WHAT do Brad Pitt, Matthew McConaughey, Sean Penn and Colin Farrell all have in common? They all own trailers! But don't go calling them "trash" just quite yet — their custom-built Airstreams can cost up to $170,000.

Brad's vintage Airstream 345 — which he has nicknamed the "Luv Sub" — has a special place in his heart because he used to sleep in it after he split up with Jennifer Aniston. The 35-foot-long RV is powered by a 5.9 Cummins diesel engine and has an aircraft-style aluminium body. It has a queen-size bed, shower, full kitchen and can sleep up to six people... ideal if he wants to take a road trip with his partner, Angelina Jolie, and their four kids!

Free-spirited Matt owns an $80,000 International Ocean Breeze Airstream where he currently lives with his pregnant girlfriend, Camilla Alves, at a Malibu RV park. The part trailer/part seaside cottage can sleep four people and boasts a queen-size bedroom, full bathroom, kitchen and dinette.

Whenever hellraiser Colin Farrell is filming Stateside he likes to park this $120,000 Classic Airstream on the set. Built for long vacations, it can sleep six, has a queen bed, full bathroom, shower, kitchen and dining area plus pantry.

Into The Wild director Sean Penn likes to escape to this Safari Airstream when he wants to get back to nature. This old style trailer survived a fire at the home Sean used to share with ex-wife Madonna in Malibu. It can sleep four, has a bedroom, shower, kitchen, dining area plus bunk beds — and costs a cool $70,000 new.

"Celebrities love Airstreams because they have become American icons with their sleek lines and designs," Airstream salesman Mike Mota tells "They are the epitomy of cool when it comes to trailers."
