Art Castaillo's Caravan Airstream

Here is an interesting article on Airstream's history. Airstream was rather infatuated with aluminum anodizing in different colors. Some of the exterior panels were anodized, and others weren't. Easter eggs some called these trailers. Of course Wally had his all gold trailer, which now sits at the Jackson Center factory.

Thanks Joe: Very interesting history research on this unique Airstream. I was happy to see it restored and it looks quite nicely done.

I'm always a day late and a dollar short. But I did find the Vintage Camper story interesting and thought other vintage Airstreamers would enjoy it.

Hi David, I think you for posting that article as I had not seen that version before. I just didn't want the long time owner "Mark in Modesto" (never knew his full name) to be forgotten from history as it was during his ownership that this trailer was first re-identified.
