JACKSON CENTER, Ohio — Airstream and AT&T have joined forces to offer the more 4G LTE data plans specifically designed for any Airstream vehicle, the company announced today.

The two companies already enable 2019 Airstream Classic travel trailers with embedded 4G LTE connectivity for Wi-Fi hotspots and more.

Now, with Airstream Connected, any Airstream travel trailer or touring coach on the road today, can add this feature to stay connected in the great outdoors with AT&T data plans, the company noted.

The solution includes an external, high-gain roof-mounted antenna, mobile router, and an embedded GPS locator. Customers also can manage connectivity settings, use integrated arrival and departure checklists, and connect with Airstream technical support — all through the Airstream Connected mobile app.

“Our owners view their Airstream as a home-away-from-home and connectivity is part of so many households today,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler.

“Solving for this in a mobile environment brings the flexibility to stay connected with family and friends, offers increased peace of mind, and provides the ability to work from anywhere,” he added. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with AT&T to revolutionize the camping experience for every Airstream owner.”

“With IoT connectivity, we’re making it easier for people to stay connected and bring the conveniences of home to just about anywhere,” said Chris Penrose, president of IoT Solutions for AT&T.

“Recreational vehicles are the next frontier for connected vehicles, bringing with them a whole new audience. We’re pleased to continue our exclusive relationship to provide connectivity for the most iconic RV manufacturer,” said Penrose.

Research shows that when campers have a reliable connection to the internet, they stay longer in the great outdoors and venture out more frequently, the release noted.

Airstream Connected is offered exclusively through Airstream’s United States dealer network and requires professional installation.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the Airstream Connected hardware is $999. Installation, taxes, and data plans require an additional cost.
