1969 Sovereign Floor Plan Thoughts

Very Long-winded post:

We recently bought our first Airstream. We will be living in it full-time as we build our new home, so plan on living in it for at least a 6-9 months. We then plan on keeping it around for a guest house, so long-term.

I was wondering opinions/recommendations/reassurances on setting up our trailer for the functionality of daily living.

Our floor plan has the empty space up front (missing bed and entertainment center), but does have the two twin beds in the back with the bathroom at the rear of the trailer.

Also, our trailer is in pretty good original condition, so I didn't want to modify much to it-> If I go the way of my thoughts I just have to remove the two twin beds and install a desk.

We have a large dog who needs his dog crate (think 80lb German Shepherd size crate). He has anxiety issues and doesn't function well without it- (read eat the house), so I have to find space for it. Should I remove one of the twin beds and put it there? I was thinking of putting a desk high above it so he can't chew it. That way I still can use some of the space.

Should we go the route of the dinette setup with the cushions and make that our full-time bed? Is that the most comfortable? Is it quick and easy as we would have to do it every day, or should we buy an actual bed? We do have the original furnace up front and I don't know if it works.

If we bought a bed and put it in the space at the front location then where should we put the dinette table? Should we remove the other twin bed and make it a dinette table that can fold down into a bed?

Should I try to find space for a living room area?

Whew. I would appreciate thoughts on my late-night ramblings as I try to figure out how to make my new home functional and comfortable for the long-haul.
