    I noticed you have a Tundra, enough truck to yank that thing around? And how was the backing up? Looks pretty straight. And what is the GVW of that Airstream?

    Tundra is fine towing capacity, payload is definitely at the limit.

    Truck will tow 10,000 lbs, Airstream is 7,000 GVW.

    The biggest limiting factor is payload.

    Pete, it looks to me like you also have enough room for one of these somewhere on your lot:

    There are a bunch of reasons to build an Airstream Barn-do-minium.

    I'm thinking a Jorn/Pete partnership in an Airbnb venture using Pete's Airstream and Jorn's woods...Mike has some time to manage the project.

    I think an Airstream would turn into Mousedale pretty quickly out in the back 40.

    I have thought about a quonset hut though. You know, something simple.



    But I understand they can be like Doritos, and I wouldn't want to clutter up the place.

    Lots of quonset dwellers in NW Arizona. Some even have indoor plumbing. The rattlesnakes keep the rodent population in check. The Chaparral Birds keep the rattlesnake population under control, mostly.

    Betting the neighbors, especially the house just to the left of the "huts", are less than overjoyed with this project, might be ok in some settings but not there.

    The most "dinosaur" of the birds. We get them in the yard all the time. Probably hiding from Wile E.

    It's amazing how these birds kill their prey. I've seen them bash lizards to death in my back yard.

    I love this bike!
