Jackson Center, Ohio - Two of America’s iconic lifestyle brands, Airstream Inc. and Tommy Bahama have announced the expansion of their partnership with the release of a 19-foot Airstream Tommy Bahama Special Edition Travel Trailer.
After the successful launch earlier this year of the 28-foot Special Edition Travel Trailer and the Special Edition Touring Coach, the two brands broadened their collaboration and built a more nimble, coastal-inspired travel trailer.
“The Tommy Bahama brand embodies the same adventure-loving spirit and freedom as Airstream and we’re thrilled to expand on our partnership,” Airstream CEO Bob Wheeler says. "We created the 19-foot Tommy Bahama trailer to allow travelers to enjoy many of the outstanding features of the 28-foot special edition trailer, just in a smaller unit.”
“The launch of the first two Tommy Bahama Airstream models have been a tremendous success and are driving brand awareness for our guests who seek luxury, fun and relaxation,” Tommy Bahama CEO Doug Wood says. "We’re really excited about the addition of this smaller 19-foot Special Edition Travel Trailer. It offers another great option for those who have clearly shown a desire for the Tommy Bahama Airstream product.”
Inspired by a mutual appreciation for freedom, comfort, style and relaxation, the 19-foot trailer can sleep up to four people and comes with Tommy Bahama bedding to provide total comfort at the end of an adventurous day. Island-inspired aesthetic incorporates Tommy Bahama print designs and each travel trailer comes with a complimentary Tommy Bahama cooler, chairs and Marlin mug set.
In addition to the eye-catching island patterns, colors and materials, the Tommy Bahama trailer is loaded with thoughtful features and creature comforts. With a top-of-the-line entertainment center with Polk audio and custom plantation wood shutters and blinds, you’ll be ready for the weekend of your life – or a lifelong weekend, according to a press release.
The 19-foot Airstream Tommy Bahama Special Edition Travel Trailer has an MSRP of $75,900 and is available at dealers nationwide.
