Matthew McConaughey, a Rich Celebrity, Has Expensive Hobby (An Airstream)

Matthew McConaughey should make you feel badly about yourself. He’s a nice guy, albeit an idiot, with no actual acting “talent” to speak of. So he takes his millions of dollars and lives on the beach in Malibu in a custom Airstream trailer and does frat guy beach things all day – BBQ, goes running with his shirt off for the paparazzi, plays frisbee with his dog, and then goes inside to his brutally hot girlfriend, Camila Alves. Am I jealous? Of course. My life is pretty much identical, but my house hasn’t been featured in Architectural Digest ever since Mr. Levitt built it. And McConaughey’s Airstream trailer is in AD’s November issue. The article is mostly fluff, but focuses on how McConaughey enjoys cruising around the country in his Ford King Ranch with the Airstream in tow (F-150? F-250? AD doesn’t say). One of the article captions really sums up how much sense it all makes: “The thing about small spaces is that they’re relaxing,” says McConaughey. “You’re limited in your options.” He is now customizing two more Airstreams.”

    Seems Jim Rockford of the "Rockford Files" had this living arrangement idea all figured out years ago. Perhaps the overpaid / overmedia-hyped actor happened to catch the show and copy the idea? I'd be more impressed if this "actor" had a restored mid 70's GMC K10 shortbox for his tow vehicle......

    Well, I'll grant you he's no Paul Newman. Charity, acting chops, car guy etc. But he does look good running without his shirt. And his Airstream is cool, but not in that order.

  • FreedMike That wagon is yummy.
  • Syke Thanks, somehow I missed that.
  • 285exp I am quite sure that it is a complete coincidence that they have announced a $7k price increase the same week that the current administration has passed legislation extending the $7k tax credit that was set to expire. Yep, not at all related.
  • Syke Is it possible to switch the pure EV drive on and off? Given the wonderful throttle response of an EV, I could see the desirability of this for a serious off-roader. Run straight ICE to get to your off-roading site, switch over the EV drive during the off-road section, then back to ICE for the road trip back home.
  • ToolGuy Historical Perspective Moment:• First-gen Bronco debuted in MY1966• OJ Simpson Bronco chase was in 1994• 1966 to 1994 = 28 years• 1994 to now = 28 yearsFeel old yet?
