Cabin length question

Iím new to Airstreams and looking for one to live in for a year or so in Key West. I have found a Ď63 overlander which has been very well taken care of but will need a few things done before being liveable. Iím single and am worried that the 26í overlander will be too small and I should consider something closer to 30í. I know that the newer Airstreams are measured bumper to ball but what about the old ones? Does anyone know the actual cabin length of this model? Iím trying to get a feel for the size of the Ď63 overlander 26í

I don't know for sure, but another thing to consider is twins versus a queen bed. With twin beds, at least in current models, the unit seems larger because of the longer aisle. It also give you more room in that area to change clothes etc.

Iím looking at a double. The double doesnít actually have a queen in it does it? I was thinking it is a full size bed?

Right. There are some floorplans with a double, or something smaller than a queen.

Just a heads-up -- the bed length might be 76", not the new 79" of a current Full XL.

Before you buy, make sure that you check 3 things -- the floor, the floor and the floor. It's structural and you're in for a lot of cost if it is rotted near or especially beneath the walls.

Donít they all have at least a little floor rot? Iím not taking into account the 1% outliers that donít. I will check the floor but I suspect that any trailer over 50 years old will have some issues

welcome to the forums! all airstreams lengths are bumper to ball. my 64 overlander was 26'10''.twins were 76'' don't remember the width. i think the overlander is the best over=all length, but try out longer AS to see what your most comfortable with. good luck. kurt
