Airstream Teams Up with Pottery Barn on a Second Capsule Collection

Airstream x Pottery Barn 2.0 Capsule Collection

Americans can’t get enough of RV’ing right now. More of us are camping and road-tripping now than at any other time in history. If you’re part of the club, you’ve no doubt figured out the essentials you need for every RV road trip. But maybe it’s time to upgrade the look of your travel trailer. The latest capsule collection from Airstream and furniture brand Pottery Barn has the perfect (mobile) home décor for giving your home away from home a handsome makeover.

The Airstream x Pottery Barn 2.0 Collection debut is a follow-up to a previous partnership between Airstream and Pottery Barn. “We are excited to unveil a second collection which reflects the idea that home is wherever our customers are, while drawing on the wanderlust and sense of adventure that Airstream ensues,” said Pottery Barn President Marta Benson. This is one for current Airstream owners and hopeful future owners. “Whether you own an Airstream or are just dreaming of an adventure, the pieces in this collection combine style, functionality, and the comforts of home.”

This latest collection expands the original Airstream x Pottery Barn Collection with more than 40 unique home décor pieces, including bedding, dinnerware, linens, barware, rugs, style-forward storage, and indoor/outdoor pillows. The overall aesthetic is crisp, clean, luxurious, and timeless — a deft blend of both the Pottery Barn and Airstream brands. Bright whites and beachy colorways adorned with playful artwork and whimsical scribblings are perfect for elevating the look and fun factor of any modern home on wheels.

Beyond the handsome design, there’s also a clear focus on sustainability. Materials in the Airstream Pacifica Indoor/Outdoor Rug and Airstream Coronado Striped Indoor/Outdoor Pillow, for example, are sourced from recycled plastic bottles. Bedding in this latest capsule collection, like the Airstream Cambria Textural Cotton Comforter and Shams, is OEKO-TEX-certified non-toxic. So, it’s free of harmful chemicals and sourced from sustainable cotton. That means it’s not only healthier for you, but for your family and pets, too.

Every product was also carefully designed to be functional, sturdy, and easy to clean. The Airstream Pacifica Indoor/Outdoor Towels — emblazoned with “The Good Life” and “Always Home” sentiments — are packable and fast-drying. The selection of outdoor dinnerware has expanded to include the Enamel 6-Piece Dinnerware Set, Big Sur Flask with Magnetic Tumblers, and the Airstream Picnic Backpack. All are lightweight and plenty durable for life on the road.

The entire Airstream x Pottery Barn Collection is now available on, with prices ranging from $12 to $899.

A spectacular sunrise at Corazón Cabo Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

When I say Cabo, what comes to mind? Let me guess: You’re thinking of spring break revelers, rowdy bar crawls, late-night club dates, and day-long booze cruises, right? Well, what if I told you that Cabo San Lucas offers much more beyond the bars? And what if I told you that there’s a chic boutique hotel right by Cabo’s most swimmable beach that helps you dive right into everything that Cabo has to offer inside and out?

Yes, such a place exists in Los Cabos. It’s called Corazón Cabo Resort & Spa, and we’re about to explore why it offers a different kind of base camp for a different kind of Cabo trip.

There are ways to get through security and to your gate faster, but they will cost you
Airport security barriers with long line in background

Raise your hand if you like waiting in security lines at the airport. What, no one? Well, that’s probably not surprising considering a poll of 2,000 travelers by travel comparison site Cheapflights found waiting in line was Americans’ least favorite part of airport security. That came in ahead of other unpleasantries such as taking off your shoes and coat and being patted down by TSA personnel.

Even though 31% of those surveyed said long lines were at the top of the list of most dreaded airport security experiences, 54% of those who had flown in the last 90 days reported having been caught in a long security line recently, and 7% had even missed a flight because of it.

One-bag travel: 7 must-know tips to pack everything you need in a carry on
Travel tips for packing light so you can avoid airport stress
About to board a flight.

These days, searching for travel tips to help mitigate travel chaos is the norm (even more so than usual) thanks to a combination of factors that arose largely as a result of COVID. I experienced it firsthand in August when I arrived at the notoriously overwhelmed Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, where I found thousands of lost bags stacked all over the place. Then, while flying from there to Istanbul, my own backpack joined the league of lost luggage, though I was able to track it down.

I had a premonition (from the stacks of lost bags, perhaps?) that I should have trimmed my backpack down a bit better, thereby allowing myself to travel carry-on only, but I decided that I couldn’t live without a bunch of stuff that I definitely didn’t need. I’ve traveled for a decade solid, so I definitely should have known better. With that in mind, here are a few travel tips that will help with packing light and packing right so that you can achieve one-bag travel and limit the odds of your stuff going missing on your flight.
