Founded by Wally Byam in the 1930s, Airstream became America's premier manufacturer of travel trailers, instantly recognizable by their distinctive design and signature use of aluminum and rivets. WANDERLUST, produced by Airstream to commemorate its 75th anniversary, reveals the fascinating history and highlights of the company from its early days to the present and includes details of the famous Airstream caravans around the world as well as reminiscences from caravaners today. Rare photographs and ephemera from the Airstream archives provide a visual complement to the book's engaging text. Also featured are sections on the trailer's role in film and media, relevance in American culture and lifestyle, and a section on the company today. The Airstream is the camper travelers dream of well before their purchase and its endurance in the market is matched by the fact that 65% of the trailers ever made are still on the road.
