Mill Valley, California

Located just over the Golden Gate Bridge north of San Francisco, this one-bedroom Airstream leans into retro vibes, while still keeping up with modern amenities. It's an Airbnb Plus, too, which means it passes Airbnb's in-person, 100-point inspection, which includes having closet and drawer space for guests, a well-lit entry, easy check-in, comfortable mattresses, a coffee maker, and toiletries like shampoo, among other things. The cherry-red kitchen may look old-school, but all of the appliances, like the mini-fridge and the microwave, are new. Plus, there's a full-sized bath that's wrapped completely in map wallpaper, a bedroom with a queen bed, and a dining space in the front of the camper with its own imitation fireplace. Located in the host's backyard, it has its own deck (pictured above) and enough space between the home and Airstream for privacy.

Valle de Guadelupe, Mexico

This Silver Streak trailer has come a long way from when it was used as an actual camper in the 1930s—now, all that exists is its original shell, from which nearly the entire side has been cut out for floor-to-ceiling, sliding glass doors overlooking Mexican wine country. While we're in love with the design and functionality of the one-room space, it's the full soaking tub in the bathroom (behind the palm-frond wallpapered wall) that has our jaws on the floor. The trailer also has an enormous wooden deck, which basically triples its footprint.

Los Angeles, California

Permanently parked in L.A.'s Echo Park neighborhood, this Airbnb Plus Airstream has spectacular views over the sprawling city from its yard, which serves as additional outdoor living space for the trailer. Inside, the bright white interior reflects the California sun, filling the kitchen, living room, and queen-sized bedroom with natural light. The kitchen is well-equipped, with a gas stove so you can do more than just re-heating take out if you're feeling adventurous. Note, as with a lot of these trailers, the shower here is particularly small, so tall travelers beware.

Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

This Airstream, nicknamed "Lucille," is a little different because it is still mobile. To book, you need to reserve a campground spot in Seaside, Santa Rosa Beach, or Panama Beach, Florida, and the hosts will drop off the trailer for you to enjoy wherever you're staying. If you aren't well versed in trailer hook-ups for electricity, water, sewage, and the like, the hosts will thankfully do all of that for you. A larger—granted, relative to the others on this list—trailer, this one has three beds, one queen and two twins, and is best suited for families. It's got a beachy, bo-ho interior design and a fully stocked kitchen with a gas stove, plus air-conditioning, a welcome amenity in the Florida summer. Bonus: no matter where you park the trailer, you're short drive from Henderson Beach State Park in Destin, one of the best beaches in the state.

Phoenix, Arizona

At under $50 a night, this Airstream (and Airbnb Plus) is a steal—not only because it's got a queen bed, dining table, kitchen with a microwave and mini fridge, and air conditioning. It has an enormous, partially shaded yard, with a hammock, grill so you don't have to cook in the camper, and extra outdoor seating. Back inside, there's a shower that may pose a challenge for tall travelers, but it's completely tiled, making it look like it could be in a home as opposed to a trailer.

Joshua Tree, Califronia

Set on five private acres just 15 minutes from the entrance to Joshua Tree National Park, this Airstream is for those that want to get off the grid. There's no Wi-Fi and no TV. There is, though, space for one full bed and two twin beds, a kitchen with large, nearly full-size fridge, air conditioning for the hot desert days, and heating for the cool nights. Plus, there's lots of outdoor living space for enjoying the natural surroundings and incredible star-gazing that comes as a result of the trailer's limited light pollution.

Salt Spring Island, Canada

After a 30-minute sea-plane ride from Vancouver, settle into this all-white, minimalist Airstream nicknamed "August" that's large enough to fit a wood-burning fireplace. There's also a queen bed, four-burner propane stove, full-size oven, and plenty of closet space. The reason why the interior is so big is because, well, there isn't a bathroom inside. Instead, it's located just outside—but don't think this is an outhouse: there's a full-sized, tiled shower, toilet, and sink, making it one of the nicest and, more importantly, largest bathroom of all in all of these trailers.

Hoz de Anera, Spain

Don't let the American flag fool you. This 1948 Vagabond trailer is located near Spain's northern coast, just outside of the seaside town of Santander and about an hour from Bilbao. Permanently parked on a private lot with its own yard, the trailer has almost an entirely original interior. Its walls and ceilings are covered with original birch paneling, and the microwave and mini-fridge are both vintage appliances. There's also a double bed—and a sofa bed if you want to squeeze three people inside. What's not included? A TV or Wi-Fi.
