I probably wouldn't buy a themed Airstream, either, but I'd make a special trip to my dealer to check one out and either admire it or poke fun at it, depending on how well-executed the theme is.

I'm surprised no one has brought up the Pamela Anderson playboy Airstream. It was unique (thank GOD).

Until I retired a year ago, I was gainfully employed as a mechanical engineer, so I was probably even less fun. Or at least I had less of an aesthetic sense, because engineering is all about "form follows function" and it didn't matter if a design was ugly as sin as long as it worked as it was supposed to.

But this thread is just a thought exercise, not a Thor Industries marketing survey, so who cares whether any given concept is practical or how much it would cost?

Pams trailer really wasn't from Airstream. Several remarkable "themes" exist. I especially like the Ralph Loren ones.

Make a Jenner trailer? The exterior features change, but it's the same inside.

Considering the recent "Airstream Motorhomes in History or in the Media" thread, how about a NASA theme?

A Shaker style Airstream would be my number one pick. Simple, functional clean lines, quality build and very American. Danish modern would be nice as well.

That said, I'm not a big fans of themes. I just want great design, excellent function and quality. I'm likely to tire of any specific upholstery and color schemes after a few years and would want a change anyway. Remember Peter Max? Tastes change...

But since you asked... how about:

Japanese tea house
Yosemite Ski Theme
Hows about a Stickley Airstream?
Brew PubStream - the booze trailer...

I'm talking about something the EB should have been. Not just a safari with a rear hatch.

Bingo! The concept gets people interested or re-interested.

This is the death knell for any product, service, or organization.....

Actually fins hooked up to a Yaw sensor? Kind of like stabilizers on a boat. Might be handy at a 130 MPH.

Huh?off topic, Andrew, got two of your customers parked on my cul de sac here in Gainesville, Florida. Nice couple of ladies from Manitoba. They seem to be having a great time even after the minor accident in Atlanta. Good people with a trailer from a good dealer.
