Airstream Travel Trailers: Decades of Innovation

Self Contained Trailers

One thing that a lot of people don’t realize is that Airstream founder Wally Byam was an innovator, the first to create so many product innovations that started with Airstream and now have grown to be standard parts of all recreational vehicles, whether it’s refrigerators or flush toilets or awnings. That legacy gives Airstream today a responsibility to innovate, to continue to push the envelope, to be on the leading edge of product innovation and design.

Right now, Airstream is thinking about systems to allow your travel trailer or motorhome to communicate with you more intuitively, to give drivers warnings when things are going to go wrong. The goal: for people to travel, feel safe and secure, and really get the most out of their Airstream experience.
