Be a star of Hollywood It should not be an easy job. At least that’s what the actors say as they rake in thousands and thousands of dollars. What is true is that during filming they spend many hours, often with long waits on sets or in rolling dressing rooms that are not anything to write home about either. Fed up with that look, in 1993 Tom Hanks bought one mobile home which has been accompanying him for all these years and which is now auctioning.

It is a Airstream Model 34 Limited Excella, with a fairly typical exterior, but that has a custom interior as a result of the tastes of its own Hanks.
The actor explains what his goal was in acquiring it: “I got it in the days when movies moved more slowly. I had spent too much time in normal trailers with ugly decor and horribly uncomfortable furniture, so I decided to buy a new Airstream with an interior made to my liking. I didn’t want anything built-in apart from the kitchen and bathroom, so I only had a desk and a closet in the back, a futon on the floor, and space for a small table and chairs. I also wanted a regular sofa, so I made one with removable legs so it could fit through the door. “
Over the years its endowment has been increasing and it already has a small bed in the back area, in addition to there are details that collectors will value, such as a signed mug from the movie ‘Apollo 13‘, or directly the actor’s signature on the inside of the caravan, between the air conditioning and a door.
Movie buffs will have an important object of interest in this lot, as it has been in some of Hanks ‘most remembered films, such as’ Something to Remember ‘,’Forrest Gump‘,’ Philadelphia ‘or’ Sully ‘.
The Tom Hanks motorhome will be sold without reservation on August 13, so the highest bid will take it. From Bonhams they expect it to reach a price of between 150,000 and 250,000 dollars, that is, between 130,000 and 210,000 euros at the current exchange rate.
