Iconic, aluminum-bodied Airstream trailers have been around for 80 years--get the full story in this photo-rich book. This book celebrates the eight decades since the first Airstream graced America's highways. It chronicles the fascinating history of Airstream trailers through a detailed history, stories, and beautiful photography. Although its roots stretch back to 1926, the first Airstream-brand trailers were introduced in the dark days of the Great Depression. Of the 400 travel-trailer manufacturers of that era, only Airstream survived. Dubbed the "Clipper" after the first trans-Atlantic seaplane, the 1936 Airstream featured a unique lightweight aluminum body that cut down on wind resistance, improved fuel efficiency, and made for easier towing. It slept four, carried its own water supply, was fitted with electric lights, and cost $1,200.  It was the perfect vehicle for a country emerging from a long struggle.
