‘Airstream, king of RVs’


Dan Neil of the Los Angeles Times writes:

“I’ve never been much interested in the recreational vehicle lifestyle. You call this camping? Please. But I’ve always wanted an Airstream. Billed as the world’s oldest recreational-vehicle company – born in Los Angeles in 1932 but now in Jackson Center, Ohio – Airstream has had the rare good sense to keep its classic design classic.”

He continues: “An Airstream is a shiny telegraph from midcentury America, an object that reflects our grandparents’ restless, road-hungry energy…. So when the company asked whether I’d like to borrow one of its trailers for a week, it felt like being asked whether I wanted to borrow the 20th Century Limited or the Chrysler Building. Oh, yeah.”
