by Doug Keister

If you think Airstream is the only streamlined "aircraft-style" travel trailer, think again! This book covers many others, from the Bowlus Road Chief to Silver Streaks and much, much more.

Travel back in time and experience America's silver "Masters of the Road" as the author explains the simple, historical beginning of the streamlined trailer, its evolution, and the state of vintage trailer collecting today. Find out how the challenges in making mobile spaces for living were addressed, how World War II affected trailer production and evolution, and how the RV and travel associations that sprang up around the country influenced the growth of this incredibly American obsession!
