There’s a reason why this 1967 Caravel 17' has been featured in an upcoming HGTV broadcast to be aired in the Fall of 2012 -- it's stunning. It's perfect as a mobile office for remote working in style, or a longterm road trip, or weekend beach outings, or even as a spare guestroom at home.
You will not find a more self-sustainable, simply elegant, efficient vintage Airstream with this level of quality, form and function. It's a breeze to pull with any mid-sized SUV or larger vehicle.
The solid hardwood flooring is a rich and warm redwood. Smooth white Zero VOC painted walls and laminated counter tops are accented by silver aluminum-edged cabinetry with turquoise blue acrylic drawer fronts. Sustainable 100% recycled white glass tiles wrap continuously from the kitchen to the bathroom.
This contemporary-styled Airstream is the "greenest" model Matt Hofmann has created, topped off with a set of flexible solar panels on the roof. The coolest part is they follow the aerodynamic curvature so they blend right in. The panels supply 270 watts of power that can be collected on a sunny day, and when it's cloudy there are three on-board batteries that provide ample renewable power storage for more than adequate work and entertainment. There's even an iPod/iPhone audio connection for high-quality indoor and outdoor sound.
The low window at the front of the trailer called for a custom solution for a functional workspace. A cooktop and stainless steel sink were custom designed and fabricated to rest above the countertop surface, the end result effect is that they seem to float above the surface of the counter. A design first, unlike any other on the market today.
The bathroom features our signature stand-up shower with generous lav seating. Modern stainless faucetry and deepset sink. A mirror faces a tall closet to store linens and such, that is directly adjacent to the bathroom entry door. Both custom crafted doors are constructed of water-resistant frosted plexiglass sheets mounted with stainless never-rusting hardware.
And here's something new... we added automated bed extensions so when it's time to crash the bed expands and retracts with the flip of a switch.
