Just as Volkswagen Westfalias are the fashionable darlings of campervan travel, Airstreams are the haute-hauls of trailer travel. 

Dating back to the late 1920's, Airstreams are iconic Americana. And today, they're trendier than ever. Vintage models can run you tens of thousands of dollars. And even then, you might need to gut it down to the rivets. Luckily, you need not own an Airstream to enjoy a holiday steeped in nostalgia. Here are six Airbnbs that will have you California dreamin' for kitschier times.
