Happy Days Retro Vacations glamping is In the beautiful setting of Saxmundham, close to Southwold and the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Our fabulous vintage Airstream caravans are the ultimate chrome from home. All of our Airstream Caravans are retro. They have been sympathetically updated to make them cosy and welcoming but also keeping as much of their original features as possible. The trailers are available to hire even outside of the summer season and are cosy inside. They are all well insulted inside. They are a lovely get away even when it’s rainy. You can cosy down inside with a book, a movie or a board game and listen to the pitter patter of rain on the roof.
The caravans are kitted out with
- kitchen equipment
- small tv’s for watching just DVD’s on (we will leave you a handful of DVDs to choose from but you may wish to bring some with you)
All of the trailers also have
- outdoor table and chairs
All caravans have a fire pit. You are welcome to bring your own wood or can buy it on site. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
All our ladies have toilet facilities onboard however, we would ask you to use the campsite facilities when possible. On occasion you may get caught short at night and need to use the toilet facilities and we fully understand this. The site also has showers.
PEGGY – Sleeps 5
Peggy is a lady to keep you guessing, she is a true mystery girl. We don’t know her exact origin but she’s a Tradewind and we know she was born in 1973. She’s a gorgeous tincan caravan.
- sofa that converts to a double bed at the front
- double bed in the middle with a small canvas bunk above (suitable for kids aged 6 upwards to small teens).
- plenty of wardrobe space,
- beautiful striped curtains and blue upholstery
ANNIE – Sleeps 4
Annie is a real head turner. She spent her time, before travelling the Atlantic, amidst the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. We like to think that John Denver may have even written a song for her! Annie is truly a beautiful mountain Mama!
- Sleeps 4 four berth
- In her front section she has a sofa that converts to a double bed and a double bed in her middle section.
- Plenty of storage
- Fabulous flamingo curtains with contrasting green gingham curtains that match with her green and grey checkerboard flooring
DEE DEE – Sleeps 4
Dee Dee is a very special old girl. Born in Ohio in 1959 she was the no. 173 Tradewind off the production line. She’s a Southern Belle who has spent her days in Myrtel Beach, South Carolina, looking across the Atlantic Ocean. She finally crossed the ocean in 2010 to spend her golden days in the tranquillity of sunny Dorset. Dee Dee is a vintage lady who exudes old style class.
Dee Dee has
- seating area that converts to a double at the front
- twin beds in the middle
- gingham curtains and lovely wood interior
BETSY – Sleeps 4
Betsy is a Tradewind Airstream who was born in 1972. She hails from Pennsylvania with its Great Lakes and the Appalachian Mountains.
She looks right at home though in the beautiful Dorset countryside. This vintage silver bullet is a true American Beauty.
- twin beds in the middle
- seating area that converts to a double at the front.
- sassy red upholstery and retro floral curtains
GLORIA – Sleeps 5
Gloria is a gorgeous 1961 Overlander. But for a lady in her fifties she certainly wears it well! As the Beach Boys said ‘We wish they all could be Californian girls’ and who are we to disagree. This west coast cutie all the way from the sunshine state is a real head turner. How can anyone resist this beach babe’s charms?
- sofa that makes a double bed at the front
- single bed in the middle
- bunk beds in the middle
- original fridge door in tact
- beautiful wooden interior and strawberry and gingham curtains
NETTIE (1972) – Sleeps 4
Nettie is an Avion trailer, similar to an Airstream but certainly more unusual. She is a classic American camper. Made by the Avion company based in Detroit Michigan, Nettie is a Motown Diva. She was born in 1972 and spent her time with various owners all in Connecticut, in striking distance of the bright lights of NYC.
Nettie is a four berth trailer, with a cosy dinette that makes a small double bed and twin beds in her middle section. With her 1970s inspired orange upholstery and flowery curtains this vintage trailer is a true soul sister!
ELSIE (The Caravan) – Sleeps 2
Elsie is a fabulous little Cheltenham Sable caravan, a British girl who more than holds her own next to her American Cousins. At just over thirteen feet long Elsie may be pint sized but this curvy classic is a cracking cosy caravan for couples.

- two doors and her beautiful pistachio and white exterior
- vintage floral curtains
- checkerboard floor
