For almost ninety years Airstream has been the driving force for innovation in the recreational vehicle industry. From Airstream founder Wally Byam pioneering RV technology like refrigerators, toilets, screen doors, and showers in travel trailers, to today’s smart technology in connected RVs, Airstream has led the way with solutions that improve the travel experience.
Last month, Airstream was recognized for their most recent trailblazing innovation at RVX: The RV Experience in Salt Lake City, Utah. Airstream took home the annual show’s New Horizons award, which honors innovative RV products that represent the future of the industry. The award was presented during the event’s “Reveal,” which showcased the most innovative RV products on the market.
“RVX gathered leaders in the RV industry and valuable members of the outdoor recreation community in a uniquely collaborative environment,” said Bob Wheeler, CEO and President of Airstream. “We were honored to receive the New Horizon Award for the Classic Smart Trailer, which is a nod to our leading-edge position on RV technology and customer experience.”
Due to increased demand and strong interest in smart technology and connectivity, Airstream’s product offering has expanded to accommodate the modern-day road warrior. This includes the recent announcement of Airstream’s all-new Connected kit and app, which grants connectivity to any Airstream, regardless of the year or model.
“RVX’s first-ever ‘Reveal’ unveiled the industry’s best new products, as selected by a panel of consumer media and social media influencers, across nine consumer lifestyle categories,” said Frank Hugelmeyer, RV Industry Association President. “We are so pleased to see that Airstream’s innovative Classic Smart Trailer and its Smart Control Technology were acknowledged with the New Horizon Award. We look forward to continuing and expanding on our relationship with this iconic brand.”
