The original Airstream went on its first trip in 1929. It was created out of a husband’s wish to find a compromise with his wife.
The founder of Airstream, Wally Byam, loved to go camping. But his wife didn’t want any part of it. She didn’t like the thought of sleeping on the ground, or camping without her kitchen.
To please his wife and to fulfill his wish of taking her to the great outdoors, he created the first Airstream trailer. While on trips with his wife, his trailer started to generate a bit of interest. Byam seized the opportunity that was in front of him and began building trailers in his backyard. This eventually led to the founding of the Airstream Trailer Company in 1932.
Since then, the Airstream trailer has grown into an iconic symbol of the RVing lifestyle. But there are those that are taking this trailer to a whole other level. Many owners are remodeling their rigs and producing wondrous results. Whether you like modern or shabby chic decor, their designs are sure to inspire.
