I've been lurking for a few weeks but I guess I can't stay silent for much longer...
We've just bought an Airstream.
We are in Australia and have been on the lookout for a short while now. we are moving to a rural property with a tiny house on it. My partner and I run a business from home (she's a film editor and I'm a designer) and there just isn't room for an office / studio in the house. Hence the Airstream. We plan to fit it out as a studio plus guest accommodation. : )
We just purchased a '74 Tradewind from Sagel Idaho. Really lovely sellers up there who have been so helpful. They have had to receive a shipment from Tom at Perfect Polish and cut keys and post them. Tomorrow the overland transport arrives to pick it up and they need to be there for that. Really helpful folks. They have even packed some kind of care package of local (not-perishable and non-customs concerning) goodies inside for us. American hospitality is second to none!
There are many dramas ahead including reversing this thing down a narrow and very tight winding dirt driveway onto our place. So, I'm gonna be asking your advice sooner or later.
I've started a blog to help other Aussies who might be thinking of doing a similar thing. If there are any out there, get in touch.

Here are some pics to get things moving...
Thanks in advance for all the support.
PS I am aware of the patched panel. Considering it a beauty spot : )
