Airstream Flying Cloud

The 2019 Airstream Flying Cloud 23FB retains the classic look of Airstreams of old, but is full of modern amenities and boasts a smart floorplan.

Growing up, there was this weird camper trailer that my mom owned, but she kept it over at my grandparents’ farm. It was long, silver and kind of weird looking. I wasn’t allowed to play in it and we didn’t have it for long before my mom sold it off in favor of a motorhome. She regretted doing that because the motorhome was nothing but headaches, but she said several times that we just didn’t have a way to tow the trailer anymore, so it made sense. Now that I’m older, I really regret her doing that. I would have loved to still have that vintage Airstream Travel Trailer.

Eddie Bauer Airstream - ExteriorWith more than 160 years of combined experience, Airstream and Eddie Bauer have partnered to create what Airstream is calling the ultimate adventure travel trailer, which was specifically designed to bring outdoor enthusiasts closer to Mother Nature in comfort and style.

The Eddie Bauer Airstream includes a unique sport hatch in the rear of the trailer. This hatch allows for easy loading/unloading of oversized equipment such as bikes and kayaks which can then be secured in the fold-away dinette/lounge area. The unit is also equipped with premium oversized Michelin tires to provide greater ground clearance and rugged wheel-well cladding to protect against off-road debris. A handheld exterior shower makes for easy clean-up for the traveler, their equipment, or their four legged-companions. Extra clotheslines and racks are intended for hanging wet clothing while durable exterior tie hooks are ideal for securing equipment or making sure Fido stays close by.

Eddie Bauer Airstream - HatchThe interior features an Eddie Bauer-inspired décor, including maple and soapstone laminates, fossilized leaf pattern roof locker doors, quilted fabrics with contrast piping, as well as durable and stain-resistant Sunbrella upholstery. The 25-foot trailer can sleep four people, and its queen-size bed comes with an Eddie Bauer Goose Down duvet, pillows, and throw to provide total comfort at the end of an adventurous day. And the rear sport hatch, with its roll-down screen helps bring the outdoors in.

airstream-bclass-lg1007Addressing a growing segment within the RV industry, Airstream has announced plans to bolster its Class B motorhome business. Airstream has reorganized its sales force and announced three key hires dedicated solely to the company’s new Touring Coach division, which includes the 2011 Airstream Interstate and Airstream Avenue motorized coaches.

Airstream’s focus on the Class B market is motivated by the growing strength of this segment. Statistical Surveys Inc (SSI) reports that year-to-date Class B sales are up 42.8 percent over 2009, illustrating the BVan lifestyle as a growing trend nationwide. As such, Airstream has restructured its sales force and hired  a general manager for its touring coach division, Tim Garner, along with two regional sales directors – John Huttle for the western United States and Scott Lucas for the east.

“Our 20 years experience building BVans combined with Thor Industries’ financial strength and these newly hired resources puts us in a position to grow our market share in this segment aggressively,” says President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “We feel strongly that the size, price, and fuel efficiency of these motorhomes will make them the ideal choice for many customers.”
