All About Airstream

Perhaps no name evokes the romance of road travel the way "Airstream" does. The mere sight of one of the company's iconic, bullet-shaped aluminum travel trailers is enough to elicit nostalgia for the heyday of motor courts and roadtrips.

Founded by Wally Byam in the 1920s, Airstream quickly began producing the trailers that became the standard by which all other recreational vehicles were judged. By incorporating the construction methods of aircraft manufacturers, Byam created aerodynamic travel trailers that reflected the sleek Art Deco aesthetic of the era. Inside, the travel trailers were a lesson in luxury, with electric lighting throughout and an advanced ventilation system.

Over the years, Airstream have evolved with the times. The company now produces class A motorhomes , class B motorhomes, as well as trailers, and they recently unveiled a new tent trailer. Airstream remains the luxury choice for discriminating buyers. Even low-end Airstream boast amenities that would be high-end on other models by other manufacturers.

No other recreational vehicle manufacturer boasts such a loyal fan base as Airstream. In addition to buying Airstream travel trailers for recreational use, some people collect them as examples of modern design. Over 10,000 members of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International hold 1,500 rallies annually. Airstream-only RV parks have sprung up across the country. You can even find "motels" that consist of rows of refurbished vintage Airstreams.

If you're looking for a travel trailer or motor home with design panache, a rich history and an established community of enthusiasts to share experiences with, investing in a new or used Airstream will make you very happy
