Historical Airstream: “Building Dreams Is Our Business” 2

Thanks to TrailerChix for sharing this really nifty video today on Facebook.

Southwest Coaches takes you back to another era, giving you an inside look at the care, design, and craftsmanship that goes into each and every Airstream product. This vintage documentary was filmed at the Airstream plant over 40 years ago; rare footage which is a must see video for anyone interested in Airstreams, Airstream’s roots, or any Airstream enthusiast. These same construction ideas, techniques, attention to detail, and craftsmanship are still utilized today. This video shows what separates Airstream from the rest of the travel trailer pack; and the ingenuity that makes Airstream the American icon that it is today.”


  1. What a great video. We went to the AS factory this summer and nothing much has changed except that the windows and doors are cut by a computer driven machine before the aluminum sheets are attached.
