Are you going to be traveling with this combination? Or just stationary in a campground? What is your tow vehicle? Can you fit a normal sofa sleeper in there with the curbside storage compartment? I'm sure you have a plan for moving the Parallax converter somewhere. Is there really enough long flat wall to fit a sofa sleeper up against? For the weight involved, it had better be on the centerline.

Airstream's weight conserving furnishings are relatively light. We've all moved sofa sleepers and have experienced how very heavy they are. This will significantly increase the tongue weight. Looking at it does show your net carrying capacity to be around 1800 pounds. All of us find reason to travel on occasion to the next stop with a full water tank. A heavy fixture like this will develop a lot of inertia over road bumps and potholes. Attachment to the trailer structure will be an issue.

Will a commercial couch fit between the fridge and pantry? No worry about that. Everything you see inside your Safari came through the door -- I don't think an intact commercial couch will do that.
