After spending a good while considering tiny homes, and deciding against due to the regulatory mess they currently are, our sights have shifted to an old Airstream for full time stationary living for a year or two, possibly on land to be purchased, before hitting the road.
The tow vehicle limits us, as it can only pull about 6,500 lbs., but looking at the spreadsheet Iíve made up of models and weights, there are a ton of Airstream options from the 60s and 70s well below that weight, and fortunately I love
the look of old Airstreams and am not afraid to get my hands dirty doing some restoration and renovation.
That said, other than living comfortably together in small spaces, this is all
new to us. So I just need to learn about city and county zoning, RV financing, 12V
electrical systems, RV plumbing and water, solar systems, insurance, financing land, wells, septic, how to buy a vintage trailer without getting burned, maintenance and repair, how to tow, and everything I donít even know yet that I donít know
