Today, both the Tiny House movement and a revival of interest in the roots of modern design have prompted many to revisit streamlined aluminum trailers. Architect Paul Welschmeyer did a superb job of adapting this Airstream interior for working and living space, making clever use of materials, color and shape to enhance the existing forms. Appliances are solar-powered, and the gauges and dials seem imported from a vintage episode of Science Fiction Theater. The repetitive circles may refer to the aircraft practice of drilling for lightness, as well as forming a link to all those rivets.
It seems fitting that the first Bayam and AIrstream trailers were built in Los Angeles. Another plant was later opened in Ohio, and Airstream still builds trailers in Jackson Center. Production of the Bowlus Road Chief has recently been revived by a Canadian couple who migrated to trailers from the tech industry.
