WASHINGTON — This family with four kids is traveling full-time in a beautifully redone vintage Airstream trailer.
Durable and aerodynamic, Airstream trailers have an iconic, retro-look that is coming back in a big way, as a growing number of people are transforming these vintage campers into hotels, mobile offices and swanky homes-on-wheels. But would an Airstream work as a home for a family of six?
Well, apparently it is for the Longneckers, who are now living and travelling out of a beautifully renovated 1970s Airstream. Documenting their wanderings on their blog, Tiny Shiny Home, Jonathan and Ashley Longnecker sold their home back in 2015, moving first into a conventional RV, then finally into a revamped, 31-foot-long 1972 Airstream Sovereign Land Yacht that can go off-grid, allowing the family to travel full-time to more remote places without the need for standard hookups — relying instead on solar power, a composting toilet and a “robust” Internet set-up that keeps them connected.
