Bunks

My '58 Traveller has a row of holes above an exsisting bench/bed. I think it may have been a bunk at one point in time. Did airstreams ever come with bunk beds?

Not sure of yours but,

my Overlander has canvas cots over the center twins and my grandparents, now my brothers, (same year, same model) has a fold down, overhead bunk on the street side instead of slide cabinets. Pics would help if you can. Oscar

Bunks

I have seen somewhere on an AS site where someone redone their interior in an eclectic fashion by using tree branches to build bunk beds in the middle of his AS.

It was really ingenious and I wish that I could find the photos somewhere but picture this.....

There were post' that were placed from the floor to the ceiling on each side of the trailer. The post' and the frame were made of branches that were about 2 inches in diameter. complete frame was literally a bunk bed and slept four. (bunks on each side of the trailer.

The only drawback that I seen was that all of the storage was removed.

The trailer was gutted and redone in bright earthtones and was very warm and pleasing to the eye.

If this trailer is owned by some one on the forum, I would love to see some photos posted.

Hi Bugs

Welcome to the group. I'm just down the road in Calgary and have a 66 TradeWind.

The attached image from a 58 Traveller shows a shelf in that position.

This image is from the archives at Vintage Airstream

I was thinking shelf or cabinet too...I've never seen an original bunk in the front curved portion, only on the sides in larger units.

sorry

Again I am really embarrassed by this picture but it's the BACK curbside of the trailer. I know it's a vauge but it doesn't still look like this thankfully I've been cleaning and assessing the damages.
The table was thrown back there sometime inthe 80's. It now is mounted back in the front where it belongs.

I was thinking a bunk because there are two small windows about the right position to once have been for each bunk. I've enclosed a picture of the curbside of the AS. I'm glad to here from another Albertan.
