Airstream ? -like modern trailer

Saw a cool silvery trailer go by yesterday in Jackson Hole, WY. I didn't get a great look at it but could have sworn it said "Airstream" or something -"stream" on the back. Not sure what vehicle was towing it either. Looked like an aluminum, modernized and rounded off travel trailer. A bit of a wedge shape in front. Somewhat on the smaller size...perhaps 19' to 24'. Any ideas on what this was? I've scoured every manufacturer site I could find but have found nothing. Does Airstream have such a product that is not on their website? What other manufacturers are producing trailers in stainless/aluminum or maybe just silver paint? Thanks for any ideas.

Nevermind, think I figured it out. And not as impressive as the quick glance provided.

Star Stream, right? A Starcraft product. Yes, not very impressive. High centre of gravity, leaf springs, slab sides - a poor imitation of an Airstream. It doesn't reflect well on Starcraft, which is generally regarded as one of the better trailer manufacturers.

Sounds like the Star Stream Expandable model. The front folds out like a pop up. Not the most attractive trailer on the road.

Wow...impressive. That was it, the 18RB expandable. Thanks for the followup.

When it's your money on the line buying the TT, you have every right to think it "cool".

ps: for an SOB, I think it looks cool, too!

Wasn't putting my friend down ... was stating that he did think it was cool and was impressed with it, I wasn't but that was just my mho, didnt want to sound like an airstream snob ... i just didn't care for it. Just to set the record straight.

I saw one in a campground a couple of weeks ago in South Carolina. In contrast to, and in comparison with, the SOB's that surrounded it, I was rather impressed.
