Obsession Perfection: The Airstream Pendleton Special Edition Travel Trailer

Anyone else as excited as I am over the 2016 Airstream Pendleton Special Edition travel trailer?

Two timeless American brands, Airstream and Pendleton Woolen Mills, have come together for the first time to pay tribute to our nation's parks and to great outdoor adventure. Coinciding with the centennial of the National Park Service, Airstream proudly introduces the 2016 Limited Edition Pendleton National Park Foundation travel trailer. (PRNewsFoto/Airstream)

This partnership is so perfect, I can’t believe it hasn’t happened before now.

Airstream and Pendleton Woolen Mills are two outdoor classics. Both have built distinctive brands that are not only recognizable in and of themselves, but that are synonymous with camping and our national parks. This is why it’s so fitting that the two companies have joined forces to celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service … beautifully, I might add.

The Airstream Pendleton Limited Edition is truly limited — they’re producing only 100 of these travel trailers (paying tribute to 100 years of the National Park Service). For each unit sold, Airstream will donate $1,000 to the National Park Foundation (the National Park Service’s official charitable partner), and they’re throwing in a one-year America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreation Land Pass.

I’ve been obsessed with both Airstreams and Pendleton blankets since I started camping with Jason. The wool blanket obsession started during our first trip to Yosemite when the seemingly thin wool blankets in our tent cabin kept me warmer than I could have ever imagined. Warm AND beautiful wool Pendleton blankets … what’s not to love?!

I don’t know that an Airstream travel trailer will ever be right for our family for several reasons. But I can definitely appreciate their beauty and place in Americana.

Jason and I recently attended our first camper and RV show in Madison. No Airstreams, but it was interesting to explore so many camper models in one shot. And while we’ll be in our current travel trailer for many, many years to come, I made note of things we’d look for in a future camper. And it can’t hurt to dream of something as beautiful as this Airstream.

Anyways, I just had to express my love for the Pendleton Airstream. Bravo to both brands — you created a classic in its own right.

Question:

Do you have an Airstream and/or Pendleton obsession like I do?
