In the more recent vintages, say these last 20 years or so, any of the 30' or longer coaches with dinette will theoretically sleep six. For best comfort, some of the bodies should be small. Any except for the rear bath models will have a rear bedroom.

There is also a new Safari 25' "six sleeper", but it has a rear corner bed, as well as a new 30' Safari with bunks and a front bedroom.

Mike, there is a weight chart for nearly all Airstream trailers at this LINK

Let me ask another (possibly stupid) question.

Is there a document similar to the weight one linked above,
that describes the differences between all of the different
trailer names/models, and possibly some document that shows the various floor plans. On the Airstream site, they only have the most recent models (last 5 years or so), but with all of the various models, and the durability of the AS line, I'm seeing trailers in the 30 to 40 years old range.

Personally, I'm interested in a larger trailer with a rear queen, mid bath with a glass-enclosure style shower, and decent storage space. It's would be just for me and the mrs., and I'm 6'1" so headroom is important.

This forum is great!!!

Thanks

I know of no website with historical floorplans such as you seek. The Vintage Airstream site has some for older models, but I don't think they will meet your specifications.

Although there are center bath 30 foot models going back to the mid-70's, I suggest you concentrate your search for one in the early 80's on up. All center bath units these last 30 years are much the same floorplan as today: front lounge area, galley either with or without a dinette, bath, rear bedroom.

In 1995 Airstream widened the coach to 8'6" (the "widebodies), although I believe the 34' Limited was a widebody in '94 - somebody needs to check me on this.

I don't know if a true queen has ever been available, but what is called a queen bed has been available as an island bed since, I believe, the mid-eighties. Perhaps some of those who have one can give you the dimensions.

Good luck,

Mark

Mark, I just came across your postings from March. I don't know if you are still checking this Forum, but if so, then may I suggest you might be interested in something like the 30' 1995 Classic Limited trailer that we have just purchased. It sleeps 5 or 6, with a trailer-sized Queen in the rear (I believe this is a few inches shorter than a regualar Queen, but fits us-5'5" and 5'10"), a front sofa that makes into a regular sized bed, and a dinette that converts for somewhat shorter people. We have the center split bath which has a shower on one side, comfortably sized, with glass door, and on the other side of the hallway, it has a toilet and vanity-sink with generous storage. The bath can be made private by sliding wood doors from the galley and the bedroom. We have more storage than I believe we ever want to fill, considering weight limitations! Under the front sofa, under the dinette, under the Queen bed, over head storage through the galley area, over the sofa, over the Queen bed, in addition to small wardrobes on either side of the Queen bed and also a sizeable wardrobe between the galley and the shower/bath. Also, we have several outside storage compartments, albeit small, but handy. These features seem to fit your questions so perhaps you might find the info interesting.

Airstream widened the coach to 8' 6" in the 1996 model year.
