The iconic ‘silver bullet’ gets a reboot

The longest-tenured RV manufacturer in North America—Airstream—just announced a brand-new production model: the 27-foot Globetrotter.

Known for their “silver bullet” riveted aluminum travel trailers, Airstream has been firing on all cylinders lately to develop new products. Last year the company debuted the Basecamp, a smaller 16-foot trailer that sleeps two, and a new Class B touring couch. Earlier this year Airstream went tropical and teamed up with Tommy Bahama for an island-themed camper, and the company’s much-anticipated Nest caravans are currently in development.

According to a press release, the new Globetrotter uses Airstream’s classic bullet shape and adds “European touches.” In collaboration with the UK-based design studio Astheimer Limited, the Globetrotter features a minimalist interior of aluminum walls, panoramic windows, wrap-around upholstery, recessed speakers, and backlighting throughout. It’s available with either walnut or elm finishes and four color palates: blue, cream, grey, or slate.

Like Airstream’s other popular models, you enter into the dinette and kitchen galley, where an oversized stainless-steel sink, Corian countertops, and overhead storage lockers await. A two-piece shower and bathroom sit across from each other, and the bedroom features either a queen-size bed or two twin beds. Whichever model you choose, the Globetrotter can sleep up to six with four people sleeping on the convertible dinette. Other perks include a power awning system with Sunbrella fabrics, woven vinyl flooring, and high-end bedding.

The Globetrotter is priced at $99,900 and dealers should start receiving inventory this month. Head over here for more.
