St. Pete company offers retro Airstream rentals for out-of-town guests

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Let's say you've got a gaggle of guests headed to St. Pete for a big getaway, maybe even a wedding. Where do they stay?

A St. Petersburg resident, Terri Shapiro, has come up with a cool solution to add more room for your guests, without having to actually build a new guest room.

According to a story from our news partners at the Tampa Bay Times, Shapiro and her company GuestWings will rent you a classic Airstream trailer with all modern conveniences. Hosts can't hitch up and head to the great outdoors in the trailer, however the trailer can come in handy in a pinch if they have unexpected company or want to host more visitors.

GuestWings will drop off a 24-foot long, 8-foot wide trailer with a kitchenette and bathroom and leave it in the host's driveway or backyard. Voila, instant guesthouse.

Shapiro's business model is like national company Airbnb, but instead of guests taking over a guest room, they have the comfort and access of the trailer.

Shapiro told the Times that the cost of renting the trailer runs in line with an average hotel stay.
