Just a few months ago, we were deciding what kind of trailer to get for Small Room Collective. The deal was it had to be lightweight, preferably under 20′ and have some sort of innate charm to it. After debating between Crickets, canned hams, Airstreams, Spartans, Boles Aeros and many more we finally decided to go with an Airstream. Then the even harder task happened– the task of actually finding one that fit our criteria. They go fast and hard; it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there in the vintage Airstream-buying business. Travis finally found a 1963 Airstream Globetrotter on Ebay, after months of scouring Craigslist, Ebay, a daily morning ritual checking Airstream Classifieds, scoping out junkyards and farms as we passed on our drive from LA to Texas, and just talking with anyone and everyone who could possibly have a lead to our own coveted silver bullet Airstream(or as my Dad says, Air-dime) mobile.
Now, it’s on its way from a currently freezing and snowy part of Washington State. We can’t wait to see it in person, and to start building it out. Lots of dreams happening in our brains! Ay Ay Ay!
