Looking to rent a 25-28ft airstream last week of Sept 2013 for 2 weeks in California

Hello

We are going to California for a conference end of September and would love to rent an airstream during this time. Our goal is to purchase one within in 1-2 years and this will be a bit of a test to see if we are making the right decision. Any advice as to where to rent one from. We will be driving from Alberta so can pick one up in a Northern State for the ride down. We have a 2013 VW Touareg TDI so towing is not an issue. Any advice on what company to approach would be greatly appreciated.
We are also willing to pick one up in California if there are none available farther north.

Hi, try "Airstream2go" at Airstream of Los Angeles, in California. They rent two size trailers complete with tow vehicle.

Welcome to the AF. As Robert has suggested, why not fly down and rent from www.airstream2GO.com and get that first hand experience with what AIRSTREAM has to offer. Your decision should be easy after that.

Thank you for the input however $5400 as a starting price for a week rental is a bit excessive.

Don't know what to tell you...yes I do

After spending over $50,000 for a new Airstream, or spending two or three years fixing up a vintage airstream, or spending tons having the work done by a restoration company, it's not likely that someone is going to want to let someone take off with their baby.
But there are a few campgrounds that have stationary Airstreams for you to stay in. There is a website for such a place in the southwest USA. Or...maybe some one will let you tag along on a little journey.
As for renting one from a rental company....do the math. The cost of the unit, insurance, cleaning, maintenance, storage, overhead, repairs, and then the profit. The camper would probably sit idle a good part of the year because of weather, and or lack of customers.
That being said, in this economy someone might be willing to set theirs up for you, so you could try it out.
You see....People with regular campers LIKE to camp...people with Airstreams LOVE their camper.

Completely understand that people covet their air streams. However if I was to consider renting an airstream for (starting price $5400/week) for two weeks I might as well just purchase one is all. I will continue to look and thank you everyone for your helpful feedback. Much appreciated.

Airstreams for rent

Have you seen the May 2013 edition of Sunset magazine? There is an article about renting Airstreams. Some were in California.

I think you get what you pAy for, Airstream to go includes the TV. I think it is a very good deal and smart to do for someone wanting to test run an AS.,new or used. They are expensive and this is really an inexpensive way to get true feel. I am learning they take a lot of tweaking around, with AS2GO that is all set for you, cheaper than disney for sure!
