This 31' International model shows Airstream's aluminum construction, a signature of its travel trailers. Because of this construction material, much of an Airstream travel trailer is recyclable.

This 19' International features a more modest floorplan, but many of the same amenities as its longer brethren.

The modern Airstream travel trailer comes with a Samsung LCD television over the dinette. All interior lighting comes from LEDs, which use less electricity and last longer than incandescent lamps, especially when subjected to the rigors of the road.
