The classic Airstream is quite popular these days as traveling and living on the road has become the dream of the retired and the millenials, who want to get away from the hassle of a busy life. So let’s talk about why the Airstream itself is so popular, especially this classic 1986 345 model.
First of all, the Airstream can, with good maintenance and care, last forever. This is primarily why they are classics. The unusual but highly recognizable shape is another reason travelers love this camper as much as they do. While most campers are rectangular and simply look like small trailer trucks, the Airstream takes on a forever modern look being rounded and curved which is very fashionable.
The Airstream was created by Wally Byam in 1932 and was considered as innovative then as it is now. The construction is aerodynamic with its aluminum styling and build, the 1986 Airstream still mimics the build and style of the Airstream that is made today. When purchasing this model you are getting a classic vehicle with a modern look and flare. Reliablity is another great reason why owning this 1986 Airstream 345 is a great idea for traveling by yourself or with family. Research done in 2006 found that 60-70% of Airstream camper trailers are still running at top condition on the road. You can depend on an Airstream and the Airstream name.
The Airstream can get up to 10 mpg when it comes to gas mileage. For a camper this is pretty good compared to many you see on the road. For a car, that would be expensive but for a vehicle like the 1986 Airstream 345, this is decent gas mileage and about what is expected from a camper trailer. When taking your family on the road, you want to be riding in a vehicle that is known for reliability and good gas mileage and safety. With the Airstream you get all of that plus an aerodynamic and attractive camper in which to travel. These are just some of the reasons that people are still interested in being Airstream owners. And this particular model comes with 5 awnings, how great is that for the times when you park for a short or long stay. You can stay protected from the sun and the rain. So many features will remind you of home and that is just what you want in a camper trailer.
