Wondering if the earlier models are capable of being converted to the latter aft bathroom setup? If so, are parts and pieces still able to be sourced? How well does Airstream support this legacy model with parts availability?
Thanks in advance!

I'm going to give you my 2 cents worth of advice, and that may be overstating it's value by about 2 cents.
The latter bathroom setup for the B190s certainly beats the heck out of the earlier designs, but not by a whole heck of a lot. I cannot for the life of me figure out why in the world you need a dinky ass sink in that bathroom when you're in a 19Ft motorhome, 6 feet from the kitchen sink. And, for me at least, getting rid of the black tank and associated sewage issues is a pretty important part of my remodel.
Since you'll have to essentially gut the back end of the rig anyway, I would look into a standalone shower pan with either a diverter style toilet or a cartridge type. These things are pretty easy to work on (I'm assuming your doing this yourself) and once you strip everything out you might find you'll have a better idea than Airstream did back in the 90's.
Anyway, good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
