Watch Airstream trailers being assembled in this timelapse

In the early fifties, the Airstream company was growing fast and decided to move its factory from Los Angeles to Jackson Center, Ohio. Nearly 66 years later, they're still building their iconic silver "canned hams" there. In this promotional timelapse video, you can see how they get assembled. One thing to note is that they put all the rivets in by hand. (You may want to turn off the music though, it doesn't seem to be a good fit for the content. Shouldn't it be something more... vintage?) ...

Affordable and compact Dinky Dub camper offers a modular twist to the vintage VW look

Weighing in at just 1,000 pounds, the Dinky Dub does come with some sacrifices when compared with its full-sized sibling.

In return for these tradeoffs, the Dinky Dub starts at just $12,800—a fraction of the cost of the larger models.
