How Travel Trailers are Made

350 hours well spent

Every single Airstream travel trailer is carefully crafted by hand, right here at our headquarters in Jackson Center, Ohio. And each one takes an average of 350 hours to complete – compared to about 50 hours for the typical white box trailer. Why? Because we build our trailers to last not just a lifetime, but for generations and generations to come. That's why they easily outpace the average RV lifespan of 15 years, and why 70% of the Airstreams we've created since the 1930s are still on the road today.

Environmentally conscious, always

It goes without saying that preserving the planet is one of our top priorities. After all, it’s our mission to help people explore it. So, we take care to make our manufacturing process as conscientious and zero-waste as possible. Our factory is Certified Green by TRA and has earned the highest possible rating, the Emerald Award, for resource, energy, and water efficiency and indoor air quality. And on the road, our aerodynamic travel trailers help you achieve incredible fuel efficiency.
