New Member--Airstream as vacation home?
I have been reading the postings on this forum and they are really interesting and informative. I have been interested in Airstreams since I was small but only this year have I really considered getting one. My in-laws have a property and have been asking us to build on it for a long time. We have no interest in living there full time but would like to use it as a vacation place for every other weekend or so in the spring, summer, and fall. It is a wooded property with some large open grassy areas. I liked the idea of a trailer as I am not sure we will stay in the area forever and if we build a house we would have to sell it with the land. If we have a trailer we can sell the trailer and keep the land relatively unscathed.
I was wondering if anyone has done this, using a airstream as a vacation home. If so, did you lay a slab to support it and take it off the wheels? Is there a way to hook them up to more permanent sewer and water lines? I read that some recommend building a shelter to protect it. If someone has done this can you post a photo of it?
