new here and need advice

Well HELLLLLLOOOOOO there.
I am writing you from NYC area. I am looking into buying a airstream and by my screen name I am a foodie. So with that said I plan to combine the 2 together and make a mobile food truck out of an airstream. I am looking into a bambi or globetrotter model. Looking to be under 19' long. The stream will be pulled by a 1952 chevy cabover. Both will be modified and restored. They will both have airride to see eye to eye with the customer.
so I am not sure if this is the correct place to post but here is goes and note I have never owned a trailer yet an airstream. Just facinated with them:
How tall is the floor to ceiling height?
Does anyone have a floor plan of the different trailer models?
Anything I should look for in particular when buying?
Thank you all. I am off to read this forum.
Andrew

before you consider buying anything, you should first, make a floor plan as to what you wish to do.

Secondly, establish the total weight of everything you would install and/or carry in the trailer.

That then would guide you to either a single or tandem axle trailer.

Obviously the tandem will carry more weight.

Generally speaking, torsion axles have a life expectancy. They last typically 25 to maybe 30 years. However, the rubber rods in them must be exercise frequently or they deteriorate, making the axle bottom out when hitting bumps. That happens when the trailer has been parked for a few years and not moved.

Use caution who you may choose to modify the trailer, as that shop must have a working knowledge as to the type construction of an Airstream, and how you can and/or cannot modify it. If not, you will eventually pay the consequences.
