Monica Church Buys an Airstream

Surfing the internet today something popped up on the computer screen as an item I may be interested in seeing. It was a link to a YouTube video and the subject was buying a vintage Airstream. Hmmm... sounds interesting so I watched the video, initially with a bit of interest, and then with amazement!

Monica Church is apparently a relatively well known (not to me) video blogger that had some time on her hands during this pandemic lockdown so she decided to buy a gutted Airstream and make it the home (on wheels) she always wanted(?)! After watching the video about the Airstream I realize Monica has several YouTube channels, millions of "views" and just a bit on the high energy side. Hmmm, we'll see how the Airstream reno proceeds. At a minimum, it's interesting to see how others come to find themselves owning an Airstream. For $15k - $20k, or maybe a bit less, Monica could have purchased a functioning trailer and glamped it up to the max with new colors, fabrics and a few tweaks here and there.


1) Reno completed in a matter of months and the trailer looks fabulous?

2) Reno falls by the wayside - way too much effort?

3) Other...

Here's a link to the YouTube video

I think that you will see a lot of her dad in future Reno vlogs.

Well, it looks like the door is on the wrong side of that Airstream.

Am I looking at the video correctly?

On edit:

Never mind, something just got turned around in the picture. As to your question, Lucius, I predict non-functional trailer at the end of this exercise. At least in the way we normal Airstreamers think of it.

Hopefully they read AIR forums and will ask for input.
