Click above for more images of the Airstream PanAmerica

Being able to complain that hauling your 34-foot Airstream around means leaving your full-dresser Harley at home for vacation strikes us as an enviable problem to have. For those of you with a surfeit of high-end toys and a longing to hit the road, Airstream has you covered with its new PanAmerica model. Being a high-end product itself, the PanAmerica sports Airstream's trademark aluminum construction and mid-century modern styling that ensures it's perpetually in vogue. The best part of the trailer, however, is that it sports a garage in its aft compartment that can swallow a pair of motorcycles, some ATVs, or our current favorite, a red Radio Flyer wagon. The garage has an 11-foot depth and is comprehensively equipped with tie downs and wheel clamps so your scooter will stay put while you drag everything over mountain passes.

The dragging part will require a pretty beefy tow vehicle. You'll want your pickup to have the largest available engine to cope with the 11,500-pound gross weight rating. Once you've docked your rig at camp, it's nothing but traditional Airstream class inside, meaning stainless appliances, indirect lighting, and snazzy cabinetry. It all looks like some kind of 1950's Brasserie, and if we had 85 large to drop on a jet-age home away from home (and a truck brawny enough to pull it), we'd be blogging from various bucolic undisclosed locations on a daily basis.

      We had a travel trailer when I was growing up. It was a lot of work. The R&R it promised to provide was more than offset by all the extra work it created. But this thing; tow it out to Utah, park it and explore all the incredible National Parks doing day trips on the R1200s conveniently located in the back. Now that's work/R&R I would be up for.

      Looks super sweet. Like the lines and the silver.
      I think the tie downs are great. It's a wonderful idea and I think it has so many other possibilities than just a bike hauler. I think you could really do anything you wanted with it.

      Not the greatest timing in the world.

      but what if the boot was big enough to swallow a Lotus 211 or an Ariel Atom? I think the airstream is cool. I know for a fact that when I am at the track or auto-x I am always looking for a place to get out of the sun.

      This is the most exciting news of the day... sarcasm... I'm all for mixing it up and having motorcycles and the like on here, but once you start having blogs about Air stream trailers and off road tent campers I get a little concerned you are stretching for something. Please stick to things that power themselves. Hell an plane posting would be interesting, but PLEASE No more Trailers.

        Why not? It's not like they're reviewing the new lineup of Traveland RVs for 2009 or going to RV Shows. This is a legitimate post that just happens to be about a trailer.

        A trailer that would be totally kickass to have, BTW.

        I must admit though, it is a nice trailer...

      Man, this is giving me ideas...

      Sell the house, buy a good tractor for something like this, maybe even something long enough to have an automotive-size flatbed for a sports car.

      Get an airstream like this, and a nice BMW R1200S in the bay, and get somewhat off the grid in the interior of the country.

      With some security measures... and satellite and cellular data services... just live out of it and move around this great country.

      Sweet trailer. It has a lot of upscale boat qualities e.g., high gloss interior, well laid-out stateroom, etc.

      However, you may want to tie-down the H-D's in a different manner as straps across the rear fender will not keep your prized possession from hitting the wall of one's other prized possession. I get the point of the photo-op but let's get a little more realistic.

      Hmmm...

      There is just something about dragging a toilet around that turns me off.
