Brands Worked On

The Flxible Company, not unlike many other companies, had a modest, but unique beginning. In 1912, Hugo H. Young had an idea for a new type of motorcycle sidecar.  In 1936, it was decided that Flxible would concentrate on inter city coaches, and all its resources were devoted to developing a coach that would be outstanding in this field. In 1939, Flxible introduced its famous 29 passenger Clipper powered by a modified straight-eight Buick engine. Flxible produced a variety of models of one and two level inter city passenger buses through the 1950’s and 1960’s that have since been converted to motor homes.


1945-1960 Tulsa, Oklahoma

Born out of the riches of the oil boom by one of the country’s wealthiest The company was started as an aeronautical college and airplane manufacturer by William G Skelly founder of the Skelly Oil Company.  After WWII Spartan shifted to building the “Cadillac” of manufactured housing.  In the late 1930’s Spartan was acquired by the Getty Corporation owned by the billionaire and oil tycoon J. Paul Getty.  Mr. Getty first visited the plant in 1939. He was very impressed with the quality of inventory, and the management of the company.  In 1962 the plant closed and the company went into the insurance and financial business.


Herbert Mark Reeves Jr. moved to Elkart Indiana in 1952 and founded several area travel trailer companies, including Covered Wagon Travel Trailers, Easy Traveler, Bon-Aire Trailers and DeCamp Trailers. He also took part in founding the RV/Manufacture Hall of Fame.  There were six model floor plans available in the 1960’s.  According to the DeCamp travel trailer ad they had Birch interiors, redwood cabinets, colored appliances with harmonized interior.


Mallard Coach Corporation was founded in 1952 by Sylvester W. “Vesy” Hron and was located in West Bend, Wisconsin. Mallard Coach Corp. initially manufactured travel trailers. During the 1960’s tent campers, truck campers, motor homes and snow mobiles were added to their product line. In keeping with the competition the Canvasback hard top camping trailer was introduced in 1966. It featured an aluminum top with 77 inches of space between the floor and the roof. Sylvester Hron sold Mallard Coach Corp. to The Entwistle Company based out of Providence, R.I. in 1969. He served Mallard as the chairman until he retired from that post in 1971.


The company was created by Wally Byam who began building trailers out of Masonite in his backyard in Los Angeles during the late 1920s.[3] Byam published a magazine selling “how-to” kits to customers wishing to build their own trailers. In 1936, Byam introduced the “Airstream Clipper”, which was essentially a rebadged 1935 Bowlus Road Chief, with the door relocated from the front to the side. The design cut down on wind resistance and thus improved fuel efficiency. It was the first of the now familiar sausage-shaped, silver aluminum Airstream trailers. In 1936, the first Airstream was introduced. Named the Clipper, after the first trans-Atlantic flying boat. Sold for $1,200 it was able to house four people, had electric lights and a water supply.[4] Of more than 400 travel trailer builders operating in 1936, Airstream was the sole survivor of the Depression.[5]

During World War II, travel became a luxury most could not afford and non-military industries faced an acute aluminum shortage. When World War II ended, the economy boomed, and people’s attention once again turned towards leisure travel. Byam’s company went back into production in 1948. In July 1952, a new facility in Jackson Center, Ohio, was established. 1979 saw the last Airstreams to be manufactured in California.
