About this listing
Due to the overwhelming response to The AIRSTREAM VINTAGE TRAILER EXPERIENCE
(https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/820227) featuring the restored 1957 AIRSTREAM 22' FLYING CLOUD model we have tricked out another vintage Airstream for another new and different experience.
Featured here is the recently restored 1971 AIRSTREAM 28' 'SOVEREIGN OF THE ROAD' trailer.
This INTERNATIONAL model was the Cadillac of trailers in it's day.
Straight out of the 'MadMen' era, this silver slipper boasts sleeping for up to FOUR (4) PERSONS on ONE (1) DOUBLE and TWO (2) SINGLE BEDS..
All quality linens and towels are provided.
The rear BATHROOM is equipped with a toilet, sink, and a small combination tub/ shower.
The galley has a gas range-top, oven, refrigerator and double sink.
A gas FURNACE provides comfort heating on chilly nights.
All pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, coffee, sugar, salt/ peppar, some spices and olive oil are provided for cooking
The Airstream is tucked into a meadow area under a pine tree on our 20+ acre property and is extremely private and tranquil with 180 degree mountain views.
Outstanding hiking is available to a private (seasonal) waterfall, or on the world renowned 60 mile long "Backbone Trail" adjacent the property. Sweeping Pacific Ocean views are just a 10 minute walk or take the 5 mile drive to the beaches galore!
Dark skies at night provide exceptional star and meteor shower gazing opportunities.
Just one caveat- your privacy could be interrupted by a surprise visit from our overly friendly goat or horse family!
Previous guests report that it's all good though!!
Swimming pool is available for guest use during summer months.
Interaction with Guests
After check-in guests will enjoy a very private experience, with minimal interaction, although hosts are readily available on the property.
CAMPFIRES ARE NOT PERMITTED BY LAW DUE TO HIGH RISK OF WILDFIRES. SMOKING IS ALSO NOT PERMITTED.
Pick up your groceries before you leave the center of Malibu at Ralph's ( Webb Way), Pavillion's (Heathercliff), or Vintage Grocers at Trancas Canyon (Best).
If coming from 101 shop at Trader Joes on Thousand Oaks Blvd, or Vons and Sprouts on Agoura Road/Westlake Blvd.
We are 6.5 miles from any grocery stores and the fresh air WILL make you hungry! If you plan on eating prior to arrival there are lots of choices in Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village.
My granddaughter and I stayed for three nights and had the most relaxing quality time together. The Airstream was everything as described.
Absolutely wonderful experience! Perfectly beautiful and peaceful location in the Malibu hills. The airstream is quite spacious, nicely decorated and well equipped. It easily accommodated our group of four. And there are lots of fun board games! I would highly recommend staying a couple of nights.
The trailer is parked in a nicely shaded spot. With the windows open, there was plenty of cross ventilation. It was cool enough to leave our little dogs inside while we ventured out into the hot July mid day sun.
Murray was the most gracious host. He drove my friend's car up to the trailer because she was afraid to drive up the steep dirt road. And he did it twice! Thank you Murray!
A wonderful place and a great host. We hope to come back soon!
A great 3 days in the California outdoors- everything is as portrayed on the website and we enjoyed some great days on the nearby Malibu beaches.
The airstream is in an idyllic location, the perfect start to our Cali adventure! We took the hike up the back for stunning views. The airstream was cosy, especially as the evening was a little chilly (for us soft Aussies), and had everything we needed. Blankets to prolong the outdoor dining experience were a great touch! Thanks!
Even though it was only for one night, we had a great time staying at the airstream. It was charming and had everything we could need. We enjoyed the short climb to watch the sunset and the early morning visit from the horses. Murray was quick to respond when we had questions. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an off the beaten path experience.

About the Host, Murray & Kay
My wife and I are Christian, semi-retired film industry people who thrive on adventure and meeting interesting people. Over the past 13 years I've restored several vintage Airstream trailers and consider them the ultimate in camping comfort. One of my restorations now actually resides in Japan!
We used to love to travel and camp in our 1957 'FLYING CLOUD' AIRSTREAM but now enjoy allowing others to share the experience without the hassle of driving, towing and fighting for a spot in a crowded and noisy campground. We live on a 20+ acre ranch property (with some overly friendly goats, dogs and horses) in the Santa Monica Mountains- surrounded by thousands of acres of open space and direct access to the famous Backbone Trail, which is renowned for hiking, horseback and mountain bike riding. We are also only 6 miles from the glorious beaches of Malibu. Our hilltop location is the perfect deluxe camping experience, with ocean views, and base to enjoy this unique mountain range and Mediterranean climate which occurs in only 6 places in the world.
