I is for Innovation

Airstream founder Wally Byam not only created Airstream, Inc. but also challenged us “to strive endlessly to stir the venturesome spirit.” He also encouraged us all “to open a whole world of new experiences.” And today, here at Airstream, we love that Airstream travel trailers allow people to live the life of their dreams, just as Wally intended. People live, play, rest, travel and work in their Airstreams, and we have the privilege of hearing stories about how people use their travel trailers in a way that suits them perfectly. Today we want to focus on not just people who

Airstream Plant Expansion

The decade of the 1950s represented several milestones for Airstream, Inc. For one, it represented a time of Live Riveted adventure and exploration as founder Wally Byam led the first Airstream caravans outside American borders. It was also a period of significant growth for Airstream as it began to outgrow its factory in California. Then in July 1952, a new Airstream factory was officially established in Jackson Center, Ohio, where it remains today. Fast forward to 2014, and Airstream is facing a milestone similar to the one we faced in the early 1950s; as a result of growing demand, production

Transported by a Festival

The smell of kettle corn is in the air. One of the fun things about living in an urban environment is proximity to not just restaurants and stores but events like concerts, literary readings and festivals. And by proximity I mean walking distance. As it happens, I live a few short steps from my town’s main drag, so our recent Arts and Music Festival seemed like a great time to transport myself to a world where others’ creativity is on display. To boot, it was a chance to have a few friends to my place for mimosas and a little

Spotted: Aluminum

Airstreamers are everywhere, and that means so is our favorite color:  Aluminum! The Airstream’s sleek and shiny exterior plays a big part in the trailer’s “wow factor.” The unmistakable curved aluminum exterior has led to the tried and true nickname, “the silver bullet.” When a silver bullet is coasting down the highway, people tend to stop and take in the beauty and innovation of our classic travel trailer. We are excited that the color of our beloved Airstream is getting some extra love these days! Country music super star Miranda Lambert titled her most recent album “Platinum” as an ode

H is for the History of Travel Trailers

What do you picture when you think of “travel trailers?” It is safe to say that you probably don’t imagine something that looks similar to a covered wagon. What would you think if we told you that’s exactly what gave birth to what you now know as the travel trailer?
