Timeless builds winter tour trailer for Eddie Bauer

Timeless Travel Trailers of Denver recently completed substantial upfitting of a new Airstream 34' Pan America toy hauler for use by the Eddie Bauer Company in the introduction fo their FirstAscent line of mountaineering gear.



Timeless took delivery of the stock Pan America in early October and delivered the finished trailer to Eddie Bauer at Sun Valley, ID in mid-November. The trailer will be used as a mobile laboratory for the development of ski, snow boarding, and winter mountaineering clothing and gear. It will travel to ski areas throughout North America over the next two seasons.


Modifications to the Airstream included:
  • Removing the queen bed and modifying the floorplan of the forward sleeping area to accomodate the installation of four custom bunk beds for Zack and Reggie Crist who are the permanent intrepid crew as well as two occasional crew members.
  • A new night stand was built between the lower bunks which also serves as access steps to the upper bunks. All new work was custom built by Timeless craftsmen utilizing material which match or compliment the original factory finishes.
  • A dehumidifier was installed to avoid condesation soaking of the insulation blanket of the trailer.
  • Since the trailer will be overnighting in not traditional locations without hookups, Timeless installated four solar PV panels and additional batteries as well as the installation of a 6Kw generator.
  • The center section of the coach was left stock Pan America
  • The garage was stripped down to the aluminum interior skin and fitted with full length roof lockers and tow floor to ceiling storage lockers. A folding workbench for ski tuning was fitted to the curb side wall as was an equipment rack for audio amplifiers and video gear. A custom transport rack was built for storage of the military spec HDTV which operates on a mount on the exterior of the curb side. With its environmentally controlled case the TV can operate in any weather conditions at a temperature range of -40F to +150F.
  • Timeless installed a 3M brand low-tack vehicle wrap to approximately 50% of the exterior of the trailer along with substantial graphics for Eddie Bauer, FirstAscent, Whitaker Mountaineering and Airstream.
  • 120 volt AC /12 volt DC tank heating pads were installed on all three holding tanks to protect this area on the coldest winter nights.
  • Additional power outlets were installed for support of the A/V equipment.
The progress of the FirstAscent tour along with some great video and still pictures can be seen at the Eddie Bauer blog site: Airstream Lab If you drill down through the site you will find the photo above of the Airstream being towed on the snow right up to the base of the lifts at Vail/Beaver Creek Ski Area with a snow cat and through a winter strom with the team's custom F-450 Ford diesel truck.

This was a great project and the folks at Eddie Bauer were fantastic to work with! Keep your eyes open for this custom Airstream and its matching Ford truck.

Awesome.. love to see airstream out in the community serving others.. its great brand recognition and seems fitting as an all weather trailer (even though we know there are warmer and better insulated RV's on the market). I think most folks who see this unit would think that airstream = and igloo..

Great job outfitting it for your needs!

Thanks for sharing..

Vinnie

There are a number of videos and stills of the Eddie Bauer Timeless Airstream at:BORN OUT THERE - THE FIRST ASCENT BLOG. There are several other expeditions going on around the world that are also posted on this blog so you may have to dig a bit to find just the ones about the Airstream. If you search for Zack or Reggie Crist you will find the trailer stories, photos and videos.
