She is a 16’ Bambi “Sport”, the lightest and smallest Airstream that is made! Inside she is stripped-down sleek with the same aluminum walls on the inside that are on the outside.
At 16’, there is only one Airstream floor plan to choose from.
Some of the Silvermine’s stats are:
8 feet wide (outside)
16’ 4” long (hitch to bumper)
23 gallon water tank (fresh)
21 gallon black/grey water (holding tank)
2,897 total weight (unloaded)
a unique "rubber" floor
a TV and audio sound system that is iPAD ready
Her upholstery is “cinnabar” with nice rusty red, yellow and tan colors – perfect for my accessory ideas. The front dinette also makes into an extra bed or a front sofa. The front wrap-around window offers a great view!
The bed in the back is always made up, and it stretches a spacious 7' 7" across the width of the trailer. It is a cozy little nest that I have every intention of accessorizing with my all of my little trailer themed fabrics. For now, the quilts I made for the TAB work just fine!
As you come in the door, the kitchen is dead ahead with everything I need to prepare a meal: refrigerator, microwave, sink, and stove-top, a water heater and 23 gallon water tank.
The bathroom is small, but is always there if you need it! There is even a nice tinted privacy window for viewing and to alleviate claustrophobia!
The hand shower can be used inside or passed through a little hatch opening to use on the outside!
So now for the fun part: shopping for special purchases (think silver!) and time spent organizing all those lovely little spaces. There is also that little chore of learning all about the Silverstream's various systems, especially learning to hook and unhook. A fun shake-down campout is very much in the future -- somewhere close to home -- and close to a Walmart!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
