Airstream making sales at auto show

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The Airstream trailer company, from a corner of the massive Ford footprint at the L.A. Auto Show, reports a booming year, according to The Los Angeles Times.

“We’re crushing it,” Chief Executive Officer Bob Wheeler said from inside one of the company’s signature polished-aluminum capsules. “We’re up 18 percent year to date over last year.”

Wheeler told The Los Angeles Times a new production facility has helped Airstream catch up with back orders – but not all the way. The factory is still backlogged “about 20 weeks,” Wheeler said. “We’d like that to be closer to 10.”
