Boomers Hit The Interstate

By Rich Luhr Nobody saw this coming: Airstream, a niche producer of classic aluminum trailers for eight decades, somehow became the Number One manufacturer of…of all things…diesel B-vans. These sharp-looking premium motorhomes defy all the assumptions about Airstream. They aren’t aluminum, they’re steel. They are motorhomes, coming from a manufacturer that has been known for its travel trailers.

So who’s buying them? In
