I just stumbled onto a blog by a girl who drove across country in a Winnebago. By herself.
My next stop was Craigslist, where I wasn’t disappointed.
Unfortunately for me – sort of – is the fact that you can’t drive an Airstream. You have to tow one. Except that eliminates her other issue of needing a car to tool around in whilst you’re stationed at a campground. Which makes it kind of perfect.
The main stumbling blocks continue to be:
1. There’s no way my lil TC can tow a trailer. Which means I’d have to somehow buy (or borrow for a significant amount of time) a truck or similar vehicle. (And get super comfortable driving all of that.)
2. I would need a place to park the Airstream. Like before and after trips. I definitely think I could fit an 18-footer on my patio, it would just be super tricky getting it parked there. In light of recent revelations regarding the condition of my roof, my landlords might be a little more lenient, as I’ll most likely at some point soon have to find temporary short-term lodging in order for them to repair things. But it’s no guarantee they would be cool with it as a possible longer-term solution.
Is it even humanly possible to back a trailer down a long driveway and then turn it at a 90 degree angle. Probably not, huh?
I’ll get this figured out yet.
Keep the dream alive.
