About AIR GEAR
We curate, develop, and sell best-in-class solutions that help Airstream owners travel safer and smarter
Our goal is to make the Airstream travel experience awesome
- Our maintenance, safety, and upgrade solutions address the unique needs of Airstream and RV owners.
- We test each product in our own Airstream before we sell it in our store.
- When a product we want to carry doesn't exist, we develop it ourselves. We originated the market for Airstream teak shower mats, developed the first tire changing kit for Airstream trailers, designed the Ultimate RV Water Hose, and created a line of DIY kits and gear organization bags.
Our products and recommendations are based on first-hand experience

He has restored Airstream trailers and managed 27 major Airstream events such as Alumapalooza.
Rich is also the publisher of Airstream Life magazine.
We're contributors to the community
Our mission is to help people enjoy the Airstream and RV life by traveling safer and smarter. We are authors, educators, Airstream Club International members, and active contributors to the Airstream and RV community.
Our blogs, guides, and videos to give people practical guidance from the lessons we’ve learned.
Our content is credible and accurate
We are educators–not entertainers or "influencers"–which means we place a high value on providing accurate information and advice.
Our blogs, videos, and guides are based on research, facts, manufacturer's manuals, and primary source documentation. Our co-founders have both been writing how-to books, blogs, articles, and guides for more than 25 years, and believe in the importance of fact checking.
Until October 1, 2022, AIR GEAR was known as the Airstream Life Store.
The owners are the same–only the name has changed.
