About this RV

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 :)

Lots to say about this trip and experience. First off the scenery and location is convenient to all types of sites and outdoor activity. Cool little community in a tucked away corner of the world that is preserved and beautiful. The host Mike who also owns a great pizza place is the icing on the cake great guy with great ideas. Will return to Jemez Springs again and stay in Dimples. 5 stars

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 weather had changed to a chilly fall so we didnot have a campfire every evening, only once!

Michael was friendly efficient and we felt available if we needed anything!

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 process and nervous about the outcome of our trip. Our fears were allayed with Michael's friendliness and…

I can't put in to words how accommodating Micheal was. We had multiple issues arise with our tow vehicle and were ready to call off the vacation. Micheal Helped us find a repair shop and insisted we take his High Country Chevy(awesome). Micheal was very thorough when going over camper operations/towing giving us the confidence needed to complete our first camper trip. Dimples was cute,cool, and a big hit at the camp ground. Ever since we dropped dimples off I've been dreaming vintage airstream.

We took Michaels Airstream "Dimples" down to Cape Hatteras, NC and had an amazing time. Michael set up everything and got me ready and prepared for what I needed to know. Even with my wife, almost 8 months pregnant, I felt confident setting out on a 6 hour drive. We cruised peacefully out of Ft. Washington and took the back roads as much as we could down to NC. And it was amazing how people on…
