New “Airstream Connected” LTE-WiFi Dealer Installed

Airstream is now offering their “Airstream Connected” solution with AT&T 4G LTE and WiFi Hotspot in a dealer installed solution with an MSRP of $999.

I wonder if Airstream will offer this as a factory-installed option or perhaps at Jackson Center. Has anyone had this installed yet?

This is installed as a standard feature on the Classic models, with one year of AT&T service included.

Uncapped data - meh. Get that all day long on any major carrier with mobile handset hotspot service.

Un-throttled speeds - now we’re talking.

1 grand for equipment. Booo! All I want is the SIM card chipset and LTE radio so I can associate with my VIN, qualify for AT&T’s in automotive vehicle-hot-spot-airstream-special-service and integrate with my existing in-trailer network...

I believe the following existing thread covers the same plan, with the recent posts going into some detail about possible hiccups with the router setup.

See Post #102 by turk123, and later posts. Not sure how the SNAFU is working out with AS and ATT.

Thanks Jim, I knew they offered it on the Classic. We’ve got a new 27’ GlobeTrotter on order and was thinking it would be great if the did the hardware installation while on the assembly line.

Our 2019 RAM 1500 has a 4G LTE hotspot but it would be more convenient to have it in the Airstream.

Hi Jeff

PM me if you would like some first-hand info on this system. It's not a perfect system, but can be improved.

I am guessing about 50 Gb / month. Both my wife and I stream a lot to two Chromecasts on the two TVs in our trailer. I also am running my business from here. We have 2 laptops, Ipad, Samsung pad, 2 phones, google hub and 2 chromecasts.

Yes. I am also consolidating the project into one document with images on what we did and how it performs. It is spread out over several threads. I hope this will help put it all in one place. I will post as one pdf here and elsewhere.

Consolidated Airstream connect solution

Here is a link to a PDF of a document I created from the many posts about the Airstream connect issues and a solution for it. I hope this helps those experiencing problems with the Peplink modem and for those considering the new upgrade from Airstream.

The upgrade is fine, just needs this tweak to work efficiently.

Nice write up Turk123. Much appreciated.

All I want is to get my hands on that pepwave LTE modem with integrated sim chipset, and have it unlocked.

That’s all I want, no cables, no antennas, no installation, no nothing just that box did you happen to get the model number off the back?

I think I have a path
