The Owner Says

The Airstream Safari

Measuring 22 feet long, this beautiful old Airstream Safari sleeps 2 people on 1 fold out double and the option of a 'dinette' that converts to a small double to make a second bed.

  • Heating – electrical fan heaters – trailers are well insulated and heat up well but do bring warm PJ’s and your slippers for cold weather!
  • Bathroom facilities – Hot water showers and a bathroom sink – toilets are not on trailers – we have a toilet facility on site (separate ladies and gents with extra showers) Chem loos are available for hire if this is a must for you – £25 fully serviced.
  • Full size cooker and small fridge (fridge has a teeny icebox freezer)
  • Kitchen facilities –  A full complement of equipment (including teapots and cafetieres) – you don’t need to bring anything – just ask if there is something specific you would like to check.details. All crockery etc is basic and new so don’t sweat the breakages! This van has a dining booth – we love these!

All appliances are American (including hairdryers) and we will supply you with a travel plug for your phone, laptop etc. Some items cannot be used directly – Hair straighteners for example but don’t worry – we can sort alternative power supply solutions for these if necessary.
