A wheel beauty

When the Airstream Trailer Company went into full-throttle production in 1932, there were 48 companies in the biz. Five years later, there were 400. Of those companies, today only Airstream remains, and looking at the totally tricked-out, sausage-shaped, riveted-aluminum-shell RVs, it’s little wonder why. Getting inside one of these beauties, however, takes cash, and a good amount of it. But now, instead of having to buy one, the most style-minded road tripper can rent one — for the first time ever. Airstream 2 Go is North America’s exclusive, factory-authorized source for current-model rentals like the Airstream 23, for four people, or the Airstream 28, for six. Both include a bathroom with shower, a refrigerator, gas grill, microwave and AC plus kitchen utensils, bedding and towels, a flat-panel TV with DVD player and camping chairs. Rentals are available in LA and Vegas, but there are plans to expand across the US. A minimum five-day rental is required; rentals include a GMC Yukon Denali sport-utility vehicle for towing. Take-it-and-go rates start at US$3850; custom-planned itineraries (from partner outfitter Off the Beaten Path) start at US$4600. tel: (800) 780-9880; airstream2go.com.
