Joe Downtown: Airstreams the next boutique hotel for downtown?

What if you could rent out a sleek Airstream recreational vehicle for the night as a hotel room?

Though it is still in the early stages, the idea to put an Airstream park in downtown Las Vegas on East Fremont Street is being one kicked around by the Downtown Project.

It might not be difficult to obtain the necessary zoning and other city permits, however, because the idea isn’t new to Fremont Street.

For years, the Western RV Park existed at 10th and Fremont, part of the now-closed The Western casino.

Guess who owns the land now?

Several acres between Ninth and 10th, on the south side of Fremont Street, were sold in September for $7.9 million to 900 Fremont LLC, whose officers include Andrew Donner of Downtown Las Vegas Management LLC, and DTP Mgmt LLC, whose officers include Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh.
