Thanks for posting this. I always enjoy reading these odd couple marketing stories.
It is a cool and fun CONCEPT. But that is kind of all it is. A conceptual design exercise
meant to attract buyers to the Clubman and the Airstream individually, paired together to suggest this is one of the many ways these vehicles could be used.
But there is always going to be that uncomfortable moment when that excited customer asks.....where can I buy this? Well, er, sorry.....it is the only one, and besides, the mini does not have a hitch and could not pull it anyway.
Then the "product specialist" will weave an elaborate yarn about what will soon be available in the Euro market. Next year, or maybe the next one after that. But it is coming. But more likely not.
Airstream Europe has the light weight galvanzed frame and axle with the narrower body. America does not. We still drive the big rigs and besides gas prices are low again.
And besides, Airstream blew all it's r&d money on the Basecamp and Jesse James Airstream Joke bike.
Don't get me wrong...this is a fun concept. I get it. But NOW is the time for American Companies to actually start producing fuel saving and dare I say smaller trailers and tow vehicles.
Where's the beef?
