Will somebody please buy this for me?

Just kidding. It's $49,000. But ever since we stayed at the Shady Dell, I've longed for an Airstream trailer. And what should arrive in the mail today, but a new Design Within Reach catalog featuring THIS on the front. They've designed their own Airstream, and I am in love. Read about it at the DWR and Airstream websites.

Oh, I just want that to be my house. I would need so much less.

I must say I'm not a camping/rv type of gal...but that airstream would make me give it a shot!

I say: BUY IT!!! forget responsibility and the chilly 9 monthes out of the year when I wouldn't be caught dead in Chicago....

Highly cool. I want one too. Might be fun to rent one if that's being done anywhere. Thanks for sharing.

I have always loved Airstreams and the DWR version is just so great. I'd live in it (but not with the kitty, doggie, and two kids).

I love DWR. Maybe it's me, but it still seems a little out of reach. Next year you should enter the champagne miniature chair contest. The prize is a big gift certificate.

Funny that you should post this. We recently bought (after much coveting) a 1975 Airstream Safari in fabulous 70's colours. Its our house right now as we're renovating and with a 2.5 year old and three cats...well let's just say its a bit cozy. But its an AIRSTREAM and I love it. I'm going to the DWR site for more decorating inspriation!

My husband has been talking about this. I had no idea what he was talking about. Now I know!

Reminds me of Bob Blumer's toaster airstream.

Puts a new spin on the Chris Farley./SNL idea of "Livin' in a van...Down by the river."

My Boyfriends parents have had one since the 70's and everytime they go camping they get outragous offers from people walking by. They will never sell. They treat the silver twinkie like an exclusive club.

thats too cool! i was driving the other day and thinking how neat those airstreams were. just the right amount of modern convience and retro appeal.

Who would have guessed that a trailer can look so hip? I knew about this project but I never look at the interior before. Wow!
