Gene is amazing. I purchased a used airstream only to find out that my Homeowners Association had changed the rules regarding maximum trailer length in the RV lot without posting the change! My trailer was 5 feet too long. Embarrassingly, I contacted Gene, and he worked with me to put the airstream back on the market. Just now Gene called me as he felt bad it had not sold, and said he would refund my money. Folks...this is old school values. Rare in these modern times. You can't go wrong with Gene and his lovely wife at VARR.

Review on VARR from Park City

I just wanted to let you guys know I made it back to Indiana today. The good news is that there were no more mishaps and the sides stayed riveted in place. Lol. Even in spite of 60mph cross winds crossing Wyoming.

Thanks again for a job well done. I will certainly write some good reviews and get them posted to the various forums. Gene, you may need a bigger place and hire more people to take on the additional workload.

Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year. All the best to you, the whole crew and your families. Maybe see you in the spring.

Review on VARR from Carmel, IN

Gene Varr owner is a great guy to do business with. He has a passion about retro airstream trailers that is palpable in every conversation I have had with him. He and his team do quality work. You will recognize him by his big black felt cowboy hat. Deeply etched face. Starched white shirt. Blue jeans and cowboy boots.

I frequently pass through Heber Utah on my travels with my 22 foot international ccd trailer and usually have something that needs tinkering or repair on my airstream. Gene is always so gracious to fit me into his already busy schedule of renovations and repairs.

Craig his main guy out in the shop is most helpful and easy to work with always taking time to listen to explanations of issues and offer suggestions for solutions. I have had one major body repair at their shop which came out looking good as new. Two other times I've driven into town with a problem and they have fit me in on the spot to help me out.

I like to stop by the yard and see all the cool old airstreams they have on their lot. Usually about thirty or more airstreams of various vintages. They have even done work on airstreams for some famous people I know. Movie stars. Rock stars. His operation is impressive.

Review on VARR from Waddell, AZ
This guy deserves 5+ stars in my book. Word of mouth referral from another Airstream owner earlier this year who couldn't say enough nice things. Gene has done repairs on my Airstream twice and he did so on both occasions with a huge degree of professionalism. The only downside to Gene has been booked up at times (for good reason). That being said, he came though for me several times, on time and got the jobs done on schedule. He happens to be a very nice guy as well.

We've had Gene work on our Airstream many times over the years and he's awesome! He knows his stuff and is meticulous about his work. We recently had new built-ins installed in our back bedroom and you would think they were factory original! I highly recommend VARR!!

Review on VARR from Charleston, UT
I went to VARR for some help on an electronic device that was not working in my RV. I worked with Craig who is their parts specialist. My RV is 13 years old and sometimes those parts are either impossible to find, or don’t exist at all. Craig would text me nearly everyday to tell me of his progress. I know he spent time and effort searching for the parts, for several weeks. Thanks Craig, I appreciate your hard work. Thanks VARR, you guys are great.!

Review on VARR from West Jordan, UT
Extremely friendly couple running a "mom and pop" operation in the middle of beautiful Heber City. When I left Salt Lake one day and happen to drive by their place, I just had to stop and see what they were up to. These guys are the real deal and I was blown away by what they were working on in the “boneyard.” I have yet to purchase an Airstream from them, but I really looking forward to the time I can!

We have taken our 1982 Airstream Turbo Diesel Motorhome to VARR with a couple of issues… They worked their magic and we have a much nicer Motorhome as a result. Gene, Craig and their team know what they’re doing with Vintage Airstream tow behinds or Motorhomes. We couldn’t be happier with their service.

Review on VARR from Sandy, UT
Gene was very personable and extremely knowledge about Airstreams. He understood what I really needed, even if I wasn’t sure what questions to ask. After going on the website, viewing what VARR has created over the years and seeing at what they were currently working on in their shop, I am very excited to have them create a unique Southwest styled 60’s era Airstream for me to explore my home in and around the Four Corners.

Review on VARR from Salt Lake City, UT

Last year my wife and I bought a classic 1975 Sovereign Airstream. At a glance it was beautiful, so we bought it "as is" from Michigan, over 2,000 miles away, without an inspection.

