the Weber Airstream gets a polish

The Weber Airstream has come in for a service and a good polish up after a summer of touring the UK demonstrating Weber’s fab range of barbecues to a hungry British public. What a wonderful  load of sunshine they’ve had this year – here’s hoping next summer will be the same.

We’re in Land Rover World!

Airstream and Land Rover

We are very proud to have our Weber Exprience Roadshow Airstream featured in this month’s edition of Land Rover World magazine. You can read a taster of the article here but to read the full piece you’ll have to buy the magazine!

In the absence of a huge American truck, we find that most of our customers prefer to use a Land Rover to tow their Airstream with, once they leave our workshop. Here at ARC we use a Land Rover Discovery and many of our customers – such as Dan from Weber – use a Land Rover Defender, as the article explains:

“Originally the ‘Weber Experience’ roadshow was lugged around the country with a Shogun but, as head chef and driver Dan Cooper stated, it just never felt up to the job and a few scary handling moments on long hills made them rethink their towing vehicle options.

“Thankfully they opted for a Defender 110 and even in a totally unmodified form it performs flawlessly. Dan recalls “most of the time you don’t even know you have a massive ‘van like this behind you.”
