Keeping it within Thor RV Family Group.

The result of a 'what if' collaboration between two expert design teams, the Airstream Studio F. A. Porsche
Concept Travel Trailer is a lightweight, garageable travel trailer concept that addresses the changing world
of RV adventure.

Wonder if you can lower it when you come to Peage Tolls and sneak under the 2.00 metre gantry?

It's a bit of a shame there isn't an actual photograph of this thing.

CGI sucks, especially when it isn't all that good.

Concept Design & Marketing only Pepé Le Pew.... Yes, if produced it will no doubt be expensive.

What I found interesting; Thor's use of its Halo product (Airstream) to market this 'concept'
lightweight trailer, gauge public interest of what is obviously a Hymer Group Eriba product
wrapped in Airstream Aluminium. Thor purchased Erwin Hymer group for many reasons, a
1st in collaborative concept ideas I've seen. I think Airstream are once again questioning
direction to lightweight trailers, in looking towards European brands. Nothing new here,
not Airstreams 1st rodeo.

In 1953, Wally Byam shipped his Airstream to Europe. He made arrangements to have a
Volkswagen van ready as his tow vehicle. First and foremost, he was there to attend the
International Trailer Rally, an annual event that was to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The European trailers were cute and small, with practical floorplans. Wally wanted to review
the trailers, looking for engineering applications. Wally also met with a number of European
manufacturers. He befriended many, in finding kindred spirits.

One acquaintance in particular became a lifelong friend. Hans Knöbel and his family owned
Westfalia Werke in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany. The factory produced travel trailers, utility
trailers, best known worldwide for their Volkswagen van conversions, sold as Kombi Camper.

Wally Byam was committed to continuously improving Airstream frequently reminding his team,
“Let's not make changes. Let's make only improvements." Something Airstream Evokes today.

Well done Eriba/Hymer for the inspiration, and Airstream/Porsche for this Concept. Brilliant !
