Airstream has long been famous for its classic shiny camper trailers that can be parked along the smooth dirt driving paths of campsites that have hook-ups for electricity and plumbing. But now it has come out with its four-wheel-drive off-road camper van for those who want to get even further off the beaten path.
With the Interstate 24X, Airstream is venturing into territory that was, up to now, mostly occupied by start-ups that specialize in making campers for Overlanding and boondocking. This means real wilderness camping, which has gained in popularity during the Covid pandemic.
With a starting price of about $214,000, the Interstate 24X has knobby off-road tires and all-wheel-drive, allowing it to crawl along muddy rutted trails with less chance of getting stuck. Its sheer size as the name implies, it’s 24 feet long could prevent it from getting too deep into the woods, but it’s designed to venture further into the forests or deserts than Airstream’s other camper vans.
