Airstream 30FB Office Travel Trailer Perfect for Working From Anywhere

Airstream recently released its Flying Cloud 30FB Office floor plan, putting dedicated office space in its most popular product line. Replacing a sleeping area with office space, the idea was formulated due to the growing popularity of working remotely and the idea of digital nomadism.

At 30 feet in length, the 30FB Office is a double-axle travel trailer that weighs in at 6,757 pounds, with a maximum trailer capacity (GVWR) of 8,800 pounds, making it towable with a 3/4-ton pickup. With a queen bed, bench, and a convertible dinette, the 30FB Office still provides room for six to sleep, and the starting price is $107,500.

This version differs from Airstream’s standard 30FB with its dedicated workspace. It has an office chair that can be tucked out of the way, allowing for one person to sleep or relax, and while it contains things you’d expect in an office like storage and drawers, there are a divider and black-out curtains to provide separation while Zoom conferencing, and three windows for a view of the outdoors. Additionally, there are multiple USB ports, a pull-out table for more workspace, grommets on the desk to mount a monitor or organize cables, and overhead storage cabinets with dry-erase surfaces.

Bob Wheeler, Airstream President and CEO said, “Airstream has always provided the freedom of a mobile living, playing, and working space, but the Flying Cloud 30FB Office takes that promise to the next level with flexibility and comfort in a design inspired by real-world experience. We learned a lot – not only about the necessity of connectivity and options for increased power, but about the joy of closing your laptop and stepping out onto the trail. They’d found a seamless transition between work and play and travel, and we wanted to find a way to bring the unique freedom of this work from anywhere lifestyle to the community, as well as to new audiences.”

With a father who owned a dealership, I literally grew up in the business. After college, I worked for GM, Nissan and Mazda, writing articles for automotive enthusiast magazines as a side gig. I discovered you could make a living selling ad space at Four Wheeler magazine, before I moved on to selling TV for the National Hot Rod Association. After that, I started Roadhouse, a marketing, advertising and PR firm dedicated to the automotive, outdoor/apparel, and entertainment industries. Through the years, I continued writing, shooting, and editing. It keep things interesting.

    I know a couple who are living the nomadic lifestyle right now with their 8-year-old and two cats. They considered a trailer like this one and a truck, but decided the combination was too expensive. Instead they got a lightly used ProMaster-based motorhome. I honestly can't believe they're all spending months on the road in such a small vehicle, but they seem happy.

    I've spent my entire life doing things the wrong way. But I always bring 50% more truck than legally required to do the job. Is it why I'm still here?

  • Tassos Most people here who think it is a good idea have NO idea how much such a conversion costs. Hint: MORE than buying an entire new car.
  • Zipper69 Current radio ads blare "your local Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealer" and the facias read the same. Is the honeymoon with FIAT over now the 500 and big 500 have stopped selling?
  • Kjhkjlhkjhkljh kljhjkhjklhkjh hmmm get rid of the garbage engine in my chevy, and the garbage under class action lawsuit transmission? sounds good to me
  • ToolGuy Personally I have no idea what anyone in this video is talking about, perhaps someone can explain it to me.
  • ToolGuy Friendly reminder of two indisputable facts: A) Winners buy new vehicles (only losers buy used), and B) New vehicle buyers are geniuses (their vehicle choices prove it):
