What better way to spend the summer than traveling the New England coast in a newly renovated Airstream trailer? Nicknamed The Rhode Yacht for its home state of Rhode Island, the Airstream has been given a new life of luxury, comfort and durability and is making its way across New England on a tour to see the sights and sounds of summer complete with regattas, boat shows and music festivals.

From a plywood interior that was almost completely rotted out to a new luxury design from Morris Yachts, episode one reveals the key players and motivation behind the Rhode Yacht’s makeover. The new look features interior seating upholstered with vibrant orange, blue and green Sunbrella fabrics, Canvas Melon, Canvas Aruba, Canvas Macaw and Carousel Confetti, that play off the vintage exterior of The Rhode Yacht. The new design also features luxury amenities and a retractable awning that will be used to extend the living space to create an outdoor room.

Learn about the fabrics used in the Rhode Yacht in our decor guide.

Check back in for our next episode where we experience the New England lifestyle and put Sunbrella fabrics to the test at the starting line of the Newport Bermuda Race.
