About Vintage Vacations

If you fancy a real escape, then take a trip to another time and get retro, old-school cool in some classic Airstream trailers at Vintage Vacations
The Airstream an incredible feat of engineering and a joy to behold, with effortless, curved lines, a sparkle of silver and a spacious, luxurious interior. This is no ordinary caravan – it’s style on wheels. The early riveted aluminium trailer was replaced by more modern motorhomes from the 1980s, but the sturdy construction and timeless design of the original has led to a renaissance for these classic caravans. They’ve gradually been appearing in trailer parks and movie sets in the States in recent years. Perhaps more unexpected is to see ten particularly fine examples in a small field near Newport on the Isle of Wight. This is the home of Vintage Vacations, brainchild of photographer Frazer Cunningham and stylist Helen Carey. Their love for all things retro compelled them to import initially just two of these beautiful caravans, a 1965 Tradewind and a 1971 Safari.  Now, however, there are fifteen trailers and caravans of varying sizes, forming a unique vintage 'caravan park' and a memorable way to spend a week or so on the Isle of Wight.
