With a passion for Drive-Ins, shooting movies and Airstreams, Mark Gudenas (host and proprietor) built his dream Airstream Hotel Resort ~ located in the heart of Southern Utah’s Red Rock Canyon Country. Shooting Star Drive-In Airstream Hotel features 360-degree views of the Grand Staircase, the Escalante Mountains and Dixie National Forest. You can choose from 8 different Airstreams as your accommodations, each decorated to resemble the dressing trailer of a Hollywood Movie Star while they were shooting on location. Or bring your own Airstream, full hook-ups available. And what could be more fun than hanging out after dark to watch an old flick at a 1960′s inspired Drive-In theatre? Sounds like a good time to me!

Just one hour outside of Cape Town, South Africa is one of the most luxurious and swanky Airstream hotels that I have ever discovered. Nestled among a fruit farm is Old Mac Daddy Luxury Trailer Park. The resort consists of 10 vintage Airstreams, 2 lake-side units and one large designer family house each designed with its own theme and charm. You have to check out the video to get an upclose feel for this amazing property. If I’m ever lucky enough to visit South Africa, a visit to Old Mac Daddy is on my bucket list!
“Part wholesome caravan park, part designer farm lodge, Old Mac Daddy Trailer Hotel is a new chapter in adventure, escapism and pure relaxation. Set on the pine-whispering slopes of a beautiful corner of the Elgin Valley, Old Mac Daddy is a collection of vintage Airstream Trailer Suites, each designed by an artist, designer or creative living and working in Cape Town. Fully catered and serviced; Old Mac Daddy offers trailer units with themed bedrooms and earth-friendly living spaces. A big designer barn is the communal area where all meals are served. Visit the Grolsch bar or take a dip in the swimming pool, explore the area or just relax.”

Today we virtually visit Bisbee, Arizona at another Airstream/Vintage trailer park, The Shady Dell where “Mid-century Modernism is alive and well”. There are eleven vintage trailers to choose from for your 1950′s experience! Since 1927, The Shady Dell has been welcoming travelers who are looking for family getaways and exploration. Located on Route 80, the brother to the famous Route 66, it’s the perfect location to stop for either full RV hookups or to rent one of the funky, retro trailers. Don’t forget to eat at Dot’s Diner which is only steps from your trailer. Take a step back in time and have a ball!
G’Day mates! From what I understand, there are not many Airstreams in Australia. So, much to my surprise, I found a hotel that owns an Airstream that you can rent as your hotel room. As many of my followers know, I think this is a “good as gold” way to chill out on vacation. Who needs another hotel room~why not try an Airstream? So, the next time you are in Aussie land, check out the Atlantic Byron Bay. The ‘Stream is located on the properties Driftwood guesthouse garden. This Ocean Breeze Airstream is luxe, decked out with a double bed, private shower and loo, high-end linens and towels~you’ll feel like you are at a seaside cottage. Give it a burl. Hooroo!!
