The Airstream Trailer Company was created by Wally Byam who began building trailers out of Masonite in his backyard during the late 1920s. In 1936, he introduced one called “The Clipper” which had aluminum walls and sleeping quarters for four people with its own water supply–a great improvement over previous models at only $1k!
In 1974, Airstream began manufacturing a Class A motorhome and sold it as the ” Argosy”. They had two models: 20 feet long with 24-inch wide tires (6 meters) for less than $50000 USD; or 30+ footer featuring saddle interior upholstery on vintage furnishings such as leather seats from Hepplewhite furniture store in Denver Colorado called ‘Stella’s Gold’. This 1962 Tradewind bought by Art Costello became one of only 2 known gold colorways ever made!
