Celebrate 90 years of the world's most iconic travel trailer. Featuring the indelible "bicycle towing an Airstream" image from the company's early marketing efforts, this shirt is a super soft way to recognize the legacy of an American icon.
Around the time Wally Byam was designing the first Airstream travel trailers, French cyclist Alfred Letourneur was racking up victories. In 1938 Letourneur beat the motor-paced world speed record on a bicycle. He was able to reach speeds over 90 miles per hour. But to Airstreamers around the world, Alfred Letourneur may best be known as the man who famously pulled an Airstream travel trailer on a bike. In 1947, as part of an Airstream publicity campaign, Letourneur pulled a 22-foot Airstream Liner at the Van Nuys Airport in California. The image became the basis for an iconic Airstream logo from that era.
