Tom Hanks’ beloved Airstream is going to auction in Carmel
Actor Tom Hanks is auctioning off an Airstream trailer was his “home away from home” while filming movies over a period of 20 years.
Hanks said in an interview for Bonhams Magazine: “I got it in the days when movies moved slower. I had spent too much time in regular trailers with ugly decor and horribly uncomfortable furniture, so I decided to buy a brand-new Airstream shell with an interior made to my own request.”
Bidding begins on August 13 in an auction in Carmel. More details are here.
