Old Mac Daddy
Grabouw, Western Cape
The last trailer I stayed in was in Greenville, South Carolina. My ex-wife and I were desperate to move out of a friend’s house where we’d apparently exceeded our ‘Stay as long as you like’ invitation. And the 60-foot long, 30-foot wide trailer we found, one of only six in a pine forest on the edge of a lake, made us feel anything but trailer trash. So when I arrived at Old Mac Daddy’s luxury trailer park in Grabouw, also in a pine forest on the edge of a dam, I thought I knew what to expect. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Not only is the level of luxury pretty much five-star in these air-conditioned Airstream trailers, their individually themed decor had me gasping in wonderment. Meals are served at the good on-site restaurant and, while I chose to soak up the views and frog choruses from my deck, there’s more than enough to do for those with ants in their pants.
