Wally Byam founded Airstream in 1931 in Culver City, California. After experimenting with building travel trailers that made camping much more comfortable than rugged, Wally rented a building and opened a small travel trailer factory. The factory has moved since then, but that’s where Airstream was born.
Airstreams were originally built in California, but by 1952, the company had outgrown their space. Rather than stay out west, Airstream founder Wally Byam scouted locations in the midwest where the company could grow and contribute to a community. That year, Airstream officially called Jackson Center, Ohio home.
The prices vary based on the size, floor plan, and the features we build in. You should also talk to your Airstream dealer about what the final price of your Airstream could be.
Back in the early days of the Wally Byam Caravan Club International, each Airstream that traveled with the caravan was given its own unique number. You can read more about the original caravans and the Airstream numbers here.
