One of Airstream’s most defining features is its aluminum exterior shell. However, it wasn’t the first travel trailer company to use the shiny metal. That honor goes to Bowlus – a 1930s travel trailer company that produced an estimated 80 travel trailers before ending production in 1937.

Motor 1 reported that over half of the original trailers are around today. The brand roared back to life several years ago as Bowlus Road Chief with the aluminum-clad On The Road model, and it’s now introducing the Road Chief Endless Highways that’s perfect for those looking to live off the grid.

Bowlus combines its off-the-grid capability with a suite of upscale features. Battery power can operate the high-efficiency 12-volt fridge/freezer and microwave. A two-burner Italian cooktop integrates into the countertop while the trailer also features a stand-alone shower, stainless-steel sink, full-length mirror, vanity with medicine cabinet, and continuous hot water. The trailer also has an 3G/4G modem and GPS that provides a private Wi-Fi network.
