Airstream travel trailers and touring coaches inspire adventure and help people Live Riveted wherever they go.
Ahh the Silver Bullet – One of my goals in life is to travel around the country with my wife in a vintage Bambi Airstream travel trailer. I just love the look. But for now I’ll just have to settle for photographing classic Airstream trailers. The photograph above features a classic vintage Airstream camper with the words “Home Sweet Home” above it. Its been popular as a print sold via Fine Art America and Pixels.
The trailer in the photo was captured on the streets of Bozeman, Montana and seems to be a bit weathered and need of a little TLC but it makes for a facinating black and white photo subject with all of those nicks and dings. The font is something called Air Conditioning and hearkens back to the days of futuristic type on appliances made of real metal and heavy motors.
I have a bit of a series on Airstream Trailers:
An American iconic brand – the Airstream travel trailer floating off the Earth and into the great blue summer sky!
Airstream is a brand of luxury recreational vehicle manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio, USA. It is currently a division of Thor Industries. The company, which now employs fewer than 400, is the oldest in the industry. Airstream trailers are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded aluminum bodies. This shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by Hawley Bowlus. Bowlus was the chief designer of Charles Lindbergh’s aircraft, the Spirit of St. Louis.
This vintage Airstream was photographed by Edward M. Fielding on the streets of Bozeman, Mt.
