Looking for front gaucho plans

Howdy...

I want to build a gaucho in the front of my 64 Overlander and I've searched the threads for an answer, but alas, none so far. Does anyone know a source for plans? I sure would appreciate it!

Thanks!

Heck no. It's 100% original.

I'm still deciding what to put in my 58. Was thinking of a U shaped couch, would your gacho be hard to duplicate?

The critical components are the slides, made by Walter Wabash. Believe it or not, they are still in business and still making furniture slides. The rest is 1x2s and 1/4" plywood. If you can build a bathroom vanity, you can build one of these. I can get you detailed pictures and dimensions, but will have to wait a few months as it is at the bottom of all my interior furnishings at the storage locker.

Hmmm

Actually, think I can tell from your pictures how it goes together, just a basic box frame with the slider hinged to the top of it. As I get closer to the front, may ask for more specifics. Got to get my floor squared away - dropping belly this week (oh boy! - can't believe I'm dropping another one!)

HI i`m having the same problem. There is a plan on the vintage airstream site but it is for a twin. I have a 64 ambassador with front gaucho would it be the same width as yours Pam?. They have the sliders at vintage airstream parts I found them at lee valley tools in canada. They have two sizes. Pam you are obviously handy. Myself I need dimensions. If you can did it out Mark I would appreciate it! Think of the trees we could save!
