Considering new A/C install in 1965 Safari 22 as trailer never had AC. My searches have come up empty with process for installing drain tube. Any advice, tips on placement, routing, etc would be appreciated.

Put the Carrier on our 1978 Argosy so we wouldn't have to go to the expense of fabricating a new pan. Camping World wanted $800.00 for the pan. I think Inland RV has them now. The Carrier just drains over the side of the Argosy. Since the Argosy is painted this is not a problem. I'm not sure if the same is true for the skin on the AS.

If you want to use a Dometic unit (what the factory uses on new models) you can get the drain pan from any Airstream dealer.

OR................you can get the Dometic drip kit with 2 little cups, hose, connectors, a second A/C gaesket, etc. and forget about the pan.

Either option is FAR less than $800!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the Dometic stock # is 3107668.016...........

It's been reported that wiring and a drain have been installed at the factory for A/C even if it was not installed as an option.
My Globetrotter was partially gutted when I bought it. Never found a drain tube but the wiring was between the two roof vents.
The Coleman on the GT drains down the street-side skin. Haven't had a problem in 8 years.

The A/C drain routing still needs help, even on new units. Thanks for the tip on the kit, because right now my streetside tire looks like a passing pooch is wetting it down.

Pretty close. Did you ever see that t-shirt of a little cowboy titled "Whiz Kid?"

Can't find it on the Web. Dates from 25 years ago. I'll send you a PM if I find it, rather than take this thread too far OT.
