9 unique airstreams and RVs for rent in British Columbia
Digital nomads and nature lovers can’t get enough of the air travel trend.
Sleek mobile RVs are an old school take on camping and can fit just about anywhere.
From Woods on Pender Island to Tin Can Ranch, here’s a list of the fanciest airstreams (and some RVs) in British Columbia.
Wood on Pender
King of all.
The property – which includes nine air streams, cabins, and a motel – bills itself as a “glamping” destination on beautiful Pender Island.
These airflows are anything but your parents ‘motorhome from the’ 70s. While each one is slightly different, the designs are sleek and modern with leather upholstery, comfy queen-size beds, barbecues and, can – most importantly, a cedar wood hot tub.
Food and drink are also a main attraction at Wood on Pender, with Camp Truck and Coffee + Kitchen, which serves casual fare and cocktails.
August the Airstream
Bright and airy August the Airstream has everything you could possibly want for a Salt Spring Island getaway.
This Sovereign model from 1985 has been elegantly redesigned and decorated in a minimalist style with a bohemian touch.
There is plenty of space to relax and unwind between the comfy bed and the gray sofa. Your private heated bathroom is also a short walk from the outside.
The white bed looks super comfy to boot.
Relax and unwind at this old school ranch style property.
With a retro 70s vibe, the Canned ranch is the perfect escape from the Gibsons.
From the cedar-lined shower to the spacious sauna and comfy bed, everything about this dreamy Airstream is totally Instagrammable.
Bonus: the outdoor fireplace is perfect for a few summer s’mores.
Airstream Island Retreat on Bowen Island
This tropical themed airflow (a Trade Wind model from 1975, to be exact) is the perfect BFF or couples’ getaway: the twin beds, which are fitted with high-quality bamboo linens, can easily transform into a large double bed.
Equipped with everything you need, you’ll feel more on the Hawaiian Islands than on Bowen (inside, at least).
Relax and unwind in the comfortable hammock or on the private deck, which overlooks picturesque Deep Bay.
We also like the tiled bathroom adorned with turquoise river crystals in 100% recycled glass.
Joffre Creek Airstream
This adorable airstream is the latest offering from Joffre stream cabins.
The restored 1970 Outlander joined the cabins in 2019 and is the only space in the lower part of the property – providing complete seclusion in the fantasy forest.
The cedar shower stall features a clawfoot tub and shower for a spa-like experience.
Visitors can also grab onto the hammock chairs at the gazebo and explore the surrounding nature (Lower Joffre Creek waterfall is a must see).
Parksville 1970s Inspired Motorhome
Return vibrations. This unique Parksville Motorhome (a Silver Streak Argosy from 1976) is reminiscent of a Gucci advertisement with its orange velvet armchairs and turquoise sheets.
Wooded and welcoming, this RV home will make you feel like you’re back in 1976, when Trudeau Sr. was still PM, the CN Tower was completed and The Who was at the top of the charts.
Rustic and rural, this place has a large covered patio, a private fenced yard and all the fresh air one could want.
Harvey the RV in Lake Country
Bold and modern, Harvey the motorhome may be 20 years old, but after a complete makeover it certainly doesn’t look like it.
Parked on an acre of land at Carrs Landing, it’s a perfect (and unique) way to experience the Okanagan Lake District.
The decor is reminiscent of a trendy bachelor apartment with its bright red sofa and patterned rug, but it all works one way or another.
A light breakfast is offered, as well as a barbecue. The motorhome also includes a fireplace.
More chic than an apartment in New York. We never thought about doing it by RV in Vancouver, but the tit more than sold us.
Its bold black and wood interior is accented with modern leafy plants for a warm yet modern vibe.
Located in the upscale neighborhood of Shaughnessy. Short stays only: this airstream does not have a shower or bath option.
Converted school bus to Sooke
This converted 1969 school bus has been completely renovated and converted into a small guesthouse near Sooke, BC. The spacious vehicle transformed into a mobile home was used in the Courtney area to drive students to and from school.
The garden side “Old School BnB”Has since changed color (yellow to bright turquoise) and put a roof over his head.
A ‘queen-size’ bathroom is en-suite outside, by the sweet little outdoor terrace, while the inside has a comfortable queen-size bed, kitchenette and refrigerator. filled with regular and non-dairy milks, plus farm-fresh eggs.
Right off the Galloping Goose Trail there is a lot of hiking to do here.
