I purchased a 1970 23 ft. Airstream Land Yacht Safari last September and have completely removed the old interior. My wife and I are sponsoring an Interior Design competition/scholarship at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. The winner will receive a check for $1000.00.
Now here's my problem. I spoke with Airstream's technical department, and they were unable to give me any dimensions for the roof, front and rear curvature. The gentleman I spoke to said he did not have any of that information and that every Airstream was different. I'm hoping that there is a member somewhere that would have this information. I need these dimensions so the students can do accurate designs.

I guess I'm missing something here: why don't you just measure your trailer's interior? The competition is to do a design for your unit, no?

Just realize that the inner aluminum skin is as vital to the structural rigidity as the outer skin. Your designers must retain both. Keep us up to date on how this goes!
