INDIO, Calif.— It’s not the standard Christmas set-up, but put on some Perry Como or Mannheim Steamroller and plug in the icicle lights, and even the plainest aluminum camper takes on a holiday sheen.

Snowbirds throughout the Coachella Valley are decking the dashboard of the Tiffin and trimming the hitches of the Airstream. They’re roasting prime rib and honey-baked hams in convection microwaves.

And on the big day, they’ll be Skyping with the grandkids in Missouri and Pennsylvania.

The RV community is by definition a nomadic one, but that doesn’t mean that Christmas traditions get left behind along with the heavy furniture and the permanent address. But there is definitely some scaling back that comes with the cruising lifestyle.

“I’ve always had 25 to 30 people at my house,” Sandy Gotwalt said.

“Worked our butts off,” interrupted her husband, Brian.

“This is what retirement is all about,” she finished the thought, shaking her silver Frosty earrings.

Jackson Center, Ohio – Airstream, the most recognized RV manufacturer in North America, reported a significant order input at the RVIA 2011 National Expo in Louisville, KY, for both travel trailers and motorhomes. These numbers reflect strong continuing growth for the iconic company, which more than doubled its sales at this important event when compared with last year.

RV show order input comes on top of an already strong year where Airstream has experienced a doubling of trailer sales, and a 175 percent increase on vans. The spike in orders is directly related to dealer confidence in inventory turns and strong retail interest from customers who are intrigued by new units Airstream is bringing to market. Airstream recognizes its dealers’ commitment to the brand and strong performance in retail as a big driver in the success experienced at the show.

Airstream took the opportunity at the Expo to introduce several new products, including the extended Interstate 3500 EXT Class B motorhome and the 27’ Eddie Bauer Airstream travel trailer. Most notably, the company unveiled the “Sterling Concept” trailer designed by Christopher Deam, offering strong hints about future design direction. At its core, Airstream’s stylish trailers and touring coaches are designed to give consumers the ability to experience the outdoors to the fullest.

“The growing interest in Airstream can readily be attributed to the iconic design, premium quality, and the sense of community our brand represents while on the road,” said Airstream CEO Bob Wheeler. “Furthermore, we are seeing now more than ever that people are multi-purposing their Airstreams for both commercial and personal use, and our market share is growing accordingly.”
