|JAMES & MARGE'S 35 YEARS IN AIRSTREAM CLUB
1978 - 2012
| This is a short story on the history of Airstrem trailer which was conceived in 1934 by an inventor by the name of Wally Byam. Wally built his first Airstream in 1936.
The club was started in Nova Scotia in 1955 named after the founder. Wally Byam Caravan Club Inc, with members from Canada, United States and Mexico.
The club is divided into 12 Regions from the Atlantic to the Pacific. We belong in Region 2 which have both National Capitals.
When we joined in 1978 there were 25,428 members with Region 2 having 3026 at that time. Membership has steadily declined over the years for various reasons but is still doing what we like to do best, travel in our Airstreams.
