Airstream Debuts Innovative Travel Trailer Concept With Studio F. A. Porsche

Airstream Debuts Innovative Travel Trailer Concept With Studio F. A. Porsche

An unprecedented collaboration between American travel trailer manufacturer Airstream and Porsche Design‘s Studio F. A. Porsche has been unveiled in the form of an innovative travel trailer concept — the Airstream Studio F. A. Porsche Concept Travel Trailer.

Both companies have united decades of design experience to develop this next-generation recreational vehicle, which features an elevated design with cues to Airstream’s hallmarked aluminum aesthetics. Addressing the RV market’s changing demographics, the concept focuses on expanding the interiors and maximizing the dwellers’ space within the vehicle. Evident in the extensive use of skylights and windows to augment the interior’s spatial design, an implemented pop-up roof also provides additional headroom.

In addition, a lowering suspension is also incorporated, which allows the vehicle to be conveniently stored in any regular residential garage. The new rear shape also encourages better airflow while the trailer is in motion. This is a result of the advanced aerodynamics that has been integrated into the vehicle’s design, which also encompasses a flushed underside with reduced drag-creating projections.

Inside, the trailer is outfitted with sleek interiors that are designed to minimize aerodynamic drag and protrusions. While the heating and hot water systems, spare wheel, holding tanks, and lithium battery are safely stowed in the 10-inch-deep space beneath the floor.

“Innovation is the art of discovering the possible,” said Bob Wheeler, Airstream’s president and CEO. He elaborates that “Our collaboration with Studio F. A. Porsche brought talented new eyes and minds to our never-ending process of improving the Airstream experience. It’s a fresh design approach aimed at reaching a broader, more diverse base of potential customers.”

The concept vehicle is currently on showcase at the South by Southwest® (SXSW) Conference and Festivals in Austin, Texas. To read more about its features, head over to Airstream’s official website. In the meantime, take a closer look at the project’s photorealistic renderings in the gallery above.
