CHANDLER, Ariz. — We Are Airstream has purchased a new sales and servicing facility in Chandler, Ariz., at 1375 S. Arizona Ave., located on the southeast corner of Loop 202 and Arizona Avenue. The 136,000-square-foot freestanding building sits on 14.9 acres. The new Chandler location is now open to customers while Airstream finishes construction on exterior improvements. 

Airstream trailers are famous for their distinctive round shape and polished aluminum. Introduced in 1932, Airstream continues to be one of the top sellers in the Recreational Vehicle (RV) business. Sales in the RV industry have increased significantly over the last several years as Americans look for experiential outdoor trips and baby boomers retire. In addition, the pandemic has led to more customers considering the mobile, outdoor lifestyle that an RV provides.

This new facility will allow We Are Airstream to service the growing southeast valley and entire metropolitan region. The floorplan will be approximately 40% showroom and sales, with the remaining space dedicated to servicing and storage. We Are Airstream expects to have 60 employees working at the facility, in roles such as technicians, concierge ambassadors, property maintenance, accounting and sales experts.

“We are thrilled to welcome We Are Airstream to Chandler and appreciate their significant investment into this important property,” stated Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “The Airstream product has built a loyal following over many decades and we wish them many years of success at their new location in Chandler.”

“We searched diligently and strategically to find a new location and couldn’t be happier to land in Chandler,” stated Aaron Korges, We Are Airstream’s President. “Chandler is at the heart of the burgeoning southeast valley and we were impressed with the strong demographics in the area. We look forward to building a long-term relationship with the community as we ramp up operations in Arizona.”
