Airstream and AT&T have joined forces to offer the more 4G LTE data plans specifically designed for any Airstream vehicle.
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 can add this feature to stay connected with AT&T data plans.
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 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 Bob Wheeler, Airstream president and CEO. “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. 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 at AT&T. “RVs 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.”
Airstream Connected is offered exclusively through Airstream’s U.S. dealer network and requires professional installation. MSRP for the Airstream Connected hardware is $999. Installation, taxes, and data plans additional.
