New Forum member here. I've been looking at TT's for the past several months, and have decided I want a relatively late-model Airstream in the 20-foot range. I'm a fairly serious cook, which has pushed me toward the setup in the current Flying Cloud 20, which has a large rear galley with lots of counter space. This floorplan is perfect for my needs.
However, I don't want to buy new -- I would prefer something 5-15 years old (i.e., with most of the initial depreciation hit already taken by someone else
). I know that this particular interior setup is in the FC 20 from '09 forward, and was in the Safari SE 20 for a couple of years before that. But I haven't been able to figure out how far
back this goes, or whether any other prior models have a similar floorplan. Anyone have some insight?
Also, I've gotten advice to avoid model years 2005-2009 because of quality issues, particularly leaks at the front pano windows and the rear storage area. Would you agree with that assessment?
