This unique Airstream project is nearly finished. It has a wood-panelled barrel top ceiling with black strapping and the wood panelled walls have been painted with traditional and quintessentially British paint by Farrow and Ball. We will have a photo shoot featuring this Airstream to show you how it all looks once it is complete.
In the workshop today – this luxurious Airstream project is nearing completion.
It has wood panelling, a hand made pippy oak bed and another ARC first – two stained glass panels in the ceiling! Featuring pegasus in the lounge area and two doves above the bed. The roof of this 31ft Airstream has banded wooden strips in a bow-top caravan style and the air con has been revamped to fit in with the rest of the new interior design.
We’ll be sure to post a full shoot of the finished project when it’s done so keep checking the blog to see how it looks when it’s finished!
Here are some photos of our latest finished project – an Airstream 310 Motorhome.
This motorhome was completely refitted here at the ARC workshop. The interior was inspired by the iconic Andrew Martin Spitfire Chair – featuring handmade riveted aluminium furniture with distressed leather.
The Motorhome has an impressive V8 engine, all new electrics and plumbing, a wet central heating system, surround sound system, galley kitchen with solid wood worktops and hand built aluminium cupboards. The bathroom has a large shower with toilet and basin. There is also a dinette, emperor sized bed with Mulberry velvet cushions and a rock and roll bed. All of the interior was hand built by our team at the ARC workshop.
The owners of this Airstream motorhome are based in Cornwall and will be making the motorhome available to rent. You can contact them through their website: www.tregulland.co.uk.

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 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.

This Airstream project is finished and has just had an expert shoot with our fabulous photographer, Jeremy Phillips.
The interior design for this Airstream project was inspired by the Ralph Lauren Corral Canyon Collection and ARC designer Kathy was in her element designing and sourcing the materials for the interior. You may have seen some shots of this Airstrream as a work-in-progress on our blog as we laminated the interior with that exquisitely patterned pippy oak which compliments the rest of the interior perfectly with a comfortable, American home feel.
After the Whaletail Airstream made it’s way to a new home last week, we’re getting stuck into our next project already: taking out the interior of this vintage Airstream, ready for a luxury refit. This Airstream is going to have a very decadent and luxurious interior and will be shipped out to a client in Dubai once it is finished.
As always we’ll be blogging every step of the process, so watch this space to see this Airstream being transformed by our dedicated team in the coming months!
