This is our very rare 1947 Curtis Wright Airstream.
The exact date isn’t known when Curtis Wright contacted Wally and made him an offer to design and manage a new trailer venture. The best guess is mid-1945 after Germany’s defeat, and prior to the victory over Japan.
Curtis Wright had the financial backing and experience in manufacturing trailers to open a new company. Wally had the design knowledge that built the Airstream Clipper. The all-aluminum, rivet, and aircraft designed trailer was the goal of Curt (as Wally called CW).
In 1946, the Curtis Wright trailer was born.
Wally Byam, built the world’s first Airstream travel trailer in 1929 and founded the company we now know as Airstream in 1931. But long before then, Wally grew up with a curious spirit, an eye for design, and a creed to live a life that put adventure first. Today, the entire Airstream community keeps Wally’s spirit alive and well, carrying out that very same creed every day.
Melissa Belle was completely renovated from a bare shell. We had this professionally rebuilt by Airstream specialist company in London and to the highest standard possible.
