I think it is completely fine to live in your Airstream with a newborn. People have lived happily and healthily in far smaller places.

As for the smog in L.A. etc.... Don't get sucked into the fear of our culture. As long as the baby has access to good medical and love you will be fine. Being happy and living life the way you would like to will bring so much to having a wonderful family. People thrive when they are happy and happy to you may be very different than to anyone else.

I have lived in other countries where the lives of my friends don't fall into the conformity of our culture. Many of them have children that are exceptional. Their lives are not lived "normally". Of course they did provide clean homes with good food, school and love. You'll be fine.

My husband and I live in Los Angeles and are planning to live in an Airstream full time. I am not having children but have four dogs and a bird. I am not concerned about it at all. Perhaps they aren't children it is true but I wouldn't find if odd at all.

All my best!

My family spent about 45 days in our 34' over the summer. My wife twin girls and myself. The girls were about 18 months old. We even stayed in the trailer at my parents' house in Idaho. Plenty of room in the house but preferred our space in the Airstream. We had just finished an update on the inside and we left the bed out of the rear, put the crib in for the girls, and we slept in the front on the fold down couch thing. We chose to do that because the girls would sleep from 10:30 p.m. to 10:30 a.m. and by having them in the back we did not alter their sleep and we could have coffee, shower and do stuff until they woke up. This was great for us, but also a 34'. I wouldn't say a smaller Airstream won't work, just not for me. I need space and the girls need more than me. We also had an outdoor screen room that they could play in and a plastic $5.00 kiddie pool to extend their play area. I can't wait for the temps to go up so we can get out of the house and camp some more. Cabin fever is setting in...

I just want to say thanks to everyone for such great info. This string is an OLDY but GOODY. I'm considering full-timing and starting a family around the same time. ANY information from real experiences is SO WONDERFUL to hear. What a caring community I'm finding RVer's to be! Love it

You will do fine. We had a 25' sailboat and the first night that we slept on it we had a 5 1/2 year old, a 4 year old, a 19 month child, and a 3 week infant. That year we slept on our sailboat more nights than any other time.

You adapt to make things work.

We would be parking in an RV park and staying put, in the Los Angeles area, while my husband works. I would be doing some work from home, over the computer. We also have two mid-size dogs who have been traveling with us all their lives. We are good at living with very little "stuff" and would welcome that. I am mainly wondering if anyone out there has lived with a baby in an Airstream, and has any advice they can share. Thanks so much! mvm
There is a blog out there of a couple who had a baby during their travels. I think it is something like Aluminum Adventures or something like that. From what I understand they had a pretty rough time of it in the beginning.

Babies do well in small spaces. We raised our son from 2months old on a 30' cowhorn schooner which has WAY less living space than a 30' airstream (but it sure had a big swimming pool)in the Virgin Islands! We finally went stateside and became landlubbers when he was 7 yrs old. It isn't for everyone, but we sure had fun.

How about this one?

We have been full timers in a 1983 31' Sovereign for over a year now, mostly staying put in a NJ campground. We have a 6 year old and I am expecting another baby.
My initial reaction is, "we need a new living situation" a house, an apartment, something! We love living in our Airstream. I would be very sad to give this up. I really don't know how everything could possible fit though. I don't need much baby gear or anything but still clothes and diapers alone, where would they go?
Has anyone ever lived in an airstream with 2 kids? How? We have the bed in the back and I fall asleep with my son there and move to the living room sofa bed when my husband come home.
Oh god I don;t want to move out of my Airstream!!
