From 1993 to 2017, Tom Hanks’s home away from home while on set was his custom Airstream trailer. Now, the iconic camper is heading to auction.
Bonhams will offer the 65-year-old actor’s 1992 Model 34 Limited Excella travel trailer as part of its annual Quail’s Lodge Auction in Carmel, California next month. The two-time-Oscar winner did everything to make sure his Airstream really was a home on wheels, even going so far as to have it equipped with a cozy fireplace.
Tired of staying in generic movie set trailers in the early ‘90s, Hanks decided to commission his own aluminum-covered Airstream. The resulting trailer, which was used for movies ranging from 1993’s Sleepless in Seattle to 2017’s The Circle, came with a built-in kitchen and bathroom, and nothing else. The rest was filled with furniture and amenities of Hanks’s choosing, including a full-size sofa with no legs so that it could fit through the door, a small (artificial) fireplace, a bed and a patio set for lounging outside.
