    Living in an Airstream trailer?

    Any one here live in one for an extended time like a year or so? Ever seen one set up for printing or processing?

    This one looks interesting rip out the dinette and stick in printers, scanners and computers. I can eat my MRE's out of the bags is in my Aeron chair.

    In New Zealand theres quite a few of this type of vehicle, they get together during summer selling crafts... I've seen this one and is quite something.

    However here, there are more modern 7meter buses that can be driven with normal car license, and I thought it would be good to have with a decent printer.... and room to sleep/cook....

    My concern for ink-jet printers would be that the heads would be getting jarred quite a bit if they weren't locked down. I have a conversion van set up with four dye-sublimation printers that I use on the weekends at horse shows with a couple of photographers and shoot on speculation. We usually mange to print about 4-800 @ 8x14" packages on a weekend. Back in the olden days of film, I had a step van configured as a wet lab with modular type processors. Another photographer and I used to do the trade show circuit and make 8x10's on spec of the events. The advent of digital took the "mess" out of that kind of lab work. Using computer monitors we now have everything pre-approved prior to printing. The dye-sublimations are fast! Ahh! The life of a gypsy photographer.

    Too small for full time.

    I lived in a 38' Teton 5th wheel for 10 years and is was quite adequate.
