Aspiring Airstreamer in Austin
I'm am aspiring Airstreamer who has been lurking in the forums for a while and have read Tim Shephard's book "Restoring a Dream." I'm trying to devise a plan for my future Airstream to pay for itself (or at least offset some costs) by renting it through AirBnb.
Before I start looking at A/S in person, we have to move some dirt over a ditch and open up our fence so that we can bring the trailer onto an empty lot we own outside of Austin. That, and find the best home equity loan!
Because one A/S is just not ambitious enough, I am also thinking of getting a stripped-out trailer to use as a backyard studio for myself and my husband, with electric but no plumbing. I posted in the Dollars and Cents / Buyer's Guide subforum about a gutted A/S I'm looking at, wondering if it is too far gone to consider. Not sure I put it in the best subforum, but I'd appreciate your thoughts!
Third, has anyone been to the spring Hill Country rally in Johnson City (in April)? I should go check that out but wasn't sure whether it was a rally for vintage, late model, or both. And do rallies even welcome wannabes like me? 😂
I have already learned so much from these forums, and look forward to being a part of the community.
