"Affordable" Airstream Just $49,066

I'm really more of a room service kind of person, but I've always appreciated those shiny metal Airstream trailers you see on the highways looking for a place to hook up to a cesspool. I'm a city kid and I didn't do much camping until I went to school in the suburbs. In fact, I'm such a city kid that, when during college, I went to teach theatre at a Santa Cruz mountain summer camp, I was the only one on staff who hadn't passed the Red Cross lifesaving class and I had no idea how to swim the butterfly stroke. In contrast, none of those suburban, middle-class, christian, republican staff members had a father who was a gangster or a mother who spoke French-Canadian.
Mini-AirstreamThose bright folks at Design Within Reach (DWR Studio) in partnership with architect Chris Deam have come up with a designer travel trailer for those who have some disposable income or just like having an American icon sitting in their driveways. The "affordable" Airstream sells for just $49,066 and comes with brand name chairs, linens, and other accessories you can show off to your friends. This Saturday, they're having an open house in Manhattan Beach where you can take a look at this cute and cozy little item. Despite my lack of disposable income, a driveway, and a need to purchase trendy things I don't need, I'll give them $3,000 for one of them - CASH. Or maybe on my next vacation, I'll just invest the $3K on room service. Don't miss the popcorn, the hot dogs, and the book raffle.

"DWR has partnered with Airstream and architect/designer Chris Deam to introduce the Design Within Reach Airstream travel trailer. Instead of telling you how cool it is, just come by and experience it for yourself. A representative from the local Airstream dealership will be on hand to answer any questions. See this update of an American icon in person and take part in our raffle for your chance to win a copy of a book documenting the history of Airstream. Popcorn, hot dogs and other refreshments will be served."
