Since you'll have a road worthy Airstream after you do this project, why not consider buying wrecks? Salvage title, that can't be used on the road again.

Unfortunately there are always a few that get the rear end or front crushed by a tree. Insurance companies sell them cheap. Colaw's Salvage is where many end up... but to save $$$ you want to get them from the insurance auction.

It wouldn't be the same as one that had been cut in two but most people would never notice. There was a thread long ago about a man who had just finished refurbing his Airstream and was rear-ended, totalling it. He did something very similar to what you're contemplating - chopped off the rear curved segments and made a little porch, then installed it as a garden gazebo.

Go to the Google search and explore!

Last suggestion tinyhouses.com Not Airstreams, but Henry David Thoreau would approve.

Well Paula, i just emailed Colaw! Great idea. I would have done that first, but the process here began the opposite way. We're at the foot of Baja where there are not many Airstreams. Then someone put one up for sale. Down the Street. 34 feet. Good price. I lept! But it's too big for our space. Now of course, I'm looking for other places to put it, still planning for the project I've described here but thinking more loosely about where the Airstream halves are going to come from.

I have a looooooong love of tiny, but mostly handmade houses. You're speakin' my language. Henry David Thoreau also famously said "Simplify, simplify, simplify." I can't say I hew all that closely to that guide, but that didn't stop me from putting that bumper sticker right on top of my desk.

Good question! Maybe it would shift to a cereal number?
