The excellence of Airstream comes at a hefty cost, but if the twin-axle Colorado caravan is for you, your investment will keep you happy for years.
Whether you think it’s a Marmite ‘love it / hate it’ look or not, the design is flawless. If it’s not for you, that’s one thing, but there’s no denying how many heads are going to turn on the road and the pitch.
When not in bed-mode, the fully-adjustable telescopic table pops up for convenience, but it’s in the kitchen where the Colorado stands out. Bring the heat with a Dometic three-burner hob, oven and grill, and chill out with the Dometic 190-litre fridge or 35-litre freezer compartment (even better than the Missouri’s 110-litre fridge and 12-litre freezer). The kitchen workshop offers plenty of prep space, with deep draining grooves for easy cleaning into the stainless-steel Franke sink.
Sleeping four, the Colorado features a front double bed made up from the lounge seating and measuring in at 2.19m by 1.37m, with a rear double – a fixed transverse – sized 1.85m by 1.41m.
Separating the sleeping space and the kitchen, opposite a good-sized wardrobe, the Colorado’s frosted-window washroom comes complete with a centrally heated stainless-steel radiator, for cosy cleaning courtesy Alde excellence.
On the fence about value, here. At £91,995, nobody’s pretending that this Airstream isn’t a phenomenal spend. That said, if you’re after the silver bullet styling and incredible living space contained within, you know what you’re getting for your money. If the Colorado is above your budget, the single-axle four-berth Missouri could be yours for £13,500 less.
