It's a 24' 1966 Tradewind! I haven't been near it for a while, but I'll be on the property it's on in a few days and i'll take some pictures for you guys so you can get the idea of what i'm trying to do!

You guys have convinced me to not put the kitchen in the front, which was my ideal plan - but I had already assumed, not logical. figured I'd asked experienced airstreamers! Thank you for the detailed replies!

So the whole reason I want an airstream rather then a van or rv. Is because they are spacious enough to fit a drumset in. (And way more rad then a van or RV) I love traveling, I love playing drums, and I love being organized. I lived in the airstream last year with all of the original components and had a blast. All the while, just wondering if I could fit a drum set if I took out some of the bulky-ness. Which I am confident I can.

I don't have the measurements completely accurate (since im not able to tangibly take them atm) but the rough idea of what i'm thinking of doing is this:

That's just the layout, I have a few different ideas and designs for the way I would arrange storage and such underneath the main components in the draft. (not including overhead cabinets, which i'm still deciding the placement of).

A lot of my inspiration comes from this redesign of a 68' ambassador.
Our 1968 Airstream remodel. We design and build custom Airstream Travel Trailer remodels for private owners and businesses in Los Angeles, Ventura, and beyond.. | ABLE + BAKER

That particular redesign was moreso made for leisure and not full time living - so I know there will be less space in mine but it has given me a lot of ideas!

So thats my speal for now. Love to hear any feedback ya'll got!
