Many choices. If I were in your situation I would either:

1) make a trip out of it and take it out for a night or two

-or-

2) find more suitable storage.

In Atlanta, there are no restrictions on street parking most everywhere (even overnighting/boondocking) but downtown as long as you are legally parked and registered. this assumes you are under 6000lb trailer. over that you can only do it during the daytime.

im new too, and just picked up a 22ft '58 and almost ready to hit the roads around town with it. right now i have only solar and no inverter so i steal power from the office as i work on it on the curb for power tools or do battery tools.

The next best thing besides owning a house on a long driveway so you could tinker with your AS is to get a new best friend with the same. That being said, so long as you are not making a lot of noise and or dust , you should be able to go into a state, county or city park as a day visitor and hang out and do most of everything you want. If any of your projects are disturbing then you might check with the storage area to see if you are restricted in the things that you could do there. Good luck tinkering!

I think this is likely my best option. We have some good local parks, which I wish would allow overnight. That said, I think I would be very happy towing it to a lakeside parking lot and tinkering around.

I think this is a bit akin to pitching a tent in the backyard and spending the night there when you're a kid.

I don't care what anyone else thinks - I simply enjoying spending time/around the Airstream, and I hope it never wears off

Have a really good friend living where along side garage parking is allowed?

Rent a garage that has power metered or unmetered. Maybe extra $ above current spot.

Would need a generator - see possibilities below (overnight) Then schmooze a manager for repeated visits
Casinos
Truck stops
overnightrvparking.com
boondockerswelcome.com = on private land
Harvest Hosts = might have to buy a lot of wine
Google in: WALMART LOCATIONS STORE DETAILS & PARKING- Allstays
click on California then view all stores on map then + to Long Beach
NOT: did not download the app but clicking on red "w" is a "no" when it works
yellow "w" is a conditional "yes" when it works
Some cities allow overnight to get $ for their businesses. I could not find a list but
perhaps the RV Campgrounds books table of contents might have " small towns
offering free overnight camping" Repeated stays might mean a donation to their
fire department. I found many,some with free power and dumping. None around
Long Beach ( but my search was rudimentary )
In low cost of living NEBRASKA, $110/ mo can rent a campsite on a small/large lake
and you pay per kilowatt for power. Some have water. None with dump stations.
You might not get much work done 'cause some are real"party animal" spots.
Probably not an option in "everything way too expensive CALIFORNIA"

You ought to sell, or better yet destroy your Airstream in the name of humanity.

The day I brought my Airstream home, I knew I needed to find a place to put it but had nothing arranged. Looked up local storage facilities, but also decided to take a look at Craigslist. Found a private property less than 15 minutes from home. The guy has a big property and allows a handful of RVs to park. I pay him cash and it's cheaper than any other storage option - I can also come and go as I please. His shop is close by and he welcomes me to the use of his tools, although I bring my own. Always helpful when I forget something though, which happens a lot. Told him I'd like to do a shell off restoration and offered to pay double for the trouble and occasional use of the empty space next to the Airstream. He said it was no bother and wouldn't take more money. There's even a dump trailer to throw trash in, which he takes to empty every few weeks so that's just about the most convenient setup immaginable. But I've gained the friendship simply by reaching out, and yes I do slip him some extra cash insistently encouraging him to take it and thanking him for his kindness.

LBOskiBEAR,I too store at ASOC. Just let Danny or Oscar know you are there. Watch your time so you don't get locked in and park your vehicle out of the way. Great team there. I find they will do anything for you.
