JACKSON CENTER, OH – April 22, 2020 – Airstream, Inc., maker of the iconic “silver bullet” fleet of Airstream®  travel trailers and best-in-class touring coaches, is launching a content program that will bring spectacular scenery and landscapes from the nation’s most breathtaking public lands directly into American homes.

“We all know the health benefits of getting out in nature while connecting with friends and family,” said Bob Wheeler, Airstream President and CEO. “Since we currently can’t go to Yellowstone, Airstream will transport us all to America’s first national park.”

Yellowstone, the first installment in the Portable Park series, will debut on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day to remind viewers of the importance of protecting our natural wonders. Other Portable Park content alongside the loopable Yellowstone video is a guide to Yellowstone’s top-rated campgrounds to help plan your next visit and original writing celebrating the iconic park.

Portable Park is an excellent way to share that sense of joy and inspiration in a new way.”
