There's nothing quite like a beautiful silver Airstream shimmering in the open desert, am I right? Well for those who want to rent an Airstream for Burning Man, an annual city built in the middle of the Nevada desert devoted to self-reliance and self-expression, you've come to the right place. This year we are offering Airstream rental packages specifically for Burning Man (August 27- September 4, 2017).
Now I'm sure you've noticed the pricing for these packages are nothing to sneeze at. But that's because having experienced Airstreams returning from Burning Man, we know that Playa dust is also nothing to sneeze at. The bulk of the cost goes to the 10+ hours of preparing our Airstreams for Burning Man (including a full waxing of the exterior and the taping of all windows and vents) and the 30+ hours of cleaning required to fully remove Playa dust from every nook, cranny and compartment of the Airstream. We also provide free grocery stocking, purchased by the customer through Instacart (ie have all the water you need for the week already stocked into your Airstream when you arrive) and free San Jose Airport pick-up and drop-off for out-of-town guests. And of course we include all of our usual Elite RV amenities like a fully-stocked kitchen, all linens and towels, full propane tanks, and dumping of all tanks post-trip. (For comparison, we've researched and have found that competitors like Cruise America rent their un-stocked and un-prepped class C RVs for $4500 for Burning Man, while Airstream2Go rents their Airstreams with tow vehicle for $12,000 for the week.)
We have also decided that we will not be doing Airstream deliveries to the Playa so all renters must tow their own Airstream to Burning Man. We feel that since Burning Man is a community celebrating self-reliance, that guests going to the Playa should practice this Burning Man principle. And if you want to practice towing before your drive to the Nevada desert, we will happily schedule a time to show you the basics and allow you to practice at our San Jose garage free of charge. And of course all rentals are fully insured (which is included in the Burning Man package price). Lastly if you don't own a truck, we have partnered with our local Enterprise Commercial business and can arrange the rental for you. We will also have the rental truck delivered and hitched up to the trailer ready to go on the day of pick-up.
