Eddie Bauer and Airstream Partner for Special Edition Trailer

By: On: Thursday October 7 2010

eddie-lg1007Iconic American brands Eddie Bauer and Airstream have teamed up to build a special edition travel trailer, the Eddie Bauer Edition Airstream, and to develop premium co-branded items for 2011.

By combining Eddie Bauer’s heritage as The Original Outdoor Outfitter and Airstream’s focus on functional durability, the brands will target travelers who love to explore the outdoors in style. The special edition travel trailer will include a rear sport hatch to allow for easy access to gear and equipment and to “let the outside in.” It will also include finishing touches such as exterior protective cladding and unique interior surfaces, flooring and Eddie Bauer bedding.

“Airstreamers, like Eddie Bauer customers, have come to expect superior construction and design, and now with the Eddie Bauer Airstream we’ve added some special features that will appeal to their adventurous spirit,” says Bob Wheeler, president and CEO of Airstream. “The rear sport hatch allows Airstreamers to live the Eddie Bauer lifestyle, enjoying the outdoors as often as possible.”

eddie2-1007The relationship between Eddie Bauer and Airstream first began in 2009 when Eddie Bauer launched First Ascent, its line of world-class expedition gear. The company wrapped a custom-built Airstream PanAmerica in the First Ascent logo and its sponsored ski guides drove the trailer across the country, chasing the best snow conditions from Tahoe to Haines, Alaska. The relationship continued to evolve and will result in the special edition travel trailer, along with co-branded apparel and other gear due out next year.

The Eddie Bauer Edition Airstream will be featured in Eddie Bauer’s holiday gift catalog which arrives in mailboxes on November 8, 2010.
