Airstream is a brand of luxury trailers that are easily recognizable  by the distinctive shape of their rounded polished aluminum coachwork. The body shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by William Hawley Bowlus, seen below.

Bowlus was an expert at soaring flight and at building gliders, established numerous records, trained many of America’s earliest glider pilots, and gave gliding lessons to both Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. In 1930 he and Lindbergh glided at various locations in California. He was also the Superintendent of Construction for the famed, Spirit of St. Louis. You could almost say that Airstream trailers were born from aircraft!! Come see your next Airstream trailer at RV Canada.
