In 2004, McConaughey bought an Airstream trailer and lived in it for four years.

According to Architectural Digest, the trailer has a living area, a bedroom, a kitchen, and a toilet and shower area. McConaughey especially liked the window in the bedroom, noting, “It’s got a great window right above your pillow, so when you wake up in the morning, you’re looking right at the ocean or wherever your backyard is that day.”

McConaughey loves his Airstream so much that he even once dreamed about owning a whole bunch of them.

“One day I’ll have either an Airstream hotel or an Airstream compound,” he told Architectural Digest. “I don’t know where it’ll be yet, but the thing about Airstreams is you feel a little bad for ’em if you got ’em parked too long and the axles aren’t spinning, you know, because they’re built for the road.”

McConaughey does not live in his Airstream anymore, but he still takes it around the country on road trips. In 2018, he shared with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that he had stayed in 49 states in the Airstream.
