Overview

Dimples, is my most popular and beloved trailers. He has a remarkably well-preserved interior straight out of 1957, with all original cabinets, appliances and accessories. His interior has been meticulously restored, with all new curtains, upholstery and floors, and I was able to save all of the fun little accessories that came with the trailer when he was new. Dimples does not have an on board air conditioner, however I have a clever way to install a standard window unit which cools the trailer down in moments. Dimples comfortably sleeps up to four, with two twin beds and a gaucho couch that converts to a full-size bed. He can be towed by any modern mid- or full-size pickup or SUV. He’s got a gorgeous shine, and gets thumbs up everywhere he goes. Rentals come with linens for the gaucho and twin beds, pillows and blankets, towels, vintage kitchenware (plates, glasses, flatware), pots and pans, a coffee maker, cleaning supplies, a decently stocked pantry, and a few vintage magazines. We offer the following add-ons for rent on a daily basis. Make a note of what you might want to include on your trip and ask us when you’re making your reservation: - camp chairs - BioLite wood-burning grill - Coleman propane camp grill - portable canopy - bicycles Dimples' Back Story: Dimples was a 1-owner original when I found him at a Minnesota insurance salvage yard in 2015. It was obvious his family had loved him deeply and gotten many decades of use out of him. But all good things come to an end. As the family advanced in age, the trailer was taken off the road and stored outside. One year, he sustained widespread surface damage in a hailstorm, and the family filed an insurance claim. He was declared a total loss and taken away by the insurance company in exchange for a modest settlement. When he showed up in an online auction with nothing more than a 3-line description and a few dark and grainy pictures, I pounced, won the auction, and drove 18 hours straight from Washington DC to East Bethel, Minnesota to pick him up. Lucky for me, I found a trailer that had been remarkably well preserved, with all signs of a previous owner that had been very loving and caring. I decided to honor his whole life story by keeping the hail damage and calling him Dimples. I think you can feel six decades of love and affection clearly throughout this trailer, and I'm so proud to be responsible for getting him back on the road. Fun anecdote: When the Netflix production of Chambers came to me last summer with a request to rent several Airstreams from me to be used in an episode of the series I sent them a few photos of Dimples. The director of the series fell in love with the trailer. So much so that they production team decided to make a major reveal of the show inside of the trailer so that Dimples actually became a kind of character in the story line. It'll be up to you to watch the series, I will tell you the reveal happens in episode 5, to find the secret...which I asked that they leave in the trailer :)

Trailer Cleaning Fee Required

We deliver our vintage trailers freshly cleaned inside and out. We charge a nominal cleaning fee after your rental term to come back around and sweep & scrub the interior of the trailer, remove and launder the linens, and reset all of the interior elements to trip-launch standards. We appreciate it when our clients leave us with a broom-swept floor, clean dishes, fully evacuated gray and black tanks, cloth-wiped bathroom fixtures, clean oven, and empty refrigerator. (Note this cleaning fee does not cover deep cleaning or repairs needed after an accident such as spilled beverages, deep stains or damage to the interior or exterior of the trailer; any damages such as these will first be taken out of the security deposit, and beyond that, claimed through your Outdoorsy trip insurance policy.)

BioLite wood burning grill and iPhone/pad charger + light Daily

These grills are so awesome, you use small amounts of wood like pine or mesquite and through the process of gasification it creates an intense heat to cook with all the while charging an onboard battery that power and cooking/reading light and your phone! There isn't a better way to cook. Comes with all utensils.

We did not pull “Dimples” anywhere on our trip! We were fishing and sight seeing in the Valles Caldera National Preserve and used the Airstream for our basecamp! The area is beautiful, and we had a great time. The Airstream has a lot of personality so we felt like we were coming home each day! The...

We had a really great experience with Michael and Dimples. My family and I planned a trip to northern New Mexico from Massachusetts in late August. Searching for some adventure for our family vacation, I came across Dimples. Having never used Outdoorsy, my wife and I were unsure about the...
