Airstream Registry
Airstream Name
Year 1935
Make Bowlus
1935 Bowlus
Overview This is a wonderful photo I came across on the CITROËNVIE website (the name simply means Citroen Life).

I asked if I could post it here and they graciously gave their approval.

I love those wonderful old Citroens almost as much as I love Airstream trailers. I don't know what a 1961 ID19 has as a tow rating, but a Bowlus doesn't weigh much, does it?

The Citroen is a large car by European standards, or was in the fifties. Engine, 4 cylinder 2 liter about 100HP (more or less depending on year).

Self leveling hydraulic suspension.

The most streamlined car of its time. The kind of car Hawley Bowlus would have approved of.

Very interesting combination, would like to know how it performs on the road.
