Has anyone tried "winter camping" in an airstream? We used to have a late model class B camper on a dodge sprinter van chassis and would occasionally sleep in it during the winter using the RV furnace, but with no running water, since it was winterized. It was like sleeping in your car but with a bigger heater!
Has anyone heard of living in an AS during a hard-freezing winter with snow and the whole 9 yards? Like a mobile home? We have land which we want to build on, but will do it in 2 stages, improving the the road access and bringing electric to the site, and digging the well and septic this summer, then building a cabin on it next summer. Is it even feasible to consider parking an AS on it as a weekend cabin through the winter if we have electric and water hook-ups? I imagine we'd have to keep it heated full time if we plan to use the plumbing at all, even if we are only inhabiting the trailer on the weekends.
I'm thinking of a 31' Sovereign
1977 for that purpose, it sure is cheaper than buying one of those neat little mini-houses (are they called "park trailers?" - they are like a hybrid between a trailer and a mobile home) that I've seen at the RV dealer.
Thanks for your comments, and I won't feel bad if you say I'm nuts.
