Airstream’s bullet-like Overlander is an icon of the 20th century with as much of a cult following today as it had in 1974 when this one rolled off the production line.
Interiors of the midcentury trailer have been modernised via parquet oak flooring finished with shou sugi ban and white Osmo oil, and a bespoke U-shaped bench is built into the caravan’s curved edge to create seating. Meanwhile, the fully fitted kitchen has lightweight terrazzo worktops and poplar cabinetry – as well as a Gaggenau two-pan 200 series induction hob and electric 400 series oven, and an 80-litre fridge with freezer.
Sliding doors separate the main area from the bedroom, where there’s a full-size double bed and bespoke, lightweight poplar cabinetry. A second sleeping area can be fashioned in the Airstream’s living room via the hydraulic operated dining table, which converts into a bed.
Gear operated windows and touch-control steps are original, as is the Zip Dee awning.
Meanwhile, the chassis and all-riveted shell and steel undercarriage are fully restored, though the 8.2-ft-wide caravan is not suitable for life on the road. Instead, it could be guest accommodation, a holiday let or glitzy work from home set up with entertainment built-in.