Removing the vintage shag rug to do a simple carpet replacement, we discovered that the wood floor and the overhead sleeping area were rotten with mold and wood decay from years of hidden water leaks. We soon had a long list of problems with plumbing, electricity, woodwork, appliances, cabinets, etc. realizing we were in way over our head.

I checked out Vintage Airstream Restoration and Repair and liked the owner and the crew. They obviously love the restoration of classic trailers and do excellent work. They had dozens of vintage Airstreams trailers of all kinds on the lot, for sale, being restored or in line for restoration. I waited eight weeks for a slot.

Their prices are fair and the quality of work is superb. From custom cabinetry to ingenious electrical upgrades, you couldn't ask for more. Thanks to VARR, we now have a beautiful wood interior, warm low-amp LED lighting, upgraded heater, modern upgraded converter and inverter, re-worked plumbing, new rooftop sealant, a first-rate battery bank, and high-output solar panels. They flood-tested the clear, gray, and black water tanks, and pressure tested the entire RV for leaks. The floor is actually stronger and better than new, with new frame welding and foam insulation sandwiched between marine plywood--no squeaks, no spongy spots, and finished with understated Marmoleum.

4 months later, Vintage Airstream Restoration and Repair saved our vintage RV from the junk heap and kept a beautifully restored work of art on the road.

Review on VARR from Draper, UT
I purchased my dream trailer, a 31' 1974 Excella, from Gene at Vintage Airtream Restoration and Repair. Little did I know, the experience was to become so much more that just a sale transaction. I got to know both Gene and Jacqueline. Their attention and care for the restoration process of these beautiful aluminum gems are a labor of love. Gene's eye for detail is apparent in every project he takes on. Now when I think of an Airstream, I think of Vintage Airtream Restoration and Repair. Absolutely recommend VARR!

After speaking to Gene over the phone, we resided to bring our Airstream to Varr. The knowledge and time he spent, explaining the process was very impressive. These guys did an amazing job polishing and remodeling my 1959 Airstream Caravanner. Gene and his staff are great, highly recommended Vintage Airstream Restoration and Repair!

Review on VARR from Gruver, TX

We heard of Vintage Airstream Restoration and Repair through their multiple glowing internet reviews and testimonials on forums, yelp, youtube, etc...so my expectations were high. Well, Gene at Varr lives up to his great reputation! He provided exceptional service while sealing roof and Window leaks and repairing the water damaged sub-floor of my 1975 Sovereign Airstream.

There quotes for repairs were complete, fair and transparent. Gene provided continuous updates on the status of repairs and the timeline. He was patient, courteous and most of all his technical skills are second to none.

We're now enjoying our newly-repaired Sovereign and I'm grateful to have met Gene. He'll definitely be my first call the next time I need any work done or just need some good Airstream-related advice from a real expert.

Review on VARR from Studio City, CA
I'm a newbie to the Airstream world going on 2 years now, had lots of issues with my 1963 Tradewind Airstream. Gene was recommended by several of my neighbors after he flawlessly repaired several issues on both their Airstreams. He was the first to diagnose and resolve a leak that others were unable to find, and which caused floor damage to approximately 1/4 of my RV. My experience of his way of doing business is this: honest, expert knowledge and willing to share, accurate appraisals and excellent craftsmanship that don't cut corners or break your bank. This guy loves working on Airstreams and knows them well. Gene is very professional and down-home honest...did I say honest??? In the RV world thats priceless. Vintage Airstream Restoration and Repair deserves 10 stars. A great experience.

In these times of high pressured, impersonal commercial interactions, it's refreshing to discover Gene and his Airstream business. Gene is easy to be around and is obviously passionate about Airstream trailers. If you need help with anything to do with Airstreams, Gene is The Man!

Full restoration on my 1963 Globetrotter Airstream! Unbelievable service. Kept me informed all the way. Did what they said they would do and then some. I would not hesitate to refer Vintage Airstream Restoration and Repair or use them again. They redefine customer service and American craftsmanship. Thanks again Gene and staff.

Review on VARR from Heber City
I am so thrilled with the restoration done on my little Alumination. I grew up camping in this trailer when it belonged to my grandparents back in the 70's, and I have always just loved it. Gene did such an amazing job, restoring it from the ground up. It's cozy and beautiful, and wherever I go camping in it, people stop to say hi and tell me how lovely it is. Thanks, Gene and Jacqueline for everything!
