In thumbing through the current issue of Departures magazine, I came across an interesting article about Airstream travel trailers by Jesse Will. He chronicles a number of interesting facts (some of which are shared below) and it is certainly worth a look if you have any interest in Airstream Trailers, Travel Trailers in general, or RVs. Here is some of the history shared about the iconic manufacturer of the unmistakable aluminum skinned trailers:
- 105,000 Airstream trailers exist is various states of repair, since Airstream was founded in 1932
- The current factory located in Jackson Center, Ohio has been producing trailers since 1952
- Many of the current productions methods mirror those used since the beginning — each Airstream is pieced together by hand
- Each Airstream trailer is held together by three to four thousand rivets and screws
- The Airstream factory does restoration work to refurbish vintage Airstream trailers
