I will probably be changing small things in the trailer too so I don't want to tear up a nice one. I've thought about building a nice bunk bed set up midship, we'll have see what I end up buying.
We have a 2 and 5 year old and were in your shoes.. We bought our '68 with twin beds in the middle... We put up portable bed rails and put both kids in the same bed..
The front couch folds into a twin but is small...
We used it like this all summer but i am now redoing the inside... You can do a bit at a time or all at once.
I put bunks in place of one of the twin beds but only 25" wide. and a dinette that folds into a bed where the other twin was to eat at, and a place for the kids to hang out if it is raining or cold.. Making the front couch into a wrap around and bigger to sleep on.
You can see some pics here. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...dor-44644.html
but it is not finished yet.. Good luck.
They just don't make really family friendly Airstreams.. Go figure..
