I would be. We could use something in that area that would be useful. I believe you are in Fla? We are in SC.

Anyone reconfigured their floor plan?

Just wondering if anyone has reconfigured their dining/seating portion of their bunkhouse? The p/o removed the couch and put in a small counter top which works well for a tv stand, but I'm looking for more seating space. Ideas anyone? Photos?

This is what’s being built for ours right now. Custom J lounge with drawer storage.
Due to the wheel well I could not find a recliner that would fit within that space

That is nice configuration. I like how the right side wraps around which will make it a very nice lounging style couch. It would be cool if it could have ottomans that pulled out to give you a recliner style feel.

dinette reconfigured

Per SC Family's recent question, I am attaching 3 photos of how we reconfigured the dinette part of ours. We converted it into a large desk and used many of dinette parts to do so. We kept the seating area (couch) the same.
Let us know if you have any questions!

Dometic Penguin Duo-Therm A/C/Heat Pump not working

This is for the 2005 owners. Has anyone had to replace your A/C/Heat Pump yet? Pretty sure ours is fried and cannot find the model info on the interior except for Dometic Penguil Duo-Therm. Not really sure which new model is a replacement and will work with our "multi-zone" Climate Control thermostat. Anyone tried to fix there's instead of replacing?

Thanks!
Tiffany

I have not had to replace mine, but shouldn't be a big deal. The easiest thing would be to call Airstream (their customer service dept. is very helpful). Aside from that...

*Do you have the original owners manual / information? There should be some info in there about the model of AC if not a complete, separate booklet about the AC unit.

*The inside shroud comes off via four (I think?) screws. You might have to remove the filter screens to access the screws. I don't recall right this minute and my Airstream is 10 miles away in storage right now. This will give much more access to the internals and maybe show a serial number, model number, and sticker(s).

*Last resort: get on top and take off the outer shroud. This would most surely yield model / serial, but is also hazardous due to being on the roof and perhaps the shroud disintegrates when you remove it due to age / sun exposure.

The p/o had updated our 2006 from the old Dometic to the new one. It is a heat pump model. We live in SC and it is nice to use in our milder fall and winter. It saves the propane, but isn't really effective when you get below 40. If you are interested, I can send you the model number and a few photos. I really think any new model will work. I'm pretty sure they all have the same basic footprint, a 120v power supply and thermostat connection points, but of course verify.

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.

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?
