Man Transforms An Airstream Trailer And Lives In It For Four Years

I can remember going camping with my parents as a kid. We’d build fires, make s’mores, go fishing, hiking, and all sorts of other fun outdoor activities.

Heck, sometimes I still make s’mores in my oven when I’m missing those nights around the campfire. Just one bite, and I’m back telling ghost stories with my family and gazing at the beautiful open sky.

What I love most about those trips, other than the great memories, is the simplicity of living. You’re forced to bring only the necessities along and really appreciate the experience rather than the material things we have in life.

That connection with the land is exactly what drove Andreas Stavropoulos, a landscape architect, to buy, renovate, and live in an old 1959 Airstream Silver Bullet for four years.

After purchasing his new tiny home, Stavropoulos tore out the wall-to-wall linoleum flooring and chose to replace it with a more modern cork alternative. He then painted the walls a nice, light color to open the space up, installed track lighting, and even crafted his own cabinetry for the trailer.

Stavropoulos’ time in his Airstream came right after he finished college, and he refers to it as his “Peter Pan” adventure. “Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, you get to live in an Airstream,” he said.

While Stavropoulos doesn’t live in the trailer anymore, he still has it, and keeps it parked behind his current home in Berkeley, California.
