4. Airstream trailers get better MPG than other trailers
When Airstream founder, Wally Byam built the Airstream bach in the 1930s, he knew that the Airstream had to be aerodynamic. It had to have distinctive slippery curves compared to clunky squared curves as most other trailers had back then.
In 2014, Airstream published an infograph on their website explaining the history of Airstream’s aerodynamics. In the very bottom of the infograph, it’s mentioned that the aerodynamics saves up to 20% fuel compared to other trailers.
Let’s say you were to drive across the U.S. That’s around 6.000 miles. If you’re getting 10 MPG and fuel costs $0.9 pr. gallon. Then you’d spend $5.400 on gas. If you had an Airstream that saved you 20% fuel instead, you’d save around $1.080 in pure gas.
Most camping trailers nowadays are built to be aerodynamic but Airstream does it very well when it comes to saving fuel. It’s definitely worth a thought when looking for an Airstream rental.
