This could be your chance to tour in Tom Hanks’ Airstream trailer after the actor put it up for sale.
Hanks had previously ordered the 1992 33ft Airstream Model 34 Limited Excella Travel Trailer to his exact requirements.
The Airstream Model 34 Limited Excella Travel Trailer
Hanks said: “I had spent too much time in regular trailers with ugly decor and horribly uncomfortable furniture.”
The trailer – used by the actor while filming a dozen movies – will come with the furniture Hanks ordered for it.
The ‘silver bullet’ Airstream will be auctioned off at the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction on August 13th.
The bathroom, complete with ‘Hollywood lights’
Hanks added: “I didn’t want anything built-in, other than the kitchen and bathroom, so it had only a desk and cupboard in the back, a futon platform on the floor, and room for a small table and chairs.”
You’ll never forget who the previous owner was…
“I shan’t forget night shoots on Gump and The Green Mile with the windows open and the cool air coming in. Or the time Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton and I watched a Buster Keaton documentary on the TV – before running through the Forest Lawn cemetery in our Apollo 13 costumes to pay homage at his grave.”
However, you’ll have to be prepared to raid the piggy bank – the Airstream trailer is estimated to go for between £110,000-£180,000. You may also need to clear some space on your drive…
Hanks has other items up for auction too, including the 2011 Ford F-450 Super Duty pick-up. Bought specifically to tow the Airstream, the pick-up is estimated to go for between £50,000-£72,000.
