But parking an Airstream in their Mil- ford driveway isn't out of character. This is
one of the nation's coolest vehicles. Last year Chronicle Books published

Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum's "Salute to Aluminum" exhibition. There
was an Airstream on screen in last year's Charlie's Angels movie and this

travel trailer, “...saw early on that the legions of wheat harvesters, cotton pickers,
journeymen ...

and romance to these trailers," explains Bryan Burkhart, co-author of Airstream:
The History of the Land Yacht. "With their streamlined design, they evoke a
period that is very stylish." Byam took aluminum-alloy trailer bodies built by
