CAMP WITH AIRSTREAM since the 1920's
Since the 1920's
Wally Byam (born July 4, 1896) grew up living in a wooden wagon and working hard on a sheep farm. His wagon had a few amenities such as a stove and food, plus all his supplies. Wally also went camping quite often, however his wife, Marion, never liked sleeping on the ground in their tent. So Wally went to work, building his first version of the trailer - a tent on top of a model T. From there he began honing the trailer until it gained popularity amongst other travelers (source: Airstream.com).

When you do buy an Airstream, you get to name it and have it registered - sort of like a vacation home. Yes, Airstream's are not cheap, but then again, a vacation home would be more - and it can't move around like an Airstream!
