Happy New Year from ARC

by ARC on December 31, 2013

Happy new year!

Well another year has whizzed past here at ARC . We’ve finished some more great Airstream projects and the workshop is still full with more Airstreams being restored and repaired every day.

One of our other little projects that we launched this year was our online Airstream shop selling new and vintage parts and Airstream accessories – have you checked it out yet?

Airstream Wheel

We’ve got everything from Airstream wheels to lights, nameplates, stickers and even an Airstream doormat to welcome your guests and make your trailer home-from-home complete! This year we’re hoping to find time to add an ‘American Home range’ with hand-picked imported American accessories to make your Airstream stand out from the crowd, including Native American blankets, brightly coloured cushions and other exclusive accessories all specially chosen by Kathy, our Airstream interior designer.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients and the people who read this blog, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We can’t wait to see what exciting new projects the new year brings and of course we’ll share them all with you – from gutted shell to the finished article. Wishing you all the best for 2014! From everyone at American Retro Caravans.

Airstream Christmas

Well it’s been another very busy year at ARC.

We’ve completed some great projects including the Apollo 70 Cocktail Bar Airstream and the Airstream Safari with the Egg-Shaped Hole and gained more lovely clients. We’re winding down for Christmas now and decided to take a look at how other Airstream owners are celebrating across the internet!
