Rooftop Trailer Park Experience
Seven Unique Designs
There’s nothing ordinary about a rooftop trailer park in the middle of the city, but 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 authentic Airstream trailers all have their own individual decor theme & collectively reflect a typically “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… they may even inspire you to go and visit these places for real!
Airstream trailers are incredible works of craftsmanship & their classic shape is unforgettably iconic. Each Airstream trailer features:
● A queen-size bed
● Wet room with a shower & WC
● Bar fridge

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.
Inspiration: To the east of Cape Town, in the shadow of mountains, lies a series of valleys known as the Cape Winelands. A collection of historic towns & Cape Dutch farmsteads that provide well-regarded South African wines to the world. These mountains create an incredible scenic backdrop for vineyards, but they are also one of the reasons wines do so well here. Their geological compositions provide unique soil conditions that directly affect the character of wine.
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.
Inspiration: Jaci’s Lodges in the Madikwe Game Reserve invites guests to safari in style. Jaci’s prides itself on its specialized safari experiences, South African inspired cuisine and outdoor starlit dining. Set in the famous Sabi Sand, Cheetah Plains offers guests unrivaled game viewing opportunities. The combination of its idyllic setting, comfortable bush-style accommodation and authentic South African home-style dining, keeps guests returning to this special bush lodge.
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.

Join the gold rush
Aptly named Gold Rush, this vintage trailer has been designed by Jacqui Hunter of Imagenius. It features elements that showcase our country’s rich and diverse culture and history.
Inspiration: Gold was discovered on a – as it was then known – Transvaal farm, in 1886 by two prospectors. This discovery caused a turning point in South African history. It is interesting to note that far more than diamonds, it changed South Africa from an agricultural society to become the largest gold producer in the world.
All the beauty of the Namaqualand’s floral kingdom, with none of the hayfever! Celebrate the West Coast’s wild, flowery cosmos in our Bloomin’ Daisies trailer.
Inspiration: At first glance Namaqualand appears to be a wilderness of semi-desert with dramatic mountains in the background. In the Spring it is suddenly transformed, into a pageant of flowers. The Namaqualand Flower Route lies 5 hours north of Cape Town, a series of drives that centre on the towns of Garies, Springbok, Kamieskroon and Port Nolloth, way up the N7.
This one is fly
City Flights is wallpapered with the owners’ personal aviation maps, showcasing their love for flying as well as celebrating the diversity of South Africa’s cities.

Get away from it all
The wide open spaces and iconic windmills that dot the landscape of the Karoo desert provided inspiration for this light, funky modern design that is the Karoo Dorps trailer – a perfect place to get away from it all.
Inspiration: The Great Karoo stands proudly with other desert tourism regions like the Australian Outback and Arizona and New Mexico in the United States, and makes for a memorable road-trip. You could travel for months in and about the towns of the Great Karoo and have a different experience in each one. The Karoo landscape, dotted with windmills, spans nearly 400 000km².
