Here's some info I found online regarding the Airstream/Beatrice Foods relationship

"Airstream was purchased totally by Beatrice Foods in December 1967.

Thor Industries purchased Airstream in September 1979."
From www.wbcci1.org/whathappen/manfhist.htm

You may also want to do a seach through the VACList Archives...I came up with 65 posts regarding this subject...

Happy reading ~

Shari

Airstream was not purchased by Beatrice foods until 1972 or 1973. The trailers were built well and production reached 22 trailers per day in the early seventies.

I just posted the quote from the WBCCI linked website that states it was December of 1967...Maybe the first trailers to be "totally designed by Beatrice" didin't roll off the line until the early seventies...
