This Airstream Safari is all polished and shiny (above) – ready for summer. Inside you can see the new seating structure and TV (below).
And as one project nears completion – a new one begins! Here’s one we have just picked up from Port, a 1960 safari in the workshop for new lights, 240 electricity and brakes for starters…
In the workshop today – we’re still working away on the Airstream pool house project – here you can see the calorifier being installed underneath the seats, this will supply the hot water in this airstream.
In this picture you can see the corner basin unit being assembled, ready for the basin to go in and up above, a selection of spot lamps are being fitted into the ceiling, to light it up ready for a night time swim.
Apart from the Airstreams we are also being kept very busy preparing for our move to larger premises. We’ll still be in Somerset but you won’t be able to see the workshop and wave at us from the train any more if you’re heading towards London.
At the new place all of the trailers will now be worked on indoors as there is much more room to work and this will greatly improve our polishing times, which will no longer be weather dependent. We will miss our neighbours, especially Scotts snacks…although the entire workforce may drop a dress size [not that they need to!]
After each day in the workshop the guys are loading up stock to take over to the new premises where they have been working on making it into an ideal workspace. The wiring has gone in, and we have to build a new office and canteen. Selena is hoping for a desk that she can stand up and work at…We’ll send you some more news of the workshop as it happens, along with some more photos of our latest exciting Airstream projects, of course.
