Streamlined Sundays: Miller Family Free Day – Oregon Travel Trailers & Trucks

August 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Sharon L. Miller and Family Community Free Day

The Shape of Speed: Oregon Travel Trailers & Trucks

In 1931, Airstream trailers began with Baker City, Oregon–born Wally Byam’s dream: to build a travel trailer that would move like a stream of air, be light enough to be towed by a car, and create first-class accommodations anywhere. Not too long after, Leland James, president of Portland-based trucking company Consolidated Freightways, approached manufacturers with his idea of building trucks with lightweight aluminum instead of traditional steel and eventually founded Freightliner. Join us for a festive day of vehicle streamlining Oregon-style with a chance to see new and vintage travel trailers on display courtesy of the Oregon Airstream Club along with a very special restored vintage Freightliner truck. 

Family programs are generously supported in part by Sharon L. Miller and Family, the Gordon D. Sondland and Katherine J. Durant Foundation, the Lamb Baldwin Foundation, and the Joseph E. Weston Public Foundation.
