The legendary Airstream travel trailer, with its unmistakable shiny aluminum airplane fuselage design, has been the world's most recognized RV for over 80 years—also making Airstream the oldest and longest operating producer of RVs. This book is the first-ever to tell the remarkable Airstream success story through the unique medium of collectibles and memorabilia. The book contains some 370 pictures (both color and black-and-white) of more than 425 separate pieces of Airstream memorabilia from the authors' collection, including an amazing group of 285 postcards. Many items shown are quite scarce, and some are truly rare. The book begins with a foreword by Rich Luhr, the Editor and Publisher of Airstream Life magazine. Topics covered include Airstream history, advertising, rallies, international connections, look-a-likes, art, and humor. The unique approach taken here makes this book both an invaluable stand alone resource for information and a source of good old-fashioned entertainment. This book is also a price guide that provides an estimated value for every piece of memorabilia displayed.
