What is original behind this doors?

Hello friends,
I have a 1962-Globetrotter. There are too small doors.
Both are one the right side ( the side from the mean door.)
1. One door is left from the meandoor,
2. The second small door is in the end (back)


Both doors are cloosed with rivets.
Can you tell me, what is original behind the doors?


best regards
Thomas

Based upon the floor plan found on the Airstream website, my suspicion is that the access hatch closest to your entry door was an exterior access to storage located below the curbside pull out lounge.

Based upon the floor plan linked above as well as the photo found on Vintage Airstream Photo Archives, the access hatch toward the rear of the trailer on the curbside was where the original Bown LP Gas water heater was located.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

Thank you for the info.
Now i understand. I wonder why there are going to waterlines and a gas line on this place. So i think i have no boiler inside.
And the other hole neer the meandoor i thought it was for the refrigurator, but this is
on the other side. Iwonder now, that i have no small door to change the

fire stick or to clean the roof.
