1953 Airstream Cruiser 26″

Client: Weekend Off-grid explorers
Vessel: 1953 Airstream Cruiser 26′
Location: Pacific Northwest
Purpose: Family vacation vehicle

Design Highlights:

They requested a warm “Ralph Lauren” aesthetic with every amenity hidden from view and off-grid capacity. Every component was designed around the items they used to camp. In this trailer everything has a place that was custom designed to hold it. Under the sink the water filter, trash and recycling, drinking jug were modeled to build the cabinet around the minimum space needed to fit. This was the same for every drawer, cubbies or slide-out for the whole trailer. This trailer has the latest and greatest of every component while not seeing any of them.Everything in this trailer is custom designed and built.
