Removing tub in '64 Safari

Cannot seem to find the info. I am taking apart my 1964 Safari bathtub combo.
It looks like the main part will not fit thru the door. Do I need to take the back panel of the Safari and take it out thru the back window?
Joe

I couldn't get my 68' tub out either. The first remodel I left it in while I worked around it and on it. This time I did a shell off. So I took it out when I lifted the shell off. Mine wouldn't have fit out the back window either.

First in , last out. That is the way of old Airstreams. My tub can out with no problem, after I had removed everything from the door to the tub.

Mine was so big it wouldn't fit out either. It went in before the shell went on.

After looking at the Safari, I decided to remove the rear window and the frame for the rear lower door. it took a couple of hours to remove the window, rear door frame and the back skin. Used a rivet remover tool and a sharp putty knife to remove the rivets.

I know this will be a late answer but for anyone else doing this job, the tub does fit through the door on the 64 safari or at least it did on mine!!!!

it will NOT fit straight through and out.....but surprisingly if you are outside the door, have the tub sat on its side, rounded corner section (the back of the tub) on the floor with the sink on the vertical at the door entrance. You should be looking at the back of the tub, sink side.
Then put slight horizontal twist ( i did it counter clockwise) and walk it out..........
Be patient but it will go!!!!

hope this helps someone out there!!

Just took mine out last month of a 64 Globetrotter. Just like 50dodge said. It was a bit tricky but putting part out first, twisting and angling it came out. But until I did I would have never believed it would come out. The end caps came out easier. I was excited to see it all go through the door.
