Well I answered my own question, sort of. This site has decent layouts:

Fred's Airstream Archives - Trailer Floorplans

They are kind of small to read and I don't see any useful dimensions.

instruction

This lesson 7a in for holes that are left after the "follow me tool" is used. Jon's model is the one used in this instruction. Many of you may run into the same problem during your designing.

Well it made perfect sense once I watched you do it. It's remarkable how effective the tutorials are.

instruction creating windows

Section of instruction "8" is on creating windows and other openings in the shell of your trailer design. This series of instructions is one of the most detailed. It is my suggestion that you review the instructions several times before you begin. SketchUp has it's own method for cutting in windows however it work on single wall models only. We have double skinned trailers which require more steps to complete. The lesson includes guidelines for both the square and rounded windows of different years of trailer production. If you should have questions on this section please email your questions to airstreamsketchup@gmail.com.

instruction Window cutting

In section 8b the placement of the photo of the side of your trailer will be used to in your drawing to start the creation of window patterns. The patterns will be used to cut window shapes in the side of your model.
