but only if we bring airstream’s special anniversary edition (with victorinox) along.
airstreams have always cut a gorgeous figure from the outside. with this new edition the interior is inspired by the sleek and functional style of a swiss army knife. the stainless exterior continues inside, in a refreshing contemporary spin with black and red. the materials become the ornamentation and decoration. and the price tag is reasonable, considering other caravans with insipid design cost far more. (more interesting designs at the end of the post.)
Airstream, the proud manufacturer of the world’s finest travel trailers, has combined creative forces with Victorinox Swiss Army to produce the Victorinox 125th Anniversary Special Edition Airstream. This limited Special Edition 19 foot travel trailer is unlike any other Airstream ever produced, featuring Victorinox-inspired design elements coupled with Airstream’s famous quality construction.

From the solid surface countertops, to the cutting-edge cabinets and hardware, to the luxurious custom bedding ensemble with embroidered wool blanket, and much more.

The pioneering spirit of the company founder, Karl Elsener, as well as his love of his native Switzerland, have been the driving inspiration of Victorinox over the last 125 years. Today, that inspiration takes form in a full selection of Swiss Army Knives, professional-grade kitchen cutlery, beautiful, Swiss-made timepieces, fashionable, functional apparel, rugged travel gear and unmistakable fragrances – each embodies the spirit of the legendary Swiss Army Knife.
In 1931, Wallace Merle Byam built a small camping trailer in his back yard in Los Angeles. He received so many requests from neighbors that he soon started a small company to build travel trailers that “cruised down the highway like a stream of air”, and Airstream was born. The lightweight, aircraft-inspired design soon caught the imagination of a nation eager to explore the open highways and byways that beckoned. For nearly 80 years Airstream has represented freedom and adventure, providing the perfect outlet for the wanderlust that still is central to the American spirit.
