Company owner, Dave set up the 25-foot Airstream trailer in an RV resort lot bordering Pismo Beach, CA.. It only took him about 20-30 minutes and he showed us how to work everything and all the cute features including the pull out pantry, retractable clothesline and awning. Next, he showed us how to work the sound system and where the camp furniture was stored. Along with everything you could possibly need for a vacation,Dave even provided beach towels along with all bedding and regular fluffy bath towels-along with extra coffee and basic cooking supplies. Even though it rained one day -it felt nice and bright in the Airstream thanks to the light colors and metal everywhere including all the appliances. He set up the propane barbeque, but we didn't use it. Renting an Airstream whether you tow it yourself or have Dave set it up is a much better idea than owning one as these are very high-end, expensive models which require care over the long term.
