Auction Block: Tom Hanks’ 1992 Airstream Model 34 Travel Trailer

Jul 22, 2021

Though Airstreams are immensely popular for the wanderlust that they inspire, hipster vagabonding is far from their only application. In fact, Tom Hanks used this exact Model 34 as his home away from home for nearly 30 years whilst shooting classics like Saving Private Ryan, Apollo 13, and Forrest Gump. And now he’s offering it for sale as part of Bonhams’ upcoming Quail Lodge auction.

Dissatisfied with the ugly decor and uncomfortable furniture common amongst most campers, Hanks purchased the Airstream new in 1993. However, rather than springing for a fully-furnished model, he ordered the trailer as a barebones shell, giving him full creative license to outfit the living arrangements as he saw fit. Apart from the kitchen and the bathroom, there are few built-ins around the inside. Instead, Hanks opted for a small desk, a cupboard, and a floor-mounted futon platform, enabling room for unique features like a standard-sized sofa, a fireplace, as well as a table and chairs. When you consider that it also includes his personal glassware, espresso makers, and various film mementos, the result is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of legendary movie memorabilia. Check it out at the link below, where it’s expected to fetch as much as $250,000.

Purchase: $150,000+
