Airstream Guesthouse

Something we have wanted to do for a while now is put an Airstream in the backyard and use it as a guesthouse.  I have all sorts of ideas and visions (as usual).  It is really just the logistics at this point.  Money, obviously, but also, would anyone want to stay in it?  Do we buy an old one that maybe is not fit for travel and just leave it there, or do we get one we can tow so we can take it to the farm and "camp" our way across the country?  I routinely check them out on craigslist, but there is so much I don't know about travel trailers.  What to look for, how to spot problems, what part of the airstream is the "tongue."  

I've been looking for a picture to do my vision some sort of justice, but there is none to be found...

The Blackmen would definitely stay in the airstream!

sweet. So what do you think, do we get an old stationary one or one we can bring to the farm?

While I think it would be AWESOME either way, I am quite partial to the dual-purpose one you could take to the farm. But as I think about it, I think I'm finding some of the issues you face...love to hear you and Patrick discussing it, though!

Thinking about getting a car insurance quote?

A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
