Airstream Smart Control Technology is a fully integrated cellular, WiFi, smart control and RV automation system backed by AT&T Connected Car cellular data plans.
The package is standard on 2019+ Airstream Classic models and became available to existing Airstreams via a dealer-installed upgrade package in early 2019 for $999.
As of April 24, 2023, the newly released Airstream Connect Kit comes with Peplink's new BR1 Mini HW3. Older Airstream Connect installs will have the older version of the Mini (Max Br1 Mini HW2).
This integrated system provides advanced remote control and monitoring features, and it also provides a long-range Wi-Fi system and integrated LTE modem. Many RV systems can be remotely controlled via a companion app.
At least for now, you must purchase the cellular/ Wi-Fi hardware module directly from Airstream, and "professional installation" from a dealer will be required.
- Supported Cellular Carriers: AT&T
- Router: Pepwave Max BR1 Mini HW3
- Roof Antenna: MIMO-3-V2 Low-Profile Combination Antennas by Poynting
- Retail Price: $999 MSRP (equipment only)
- Install Costs: Estimated at 3-6 hours at your dealer's hourly rate
Cellular Plan Options
Eligible for use with the AT&T RV DataConnect Plans, which are also available from AT&T's Airstream Connected Car page.
Review & Testing Status
We do not intend to purchase an Airstream to test this system, however, we do have both the Max BR1 Mini and Poynting antenna in for review, thanks to the folks at MobileMustHave.
