Perched atop Cape Town’s swanky Grand Daddy hotel, you can stay in a souped-up, USA-style vintage trailer park. Don’t think trailer trash, though – this is penthouse of all caravan parking lots. Local designers were brought in to reinvent the interiors of seven 1930s Airstream trailers, creating the chic aesthetic you see today.
Each of the over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek motor homes has its own theme – think Karoo, Safari and Surfing – and they’re spick and span following refurbishment. Big screen TVs, air-conditioning, ensuites and massage services give guests a taste of the real American dream.
All major South African airlines fly direct to Cape Town.
Trailer suites start from US$203 per night for two people during low season, and from US$275 during high season.
