We tried to stay true to our trailer's mid century modern aesthetic. We've outfitted ours with a vintage George Nelson for Herman Miller fiberglass lamp and vintage Knoll Bertoia diamond chairs that we set outside with a low-slung kidney shaped table.
Good luck with your Airstream. We're sure it will be gorgeous and hope that you will be "glamping" soon. We can't wait to see it!
We were used to backpacking at a true minimalist level, but for camping, we were slowly growing from one single 2 person tent to a 4 person, small sleeping bags to giant down assemblies with blankets and real pillows, bringing 4-6 chairs, a big table, gourmet food supplies, tons of pots and pans to prepare that food, etc. etc. This got out of control and we figured why not buy a trailer to do two things: take the "glamping" to a whole other plane of existence, and minimize the mob/demob time when changing campsites.
However, when we started thinking about the interior rebuild we decided that the style would have to be perfect and that we might not want vintage. Thus we are going fairly modern on the design, with some vintage notes.
Either way, you can't go wrong. Those ideas you have thrown out there are more than feasible, with any year. My guess is your boss is going to want a newer model Airstream, i.e. wide or wider body, not a 50's width and height. That extra space makes a huge difference and based upon the styles she is requesting, I'm thinking she'll appreciate the more open feeling to go along with it.
