Silver Bullet

Bowlus Road Chief

In 1934, Hawley Bowlus decided to apply his knowledge to a new market: towable trailers. His efforts became the Bowlus Road Chief. While the design was industry leading, the floundering economy of the Great Depression hampered sales. After selling 80 trailers, Bowlus decided he’d be better off making planes and shuttered Bowlus.

When car collector John Long found one of the original 80 made in the ’30s, he decided to resurrect Bowlus and bring the Road Chief back to market. In 2013 he succeeded: for the first time in 79 years new Bowlus Road Chiefs were being made, lived in and gawked at. Today the Bowlus Road Chief ($100,000+) still blows away new and vintage competition with spellbinding style and updates aplenty.

The trailer that inspired the AirStream

Design Spotlight: The Bowlus Road Chief

We’re all familiar with the iconic design of Airstream trailers. But what about the name Hawley Bowlus? He was the designer and builder of the Spirit of St. Louis — the record-breaking plane used by Lindberg to fly non-stop across Atlantic Ocean. But a few years later in 1934, he also created the forebear of the AirStream trailer, a stunning piece of technically advanced machinery dubbed the Hawley Bowlus Road Chief. Today, the classic Road Chief is reborn as a stunner with all the modern trappings.
