You are misunderstanding what the unit is called. An inverter converts DC to AC current. A converter converts AC to DC.
These Airstreams came with a converter
so that the batteries and 12V
DC system can be powered by an external power source such as a generator or 110V AC electrical power.
Inverters are commonly connected to a 12V
DC connection to provide an AC source. Common application: You can connect the inverter to the cigarette lighter ports of your vehicle to provide a 110V connection.
