What are the dimensions of the largest A/S?

Hi all-
Well, after purchasing one for my personal relaxation--I'm now thinking about using an A/S as a mobile therapy office for pediatrics. I think the kids would love it, and I think it makes good business sense to go where the need is. But, space is the major concern. Does anyone know what the largest interior dimensions (width and height) are of an A/S trailer? I really don't want an SOB for this project (what would the point of that be?!).

Probably a 34' with a slide out would be the largest floor plan of the trailers...

This might be a stupid question, but--Airstreams come with slide outs?

Kathy,
The newer ones do, IIRC they started putting them in around 2000. They do add a bit of space in the front cabin area. If you are going to need one with a custom interior I would contact AS and see what it would take to have a custom built commercial unit. That way you aren't paying to have it gutted and redone.

There is an older AS set up as a dental office in the back lot of the dealer I use for service. It is owned by Marquette University and they used it as a travelling dental office with their dental school.
How about a 345 Motor home? You will have more head room and it will be easier to to get around plus set up.

This Special Built was originally set up as a Mobile Blood Sucker unit...

Most recently used as a kitchen for a film crew...

Dual generator, triple on top AC's, special electrical panel for the blood chiller...

It was on a dealer lot in Austin a couple of months ago - don't know if it's still there...

That Special Built is really cool. Any recollection as to who the dealer was?

What is the interior height difference btwn a moho and a trailer? Are there also interior width differences? Do these dimensions vary with the model year, or are they pretty much standard?

Good question. My son-in-law who is 6'4" stands comfortably in our motor home but had to duck down in our trailer. I believe the width is the same 8'7". Glen has a Classic which was a funeral coach and he now uses it as a traveling sales show room for his golf business. The coach in Dallas has been around quite a bit and I wonder if there is some problems with it. Possibly it was just too expensive to convert into an RV. One thing you would need to consider is the steps. The Classic is hard to climb up into. There have been modifications on some. Recently there was one on Fred's Page where they converted it to be wheelchair friendly.
