In the workshop today – this 1952 Airstream Cruiser is getting the ARC treatment. The interior is being stripped out, the floor is coming out, the chassis is being painted and then it is being fitted with new insulation and a new floor as we repair it from the ground up. At the moment it is in a very sorry state so do stay tuned to the blog to see how this project progresses, we just love the original features like the door handles and original Airstream badge.
Here’s one of the first Airstreams ever renovated here at ARC. This 1956 Airstream Custom has come in for a quick re-buff to get it shiny for Glastonbury festival.
Today we’ve got a few more photos of the bedroom from our photoshoot with the 22ft Airstream Safari. It’s upholstered throughout with overhead storage in real cherrywood veneer and integrated lighting and spotlamp fixtures.
Here are the superb results of another glam finished project photoshoot with our favourite photographer, Jeremy Phillips. This 22ft 1959 Airstream Safari has been refitted throughout and has been a joy to work on for our upholstery team! The design was created by Andrea Chappell and ACME Studios and the interior construction and fit out was of course completed at our workshop in Somerset.
With real cherry wood veneers throughout and bright clean lines this Airstream is now heading off to Scotland where it will be used for family holidays. The feature that sets this Airstream apart from our other projects is the playful egg-shaped hole leading into the master bedroom, which is padded throughout in bright tomato coloured upholstery.
We’ll post some more piccies later in the week!
Frequent visitors to the blog may remember this Airstream – it’s the one with the egg-shaped hole leading into the bedroom – you can see the hole in the photo below.
