    Oh, yeh! I want one just like it. Our living arrangements are quite diminished compared to what we were used to. I’d LOVE something like that! Woooo Hooooo!

    Hey Nelly –

    The whole run down is on our website – but here’s the jist of it:

    – Dodge truck fueled by waste veggie oil pulls the Airstream and features of the Airstream include –

    – Natural earthen plaster walls – American Clay – now with over 5,000 miles traveled
    – 500 watt Solar power system – Two 130 watt flexible panels (High Flex Solar) and one 240 watt adjustable rigid panel.
    – Outback trio of products – a 2000 watt pure sine wave inverter/charger, 60amp charge controller and Mate 2 digital monitor. Existing batteries were replaced by four Fullriver DC224-6 6V AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) Deep Cycle. We also use a Bogart Trimetric 2025RV battery monitor which tells data like % full, amps coming in or amps being used.

    – Paperstone and natural linoleum counter tops
    – Organic twill fabric for reupholstered couch/sleeper
