Airstream to House Boat Conversions

Hi,

Has anyone come across a House boat that was created from a Airstream?
It seems like an easy enough conversion and is well suited for an old 30 foot airstream with a rotten frame/floor/axle gone....you know ones.

The beauty of the house boat idea is that all the things that would make a trailer restoration too costly to pursue are not a factor in setting up the house boat. The shell could be fastened directly to the existing Plywood decking of the pontoon boat.

If anyone has tried this or have seen one - I'd like to see pictures.

Oh they're out there all right. It's a pretty simple adaptation, as you guessed. Usually it's a weekend project conceived on Friday night and done by noon on Sunday.

I've never seen one that wouldn't have been better off left on dry land.
