In the March 2010 issue of Outside Magazine they posted a "Spring Break" getaways article with one of the features recommending a stay at Grand Daddy Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. It seems they are getting ready for the World Cup Soccer Tournament this summer and dropped 7 restored Airstreams on the roof. Looks like they threw some serious money at these, assigning various creative types to make the interiors over, tying in to various themes. See Text below and then go to The Grand Daddy
and then to Airstream Penthouses. With maybe one exception, they are all "over the top". Not sure I would want to hang out in some of them. Interesting concept. The "Pleasantville" is kinda cool.
A gleaming fleet of seven iconic American Airstream trailers have packed up their corndogs and tucked away their picnic blankets to roost on the rooftop of The Grand Daddy Hotel. Here, the quintessential African skies and the alluring outline of Cape Town’s Table Mountain are reflected in the polished aluminium of the American Dream.
Peek inside – there’s more! Each of the seven trailers has been handed over to some incredibly creative Capetonian soul to find new life through playful, eccentric and dazzling décor interpretations of how life in an Airstream can be.
Your Airstream is enclosed by a tidy garden complete with US Postal Service mailboxes. Watch an outdoor movie on hot summer nights at The Pink Flamingo Cinema and find an excuse to make this the destination for your next gathering of family and friends.
All the Airstreams are air-conditioned, incredibly well-insulated, have hot and cold running water, flushing toilets and showers. For those who want to pimp their park life and flash their trailer trash – or for those who simply want to experience the world’s only trailer park penthouse suite - just take the vintage elevator to the third floor, take the rooftop exit and enter the adventure.
