The Rock'n Roadie takes you to a better time:

Calling all travelers who want an escape form the mundane! Our 1970 Airstream Travel Trailer has been tastefully restored keeping its original charm. Fully Stocked, heated, comfortable and unique.

Private space in Sugarhouse/South SLC backyard with outside "chill area" featuring Trex Deck, fenced around , clean gravel and seating with Glass N Flame fire pit and outdoor seating.

Place your skis in the private yard outside the Airstream.

The Airstream is a 1970 “Overlander Twin” model.

It’s 27’ in length and has tall ceilings for a camper (airstreams are shaped and made so well with Aircraft grade aluminum and construction techniques. So it feels similar to being in an airline cabin :)

Climate Temperature:

Even on the coldest winter nights, it is warm and heated with a 1500Watt Delonghi Electric Oil Filled Heater upfront, with digital thermostat upfront. The bathroom has a 700Watt electric oil filled heater, providing warm steady and stable heat all winter long.

In the summer, the Roof Mounted AC unit can be used to cool the space AND the portable Swamp cooler (you need to refill the basin using the side fill port) should be used to cool the space as well. 

NOTE: If you run the roof ac unit non stop on the coldest setting and don't allow it to rest/ be turned off for hours, it will freeze up the unit and potential cause irreversible damage. You should turn the ac unit off when you depart and leave the swamp cooler running only (with the water basin full, you can see the water level on the front and the coffee maker water fill container is perfect to do this with). When you return from your activities, you can then turn the AC on the roof to on and it will cool the space within 10-15 min to a nice temp. 

Airstreams on the summer can be hot, please follow these instructions and you will have a nice experience. Also, if you are using the AC unit at night while you sleep, please turn the temp dial to cool and not all the way on cold so the unit can rest and not freeze up. 

Sleeping Arrangements:

This unit features two beds and would most best be suited for 1-3 adults or possibly 2 adults and two children.

There is a twin bed along the galley which has a memory foam topper and is very comfortable.

Technically this is called an “RV Full” but to us it is most closely compared to a twin that one would have in their home.

It is best for those traveling together to be comfortable being close to one another, because this is after all “Tiny Living”

The front couch pulls out to become a second twin bed, and there is an additional memory foam topper for it found in the large closet across from the galley twin.

Appliances:

There is a 1.7 cubic feet mini fridge with freezer compartment. Small but large enough to hold your staples for a fee days at a time. (The larger fridge and freezer has a bad cooking element so the mini fridge will have to do).

The propane stove is available for use to cook up some quick food over. We send a “how to” video demonstrating how to turn in the burner and use it. We DON’T ALLOW COOKING OF particularly greasy or strong odor foods so there are not lingering odors for future guests- I’m looking at you BACON!

There is a built in microwave as well.

The oven is not to be used please (we have found that some guests don’t quite understand how to shut off the pilot for it and who is going to bake brownies in there anyways? :)

The water heater is brand new and heats 12 gallons at a time so long hot showers aren’t doable but a reasonable time shower is great :)

Tv:

We have an LED TV connected with Dish Network Satellite tv and hundreds of channels.

You will have your own private space in the back yard, Its fenced on 3 sides with the airstream itself as the 4th side, opening up to your own cute and private outdoor patio space. You can use the Propane Fire-pit as well (please leave us a couple bucks in the upper cabinet above the stove if you do to cover the propane use)

There will be adequate street parking out front of the house, and there is a single vehicle parking space located back by the airstream too (marked with railroad tie), so your things are close to you.

The neighborhood is a mix of single family and multifamily dwellings and is close to Freeway entrances, minutes from Restaurants, bars and entertainment in Nearby Desirable Sugarhouse as featured in Sunset Magazine.

It’s a cute little place but not kept. Whole thing smelt like a dirty toilet. Waited over an hour for ac to cool it down, no luck. Might have got down to 75-80. With the smell and the ac not doing well. We bought another hotel and ate the money. We told them the problems and have yet to hear a single response. Horrible customer service and not even an apology.

Definitely doesn’t fit more than 2 adults

Booking was so easy! When our departure was delayed a day, they found something else for us right away! I trust the service is a reflection of the accommodations!

The good:
It is adorable. Great decor. Homey.
Perfect for a night to get some sleep.
Beds are what you expect in an airstream, small & hard. This is just good to note.
Check in & out was easy
Owner was very commutative

Bad:
Only one pillow. Even though there were 2 beds.
No extra blankets.
(Luckily we had both with us)
Cabinet in the shower doesn't close and I hit my head on it thinking I closed it.

Overall, I would recommend for a night, maybe two.

The camper was exactly like the photos, except I couldn’t get over the musty smell and that there was a random mini fridge in the yard. It’s great for a short stay but due to the musty smell I would most likely not choose to stay there again.

I'm on a long road trip living out of my prius and right before I left, my car was broken into back home in California. A little bummed and scarred, staying at the airstream with the location and situation felt made me feel totally safe enough for me to leave all my things in my car for the night. Loved that everywhere I wanted to go was within a 10 minute drive, since the freeway is so close by.

Cute vintage airstream in a great location, a short drive to downtown. Has all the amenities you need for a short break, and stayed really warm, despite the cold weather! Feels very private, and can't beat the price. One thing to note is that neither of the beds can comfortably sleep two adults, so my husband and I slept on separate beds, not a big deal for us, but might be for some.

Stayed for 1 night in Oct passing through town. Trailer was super cute, exactly as pictured in listing. Site is much more private than I was expecting. Heater kept us very cozy. Walked a couple of blocks over to eat at great taco place, Taco Land, and then enjoyed sunset at Liberty Park a couple miles away. This is a vintage airstream, so the bed is small but there was also a futon kind of couch that could also be used. We didnt notice any issue with smell, but it haf been cool when we were there. For the price this cannot be beat for accomadarion in Salt Lake City!

Sunset at nearby Liberty Park

Cool vintage Airstream, comfy bed and couch with cool decor. Just remember you are staying in a vintage Airstream, don't expect power outlets everywhere or having a large bathroom. It was exactly as I had hoped for
