When I came across ARC: American Retro Caravans I was thrilled!!

They do the most amazing Airstream restorations I have ever seen.

They offer a wide range of services including interior and exterior repairs. 

They also locate, import and renovate Airstreams to order.

As you can see from the work of their experts,

they take vintage airstreams

and turn them into total luxury.

In the examples shown you can see the beautiful craftsmanship

and design expertise.  

Isn’t the corporate unit that is photographed below……stunning!

Weber has a spectacular trailer that was designed and constructed by ARC. It

is used at corporate events for catering. Check out all the bright colors!! How fun!!

Argosy Journey

by Rene on June 11, 2011

I am so happy to welcome Terrah as a guest to share a bit about her Argosy Journey thus far.

I have to admit when I saw Terrah’s Argosy from the outside…it was love at first sight!!

I can’t wait to see how she finishes the inside!

Welcome Terrah-

Hi, I am a girl with an awesome trailer. However, it wasn’t always so awesome.

 I bought it on a quick whim thinking I could buy it, move it and live in it,

but nothing is ever as it seems. It was a mess in the inner workings. So after a month

 long simple renovation for the basics, I was able to take it and live in it with

my 6 dogs for 8 months. During that time my water broke, my fridge stopped

working and I only had a stand-alone air conditioner. It was like camping and a

little difficult at times, but very educational on so many levels.

Over the winter, my dad and I gutted the whole interior and re built it and hand

sanded (air sander) the exterior in preparation for painting. It was a lot of blood,

sweat and tears, but I learned so much about how things work which is necessary

when living in it. I love having the Argosy, because they were only made during

limited years and having a painted airstream allows her to be awesome eye candy

on the road. I would recommend people know what they are getting into before

thinking of renovating; it is a lot of work, but totally worth it.

The inside is coming along beautifully ….from this
to this ….  Looking forward to checking in on Terrah’s Argosy journey from time to time.
Here is a link to her flickr photos, and her awesome Etsy store DriftwoodJones…  
Thank you so much Terrah!!!

Vagabond trailer

by Rene on June 2, 2011

The pictures of this vintage Vagabond trailer are fantastic.

The photographer took these amazing interior and exterior photo’s

while staying in Mafia, Texas at El Cosmico.

El Cosmico opened in the fall of 2009. The aim was to build a community

in a creative and sustainable space. El Cosmico offers accommodations in several

renovated vintage trailers, reinvented yurt structures called eco shacks,

a traditional 22 ft. diameter Sioux teepee, and a number of tent campsites.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photo’s Lucidist!
