AT&T and Airstream Launch ‘Smart’ RV

Transforming Camping with the Most High-Tech, Connected Travel Trailer on the Road

Dallas, Texas (September 19, 2018) –What if you could go camping and still stay connected in the great outdoors?

We’ve teamed with Airstream to bring 4G LTE connectivity to the iconic Airstream Silver Bullet. It’s an industry first and AT&T* is the exclusive wireless provider.

The groundbreaking feature launches in 2019 model Airstream Classic travel trailers. AT&T data plans start at $25 per month for 5 gigabytes of monthly data.[1] Or for $360 get 1 year of unlimited data.[2]

With the connected Airstream Classic, you stay in touch with family and friends. Or take your office on your next camping trip.

There’s no longer any reason to miss anything when you’re unwinding at the campsite. Connect your smartphone or tablet to the Airstream’s powerful Wi-Fi hotspot. And remotely monitor and control temperature, lighting, and more through the Smart Control mobile app.

“The Internet of Things is transforming the way we work and play every day,” said Chris Penrose, President, IoT Solutions, AT&T. “We’re making it easier to stay connected and bring the conveniences of home – even while you’re out camping with friends or family.”

“Digital technology has improved almost every aspect of our lives,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “Shouldn’t it make camping better, too? We think so. That’s why we’re leading the way with our new Smart Control Technology and connectivity solution, starting with our Airstream Classic travel trailers.”

Smart Control gives you:

  • More control — Remotely monitor and control indoor temperature, propane tanks, battery power, water levels, lighting, awnings, ventilation and more through the mobile app.
  • Connectivity — Connect to 10 smartphones, tablets and smart TVs to your Airstream’s Wi-Fi. Stream music, watch your favorite TV shows and stay connected to family and friends.
