I hate to sound anticlimactic, but day-to-day life in an airstream is pretty much the same as living in a house. Just with less space.
The difference for me is the constant tickle of inspiration that buzzes your insides while looking around the room; like you’re in the secret clubhouse you always wanted as a kid and finally get a chance to play in.
I compare traveling with an airstream as an upgraded version of how we travel in our Sprinter Van. We have a sleeping platform in our van, as well as space to use a small gas stove, which means we can make a home anywhere we park.
(If you love road tripping in your car, just imagine if you could park and make hot tea or take a nap. UPGRADE!)
That was my favorite part about living in a sailboat. No matter where we traveled, from Washington state to Baja and down the coast of mainland Mexico, we were always home❤️ Bonus for boat life: you can lay down for a nap or make food while traveling. You can’t really do that in a van or trailer.
Still, traveling rules no matter how you do it. Adventures lie ahead in many forms!
Normal Airstream Life
To illustrate, here are a few images to give you an idea of how we live in a vintage airstream on the daily:
