Maybe it’s the inviting living space inside the curved metallic shell. Or it's the way it evokes a palpable nostalgia for a good ol’ fashioned road trip. Either way, the Airstream trailer is an American RV icon and has been for more than seven decades. Whatever the reason, there’s no denying the allure of the adventure-bound silver bullet. If hunting one down to refurbish yourself isn't in the cards, but you'd still love an escape, don't worry, we took the time to cull through thousands of listings to finf the 11 best Airstream rentals from across America.
Originally founded in the mid-1920s, it took another ten years before Airstream transformed its trailers into the sleek and shiny iteration that we know and love today. Built to last, Airstream's classic travel trailers have durable riveted aircraft-grade aluminum exteriors that are easy to maintain and won’t rust or succumb to the elements, which makes them the perfect basecamp for outdoor adventures.
While you’ll still see them whizzing down the highway en route to campsites and RV parks, most recently, travelers and campers have been drawn to remodeled, stationary Airstreams that are available to rent in scenic destinations near national parks or even in popular city suburbs. Well-designed and fully stocked with creature comforts, these retro rigs have become even more popular for those who want a one-of-a-kind getaway.
From bohemian-inspired hangouts to ultra-modern conversions, park yourself in one of these unique luxury Airstream rentals for a memorable escape that'll beat the Motel 6 any day.

Kennebunkport, ME — Sandy Pines Campground
Vibe: Retro Meets Rustic
Southern Maine’s Sandy Pines Campground has not one, but three vintage Airstreams to book. Choose from the Zephyr, Wayfarer, or Fannie (a remodeled turquoise RV trailer who deserves a mention) for a long weekend in a picturesque wooded campground that’s also close to some of the state’s only sandy beaches. For those who are looking for a cabin instead of an Airstream, check out Sandy Pine’s Glass House and Hideaway Huts.
Bradenton, FL — ‘71 Empress Airstream
Vibe: Sunshine State of Mind
Come for the bright and airy remodeled Airstream, but stay for the private pool, hot tub, and rock waterslide (yes, we’re serious). The soothing all-white interior has a beachy style and is filled with lush greenery — including a faux vertical garden — giving the feeling that you’re actually off exploring some of its subtropical landscape, rather than hanging out in a trailer. It’s just a short walk from the beach, town, and close to the Anna Maria Islands.
Swannanoa, NC — The RhodoDen
Vibe: Carolina Campout
Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, this dreamy Argosy Airstream is surrounded by a swath of the same colorful rhododendrons it’s named after. The simple, laidback interior is loaded with vintage charm, with an outdoor deck and fire pit that’s perfect for lounging around after a day of hiking the trails or exploring nearby Asheville.
Austin, TX — Vintage Airstream
Vibe: Texas Throwback
Bursting with bright pops of canary yellow, aqua, and ochre red hues, this vintage painted Argosy Airstream leans all the way into its cheerful retro vibe. Staying true to Austin’s mantra of “keeping it weird”, it’s full of character and whimsy with unique details and old-fashioned kitchen appliances, but in a super cute way that makes us want to find the nearest honky tonk bar.
Wimberly, TX — Luxe Airstream
One of the perks of staying in this shiny Airstream is getting to sit back and relax under the starry Texas night sky in a matching aluminum soaking tub, complete with floating pink flamingos, naturally. Enjoy having all the modern amenities you could need, on six acres of private land in the scenic Texas Hill Country, all a short drive from an artesian spring, underwater caves, and downtown Austin.
Phoenix, AZ — Vintage 1967 Airstream
Vibe: Uber-Mod Motorhome
From the outside, this matte black and shiny, metallic Airstream looks a little harsh, but the all-wood interior warms things up just like the hot Arizona sun. Speaking of heat, this refurbished trailer has two AC units to keep you cool, plus unlimited hot water and a cushy queen-sized bed for staying cozy at night. Hop on one of their cruiser bikes and take a spring through the nearby Coronado neighborhood for a little local flavor.
Half Moon Bay, CA — Coastal Airstream Dream
Vibe: All About the Vista
Although this Airstream trailer rental might have a pretty lackluster interior it’s all about that location, location, location. Set on nine acres of private property on the edge of a dramatic coastal cliff, nearly every window offers unobstructed sweeping views of the Pacific. Take it all in from the comfort of your own Adirondack chairs on the wooden platform deck, and make sure to explore the trails and sandy beaches below.
Joshua Tree, CA — Piece of the Sky
Vibe: That ‘70s Airstream
Go back in time to groovier days with a stay in this ‘70’s-inspired Airstream trailer Airbnb in the Joshua Tree desert. Inside, it’s awash in soft and earthy colors, cozy, organic textures and a mix of vintage upholstery with modern design for a laid back vibe that any hippie would approve of. Enjoy the deck and hammock swings, and hang out at the thoughtfully-designed communal clubhouse.
Joshua Tree, CA — Sunlight Ranch
Vibe: Airstream 51
While it’s not exactly an Airstream, this reimagined vintage camper earned a spot on the list for its extraterrestrial style. Parked two-plus hours away from Los Angeles near Joshua Tree National Park, its curved silver windows, white and cherry red exterior, and crop circle-esque sun shades makes it look like it came from another planet. Didn’t pick up on the UFO theme? Don’t worry, the galactic bedspread will remind you.
Chatsworth, CA — Vintage Travel Trailer Camp
Vibe: Bohemian Wonderland
Although, not technically an Airstream, this off-grid Southern California trailer deserves a mention for its beautifully remodeled retro interior, a luxurious outdoor bed complete with a canopy, and panoramic views of the canyon and rolling hills. It’s a spacious, inviting, and downright scenic place to park for a night.
