Airstream Bunks

Hope this doesnt sound foolish!!
Still looking for an airstream for the family.
What I would like to ask is: most of the airstreams I have seen sleep 4. If I could get hold of a couple of the aluminium bunks( v, hopeful) would they fit in to a 1960's overlander or ambassador with the twin compartment??
Many thanks in advance and have a good weekend

A twin is a twin is a twin.
I am pretty darn sure that a bunk from just about any year will fit. I am too on the hunt for bunks so I can fit the 6 of us in my Ambassador.

Why not build your own?

Others on the Forum have built their own. Use the search feature on the menu bar above and take a look. I think I've seen plans for how to do this on the Forum with dimensions, etc.

Have fun.

Go and look at the pictures of my 63 trade Wind at you will see a factory pull down bunk on one side. It would be very easy to build something like it.

Better yet here is a picture

58 / 59 with Bunks

Hello. I have a bunk in my 58 Sovereign of the road! It is curved years, not square like the 59 and on. A freind of mine, Colin Hyde of GSM Vehicles (Adirondack Airstream retorer) has a 59 Ambassador with both bunks. Mine is missing one, but it originally had two..and I plan on using one to make the other. Here is a picture if I can get it posted...Mine came from the Famous RichardT from Bat Cave below.....I can feel the Karma flowing!!!
