Reply for AC issue

Hi Tiffany!
While our original AC/Heat pump is running fine, we did some research on getting it replaced in the future and it definitely is doable.
If our units are the same (which I assume they are), the Duo-Therm product number is 99176030.
Model number is 630515.321.
I am uploading a picture I took after taking the AC shroud off and it has all pertinent information.
An Airstream or other RV service location can use that information and they call up Dometic to see which unit can go in its place.

Thank you! This is very helpful.

Let us know if you have any questions!
Hi rosmuck3 -- I love your renovation. I'm sorry I didn't see the earlier threads - did you do this work yourself?

My husband and I are thinking of modifying our 2005 bunkhouse too. My husband needs a dedicated work space as we travel. We were thinking about removing the back bunks and putting a workstation in that space since we are kids have grown and that space isn't useful to us anymore.

I was just wondering if when you did your renovation of the dinette area if you considered the back bunk area for your desk, and if you did, did it seem like the compartments cut too much space or were in the way of putting a desk in that area? We would prefer to keep our dinette, but I'm not sure the back bunk area can work due to the storage compartments.

Any thoughts on this from you or others?

Making back bunk area into office

Hi cmrdgrs and thanks for your comments and questions! We had a lot of help on our project thanks to our father in law who knows carpentry pretty well and had all the needed tools.

So we took out the dinette to make that into an office area AND we took out everything out in the bunk area to see what we had. I would recommend you do that so you know what you are working with. We used many of the parts from both sections and reused them in the remodel of those 2 sections.

For you all, I see no issue with keeping the dinette and remodeling the bunk area. I would take out everything and then you can build what you want. The shower drain pipe is under the bunk area and it is a pretty easy job to move that farther towards the outside of the Airstream. Then we built a shelf and a few small cabinets (using the ones that I remember being back there) close to the floor. Then we used one of the bunks and put that up at desk hight. It is supported on the bottom shelf. We had to trim it a bit to be as flush to the curved corner as possible.

Feel free to email me at rosmuck3@yahoo.com and I can give you our contact information and get more information to you such as measurements, photos, etc.

Just thought I’d share an upgrade we just completed. Custom J-lounge built by Villa. Turned out better than expected and now I have a comfortable place to relax inside the trailer. My wife wouldn’t allow me to remove the dinette so this was our compromise. Click image for larger version

That looks awesome!!! We are actually in the process of upgrading the interior, adding a second ac, new axels.. Lots of stuff..

Would you mind sharing the details of your custom order, maybe a PM with the order number and contact info for the company? You took all the work out of it for me and I am going to just duplicate your order for our bunkhouse. Thanks and great job, it looks awesome!

Welcome Tristan!
They are out there and they pop up on the market from time to time. I would try a US and Canada wide Craigslist search like searchtempest.com. There are other ones too. Finding one in excellent condition (most are at least on decent condition) with all the bells and whistles done may be a a lot tougher but you can also add things after purchase). We definitely had to replace and add some parts to ours (which we modified to make 2 offices inside) but it was well worth it.

I totally forgot to mention that you probably have seen the newer bunkhouses in the Flying Cloud line. There aren't many of them either but they may be closer to what you are looking for.

If anyone is looking, our bunkhouse is sadly for sale. Not in "excellent condition with all the bells and whistles" as it is from this group of the 2005s but we loved her as our full-time home. Never thought we'd sell but divorce (no, not from living in such a small space) has forced my hand. Willing to deliver depending on location as well. So sad to leave the #30bunkclub but hopefully not my last aluminum dream.



Listed on Airstream Classifieds, Airstream Hunter, and Craigslist.
