Valerie, this could be a good solution, but as a fellow midwesterner, I know that our winters can be fierce at times. I'm assuming your school year of full time living in the trailer would include the winter months. You might want to do a search (see the menu bar above) for winter living in an Airstream in cold weather areas. One in particular by Ruby Slippers chronicles a winter experience in mid Missouri. You can probably do it, but you'll need to make some special provisions. Unlike mobile homes, our Airstreams are not built or insulated for the most part for cold weather. For sure, you'll run into water issues, condensation, adequate propane storage, and so on. I don't know if you had considered this aspect, so, my post is just for your thought. Best wishes, G
