Ok, so it isn't exactly "On the Road"; but the experience is the same.
While building on our land here in southwest Mo., I have been living in our '85 Sovereign
25'. No utilities, no sewer. So not only is this my longest extended period in the Airstream, it is my first try at boonedocking.
Here are some observations, most of which would be applicable to a new Classic 25', as the floorplan and size is largely unchanged:
The large, top hinged windows provide marvelous cross ventilation. Without those and the Fantastic Fan I could not have made it through a few incredibly humid, hot nights.
It continues to amaze me how livable the space is. Living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom. Ok, so bathROOM is stretching it. Bath closet, maybe. Even so, it works quite well; especially the shower. I am about ready to take out the headache inducing, largely useless overhead cabinet, though. I note it is no longer used in the newest coaches. I do like the window, though, which is no longer available.
Storage space is beyond belief. And everything is easily to hand. The roll out pantry is a real convenience for full time living.
Those gas refrigerators don't use much gas, do they? Amazing.
Cell phone reception inside is terrific, which surprises me.
I can heat water just once a day, shut off the heater, shower (two showers when my wife stays over), and still have hot water to do the day's dishes.
RidX works great in the black tank. No odors at all, and the tank has been filling for 10 days.
If I can't cook it on the grill or over the gas cooktop on my cast iron pan, I don't need to eat it. NOTE: I have seriously modified my galley area which, in my opinion is about useless in stock configuration. See my photos.
The generator will keep the batteries charged on about 90 minutes a day runtime.
While not a place to ride out a major storm, the Airstream seems exceptionally stable in our summer thunderstorms. I am guessing the same aerodynamics which aid us on the road work in our favor during windy conditions as well.
Problems: Very few. I could use a vestibule in some form as I am parked on a forest floor and tracking-in is a nuisance. And I need several pairs of shoes and boots, all of which tend to be dirty. Where do you put them?
Final observation: In the summer in Missouri, shade is your friend.
