JACKSON CENTER, Ohio - If you want to take fine woodwork on the road, the cabinetry and millwork on Airstream's Globetrotter will fill the bill - setting you back a cool $100,000.
Airstream, which has partnered with high-end designers for unique models in the past, this time worked with Astheimer Limited, a renowned UK-based design studio production model. Architectural Digest calls the design "stylish, sophisticated."
They are also starting an attention-getting site for the launch event: the Adobe MAX Conference, October 18 in Las Vegas.
Airstream says the Globetrotter presents a modern, refined look that celebrates minimalism with supple curves and symmetry.
"Nearly 70 years ago our founder Wally Byam and his lifelong friend, Cornelius Vanderbilt, painted the word 'Globe Trotters' on the side of their Airstream and set out on a European adventure," said Bob Wheeler, president and CEO of Airstream.
"We created the Globetrotter to capture the spirit of Wally's wanderlust, Neil's fondness for Europe, and their mutual love of modern design. The end result is a travel trailer that blends the classic Airstream look with a style that truly sets it apart."
The Globetrotter's interior features a layer of contemporary sophistication with premium finishes and fixtures, including aluminum walls, panoramic windows, a curved headboard and cabinets, wrap-around upholstery, recessed speakers, and backlighting throughout. The Globetrotter will be available in four interior décor choices based on the dark walnut and natural elm themes.
A host of design-centric features includes:
- Hand-crafted Italian lite-ply laminated interior cabinetry
- Franke high-rise faucet and Moen oversized rectangular stainless-steel sink under-mounted to a Corian countertop
- New overhead storage locker design with radius slim-fit doors and backlit interiors
- Power awning and window awning package with premium Sunbrella® fabrics (optional)
- Polk audio system with recessed speakers
- Infinity Luxury Woven Vinyl flooring
The 27-foot Globetrotter is priced at $99,900 MSRP.
