Huntsman Airstream on tour

Here are a few snaps of one of the Airstream hunting lodges which are going to be used as promotional wagons for the Huntsman brand. This one is now in Berkshire and getting ready for a tour of Germany where it will be participating in a photo shoot for the new season Huntsman collection. It may also be used in London for a press event before winding up as a lodge and guest room for it’s owner. These two Airstreams are now finished so stay tuned to the blog for some big glossy photos of the interior coming soon – in the meantime here are a few pics to tempt you!

The Airstream Lodge

the Airstream chassis is ready for refinishing

This Airstream is going to be transformed into a hunting lodge for one of our clients. Here you can see we’re right at the start of the project. The interior has been completely stripped out and Darren is cleaning the chassis – a very dusty job!

In the first photo you can see the chassis behind the wheel arches after it has been wire brushed to remove the rust – it is now ready for refinishing.

Tradewind bedroom suite

One of the great things about an Airstream is that you can use it for anything – not just travelling but also as a static installation in your garden to be used as an office, spare room or a space for entertaining – and as it’s a temporary structure you don’ actually need planning permission to put it there. You may have been following our progress on the Airstream Safari that we’ve been converting into a luxury pool house for one lucky customer – that project is almost finished now and now we have another one beginning. This Airstream Tradewind is in a bit of a sorry state at the moment but over the coming weeks we are going to be converting it into a deluxe bedroom suite. So keep your eyes on the blog to see how it’s getting on!

Happy New Year from ARC

Happy new year!

Well another year has whizzed past here at ARC . We’ve finished some more great Airstream projects and the workshop is still full with more Airstreams being restored and repaired every day.

One of our other little projects that we launched this year was our online Airstream shop selling new and vintage parts and Airstream accessories – have you checked it out yet?

Airstream Wheel

We’ve got everything from Airstream wheels to lights, nameplates, stickers and even an Airstream doormat to welcome your guests and make your trailer home-from-home complete! This year we’re hoping to find time to add an ‘American Home range’ with hand-picked imported American accessories to make your Airstream stand out from the crowd, including Native American blankets, brightly coloured cushions and other exclusive accessories all specially chosen by Kathy, our Airstream interior designer.
