My wife and I bought it and renovated it right after we got married as we were planning on moving for school and we were not quite sure where we wanted to settle down. After I finished school here in Portland, Oregon we ended up deciding we wanted to stay.
My wife Kate is an artist and I am a photographer so we needed a bit more room to work on our art. We wanted to find some a house or studio with property so we could continue to use our airstream but we ended up finding the perfect house that did not have much of a yard, which is why we hope to pass it on to someone who can enjoy it as much as we did.
This is a completely renovated 1974 31′ Airstream Sovereign that is set up as a tiny house.
We restored our trailer and set it up for full-time living with wood floors, a full size bathtub, a household toilet, a european washer/dryer unit, custom cabinets, a vintage stove, a queen size bed, a wood stove, and an instant hot water heater. It has lots of storage, beautiful light and can be moved quite easily. We originally remodeled this with the thought that we may have to move around to a few different cities before we found somewhere to settle down.
My wife and I lived in this comfortably for two years, but recently upgraded to a house. We would love to keep it as a guest house, but we don’t have enough room for it, so it is time to let someone else enjoy it.
The ideal situation for this is to have a yard or property that you could park it on to live in as a tiny home or use as an Airbnb rental. The trailer is setup for living in and although it could be used for travel, it is definitely suited for a more permanent setting. We want to find someone to pass this on to who will be able to love and enjoy it as much as we did.
We’ve decided it’s time to let someone else enjoy our first home.
I’ve listed it on Craigslist and depending on the distance, situation, and the right offer, I may be willing to help with relocation if need be.
