Like many things these days, the AVION was found on Craigslist.
In 2009, it was driven down the coast to Big Sur from Oregon.
Not too much is known about its history, but whoever owned it took loving care of this trailer – everything from the Birchwood furniture to all the appliances were still functioning and in great condition.
The restorations that were made to the AVION included new flooring, new upholstery, new curtains, modernized lighting, new countertop trims and cabinet knobs.
An interesting story is that the company “AVION” was founded by some guys who quit working at AIRSTREAM in the 50’s because they wanted to build their own aluminum trailer – one that would be superior to the AIRSTREAM, of course!
Unfortunately, the AVION company does not exist anymore. At some point it was bought by FLEETWOOD, which is known for building plastic trailers.
The AVION “LA GRANDE” gets a lot of recognition for its spaciousness. Some guests’ first words upon entering the AVION have been: “Oh my god! This trailer is bigger than my studio apartment in Manhattan!”
With its well designed interior and plenty of room to enjoy, the AVION is a trailer that makes you want to extend your stay.
