The only thing better than a Palm Springs vacation home might be one that you can take with you when wanderlust strikes. This charming 1966 Airstream Safari, which has been lovingly restored by realtor (and vintage expert) , offers a stylish getaway on wheels. Though you might think a trailer can't be as glam as a midcentury pad, the period-perfect details will make you reconsider your stance.
"Airstreams represent so much to so many people," Reader says. "For me, it's partly the nostalgia of youth and a passion for seeing the country. I've loved them since I was a little kid, trailer-camping with my parents."
Reader originally purchased the Safari 18 months ago. The living, sleeping, and dining area had been gutted, and it took about 14 months to get the trailer back into shape. "The interior is bright and happy. I used panels with gold leaf squares in the cabinets for great indirect lighting — it's spectacular how it sparkles inside at night. The cabinets are walnut, and are a reconstruction of what was likely there when it was built," he says.
Modern-day additions include the fabulous Trina Turk fabrics, along with conveniences like the microwave, LED lighting, and a refrigerator.
