The Kid Should See This

A time lapse glimpse into the Airstream Factory

Travel to Jackson Center, Ohio, where Airstream’s iconic silver travel trailers have been made in their factory since the 1950s. This time lapse promo video shares how their team manages large machines and small details to bring their product together.

There are more factory videos in the archives, including how pinball machines are made from start to finish at Stern Pinball, building a 737 in just nine days, Yolanda Baker, last of the disco ball makers, how the Baccarat crystal studio makes a blown crystal chandelier, and the making of a Steinway Grand Piano from start to finish.
