Airstream, maker of the iconic American aluminum travel trailer, has partnered with legendary woolen mill Pendleton on a cool new limited edition trailer celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
In conjunction with the 2016 Pendleton National Park Foundation Airstream Travel Trailer, Pendleton is also launching a new National Park Collection of products featuring apparel, accessories and home goods, several of which are featured in the limited edition Airstream.
The sleek vehicle, which features a wood, leather and wool interior, has an MSRP of $114,600. Only 100 of the trailers are being produced, with $1,000 from each sale going to the National Park Service, amounting to a $100,000 donation from Airstream in all.
"In 1916, Pendleton debuted the first National Park Blanket in Glacier Stripe, that same year the National Park Service was born," notes Pendleton exec Bob Christnacht. "The parks have remained an important part of our heritage ever since, [and] we now have ten featured parks highlighted in our blanket collection that honor these great American treasures.”
Each of the trailers includes a rear sport hatch for immersive views and easy loading/unloading of oversized equipment such as bikes or kayaks; roomy living spaces with lodge-inspired decor; and the new park-inspired Pendleton décor and accessories. The 28-foot trailer can sleep six people, and its queen size bed comes complete with Pendleton bedding.
“As we kick off the next century of the National Park Service’s critical work, we couldn’t be more pleased to have two of America’s most iconic outdoor brands join together to not only help us celebrate, but also help us preserve this country’s magnificent landscapes, rich history, and cultural treasures for generations to come,” said Susan Newton, vice president of grants and programs for the National Park Foundation.
