The company was founded by Wally Byam, who began building Masonite
trailers in his backyard in Los Angeles during the late 1920s.
Byam, a lawyer by training, published a magazine selling "how-to"
kits to customers wishing to build their own trailers. He then
acquired the struggling Bowlus Company. In 1936 Byam introduced the
"Airstream Clipper", which was essentially a rebadged 1935 Bowlus,
with the door relocated. The design cut down on wind resistance and
thus improved gas mileage. It was the first of the now familiar
sausage-shaped, silver aluminum Airstream trailer. Of more than 400
trailer builders operating in 1936, Airstream was the only one to
survive the Depression. During World War II, travel became a luxury
most could not afford and non-military industries faced an acute
aluminum shortage. When World War II ended, the economy boomed, and
people's attention once again turned towards leisure travel. Byam's
company went back into production in 1948.
