Tiny Teardrop Trailers: Made in the USA

AutoNXT Logo By Eric Bellscheidt of AutoNXT | Slide 1 of 73:      In the early days of motoring after the turn of the 20th century, Americans managed extended road trips by staying with friends or camping in tents outside their cars. As car travel and camping grew by necessity during the Great Depression — and afterward as highways improved — DIY-prone road warriors built tiny, towable structures for sleeping and gear storage, and the travel trailer was born. Perhaps the most recognizable travel trailer is the shiny aluminum Airstream, first designed and built by Wally Byam in the 1930s.
