Tour Wally And Stella Byam’s Gold Airstream

Esther and Jacob document their travels on their website Local Adventurer. They’re currently traveling in an Airstream trailer throughout the United States.

Recently they had the chance to visit the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio. While there, the couple toured one of the most eye-popping Airstreams around, Airstream-founder Wally Byam’s golden camper!

Simple, small, but somehow not cramped… Not bad…

Nicknamed “Stella’s Gold Airstream” the camper dates back to the mid-1950s, and was built for Wally’s wife, Stella, for a European caravan.

Sold around to various owners for the next few decades, the golden trailer finally ended up back at Airstream HQ in 1992.
