At American Retro Caravans Ltd we work very closely with our customers on each project to create the perfect American Airstream trailer or luxury RV to meet their needs. Here is some feedback from some of our satisfied clients:
"Dear Kathy, It has been a wonderful experience and journey working with you and Darren - an absolute pleasure as we embarked on the creative process - thanks for all your ideas, patience and attention to detail - it's been wonderful working with a team that truly value the art of craftsmanship and love creating unique experiences!"
"This project started as an idea to create a design-led, innovative and functional mobile corporate exhibition trailer whilst somehow fulfilling a responsibility to restoration and to the regeneration of an aging vehicle. Through research, we found Kathy and Darren at American Retro Caravans and the rest, as they say, is history.
"Just a few words to say how delighted we are with the Airstream show-van you supplied us with. We put a lot of trust in your professionalism & creativity, and in no way were we disappointed!
"Our project began in a vast empty warehouse in Watford. Our first live sighting of Airstream Sovereign LandYacht no T3I-O6J-3602; 'a travel trailer' completed 17-06-76 at Cerritos, California was in a space big enough to conceal an entire tank army. (pic). The 1976 trailer looked fine and dandy to me, because I didn't know what to look out for. All the windows were covered up with vinyl and the interior had several tons of chipboard shelving lining the walls pretending to be record racks. The Airstream had seen hard service at music festivals on behalf of Three 'the mobile phone company made for the internet'. It was no longer needed on the festival circuit and was going for a song. More about that later. Being parked indoors meant you couldn't see any sign of leaks.
"As owners of Huntsman, we are used to our clients commissioning totally bespoke pieces. So when it came to adding two bedrooms to our country house, we thought of a bespoke commission of a legendary airstream, and chose Kathy and the ARC Airstreams team after seeing some photos on the internet of how they'd translated someone's dream into a rolling room. And we wanted a rolling one bedroom shooting lodge for us. Huntsman specialise in bespoke tweeds to make totally custom shooting suits and other garments, so there was only a short distance to cross to use those as a backdrop for the decor. We specified the function, i.e. we'll never cook or eat in the Airstream - so no need for kitchen or dining room - but it would need room for a cloakroom where wet clothes brought back from a day's shooting could be hung to dry.
"I am not someone who generally gives out glowing references but in the case of Kathy and Darren I am more than happy to do so.
"The design and build of our Airstream was a genuinely enjoyable experience with the flexibility to incorporate our ideas but the practicality to keep things to a budget and timescale. Everything was correctly quoted and built to a very high specification with no corner cutting. The finished product really did turn out to be very special and unique. I'm not sure if you have seen the pictures of ours when finished but it really did exceed expectations and the quality of the finish was really very high.
"Thank you for all your and your colleagues’ expert work in restoring our 1953 Clipper Airstream. Although the interior space that you had to work within was small, you have created a relaxing, functional and stylish environment. The transformation is stunning. We are particularly pleased with our Cinderella toilet in the bathroom which incinerates our waste and reduces the amount of water we use in the Airstream.
