FYI: To my surprise I received a call first thing this morning from a gentlemen by the name of Tom at Airstream. Very nice man, but the answer was "not an option from airstream".

I think my last option to pursue and research is finding a smaller late model airstream and having it modified and/or have a local company (I'm thinking a company that makes the fabric/aluminum canopies you see on many businesses) fabricate an aluminum bunk bed frame that can sit on the floor and not require hanging from the shell.

I'm not giving up dang it. I want an airstream!

The PanAmerica bunkhouse conversion can be seen here:

We have ours as Flex-Space for extra living space or "Bug Out" gear if situation came to that need. There were only 19 PanAm's made by AS.

Timeless can start with a new shell from the factory, a late model or a vintage unit. The late model with mods is the most cost effective way to go. We have a client with a 1962 Airstream for sale with three single bunks and a double gaucho. It was a factory custom back.

The Eddie Bauer First Assent unit was built at Timeless from the first Pan America.
