After college I had this great plan - I would buy a vintage Airstream trailer, gut it, fill it with displays of American natural history and pop culture, pull it around and charge folks 50 cents to take a look inside. A strange traveling museum, if you will. I haven't had a driveway since I moved out of my parents' home many years ago, so this hasn't been a possibility... but now I can live out my trailer fantasies with this:

Hot cha! I should add that it's quite small. In fact, it's dollhouse scale. And it comes unassembled. And I haven't received it yet, it's on backorder. But once I do, I'm going to put it together, paint it, put some furniture and other miniatures and a few of these guys in it, how cool will that be?

You can get one from Hobby Builders Supply, if you want.

That idea was so great, it would have been brilliant! But the mini version is going to be wonderful too!

Living in an Airstream was fun! Liberating, wake up with the sun pouring over your bed and see nothing but ocean, or meadow, or harbor. I highly highly recommend it. Until your second child arrives.... :)
