The Weber Airstream has come in for a service and a good polish up after a summer of touring the UK demonstrating Weber’s fab range of barbecues to a hungry British public. What a wonderful load of sunshine they’ve had this year – here’s hoping next summer will be the same.

In the absence of a huge American truck, we find that most of our customers prefer to use a Land Rover to tow their Airstream with, once they leave our workshop. Here at ARC we use a Land Rover Discovery and many of our customers – such as Dan from Weber – use a Land Rover Defender, as the article explains:
“Originally the ‘Weber Experience’ roadshow was lugged around the country with a Shogun but, as head chef and driver Dan Cooper stated, it just never felt up to the job and a few scary handling moments on long hills made them rethink their towing vehicle options.
“Thankfully they opted for a Defender 110 and even in a totally unmodified form it performs flawlessly. Dan recalls “most of the time you don’t even know you have a massive ‘van like this behind you.”
