Can you rent an Airstream trailer for an epic vacation? You sure can! We’ve got the scoop on an Airstream rental near you including how much it costs, the different models available to rent and more.
Airstream Trailers are Just Cool
Let me start off with a confession. Every time Todd and I would see an Airstream pull into an RV park, we were a tad bit jealous. On one of the first nights of our full-time RVing journey, we were parked right next to an Airstream Basecamp. The owner was nice enough to give us a tour and we were instantly wowed by this little travel trailer.
We also have a few friends who own an Airstream and they too have given us tours of their rigs.
Airstreams are just cool…there’s no doubt about it.
They’re so cool, even NASA has used them. Have you seen Apollo 11? It was so fun to see the RVs parked in the lot as people drove out to witness the space shuttle launch. But not only that, we noticed it was an Airstream that took the astronauts to the launch pad.

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN RENTING AN RV
Once you find a rental that catches your eye, click on it and read all of the details. I recommend you look out for the following details:
- What amenities does the rental have? For example, kitchen utensils and appliances, outdoor chairs, grill, etc.
- Will they deliver the rig?
- Are you allowed to tow it if you want to and if so, what’s required to tow? (hitch ball, etc)
- What are the rules?
- What are the extra fees?
- Are they pet-friendly and if so, is there an extra cost?
- Be aware of required levels of insurance you need to carry for the rental.
Why Rent an Airstream?
RVing is such a fun way to create family memories. And renting an RV is a great idea. Here are a few key reasons:
- It allows you to try before you buy
- You can (sometimes) bring your pets
- No maintenance or storage fees, which any RV owner can tell you is a high cost
- You can enjoy the comforts of a home on wheels
- It can save you money on travel compared to airline and hotel expenses
As far as why you might want to specifically rent an Airstream, all of the above reasons apply. With a rental, you can experience what it’s like to travel and stay in an Airstream. Within a short one week rental, you can have a better sense of whether or not that type of travel trailer is a good fit for your family.
Your rental test will help you narrow down why it’s not a fit. Maybe you need more common area, a different kitchen setup, or more luxury items than a typical Airstream offers. Even if it’s not exactly the type RV you’re looking to buy, I think you’ll enjoy the vacation. Because, you know, Airstreams are super cool!
How Much Does It Cost to Rent an Airstream?
The specific cost of renting an Airstream will vary depending on the rental location, age, and model of the rig. In addition, you need to factor in any extra fees such as for pets, cleaning service, and insurance.
In my quick search of Airstream rentals in our area, the rental prices range from $103 to $380 per night.
I recommend you search on Outdoorsy to get a sense for the price range in the area where you plan to travel. It’s fun to look at all the travel trailers available for rent. Start dreaming and planning that vacation.
