Queen to twin conversion

Finally got around to doing the conversion. Not real hard but time consuming. Obviously, nothing in an AS is square and you certainly can't use a level. In making the change, for woodwork that is visible (except the night stand top) I re-used the existing queen base, making changes as necessary. The front of the nightstand drawer was the door of the original nightstand which was originally installed vertically. I used the front and made a new carcass. AS of Arkansas (GMorris here) installed a rear storage access door so I could have plenty of outside storage (they did a great job). I already had the small storage access door on the street side. I opted not to install a curbside storage access door as I wanted more inside drawer depth on the curb side. You can see that in the pictures which I hope are attached.

Great job, I like the additional storage. Thanks for posting, I'm always looking for new ideas to plagiarize.

Good Job

It was a time consuming job wasn't it...we did the same thing, almost. We kept the extra storage inside and suspended the night stand so the dog could sleep under it.

Again, a good job. It looks cool.

Professional looking job. Very well done. I have twins in my 25'Classic but may convert the drop down door with the slide out plastic bins to an actual slide out drawer mounted on a quality set of ball bearing drawer slides.

Greg, I know you did this job back 2007, but I have a question about the overhead cabinet. I am in the middle of redoing the floors and converting from Queen to Twins. The overhead cabinets above the Queen bed require additional support after I remove the 2 side cabinets. I see from you pics that you solved the problem. What did you do to give them the required overhead Support? I would appreciate any feedback you can give me.

Ken

Ken I thnk you and I have different issues. My queen was mounted across the short axis of the trailer, meaning the head was on the street side wall. The rear cabinets that you see in my pictures never had any cabinets under them, so no reinforcement was required. If you are good with wood working, I thnk you will find removing/shortening the cabinets is not that difficult. Short pieces of aluminum angle mounted on the inside of the remaining cabinets will allow you to fasten each one to the roof and sidewall. If you measure carefully, you may be able to hit a rib or two. If I missed the point of your post, please post again, maybe with a picture and I will give it another go. Good luck with your project, we were most pleased with the increase in useable room it made.

Thanks for your quick response. I have shorten the two side cabinets but I am concerned about sufficient support. The Aluminum idea is something I am looking into. Again thanks for your response. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

The old fashioned queen to twin conversion was easy.

A smaller place for the couple to share sleeping, etc, and a larger place for the clothes.

Then of course, the old saying was born.

"Your bed or mine".

"Or both".

There is far more to Airstreaming than just towing a trailer.
