Awhile back I read a post about a couple who decided to check out of their lives and go ahead and live with their toddler in an Airstream (designed, of course, by Pendleton). They went from town to town, home-schooling their kid and freelancing from their laptops and exploring the country and being adorable and perfect in every way in their adorable, perfect, Pendleton-designed Airstream.
I wanted to be that couple. I fangirled all over their feed. I even briefly fantasized about packing us up and buying a trailer and living the itinerant life. (You know, one designed by Pendleton.)
And then, last week, while visiting Topanga with my two children, I stayed in an Airstream – technically a Silver Streak, but for all intents and purposes identical to an Airstream. And within five minutes of my arrival I realized: Oh. There is no way on the fucking planet that I would live in an Airstream with my children. Because you know what Airstreams are?
Thank you god for having created TV
That said, I very much enjoy all the style inspiration that one can glean from a quick google of “converted Airstreams,” especially once one adds the keyword “Pendleton,” and so let’s take a look at some inspo photos that do not require us to actually reside in a 10’x12′ cubicle with our offspring.
