Rear queen?
Still searching high and low for my first stream! Looking at a 69 overlander tomm. The exterior is fabulous and everything currently works but interior is rough. Howevery wife says two twins is fourtys and would want a rear queen if we purchase it. To accomplish this would I have to tear out a perfectly good floor? Interior skin? Or even entire body? WOMEN sigh!!

I don't think so. I believe all the "furniture". will easily unscrew from the floor and walls. It's just a matter of carpentry skills to design and install what you want.

The biggest issue will be plumbing and windows. I would suggest waiting for a trailer that has the floor plan that you want

I don't think that year and model came with rear beds, just mid-twins or double. To get a rear queen, you'd have to move the bathroom to mid-trailer. Not impossible, but a lot of work. You might want to shop for a trailer that is already set up from the factory with a rear-twin or queen setup.

or start snoring and stop showering. then maybe she'll be happy with the twin beds. My husband's snoring is enough to make me want the twin beds :)

You can check out the Vintage Airstream Photo Archives and look at photos and floor plans... it might help you decide what to look for!

I would suggest you look for something where you don't have to move the bathroom, etc. it not only will be a LOT of work, but quite a bit more expensive.

Good Luck!

There are some smaller trailers (25') with rear bedrooms but they are rare.
70s Sovereign 31' rear bedroom model is a nice find if you can locate one. They tend to bring a higher price as well.

I agree with the others. Changing the config would be a major hassle. I say wait and find one with a floor plan that you like. It is difficult for sure to wait but I am glad I did; finally found the right one--and at the right price!
Good luck!
