After replacing a rotted through rear bath floor and all the appliances I have the trailer "travel ready". The NT30 furnace moves air in the underfloor ducts adequately. I have not tested it in freezing weather yet.
I'm always glad to meet another vintage Airstream enthusiasts and compare notes. I'll post a coule of pictures later as Air Fourms isn't working for me right now. "503 service error" what ever that is.
Thanks for the reply. Great to hear about your tradewind rebuild. I loved the nt30 in my current tradewind. I still have 2 nt30s if you need them. One works great and the other is for parts. When I rebuilt the frame I had to rebuild the collection boxes for the subfloor duct work. Mine were set up as return flow for the furnance, one return vent in the rear bath and the other return under the front couch near the water tank. My nt 30 was a direct discharge unit with a return air metal collar around the unit housing.
I am installing the fridge cabinet at the moment, then kitchen cabinet with new nt 20 which will go under the stove. Will send you photos if you send your email. Mine is email@example.com
