Otway Escapes is proud to announce the recent unveiling of its latest “Luxury Accommodation” for couples, located in Pennyroyal. Victoria.
The business recently purchased and refurbished a Gleaming Silver 27’ 1966 Airstream Land Yacht.
She was proudly christened “Love Is In The Airstream”
After many months of searching she was discovered in Port Macquarie in NSW. She was transported to Pennyroyal and underwent an extensive refurbishment that highlighted many of its original features and updated the interior to provide a luxurious and sumptuous interior.
Love is In The Airstream is an International Traveller she travelled the globe prior to being welcomed at Otway Escapes. She started life in California, visiting Canada, Japan, Cairns, Noosa, Port Macquarie, and then home to Pennyroyal.
Airstream is a global iconic brand, designed by Wally Byam. Below is a snippet of the history of the great man.
“In 1929, Wally Byam built the world’s first Airstream trailer. It started out as a tent contraption that he built on a Model T chassis, but it wasn’t a lot of fun in the rain (and Wally’s first wife Marion wasn’t a fan). So he replaced the tent with a teardrop-shaped permanent shelter – and added a stove and ice chest, too. It was easy to tow and caught the eye of other travellers, so much so that enough people asked Wally about it for him to decide it might be “a pretty good business to get into.” Good thing he did!”
Wally was a great man for quotes, several of our favourites are noted below.
