MORE than 60 Airstreamers from all over the UK turned heads when they convened at Holgates Caravan Park, Silverdale, for an owners’ rally.

And this week Tebay-based Airstream & Company announced development plans that include appointing extra sales staff and a new manager who lives in one of the aluminium travel trailers full time.

The firm, which launched the European version of the award-winning travel trailer in 2006, said increasing demand for the aluminium icons in Britain had prompted the team to take on Dave Hughes, Appleby, and Christian Rengers, Kendal, as sales associates.
