Rooftop Trailer Park Experience

Seven Unique Designs

There’s nothing ordinary about going all the way to the United States of America to source seven vintage Airstream trailers, and then hauling them back across the Atlantic and hoisting them onto the roof of an urban hotel. Then again, there’s nothing ordinary about the Grand Daddy.

Take the Daddy’s vintage elevator to our rooftop location in famous Long Street and soak in the alluring outline of Table Mountain as reflected in the polished aluminium of one of our seven trailers.

The seven recently renovated trailers, complete with US Postal Service mailboxes, all have their own individual decor and style, and collectively they reflect the “South African road trip”. Drawing inspiration from around Mzansi, our trailers give you a chance to experience different parts of our beautiful country, right here on the roof … and they may even inspire you to go and visit these places for real!

Yep, those unmistakably South African vistas have climbed right into the trailers. Each one is as unique as the South African landscape that it encapsulates and each has a story to share.

Airstream trailers are incredible works of craftsmanship and their classic shape is unforgettable. Each Airstream trailer has a queen-size bed, wet room with a shower, and modern comforts like TV, aircon and fridges. Our trailer suite called Winelands is the largest of the Airstream trailers and has an open-plan bedroom with a big lounge area.

The grape escape

As the largest of the Airstream trailers, this is the big daddy of the Grand Daddy’s rooftop trailer park. This Airstream trailer will have you feeling like tiptoeing through the vineyards – or at the very least, opening a bottle of bubbly and enjoying the comfort and quirkiness of our rooftop.

Rooftop Safari with Cheetah Plains & Jaci’s Lodges

Roaring with colour

A trailer that has captured the authentic African beauty of Jaci’s Lodges in the Madikwe Game Reserve and the Cheetah Plains Private Game Reserve at Sabi Sands. Jaci’s Lodges and Cheetah Plains offer differing, exceptional wildlife experiences, both capturing the unique wilderness that only Mother Africa can offer. Now a “rooftop safari”, complete with an outdoor shower, adds to your special South African adventure.

Beach House, Hermanus

To the beach

Beach House Interiors, synonymous with one of South Africa’s most-loved tourist destinations, has partnered with the Grand Daddy to transform one of the Airstream trailers into a seaside paradise. Enjoyed by foodies, fun-lovers, artists and surfers alike, the seaside village of Hermanus is a must-stop on a road trip along the N2 in the Western Cape.
