Having a trailer like this will make that easier because it’s lighter and more aerodynamic than a tiny house.

    I’ve always been attracted to the looks of an Airstream but thought because of their shiny exterior they must be hot inside and expensive to a/c.

      Well, not really because of the Shiny exterior, just a issue with RV’s in general because most have little to no effective insulation value and those that do tend to be very high priced.

      Mind, while aluminum is a good heat conductor it’s also what is used in radiant barriers, which helps limit how much heat it actually absorbs and the wall construction does include a thin thermal break and insulation layer. Most RV’s just have very thin walls and aren’t particularly air-tight, as the biggest reason they can need significant heating and cooling…

      However, people who remodel them often opt to thicken the walls for added insulation and AirBNB’s will usually always be plugged in. So no issue with running the AC continuously when needed and depending on size, 2-3 AC units can be run at the same time to handle the really hot days… Thus some of these rentals can be more pleasant to stay at than others…

    This is NOT a “Vintage” Airstream. In the Airstream world, vintage is over 25 years old, which this one in the artilce looks to be a later model circa 2010+

      Well, it depends what is meant by vintage as age is only one way to refer to it but it can also be referred in terms of where the design/style originated.

      In this case the Safari model was first introduced in the 1950s but was re-invented in 1997 when they brought it back and have been producing it ever since then… So modern take on a vintage model…

      Similar to when referring to vintage style houses like Craftsman, Victorian, etc.

    For the sake of the planet and the benefit of the people living there: trees pleaseeeeeee, Louise ! I am not a landscape architect, but I believe that I see some places where trees could be planted that would, at least, help to reflect some of the sun during the nearly unbearable Texas summer. But, as I have written before on this web site, the planting of trees must to be considered from early in the design process; certainly not as an afterthought.

      I am eating a large crow sandwich right now. (Do U young readers know the old expression “to eat crow”?) I viewed the Community First Village film only after I made my comment above. Mea culpa… mea culpa… mea maxima culpa!!! (Look it up.) I see that many trees have been planted, especially amongst the homes in the Tiny Town part of Phase One of the community. Very well done!!! Frankly, I can see where more trees can be added, but what has been done so far is life affirming and thrilling. My highest compliments and thanks to the kind Christian people that have established and maintain this service to the homeless. These comments are respectfully submitted. Stephan of Arkansas
