Question '78 Caravanner Furnace Removal

Well, I am the proud owner of this fine piece of trailerdom, and have been working thru most of the issues.

The furnace doesn't work. I want to remove it to make it easier to trouble shoot. However, in searching the forum, all of the simple instructions don't seem to apply to my AS. The furnace is well buried within the curved countertop/cabinetry.

It is almost looking like I have to remove part or all of the cabinetry to get it out. Forgive my newbieness, but I believe the sliding, flexible door is called a tambour? Anyhow, it curves around the furnace, and I can't even figure out how to get it out.

Any tips would be a help. Thanks in advance

Good Luck

I have been recently looking into removing my furnace in my 72 Tradwind. We dont have a curved counter but the tambour makes it hard to access most of the furnace.

No words of advice since I am relatively new to airstream renovation but good luck and keep us posted on how it goes.

Hi, I just started this project today and was at wits end then I went outside
removed the furnace vent cover and there was two screws under it I removed those and the furnace slid right out the front,Kitchen side. Tagging the wires might be a good idea. mike

Can you post a picture of the furnace through the cabinet to show what is in the way ?
