Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground is now providing upscale accommodations in its new Airstream trailer in “Airstream Alley.” The first trailer arrived in May, the second one arrived this week and a third is arriving shortly.
We are accepting reservations and already have the first two units booked for next weekend.
“The feedback thus far has been very good,” said Dan Baumann, general manager. “We’re not doing this in a hokey style but with little hints of nostalgia that will be integrated into a complete, modern camping experience.”
The first Airstream, a 1964 Safari, was joined this week by a 1971 Sovereign Land Giant. The third is a 1955 Whale Tail, which will be rented as a “tent cabin” (no bathroom) starting next weekend too.
They’re going in to the heart of the resort, close to all the special amenities that appeal to campers.
These totally renovated “silver bullets” provide a unique camping experience to those who harken back to an earlier era of camping but still prefer modern amenities, explained Baumann.
The resort’s owners are buying vintage Airstreams as they come available on the open market, Baumann explained. A special design team is restoring the units with modern day amenities such as mosaic tile, stainless steel kitchen fixtures, flat screen TVs, microwave ovens and air conditioners.
No two will be alike.
“All will be slightly different. Some will have queen beds, some will have split style beds a la Lucy Ricardo (in the “I Love Lucy” series) and some will have an integrated bunk bed. All will give a different experience and give people an opportunity to go the gamut with stripes, textures and bold colors. All will be very nice.”
“Airstream Alley” is being landscaped with 1950s-style landscaping, as well as a fire pit, outdoor furniture and globe outdoor lighting.
After the first six go into the “Alley,” the remainder will either be sited on the perimeter of the resort, away from all the hustle and bustle for guests who require more quiet surroundings, or can be integrated anywhere into the resort upon request.
