For Airstream founder Wally Byam, the riveted aluminum travel trailer he dreamed up was not simply a product but the gateway to a Way of Life. He devoted his life to building the finest travel trailer on the market, providing for his employees, and giving customers the adventure of a lifetime.
Wally Byam passed away in 1962 after losing his battle with cancer. Before his passing, he left behind his dream embodied a personal Creed he committed to paper sometime after World War II. Today, 125 years after his birth, Airstream is still guided by Wally's vision.
