Flights to the USA may be back on but those still nervous about transatlantic travel can channel their RV dreams closer to home in a renovated 1974 Airstream Overlander for sale in east London.

After a £24,000 reduction, the 23ft trailer has an asking price of £145,000 and is being sold through Aucoot.

It is kitted out with a bedroom, hydraulic dining table/second double bed, parquet floor and bathroom, all inside the iconic aluminum aircraft-style exterior.

Not suitable for towing, the trailer’s appeal lies in its sleek design and functionality as an extra living space or a home office if installed in a large garden or outdoor space.

Electricity can be provided using the 12v battery or mains hook up.

The London listing comes a few weeks after US actor Tom Hanks sold his Airstream trailer at auction for £172,000.

Hanks travelled with it across America, from South Carolina for Forrest Gump to California for Angels and Demons, as he found the decor of regular trailers "ugly" and "uncomfortable".

Having owned it for nearly 30 years, The Green Mile star put the Airstream and all its contents up for auction last month with a price estimate of £109,000 to £181,000.
