Wally Byam grew up camping, experiencing the joy of traveling. He envisioned helping others experience the open roads, the outdoors, and the freedom they provide. He began to create the now-famous airstream trailers; rapidly growing his new found business. The increasingly popular mobile lifestyle was met perfectly with Byam’s design. His company could not create units fast enough to fulfill the extremely high demand of orders, making his products even more sought after. His attention to detail and quality pulled the company through difficult economic times and left a legacy that is still alive today.
The RV One Superstore reached out to Big Statues to create a memorial, honoring the creative mind that changed how travel trailers were made. The life size statue of Wally Byam stands in their dealership in Tampa Florida.
