A new RVing experience awaits here with the opening of the SB Auto Camp in Santa Barbara, Calif., where visitors stay in smartly renovated Airstream trailers.
According to RV News Service, for the past month, neighbors have been admiring the relandscaped park entrance that features four vintage Airstreams. The SB Auto Camp is part of an existing RV park that houses 30 other trailers from varying manufacturers. Several dozen local residents live full-time at the park.
The SB Auto Camp is a 15-minute walk from the historic Santa Barbara Mission, and a short bike ride southeast of Santa Barbara’s bustling downtown shopping district. Major shopping centers are within a half mile, and quaint local shops, services and eateries are next door and across the street.
The Airstreams were hand-renovated by local architect Matthew Hofmann’s custom renovation firm HofArc. “Each Airstream has been uniquely designed to connect yesterday with today without giving up modern comforts,” said Hofmann.
Each trailer comfortably sleeps four and features all new, all electric appliances, home-style fixtures and creature comforts found in luxury lodging. Each one also comes with its own outdoor barbecue grill and complimentary use of two retro-styled Huffy beach cruiser bicycles and riding helmets.
Nightly rates are $118 during a grand opening special at SBAutoCamp.com.
