Staying Connected on the Open Road

In today’s work environment, as remote work becomes more common, living on the open road for extended journeys has never been easier. Whether you take a day or two off for a weekend getaway or embark on a long trip without using your precious vacation days, Airstream is ready to provide everything you need to stay connected wherever you go.

New technology has made remote work more accessible than ever, from writers and marketers to entrepreneurs and tech professionals. The days when long road trips were only a dream for retirees or those who saved up for weeks of vacation are long gone.

If you’re considering a work-life on the open road, Airstream offers the perfect opportunity to explore everything the world has to offer while staying connected.

Perfect Mobile Office

Every Airstream travel trailer can serve as a mobile office. Dining tables can be transformed into workstations with a view, and when you need to meet a deadline, the picnic tables at the campsite can provide fresh air and inspiration. Depending on where you camp, you can take advantage of amenities such as WiFi, workspace areas, campgrounds, or local cafes.

WiFi Connection in Your Airstream

WiFi is the cheapest option and can usually be accessed for free or at a very low cost at most campgrounds and cafes. However, it is often unreliable. If you choose this option, do your homework beforehand to determine whether the WiFi at your next location will meet your needs.

Working with Cellular Connection in Your Airstream

Cellular connection is generally reliable and cost-effective, making it the most popular option. You can connect through a mobile hotspot from your phone, purchase a plug-and-play mobile access point with external antenna support, or use a built-in cellular router or booster. Many Airstreamers explore cellular connection options through their current mobile service providers.

Satellite Connection in Your Airstream

Satellite connection is a great option for those who camp in remote areas where it provides service as long as you have a clear view of the sky. While this option can be expensive and often offers low bandwidth, it is reliable.

Tips for Remote Work in Your Airstream

For those who want to work on the road, here are some tips to make staying connected and working a seamless and enjoyable experience:

  1. Always have a backup connection. Be prepared with another connection option for times when WiFi is down, cellular service is inadequate, or you can’t get a clear view of the sky for satellite connection.
  2. Minimize distractions as much as possible. This is especially important if you’ll be taking phone or video conference meetings from your Airstream. While you may find your work-travel adventure epic, colleagues may not appreciate the ocean’s roar or barking dogs in the background hindering communication.
  3. Balance work and play. We’ve all heard the phrase “work hard, play hard,” but we’ve also learned the importance of self-care. If you have a lot of work on your plate, plan your days accordingly to prepare yourself for success. For example, don’t go on a grueling 20 km mountain bike ride right before a big meeting. However, don’t overwork yourself to the point where you can’t enjoy the advantages of being a working nomad. Experiment to find the right balance for you.
  4. Record your experience if possible. Share your good and bad experiences to encourage others considering remote work from an Airstream.
