Not that far-fetched, actually. Check this out...
That's the 45-foot Terra Wind, complete with an area for taking your jet ski along! Now, at between $850K and $1.2 mil, it ain't for everyone, but there's a large deck on the back for fishing. Based on Airstream's monocoque design, the whole Airstream-as-boat may not be that crazy after all. Remember that early 80's Disney movie, (maybe a remake of Swiss Family Robinson?) where a family crashed their giant old airplane into an island, then escaped by turning it into a boat? Same concept!
Back to reality: How did things ever turn out with the door entrance? Did you try tackling the drawbridge concept, or are you going a different route? Can't wait to see some pictures.
