Hello! We are Sheena, Jason and Riley the dog. We started our love affair with our old, beautiful Airstream trailer in May of 2016. We spent the first six years of our marriage living a very routine life in suburbia. The usual go to work, come home, go to bed, repeat kind of life. One day, it hit us that our biggest memories from our first few years of marriage were our epic vacations and rambling road trips through the west. We dreamed up this wild, romantic idea that we would live and work from an Airstream and travel the country. And so that’s what we did. We spent seven months completely remodeling a 1975 Airstream from the ground up. Then the three of us set sail for the North Carolina coast where we lived for the winter. Our days were suddenly full of new places to explore, sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets and time. Our days belong to us. We decide what we do, where we go and where we sleep at night. As unsettling as all of that would have sounded to us ten years ago, it’s become the most freeing thing we’ve ever done.
During our renovation, we spent the majority of our time researching what to do. We decided to document as much as we could in order to share our knowledge with future Airstream DIYers. We spent seven months remodeling Mavis. Then we lived in the set-up for three months and decided some changes were in order. From the remodel to the actual day-to-day Airstream living, we hope you find what you're looking for. Is there something you'd like us to write about? Got a question? Comment? Please let us know! We'd love to hear from you!
