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 cost, the different models available to rent and more.
Airstreams 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 Airstreams 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 used them. Have you seen Apollo 11? It was so fun to see the RVs of the people who drove to witness the launch of the space shuttle. But not only that, we noticed it was an Airstream that took the astronauts to the launch pad.

Airstream Trailer rental is super easy. Just head over to Outdoorsy.com, type in ‘Airstream’ into the keyword slot on the left side and start your search. You can also set the location and date for your RV rental search.
Once you find a rental that catches your eye, click on it and read all of the details. Here are a few details to look for:

Why Rent an Airstream?
On our RV Rentals page, we dove into all of the reasons renting an RV is a really good idea. A few reasons we gave are:
- It allows you to try before you buy
- You can (sometimes) bring your pets
- No maintenance or storage fees (maintaining and storing an RV can add up!)
- You can enjoy the comforts of a home on wheels
- It can save you money on travel
As far as why you might want to specifically rent an Airstream, all of the above reasons apply.
What better way to experience what it’s like to travel and stay in an Airstream than by renting one. You might find that an Airstream is exactly the RV you want to buy or you might find that while they are seriously cool, it’s just not for you. Whether you need more room than they offer or there are some luxury items an Airstream doesn’t have.
How Much Does It Cost to Rent an Airstream?
It’s hard to put a specific price on what it cost to rent an Airstream. You have to factor in the location you’re renting from, the model you’re renting and if there are any extra fees.
In my quick search of Airstream rentals in our area, they ranged in price from $103 to $380 per night.
The best way to find out how much it will cost you is to a) read our article on RV rental prices and b) do some searching on Outdoorsy until you find one for a price you feel comfortable with.
