As we are renovating there has been several occasions that we wanted to check the original dimensions for our Airstream. When we bought it I was told we had a 1966
Ambassador Double, but we are realizing slowly that our dimensions aren't lining up with what Airstream says. In some areas we were off by feet. My understanding was the difference was two twin beds or one double bed so with that logic, I used the Double measurements. This morning my husband shows me the pdfs from Airstream's webpage and now I am lost. The double has the double wardrobe and vanity across from the bed where the other twin should be, an extra window in the living room area, the trunk door is under the bed, and the bathroom wall is right after the tub.
but our layout matches that of the twin... just with a built in dresser where the other bed should be.
This explains the measurement problems.
DUH!, but now we are wondering if this is original... hubby says no, but I have polished every piece of wood in that camper and feel there is no way this was an afterthought. It matches perfectly (type and stain, and grain) and even more, the under-par 1966
handles were replaced with a cheap generic type and the original holes are on these doors as well. There are also ALL the original containers (a twin bed - 6 large under the bed, there are 6 large and 6 small in the dresser and 6 large under the double bed). So the question is do we have a 1966
Ambassador Twin they someone did an excellent job converting or maybe a 1966 Ambassador Twin special order (did they do this in 1966?), or just a 1966 Ambassador double that thought outside the box... Please tell me hubby is wrong...I was just starting to catch up with my Airstream expertise.
