Frenchtown Inn – Airstream

We will be featuring a “bonus” house tour on our Historic Frenchtown House Tour. Chris and Larry Ford will have their “home away from home”–their beautiful Airstream trailer–on display at the Frenchtown Inn, the final stop on the June 2nd house tour. In addition to touring the Inn, known as the Henry Opitz house, Chris and Larry will have their rig parked out back for tourgoers to visit.


Here’s some information on the history of the Airstream:

Wally Byam built the first Airstream in 1929.  Over the years many changes have occurred but the classic lines and aluminum body remains.  Airstream is the oldest manufacturer of recreational vehicles in the US, so we thought it might be fitting to share ours in our beloved old neighborhood.  Ours is a 2014 thirty foot Flying Cloud, we call it The Phoenix because it is a resurrection of our old Airstream that came to an early demise in a crash last year.  We hope you will enjoy seeing it as much as we enjoy camping in it.
