The Weber Experience Airstream is also in for a service this week. This Airstream tours the UK and ROI demonstrating Weber’s excellent range of barbecues, offering advice on grilling techniques and some delicious summer recipes. You can see some more pictures of this Airstream which has a fold down side that turns into a stage on our website gallery and on the Weber Experience website.
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.
We’ve been really busy in the workshop with a lot of new projects being started. We’ve also finished a couple of great Airstreams for clients and sent them off – but we haven’t had time for one of our classy photo shoots of any of our finished work. We are planning some soon; but in the meantime here are some shots of an Airstream we refitted as a corporate vehicle for Senergy, an oil company who take it around Europe to various events:

As promised here are some exclusive shots of the recently finished Huntsman 65 Airstream – the second of a pair of luxury Airstreams which were commissioned by the Huntsman brand. These Airstreams will be used as promotional vehicles before ending up being used as a pair of luxury guest lodges for this client.

As you can see this Airstream is decorated in a similar style to the Huntsman 68 Airstream, with some variations in design – such as silver rather than copper bathroom fittings – giving it some individual flair:
Here are the two Airstreams together:

We love to see how our corporate and catering customers getting on with business and this week we caught up with the Apollo 70 Airstream Bar, who are doing very well in the year since we completed this project.
The bar is used by the Jockey Club for all of their events and was also used at the Rugby World Cup and the Cricket 20/20 cup at the Oval.
There are also some stunning photos of the bar on their website, taken by Tim Wallace of Ambient life – go and check them out!
As promised here are some external shots from our Huntsman Airstream photo shoot the other week. This is Huntsman 68, the first of two Airstreams we refitted for the Huntsman brand – the second one is now finished too and we’ll be having a photo shoot with that one too, so stay tuned for more delicious Airstream pictures, coming soon!
Following hot on the tail of the Huntsman 68 Airstream which we featured on the blog last week – the Huntsman 65 is now finished and has left the workshop. This Airstream was the second of two custom projects for the Huntsman brand, which will be used for promotions before being used as luxury lodges on their owners estate. Here are a few snaps of Huntsman 65 to whet your appetite and we’ll be posting much more once this Airstream has been photographed by our wonderful photographer Jeremy Phillips.
Stay tuned to the blog find out about our next exciting project which the team have already started working on!
