One of the great things about an Airstream is that you can use it for anything – not just travelling but also as a static installation in your garden to be used as an office, spare room or a space for entertaining – and as it’s a temporary structure you don’ actually need planning permission to put it there. You may have been following our progress on the Airstream Safari that we’ve been converting into a luxury pool house for one lucky customer – that project is almost finished now and now we have another one beginning. This Airstream Tradewind is in a bit of a sorry state at the moment but over the coming weeks we are going to be converting it into a deluxe bedroom suite. So keep your eyes on the blog to see how it’s getting on!

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?
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.
