Airstream Facilities - custom fitted
production trailers and luxury accommodation units
Digger talks to Mojo Fell at Airstream
Facilities about his business which now boasts over fifteen
renovated iconic Airstream Trailer/Caravans in its fleet.
Digger: What is your background
and can you please tell us how Airstream Facilities started
and how the company has evolved into what it is today?
Mojo: Iíve worked in the events
and entertainment industry all my life. During my early years
I was a performer and events manager for pyrotechnics
performance group, Turbo Unit. We spent a lot of the year
touring and I was always on the look out for functional and
comfortable accommodation options. I fell in love with
Airstreams the first time I saw one. The airplane like
exteriors and retro chic shells caught my eye and I was struck
by the spacious interiors. Airstream quickly became my main
business and passion. Over the past fifteen years I have
imported and refurbished and converted numerous Airstreams.
Digger: Please tell us more
about the Airstreams and other products and services on
Mojo: Most of my units get a
full makeover and refurbishment before we offer them for hire.
I focus on accentuating the natural retro appeal of the
trailers while adding a luxurious twist. We currently have a
large fleet of Airstreams available for short or long term
hire. The majority are used for accommodation but we also
offer mobile production offices, bars and box office type
Digger: What are your retro
Mojo: I love the retro look,
from iconic illustrations to funky furniture, but my main
passion is Airstreams.
Digger: Why is vintage, retro
and nostalgia such a big thing in so many people's lives and
why are these Airstreams so evocative of decades past?
Mojo: It certainly seems that
we are in the midst of a retro revolution. From fashion to
food, vintage is in. And so it should be! The retro look adds
a bit of glamour and style to the stark, minimalist look of
the 21st century. The airstreams are everything retro should
be: Classic, striking and different for all the right
Digger: What advice would you
give to somebody planning to hire an Airstream from you in
terms of research, planning and preparation?
Mojo: Think about the purpose
of the hire and what you require with regards to facilities,
then give us a call so we can discuss the best option for you.
Due to legal reasons we do not offer self-drive, but we can
drop off and collect a unit to pretty much anywhere in Europe.
Digger: Where are your
customers coming from and what customer feedback/comments do
Mojo: Airstreams are regularly
hired for boutique camping areas at festivals, as well as
accommodation for weddings and other home events. We also hire
to production companies and TV sets. With regards to who and
what for, the options are limitless. People are always amazed
at how comfortable and luxurious the units are. Airstreams
take camping to a whole new level.
Digger: What impact has The
Internet had on your business?
Mojo: Initial contact is often
via the website but once people have hired from us they
keep coming back. The Internet has been excellent with regards
to making our name known.
Digger: What are the best and
most enjoyable aspects of running Airstream Facilities?
Mojo: Running a business such
as Airstream Facilities means I meet a lot of interesting
characters from all walks of life. I can also take great pride
in my work as I know Iím offering a great product and service
but the best bit has to be getting to spend much of the year
on the road in an Airstream.
Digger: What are your plans for
Airstream Facilities in the future?
Mojo: I am constantly
increasing my fleet and pride myself on having the most
comprehensive range of hire units in Europe. Going forwards,
the company will continue to expand as our customer base
