Out of the Park Airstream Client

Out of the Park Airstream Client


Recently we were contacted by one of the world’s most well known Hollywood actors….

The contact was a “SOS” to take over the responsibility to complete a very difficult Airstream restoration project that was started months before, by another company.

Because of the structural and incomplete designing, the project was stopped and turned over to VARR, Inc (Vintage Airstream Restorations & Repairs) located next to Park City, Utah

It sure looked easy in the beginning but all indications told us that the complicated task and budget was way, way too extensive.

VARR, Inc. took over the responsibility to complete the reconstruction process and is approaching the finish line for the owners.

Check out our photos before and during the project.


So many companies that claim to be specialist are “week-end” fix-it shops.  With a grandpa helping his grandson attempt to re-wire the complex electrical responsibility. As one knows, the taking over of an incomplete building project can be a nightmare for any seasoned tradesman.


For us at VARR, Inc., all corrections (both inside and out) have been brought up to and beyond “code” requirements.

To avoid similar nightmares, and potential liabilities, be sure to do your due-diligence and or ask a specialist….. If you can locate one!!

Airstream Unknowns

So Many Unknowns…..


With the travel trailer niche so explosive today regarding choices, costs, interiors and true valve (especially those built before 1970) how can an enthusiastic “owner to be” not be overwhelmed with all the choices and of course, all the materials needed to resurrect a 50 year old Airstream.


Stories and red flags cannot be understood by the inexperienced do it yourselfers. Hundreds and hundreds of questions come to my telephone line weekly since it doesn’t take much to intimidate the modern cabinet maker since a 2×4 is not in any way, linked to an aluminum rivet.


It has become so difficult to accommodate all inquiries, questions and frustrations that I have had to limit each incoming call to five (5) minutes.


Once the caller or curious owner gets his or her questions answered, another one pops right up behind the last.

I suggest reading as much detailed information and watching as many videos to make the buyer more comfortable before jumping into the deep end of the tool box!


E-mail can help a little but the spoken work is easier and more powerful to the caller.

A lot can be clarified in minutes compared to 11 paragraphs on rotten floors of a e-mailed question.

Feel free to become my best friend and take advantage of our generosity and experience for “real answers”


Tailoring your “Travel Trailer”


Locating a professional upholster for cushions, pillows, rips and curtains for your travel trailer has become, at times, a nightmare!!

The words “custom cushions” is almost impossible to plan for in your trailer since the worn-out fabrics are outdated and difficult to locate, measure and design.

Additionally most fabrics are running over the top for the per-yard cost.

$80.00 per yard for these covers is becoming commonplace. Out of necessity, we therefore assemble our own needle shop for “trailer travelers” only!

We can pass fabric and labor saving on to the trailer owner

Call Gene at 435-654-5465                                                                                                                                                              




What could be more inviting than a comfortable chair, seat, or pillow inside your custom Airstream travel trailer?

How about a row of kick-ass bar-stools lined up with your “fabric logo” advertising your unique brand.

Airstream gathers the curiosity; your business rings the cash register!! How do I know, we create unique upholstery items for corporations to Hollywood stars.

We give each client ideas, samples, design and more ideas from curtains to exotic leather. We repair worn out cushions and help coordinate family themes such as sailing, cowboys, and sports…..

First word when they walk into your unique Airstream trailer will be …..WOW!!!

Give us a call at 435-654-5465 and remember spring is around the corner. Make your sit-down personal appointment today.



No different than taking off or unbuttoning your shirt. Spring is the time to prepare you for warmer, bright sunshine and the urge to travel.

As a cautionary note, do not just hook her up and take to the Rockies – one must methodically reverse the “winterizing” process and prepare everything from the windows to the propane lines.

Remember, the winter months and the wild swings in temperatures can slow down if not eliminate the spring thaw.

That thaw will shorten, if not end your first venture of the season and probably last well into your third trip if you “rush” the spring preparation clean-up and clean out!

All the mechanical components must be started and monitored for at least ten (10) minutes each.

A lot can happen or not happen in 10 bad minutes on the road.

Putting off and coughing up the repair money is not easy but safety on the road should have no limits.

No different from a child’s first seasonal ski run (downhill fast), all gear and all protection should be double checked.


Do not let the kick-off of the annual event end the fun and safety of the great outdoors and asphalt!!

VIN Numbers

VIN Numbers


Vehicle Identification Numbers for Vintage Airstream trailers are extremely important since without them no buyer would every know if the trailer you are looking to purchase is stolen (or has been stolen) VIN numbers on Vintage Airstream trailers are located usually on the right side of each door on a identification plaque. Numbers are usually engraved into the metal.


A few older trailers have the identification number tagged on the hitch or tongue for easy viewing.

Make sure that each VIN number matches the title number for an accurate title registration.
