy vehicle whose driver wears a smug expression. And why shouldn’t he, or she? After all, Airstream is the Rolls-Royce of travel trailers, and their owners know they’re towing the best in the industry.

That’s more true than ever now as Airstream rolls out its new Land Yacht, a model first featured at Lousville’s National RV Trade Show in November. The word “yacht” is not an accident either. Airstream engineers worked closely with nautical designer Mauro Micheli and his Officinia Italiana studio, as well as with European cabinetry whizzes Tecnoform S.p.a. The result is awe-inspiring, a spirited blend of seagoing beauty and roadworthy practicality from its front bedroom to its rear social space.
