Classic 33fb Desk Question

Hi, Wondering if anybody has tried to remove the desk area on the 33fb. My wife and I plan to full time in a Classic 33 but really want the area where the desk is to be open with some cushions for our pups. I dont know if there is anything hidden back there that would preclude me from removing or modifying it. Thanks in advance.

We have a 2021 33 FBQ. I know the Soundbar is there and a drawer under that. I have a feeling there is something under that drawer but not sure. Its the size of the full drawer but blanked out. Ill be at my storage next Saturday and can remove the drawer and look if no one answers by then.

The panel pops out for access to plumbing and wiring, and the DS wheel well.

Right, the wheel well makes sense. That might make removing the desk for extra room counter productive. Thanks for the info.

We have a 2020 Classic FB and we have been full timing for a year so far and the wheel well is located along with a ton of wiring and Alde heat components. Get a 30 Classic instead and you get the space in front of the couch for your pooches.

Gigler, any feedback (positive or negative) on your 33 will be greatly appreciated. My wife and I are committed to our full time plan (bought the truck yesterday) and would love to hear from others full timing in a 33 so we can be better prepared. We follow LivinRVision on YouTube as they have just purchased a 33 and they too were contemplating modifying the desk. Sounds like that won’t be possible for them. Thanks for your time. Jon

We have had no major issues with our rig. The bathroom was the selling point for us too. We bought in Tampa and have towed out to the west coast and have about 10k miles on it. We love ours! Follow us on Instagram @airstreamtrippin. We are currently at Quartzite AZ.

Oh I recommend getting the lift kit installed because it will really help getting around without scraping the crap out of the rear end in some places.

We love our 2021 Classic 33. We were really close to buying the 30 until my wife saw the shower and bathroom in the 33. One look and it was all she wrote. We have had zero issues. We too purchased from AS of Tampa and they were great to deal with. Weve spent approximately ten nights in it so far the past 30 days and I will never go back to SOB. It has been everything wed hope it would be. It has become our obsession. Weve owned several travel trailers & 5th wheels over 35 years - this one is getting the most love for sure. We are retiring in June 2022 and hope to head out West.

Its great to hear all this love for the 33. We too are enamored by AS in general and the Classic 33 in particular. Sounds like some of the early issues like projector and auto awning issues have been rectified by the factory.

We are up in the DC area and are about halfway between Colonial Airstream in NJ and Airstream of Virginia close to Richmond. Both dealers rarely have new inventory of the 33s these days so well be forced to order ours sight unseen. No big deal but it would have been nice to see more in the different interior colors in person.

We chose the white & grey interior. We really like the light colors. Makes it feel bigger. The number one piece of advice is while you wait for it to be built, build a good relationship with service manager and demo guy. I did LinkedIn connects and made calls to both over the six months we waited. I even liked pictures of the guys Instagram posts. It really paid off at demo day. He showed me the list of things he fixed during PDI. Would have sucked that first week of camping. Made a huge difference. I think the factory is pumping these things out as fast as possible and letting the dealers deal with the fallout.

Behind the desk of the Classic 33. In the space where the chair slides in there is a subwoofer and at the base the lines for the Alde radiator system. Radiator runs behind the Corian the entire length of the space.



In the remaining section you have the Bose surround speaker, behind the two drawers, wiring, lots and lots of wiring. Electrical for the desk outlet is also in this area. Along with the wheel well.


You can take a look by pulling out the drawers, easy to do as there are a grab latch under sides. Reach curl your fingers under the edge just behind the front of the drawer along each side and squeeze them to the outside edge of the drawer. Then the drawer will slide out of the sliders. Then you can see the the challenges first hand.
