In the ARC workshop today – a break from the bling! After the shiny and brightly coloured finish of our recently finished Dubai Airstream project, we’re now working with some traditional oak.
This 30ft Airstream Sovereign is being fitted with oak panelled end caps, oak panelled walls and an oak ‘barrel top’ ceiling. The oak ceiling is similar to the one we installed in Winnie the Winnebago (pictured bottom) which was inspired by the ceiling of a romany caravan.

Here are some professional shots of our latest completed project – the Dubai Airstream. This Airstream is now finished and ready to leave our workshop to begin the long journey to it’s new home in Dubai where it will be used for entertaining and business. All photos by our wonderful photographer Jeremy Phillips.
The side of the Airstream folds down to create a decking / lounge area – perfect for entertaining in sunnier climes…
There is also a pull-out awning to protect from the sun
Inside the Airstream features a gold upholstered cocktail cabinet and a recurring burkha design
Colour changing mood lights throughout and our trademark twinkling starry ceiling set the mood for entertainment or business.
A lava lamp is recessed into one of the worktops
In the ARC workshop today – this vintage 35ft super rare 1952 Vagabond trailer has just arrived at the ARC workshop from the US, ready for a refit with what can only be described as a wonderful Kardashian backside.
In the workshop today, the Dubai Airstream is looking good as the soft furnishings are fitted. The side of this Airstream opens up to create an outdoor entertainment area.
In the ARC workshop today: This fabulous golden cocktail bar is under construction in the Dubai Airstream – one of our luxury Airstream refit projects which is being shipped out to Dubai once it is completed.
The bar was decorated by our new upholsterer, Chris Burns. Chris renovates VW campers and will be joining ARC soon – so we will become even more of a hub for all things retro! You can also see in this picture that this Airstream is being fitted with one of our classic ‘starry sky’ lighting designs with twinkling, colour-changing LEDS set into the ceiling.
Meanwhile one of our early projects, the Weber Barbecue Airstream has come back to the workshop for a service and buff and polish ready to hit the road again this summer as it tours the UK demonstrating the delights of Weber barbecues. You can see more pictures of this Airstream project on our website gallery page and blog.
In the ARC workshop today – This made-to measure furniture has been coated in aluminium with solid rivets ready for another Airstream motorhome refit – watch this space to see the finished vehicle!

In the workshop today – this stage area is being created on the Dubai Airstream. Once finished, this deluxe project is going to be shipped out to Dubai where the Airstream and stage will be used for special events and weddings.
In the workshop today we’re doing some more Airstream polishing! Here you can see the team polishing an Airstream with a new side that they fitted earlier.
The temperature in the UK has certainly taken a dip in the last week or so but here in the ARC workshop some members of the team are keeping warm by polishing these Airstreams. It’s a tough job that requires a lot of repetition and elbow grease – but the results are certainly stunning!
