What comes to mind for me is a retro theme resonating with the international caravans... I'd go with an Orient Express edition... Those little cabins were totally amazing, full of little fitted cabinets, drawers, fold away sinks, etc.; it wouldn't be too hard to include some of that era's design, would it?
I also like the idea someone proposed with a National Park theme, not necessarily as fancy-dancy as the Pendleton, but with a rustic cabin feeling, cheerful colors, and simple design.

To expand on a variation of a 1950's theme, a 50's diner scenario mike be interesting.

Better yet, how about a removable, replaceable wrap!? As a matter of fact, you pick the design and I will print and install it for you. We're always looking for innovation applications for our large format print company.

We covered the Plaza Hotel in NYC while it was being renovated, top to bottom, with a breathable mesh that was printed with an image of the renovated exterior. So printing "field of flowers? Manly types fighting tarpon or marlin (much better than the 2lb seabass we typically catch)? Kayaks going over waterfalls, with the obligatory snow-capped mountain ranges in the background? Genteel canoeing with loons and waterlilies" on vinyl wrap material would be easy!

I came to America 50 years ago and I knew then what an Airstream was. Eventually I realized our dream 9 years ago and we own a 31' 1973! To us Airstream embodies the spirit of America for all the reasons you outline. So, because I love this country deeply, I would say "America the beautiful" would be my choice because it is an example of an exceptional iconic product from a very exceptional Country.
God bless America.

Maybe this original concept for the Eddie Bauer by Brian Thompson had some merit based on comments above.

starboard, your patriotism is admirable. I would add the Star-Spangled Banner or America the Beautiful sound effects (everytime you open the door).

Am trying to think of a patriotic trailer for Canadians based on this.....

Interesting thread...I've worked on several colbrative projects in the automotive field and the common theme is a marketing program from both entities. A national parks AS would be a great promo....only if the NPS spent a healthy six figure budget to promote the project....Too, AS would have to contribute to the project with a licensing fee and the end user will actually pay that! Now that my Safari is relegated to guest house duty on a parking pad next to the Animas River, my theme is, "It's 5 o'clock somewhere"

See what I have on the wall beside the FaN's bed?

The Sleeper Airstream would also come with this CD!.....
