Video shows an in-depth look at the making of iconic travel trailer

It looks like a silver bullet gliding across the highway with its rounded edges and platinum finish glistening in the light.

Of course, we are talking about the Airstream travel trailer.

A video posted on gives viewers an in-depth time-lapse of the building process for the recognizable trailer.

The video takes place in the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio, starting with the materials used to build everything from the body of the trailer to the living quarters inside.

The video transitions to each piece, from the cabinets to the large alignment tool used to form the iconic shape.

The first Airstream travel trailer was built in 1929 by founder Wally Byam.

While there have been many variations of the trailer, the egg-like shape has always been a main feature throughout its evolution.
