FOTR - Families on the RoadAirstream



In 1929, Wally Byam built the world's first Airstream trailer. It started out as a tent contraption that he built on a Model T chassis, but it wasn't a lot of fun in the rain. So he replaced the tent with a teardrop-shaped permanent shelter - and added a stove and ice chest, too. It was easy to tow and caught the eye of other travelers, so much so that enough people asked Wally about it for him to decide it might be "a pretty good business to get into." Good thing he did!

We are a family of three with a grade-schooler, a cat and a love of travel. We spent nearly a month in our little 21' vintage Airstream in Summer 2016 and have been working to go fulltime since then. We are planning to spend at least a year on the road but have no real desire to ever come back.

Skippin' Town: A family, an Airstream, America

Convinced that a year in cold, rainy London was no way to spend quality time with their daughters, Claire Landon and Daniel Spring set their sights on America. The move into a 17'' 1966 Airstream Caravel took a bit of adjustment for preschooler Sophia, but life on the road is all baby Lulu knows.

AirstreamNew niché in high-design renovations of Vintage Airstream trailers.

Hofmann Architecture is now introducing a cutting-edge mobile office concept that moves at the pace and place of our clients. It was for this reason that we recently renovated a 17-foot,1967 Caravel Airstream, which supplements our brick and mortar design firm and work yard in Downtown Santa Barbara. The 44-year old sustainably-renovated Airstream was entirely designed and built in-house.

This mobile workspace has allowed us to take on design and build projects anywhere in the US. This new capability also provides our clients with a highly-personalized and efficient level of top shelf services.
