We are very lucky to have some wonderful clients here at ARC Airstreams. A few weeks ago we were treated to a fantastic day out at Goodwood with Scott McCallum from Avian, courtesy of our corporate Airstream clients Senergy. Here’s a pic of Scott and his son and some of the fabulous vintage racing cars on the track.
In other news, two of our clients are competing in the Clipper Race challenge – Sue Fontannaz of Origin Wine, owner of the Lava Lamp Airstream is on board right now on the Invest Africa yacht with skipper Rich Gould and Scott is participating in a different leg of the challenge later on this year.
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.”
