Airstream Getaway

Airstreams are synonymous with getting away and having a sense of freedom on the endless highways of the U.S.  The glow from the sunlight’s reflection on the aluminum brings back images from another era to the present.

Towards the end of the 1920’s, Wally Byam set up a company and began making trailers out of Masonite, near Los Angeles.  In 1936 he introduced the Airstream Clipper, the first of the now familiar sausage-shaped aluminum trailers whose design was to reduce the level of wind resistance and improve fuel efficiency.
