Airstream: an Advertising Legend

How did Airstream become an American icon? Let’s trace its roots in advertising and the way it created a visual experience of the road from its origins to today. In 1919, an up-and-coming advertising man named Wallace M. Davis, the advertising manager for The Daily Palo Alto, wrote a letter to Society Brand Clothes. An excerpt from that letter, soliciting a sale of advertising space, read: “The average Stanford Man wants his clothes stylish…we believe Society Brand Clothing to be well worth the expenditure; no other national clothiers are advertising on the campus.” After graduation, Davis changed his name back

Airstream and…Bikinis?

The 1956 European Caravan provided many eye-opening experiences. Imagine rows and rows of shiny aluminum Airstreams reflecting the pure blue of the sky. They lined up at campsites and dot-dashed all over the countryside. The Caravan ultimately arrived in the Netherlands after having traveled through Germany, Luxembourg, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

There is truth in the statement that things don’t just happen  – people make things happen. In 1951, Wally Byam organized and conducted the first Airstream Caravan to Mexico and Central America. This created a tradition of Caravans spanning the globe, traveling across Africa, Europe, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Middle East. I first met Earl and Pauline Arborn on the first Caravan in 1951. They enjoyed the camaraderie being with like-minded travelers. Sometime after the first Caravan, a group of Airstreamers formed a small group for get-togethers to enjoy their Airstreams and to talk about the wonderful times they had on Caravans.
