What you suggest doing has been done in the past by the Airstream factory. In fact, both my 1964
Overlander and the 1978 Minuet have their furnaces mounted on the floor below the kitchen range. I am sure that there must be some specifications for required clearances in the literature that came with your furnace and range that would clarify the minimum as this could vary between and among various models available with each. There is approximately 6.5" clearance between the bottom of the range and the top of the furnace in my Overlander and approximately 8.5" clearance between the bottom of the range and the top of the furnace in my Minuet.
Good luck with your investigation!
