The Whale Tail goes camping

Here’s ‘Moby’ the Whaletail braving the half term weather in Dorset for the Queen’s jubilee celebrations. Clients Doug and Lucy met up with other Airstreaming friends, taking Moby on a trial run before finishing back at the workshop. Moby is being fitted out in iconic Airstream style with vintage fixtures and fittings and we’ll be sure to post more pictures of this trailer once it is complete.

In the workshop today: the Whale Tail is coming on!

Here are some photos of a vintage 1950’s Whale Tail Airstream that we are working on. Teak wood veneers and a mint green 50’s Smeg oven really work well in this retro feel Airstream.

The client wanted us to use vintage parts where ever possible so we have fitted original hinges and catches.
