Tiny Shiny Home: Family of 6’s Full-Time Airstream Life

This family of 6 first downsized from a typical American home into a 5th wheel trailer some five years ago, and then downsized (again!) into their Tiny Shiny Home: A renovated, off-grid-friendly, Airstream! Because dad Jonathan works from home already, and the kids were homeschooled, they had what they needed to transition to full-time travel. They’ve spent the last 5 years on the road exploring the country from their tiny home.

Tiny House Giant Journey did an amazing video tour with the family, which you can watch below! The video was taken before the family announced last month that they purchased land in Arizona, and are building a tiny dome home (how cool) and creating an off-grid homestead. Be sure to follow them on Instagram at @tinyshinyhome for updates on their new adventure!

Family of 6 Go From Big House to 5th Wheel to Tiny Shiny Home

The kids’ bunk area in the back of the Airstream. Each child gets their own storage and bunk.

Here’s a look from the kitchen to the back of the trailer.

In the front of the Airstream is the family table for meals & games.

And it becomes Jonathan and Ashley’s bed at night!

The kitchen features two 6-foot countertops. Perfect for cooking family meals.

And the bathroom has a Nature’s Head composting toilet, sink, and shower.

    This is dad’s dream. Not mum’s or a couple of the kids. Body language give them away.

      They could be nervous about being on camera as well?

      They just announced that they’re actually building an off-grid dome home (on land), which is their oldest daughter’s dream. I think that’s really awesome!

    Tiny homes and Airstream stories are inspiring. Love to own an Airstream in the future. Thank you for your stories.
