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!
