Airstream Business/Living Partnership Opportunity

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Hey folks,

I’m planning to buy this Airstream this year, move it to a permanent location in Portland, and rent it out as a vacation rental in the summer months. If you know someone in NE PDX with a big backyard who might already be renting rooms on the side, please forward along. $200 reward to anyone who finds me the winning situation!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Airstream Business/Living Partnership Opportunity

You: Own your own home in NE Portland in walking distance to Alberta or Mississippi.

Looking to make $200 extra a month in the winter and $400+ extra a month in the summer to accommodate a 32 ft. Airstream in your backyard that would plug into the grid.

Me: Looking for a homeowner interested in a creating a living/business partnership that would accommodate the Airstream.

In the summer months, I live in Bend, and would like to rent it out in Portland on Air B & B for $100/night for $500 week. In the winter, I would live there most of the time and might rent it here and there if I’m away.

The Airstream is 32-foot custom redesign. See photos here: http://xcapepods.com/. Originating from the 1960s, it has been fully gutted and in place of old carpets and outdated fixtures, teak floors have been added, along with solar panels, a fully functioning marine bathroom (with shower), electric stove, full fridge, comfortable double bed, huge wrap around dining area and whatever other amenities we could imagine: a record player with a collection of local Portland bands for example, or an iPod dock, etc.

The ideal partner would be someone who already has a room or two on Air B & B who is used to the concept of hosting guests and would be able maintain the Airstream as a dream destination for those looking for accommodation in NE Portland.

Backyard space needs to be big enough for the 32 x 20 footprint of the Airstream with the awning pulled out. Ideally there would be plenty more space in the backyard for garden/firepit etc. There will be some creative engineering logistics involved in getting the Airstream plugged into the grid, but I plan on hiring outside help for this stuff.

Please drop me a line if you are interested, and perhaps we could meet next time I am in Portland. Thanks!
