About Airstream’s flagship trailer 

Airstream recently unveiled models from its 2021 lineup. And as you probably heard, Airstreams have surged in popularity amidst the coronavirus pandemic. This RV brand offers small and midsize campers ideal for those who might want a simple mobile weekend getaway. But for extended excursions, the Airstream’s Classic makes a lot of sense.
