What is the Timeless 'Smithsonian' Interior?

Anyone know what this is exactly? There is a vague reference here....
Airstream to unveil 'Land Yacht' Concept Trailer inspired by the luxury yachts

Hi FaN,
I really don't have any personal knowledge to share other than to say that the Colonial Airstream web site has a link to their Facebook page where Pat Botticelli has posted a number of pix of the Land Yacht as well as a new FC 30' bunk bed layout.

Best regards,

John S.

That is just a bit of bad reportage.

McConaughey customized a trailer with Timeless Travel Trailers, which was based on an Airstream shell but so highly customized that it is legally registered as a "Timeless Custom," not an Airstream.

He also separately customized a 1953 Airstream Flying Cloud with GSM Vehicles. This was partially documented in Airstream Life, as "Vintage Lightning," but I hear Matthew calls it "the canoe." (Incidentally, GSM Vehicles has changed ownership since that job was done, and Colin Hyde, who envisioned the project, now runs his own restoration shop.)

The reporter seems to have read a few inaccurate reports on the Internet and mashed them up to create one mythical trailer.

JDS and rluhr, thanks for the clarification.

"Bad reportage" is pervasive these days.

Wah! The pictures look like what I want - a "Classic" level trim without the coffin curtains and colonial kitch! Neat looking.

When you say "Smithsonian Interior" I was expecting something like this.

or this.




Not a bland modern version of a cold sterile kitchen.
