One of a kind airstream? lanny 1-10-03  
1 Posts Posted - 01/09/2003 :  11:34:29 PM          
I have a "Wally Byam's Holiday" trailer. I'm told the Wally Byam Holiday is on the official list from the WBCCI. Its riveted aluminum construction, has flat sides and the exterior skin has only a few very minor blemishes. It was made at the Jackson Center, Ohio plant. Serial number #1094. My estimate is it was made in 1952. The interior is in respectable shape and still has the ice box, toilet, sink, and stove etc.. The wood floor is rotten in the rear. I was looking for a ball park estimate of its value for insurance purposes. So far I have not heard from anyone who has ever seen one like it. Any suggestions?

Did you ever find another Holiday or get a solid idea of #1094's value?

Thought I'd let you know what I found out.
A very helpful fellow, Al Hesselbart emailed me that his friend Bud Cooper is very familiar with the Holiday and nearly owned one when new.  Bud says it was a small production prototype model made only in 1954 to see if the customer would buy the caravan styling as opposed to the typical Airstream styling.  The test failed and they were never put into real market production.  The prototype unit was built by a Jack Oakley and John Taylor for Wally.

What ever happened to your 'Holiday'? I hope you are getting it back in shape as it sounds rare. Let us know.

My parents have a vintage 1954 Wally Byam Holiday travel trailer. Are there any websites for people interested in purchasing these??
