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 :)
