I've been obsessed with getting a trailer/RV for the last 2 months. We started with looking at something small like the teardrops.....then we walked into the fancy ones that rock stars use on tour and were blown away.....in the end we leaned toward the airstream. Living in my neighborhood had a huge influence on our choice. There are a few airstreams in the neighborhood that have gotten a lot of attention. They are used as additional living space. I know it sounds odd if you live in a big house in Texas or any state outside of California. But in my neighborhood where there are cottages, these airstreams are quite desirable. We are the first on our street, but already there are 3 other families who plan to get one.
I feel obligated to explain myself because if Mom and Dad heard that we bought an RV and saw that we bought a 1967 model....they would probably think we are "poor". I know Mom - it is bewildering to her that I would buy anything that "old" when it comes to real estate. She won't get it, but I hope you do!
It is a 1967 model and has 90% of the originals intact. If you know us, we are the remodeling kind. I am not interested in restoring it to keep its value. I want to remodel it and make it modern inside! The only thing we will keep is the original stovetop/oven which is impeccably clean and quaint. Unfortunately, Adrian is ridiculously busy these days so the remodeling job will be slower than I'd like.
So, here are the "ugly" before pictures (currently parked at my neighbor's):

Here are a few in the hood that sparked our interest:

Here is our inspiration design. We're going for this look. We keep going back to it. I like the clean neutral colors in a small space.....I know...a lot of work ahead of us.
We are going to park in our front yard by the gardens....future house guests can choose to stay in the treehouse or the airstream! Please come visit us!!!
