Airstream 2 Go Featured in Wall Street Journal

Interesting article in today's Wall Street Journal (Off-Duty section), probably also a good answer to various threads on whether or not to lend out your Airstream. Link below:

Swell on Wheels

WITH THEIR ICONIC rounded silhouettes and aluminum shells, Airstream campers manage to stir up nostalgia and futuristic dreams all at once. People with Airstreams always seem to be going somewhere fun—and a new company is making it easier to join their ranks. Better yet: There's no roughing it involved.

Airstream 2 Go offers travelers a high-end RV experience. The campers it rents are current models (23- and 28-footers) outfitted with high-thread-count linens, duvets, flat-screen televisions, power awnings, iPod docks, gas grills and rearview cameras to help with parking. A new GMC Yukon Denali is included for towing.

You can rent the Airstream and just go where whim takes you, or have the company's partner, Montana-based adventure outfit Off the Beaten Path, map out a custom itinerary. Take things up another notch with concierge service, and they will plan your journey and arrange all the details, from surfing lessons to a parking spot on private land with an outstanding view of Yosemite National Park.

Airstream 2 Go aims to remove any intimidation factor for first-timers, walking them through how to handle the trailers, then handing over an iPad Mini stocked with maps, tips and even music playlists.

Founder Richard "Dicky" Reigel knows the Airstream brand inside and out; he served as its CEO and president from 2002 to 2005. "People were always asking me where they could rent one," he said.

His answer: Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Airstream 2 Go is starting out with a location in each city, putting classic western destinations within easy reach.

Weeklong rentals from $5,300 for truck and a 23-foot FB Airstream that sleeps up to four people,
