With their classic Silver Bullet shape Airstream trailers are an iconic part of the American landscape. They’ve come a long way since Wally Byam first put a tent on top of a Model T Ford Chassis in 1929! Given that a brand new Airstream might set you back up to $150,000 (*gulp*) renting one before you buy – or just skipping the buying part altogether – makes a lot of sense.
Keen travellers, festival goers and experienced business owners, David Pratt and his wife Brandi live on the edge of the beautiful Coachella Valley in Southern California. They were sitting with friends one day discussing how they still loved attending festivals but how they felt that their days of ‘dirt camping’ were done. Although they didn’t really want to ‘dirt camp’ any longer they also didn’t want to miss out on the festival experience completely by checking into a hotel. Soon enough the seedling of a genius idea was starting to germinate…
What if there was an option for Airstream rental in Southern California? What if that Airstream rental in Southern California gave renters the option of hiring a reliable tow vehicle, or to skip out on the towing altogether and just have the trailer delivered to the campsite or music festival that they wanted to go to? What if there was an Airstream rental in Southern California that could come with everything needed for an amazing vacation? And what if – with that Airstream rental in Southern California – renters could order something extra special if they needed to…? Like their wife’s favorite wine and a huge bunch of flowers for a special anniversary?
Well, check, check and check!
We wanted to hear more so we got in touch with David to ask a few questions….
What’s great about your set-up?
We offer Airstream rental in Southern California – which was very much a gap in the market. Silver Bullet offers three different options – each one includes an Airstream travel trailer which is fully equipped and has the ability to sleep up to six people. The amenities included in each unit are pretty much what you would expect to find in a luxury hotel. The kitchen comes fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, serve ware and stemware. The bathroom has enough towels for six people and, if you’re tired when you get there, the bedroom is all ready with linens for your head to hit the (provided, fabulously soft) pillow!
The three options are firstly, full service delivery and set up. This is ideal if you’ve got a specific destination in mind and you don’t fancy towing and setting up the Airstream when you get to your campsite. You just need to let us know where the campsite is (and when you’ve booked it for!). We then deliver and completely set up the Airstream. When your stay is over, you just lock the door and drive away!
The second option is pick up and go. You just come and pick up an Airstream at our base in Coachella. We do a quick inspection of the tow vehicle but we go through everything that’s needed ahead of time so this should be fairly straightforward. You then simply tow the Airstream wherever you choose. We know our area inside out and back to front, so we can provide plenty of suggestions if people are unsure of which direction to head in!
Finally, we can rent the Airstream plus a tow vehicle which we know is matched perfectly to the trailer. We have a couple of different truck options for renters. This is a great option for people considering buying a trailer for themselves, or who just want the full Airstream experience!
Whereabouts are you?
We are located in Indio, California. In the heart of the Coachella Valley close to Palm Springs.
What do you love about Airstreams?
I love Airstreams for so many reasons! First of all they are top of the line for luxury travel. They’re built to last and the maintenance is easy compared to other travel trailers I’ve had in the past. Airstreams are also very easy to tow, my wife and I are both comfortable towing our Airstreams. Finally, the set up and tear down can be done in minutes which allows for more time enjoying the company of your family and kids.
Do you have an Airstream yourself?
What would you advise someone thinking of booking an Airstream vacation?
Go for it! You don’t even need to worry about being somewhere warm (although we’re lucky to be in Southern California). Airstreams are built to handle any type of weather and can survive anything from cold snowy mountains to warm sunny beaches. This makes them a perfect solution for anyone’s holiday destinations. No matter where you’re looking to travel, Airstreams will keep you comfortable no matter what your ambient conditions are.
What’s the most commonly asked question about glamping with you?
We always get asked “What can we do with this Airstream and where can we go?” and the answer is anything and everywhere! Typically I take the time to get to know the client and ask them a few questions about what their interests are and places they would like to see before I help them answer the question themselves. Most people love the idea of taking an Airstream to venture into the great outdoors, however they just aren’t exactly sure what they want to do. Usually, after getting to know the person a little bit, I’m able to use my knowledge and experience of all of the different places I’ve been to in order to help them know where to go… and, of course, what to do when they get there.
When did you start the business?
We started in 2016
Is it your first business or what did you do before?
No, this is our fourth startup business. Between my wife and I, we do real estate, Run a USDA certified organic farm, and own and operate a hair salon.
What is your favourite place to go camping?
It is hard to name one specific place because we’re always exploring and going to new places. However, some of the places and activities we love to attend include Joshua Tree National Forest, Big Bear, Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone. Our annual trips every year always include our favorite festivals like Burning Man, Coachella, Stagecoach Music Festival and Desert Trip Festival. We also always seem to find ourselves in one of our Airstreams at the Beach in San Diego at least once a year.
Freestyle – tell us something that isn’t public knowledge!
If it’s not public already, then it is probably meant to stay that way!
