Our status as an appointed seller of the iconic US caravan has taken immediate effect, and British caravan owners can look forward to an exciting new range of trailers which epitomise luxury; including the Airstream Missouri, Airstream Yukon and Airstream Colorado.

Anyone who has been lucky enough to travel in the US will testify to the country’s wonderful wide open spaces, and Airstream has been a pioneering caravan manufacturer stateside since 1935, with the release of their seminal model – The Clipper. The inimitable, attractive look and feel of the Airstream will now be accessible to the UK market, and at Salop Leisure, we take great pride in presenting caravan owners with a superb collection from this globally revered brand.

We see great potential for Airstream - the signature polished and rounded aluminium look made famous by founder Wally Byam is set to start winning many British admirers.  It’s a new era for luxury in the British caravan market, and we are pleased to be at the forefront.  Airstream has been interested in expanding operations over the pond for a while, and in partnership with the Swift Group, they will be able to showcase these excellent high-end leisure vehicles to a receptive UK audience.

Caravan owners can look forward to an unmatched quality of fixtures and fittings within the Airstream range, with features such as leather upholstery, wrap-around panoramic front and rear windows, and ergonomically engineered mattresses with lightweight memory fibre technology. In the kitchen, there is no shortage of space, with a 110-litre fridge included on the Missouri with a 190-litre fridge installed in the Yukon and Colorado. Holidaymakers will benefit from a 35 litre on board fresh water tank, with a three burner cook top augmented by an oven and grill. When it comes to entertainment, a Bluetooth compatible Radio/CD/MP3 Player channels audio to an inbuilt sound system, while there are TV stations in both the bedroom and lounge.

UK specifications on the Airstream range are expected to be confirmed in due course, and pricing will start at £84,995 for the Airstream Yukon, up to £91,995 for the Airstream Colorado.

Mark Bebb, our Joint Managing Director here at Salop Leisure, said: “As a company with a heritage in caravans stretching back over 50 years, we see a great synergy between Salop Leisure and Airstream, a prestigious brand which has already won a place in the hearts of US caravan owners. Exciting times are ahead, as we welcome a new collection of world famous caravans into the Salop Leisure range. “

Bob Wheeler, President and CEO of Airstream, Inc, said: “Over the last decade, Airstream has developed a strong foundation in the UK and we believe Swift Group is the right partner to help us take it to the next level. There is tremendous potential for Airstream in the UK and we fully expect to see sales accelerate in the coming years.”

While James Turner, Managing Director of, Swift Group, commented:  “This is a fabulous new opportunity for Swift Group, with significant promise in an untapped market. I am delighted that Airstream has recognised the quality, passion and unrivalled capability that Swift possesses. I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
