Gorilla expands mobile hire fleet

Gorilla Marketing and Events has added two new corporate hospitality assets to its hire fleet, a seven-metre event trailer and a classic Airstream motorhome.

Andy Butts, managing director, Gorilla, said: “We are aware that the sheer number of celebrations taking place in 2012 will stretch everyone’s event hire resources, so we have invested in two easy to deploy event assets, and they are already receiving quite a bit of interest.

“The classic aluminium Airstream motorhome is an iconic vehicle with its curves and polished metal exterior. The Airstream is currently undergoing the final touches following a full restoration and upgrade to make it a very desirable event vehicle. Now mechanically sound and running sweet, it has been completely rewired and had all of its internal woodwork replaced, and the all important stereo and sound systems are installed and pumping.”

The seven-metre trailer has sliding sides, and has swing round graphic panels fitted to its exterior and a full length, roof-mounted, lift up header display board. It has both a front staircase and wheel chair access, and is equipped with full sound and AV equipment, heating and aircon. Fully deployed it has a footprint of 11 metres by six metres and takes two hours to install.

“This summer promises to be very busy for those with event vehicles and trailers as venues become booked up and people turn to mobile solutions. We will be announcing further additions to our hire fleet as spring progresses,” concluded Butts.
