Enter Airstream 2 Go, a new business started by Dicky Riegel, a former Airstream chief executive, with the aim of allowing everyone from curious tourists to diehard Airstream fans to rent one. Riegel was with Airstream for 16 years – “cut me and I bleed silver” he says – and realised there was an untapped market. “Anytime anybody discovered I had anything to do with Airstream, they would ask me, ‘How do I rent one?’ ”

Airstream has symbolized travel in America since 1931, but it wasn’t until Airstream 2 Go was formed in June 2013 that travelers could rent Airstream’s popular trailers. 

Airstream 2 Go has understandably received a lot of attention since founder and CEO Dicky Riegel first introduced the company to the public. The company is based in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, with a seasonal station in Bozeman, Mont. It offers 23-foot and 28-foot Airstream models for rent, complete with a GMC Yukon Denali as a tow vehicle.

Airstream rentals

Airstream's iconic chrome trailers were the aristocrats of the RV park when road trip culture was at its zenith and stylish travelers still spent more time in their cars than the Admiral's Club. A lot has changed since the 1950s – the once swanky term "recreational vehicle" now sounds déclassé – but a bit of shiny modernism still turns heads.

Dicky Riegel loves Airstreams so much that one of his isn't even mobile; the former CEO of the company that makes them converted an Airstream Bambi into his pool house. (His other Aistream is a 1954 Flying Cloud, which he tows with his 1954 Chevrolet truck.) Trailed by the question "How can I rent one?"
