(Sept. 18, 2018) -- Amy and Ed are rockstars in their own right, at least they're becoming ones in the tiny living world. The couple has been together for more than twenty years, and while their past lives have nothing to do with renovating—Amy is a creative director in New York City, and Ed works in music—they've recently (and accidentally) become Airstream flippers, better known as Hudson Valley Airstreams.

Couple turns decrepit Airstreams into dream homes

NEW YORK — After nearly a minute heading down a long, windy driveway in upstate New York, I finally reach Ed Potokar and Amy Rosenfeld’s private property. First, I see a workshop—music is playing, and Ed is somewhere inside, probably welding metal or sketching—and then I spot the Airstream. And then another Airstream. And again, another Airstream. The door to the shiniest trailer on the property opens, and Amy is walking down the steps. “Hello,” she says before introducing me to Janis. Janis is the 29-foot 1969 Airstream that’s parked behind her, which is fittingly named after the 1960s “Piece Of My Heart” singer.

  1. Airstream never made a trailer big enough for more than 2 fulltimers. You can add beds and make it look nice but it is crowded. If my grandchildren I’d think child abuse if used for more than vacations.
