    Giddyup. That is a very good choice for two compact people or certainly one person. Great layout too.

    What questions do you have about Airstream in particular? That might help drive your decision more than anything.

    Question for Josh. We're getting closer to snow birding and thinking about RVs. I like Airstream because of my submariner background. I know it would work for me. My wife is 6'3" and I have concerns about her whacking her head all the time. I know you're taller than that, how does it work for you?

    The interior ceiling height of all modern Airstreams, with ducted AC, is 6'7" I'm fine in bare feet.

    The only place your wife will have any issues is in the shower. She won't hit her head, but it is a tight fit. FWIW, I'm 6'2" and have no problems with hitting my head.

    I should have made it more clear, the one thats in our price range looks nothing like the one above, haha. But, we bought it, needs quite a bit of work, but I'll post a few reno things here. Hoping to make this mostly kitted out for weekend trips tor races and rides, where we wouldn't ever plug in or anything. Just gonna set it up to have interior lights that plug into a power bank, and a cooler instead of a fridge. We already have a few thetford toilets.

    Pretty neat we can pull it very easily with the outback, and move it around but hand.

    despite many demands we do not paint it, we will be doing so, ha.

    That looks like a lot of fun.

    I've been thinking about a tiny trailer to park on the property somewhere as a writing office, but 1.) kinda dumb to use a trailer when I could just build a wood-framed cubicle and 2.) mice love trailers parked in the woods.

    At 6'7" I have a comment on that shower. The now unubtanium "26U' has an unusually tall shower which I can stand in. I've got to duck a wee bit and it's fine. Our prior FC 25' shower had a nickname "chamber of humiliation" seriously I had to sit sideways. Feh.

    We built a treehouse, not sure if I posted on here about it at all. Was a very fun project. Basically built everything to solid standards as far as sealing it, air gaps, vapor barriers etc. Good experience, probably a bit overboard. Next we want to so something with exposed wood frame and custom built windows (by us), give us a bit more creative freedom. Probably very little or no insulation, and maybe just another wood stove for shoulder season use. We want to do a bit more experimenting in transparency, and push ourselves a bit.









    We have it on airbnb when we're not using it for guests.

    That's awesome - what is the water source for the shower?
