Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Airstream story is the Wally Byam story, for if his wife, Stella, hadn't "refused to go camping without a kitchen," the world might never have known the aerodynamic silver trailer that screams art moderne. Though a few introductory pages suffice for Byam's personal story, his influence is felt throughout this colorful appreciation of the perfectly retro home-on-wheels, and his innovations are lauded. Littlefield and Brown sought out restored, remodeled, and reconditioned examples of the various models of Airstream that appeared over the years and photographed them and their owners in scenic repose. Two constants are the owners' pride in their trailers and their prizes' shiny silver sheathing (the few departures from silver exteriors are noted in passing). There are even Airstream clubs that tour exotic locales throughout the world en masse! Littlefield helpfully cautions that "over 300 trailer companies" manufactured Airstream lookalikes. To sharpen the eye for spotting the classics, or just to enjoy Brown's colorful pictures of Airstreams on the hoof, this compendium is essential. Mike Tribby

You won't be disappointed! I have been a huge fan of Bruce Littlefield's witty & insightful writing for a long time and couldn't believe my luck when I saw he was the author of this beautiful book. The photographs are accompanied by really interesting stories about what people have done with these cool traveling objects of art. It features trailers from all over the world and gave me great decorating ideas for my own house. This would make a wonderful Christmas gift.

This book is an awesome look into the interiors of Airstreams and a few other brands (very few). I enjoyed the book thoroughly. However, the glue binding on the book was very stiff and the binding has broken, letting some pages go free.

This publication offers many photos and ideas for Airstream enthusiast. Having purchased other books that are similar, this one offers a lot of modern ideas for those who are restoring. It opens one's imagination to the possibilities of the legendary Airstreams of times past and spans the horizon to the new. I think it would provide information for the novice as well as the seasoned Airstreamer. A job well done.

Love the book but the first time I opened it all the pages fell out of the binding. Amazon was great about sending me a replacement, but it too fell apart after being opened only about 3 times.

This is probably the best book I've see besides maybe the 75 year factory Wanderlust book on interiors. Lot's of great ideas that I've looked at many times now. Can't wait to put the ideas I've gained into place in our 68 Tradewind.

A real pleasure guide to creative ideas & a variety of designs to customize or upgrade your trailer. Excellent photography and well written with a fun sense of humor for what trailer life is all about. Great book if you own a trailer or are considering purchasing one.
