On the Road

Designed to Last

Did you know that over 70% of all Airstreams ever built are still in use today? That's because we use durable materials, intentional design and engineering principles, and skilled craftspeople to build our vehicles. There is no expiration date for an Airstream, so you don’t see them in landfills. From durable aluminum to handcrafted furniture and cabinetry, every Airstream is individually built to last for generations.

Aerodynamic Design for Efficiency

Airstream’s iconic design does more than attract attention. The aerodynamic, aluminum shell reduces drag on the highway, helping tow vehicles get better mileage. In controlled tests versus traditional box trailers measuring constant average speeds, tow vehicles that pulled Airstreams were more than twice as fuel efficient as tow vehicles pulling box trailers. In cross-wind conditions, Airstream’s aerodynamic design proved more stable, making the “Silver Bullet” both safer and more efficient.

Airstream supports more than a dozen charities and community partners, including:
