Wally Byam Acolyte

Wally Byam says, "Trailering is practically a religion with me." He was the guy who invented the Airstream Trailer in 1937. I read his book, "Trailer Travel: The New Way to Adventurous Living." He writes about caravanning to Germany in 1948 soon after the war. He tells how the State Department tried to discourage a caravan to Africa in 1959 and how he had to put up $100,000 in Ethiopia to guarantee that the caravan would leave the country. Wally was an American original. This is not a photo of Wally.
