If you were interested in adding a touch of Hollywood to your driveway, we’re afraid to say you’ve missed out on your chance to buy Tom Hanks’ Airstream.

The ‘silver bullet’ trailer sold at auction for $235,200 – an estimated £169,775.59.

Hanks had previously ordered the 1992 33ft Airstream Model 34 Limited Excella Travel Trailer to meet his exact requirements.

Hanks said: “I had spent too much time in regular trailers with ugly decor and horribly uncomfortable furniture.”

“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.”

The trailer was auctioned off at the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction on August 13th.

Hanks had other items in the auction as well, including a 2011 Ford F-450 Super Duty pick-up. The pick-up sold for $84,000 – an estimated £60,618.60.
