I would also be inclined to take a trip to Spokane. I've heard good things of the dealer there. Sadly, our dealer is more interested in the SOB market, if their lot is any indication.

Like Cameron said - in this neck of the woods, there is one dealer.
On the lot, they had 1 unit; a 28' and a 19'
AS is not a priority based on our visit to them / interaction. While having lots of SOBs - they recommneding looking at others than AS!

It's a shame they can't be more dedicated to the brand. I wonder why Airstream doesn't pull their franchise and give it to a dealer interested in selling Airstreams?

Unfortunately, the bed dimensions are not accurate. The specs for the 16' Bambi say that the bed is 48" wide - it really is closer to 45-46".

Well, then one can scale off of any other object for which a dimension is known, such as a counter length or depth, stove or sink. The point is, once a known dimension is established, the actual scale of the drawing is not an issue. Extrapolating the unknown from the known is relatively easy.

I believe the local dealer is providing the location for a WBCCI meeting in early January. You could call them to find out the time. If so you might be able to attend and speak to local owners. I can't tell you how many attend these meetings but worth a shot since it is local.

I agree, the local dealer is less than interested in Airstream. I believe they see it as a prestige product to have on their lot, but they prefer to downsell.

You might also want to consider phoning JC and tell them what it is you need. Sometimes it's harder to say no to a person on the line than it is to type a non helpful response.

Good luck,
Barry

Sorry Peter - JC is Jackson Center - where Airstreams are manufactured. Being from the consulting world I tend to slide into initials a bit too frequently .

LOL - I work in health care and I thought we were the leaders of the acronym (to the point were we create our own language of initials!)

Thanks for the clarification.

regards, peter

Yes! The platform is often 2-3" less than the mattress size -- guarantees that your mattress will 'walk' when you sit on the edge of the bed.

Hi Everyone:

Well I finally received what I was seeking - and figured others might like to have this information too!
A huge THANK YOU goes out to Vicki at Airstream.

While some have commented that seeing / experiencing the trailer first hand is a good idea - the fact is for some AS Hopefuls - this may not be so easy (and may be impossible others).
As such - having measurements may be helpful!
What follows is a cut&paste of my correspondence form Vicki...
________________________
Thank you for your continued interest in Airstream. Following are some measurements received from our Engineering Department:
I have listed below some general dimensions for the three floor plans of interest. Most cases these are rounded off, squared off for a reference only, as nothing beats a trip to the dealer to walk through and experience the feel and space. I certainly would suggest experiencing the space for each model.

25 Safari:
Bedroom 83 front to rear and 94 side to side
Bedroom isle at foot of bed B 23 x 80
Bath isle width 27 x 98 (rear of bath to forward refer)
Galley isle 34 side to side
Galley top 24 x 54
Lounge area 94 side to side and 52 front to rear

27FB Safari:
Bedroom W 90 front to rear and 94 side to side
Bedroom isle along bed roadside and curbside 20 x 57
Bath isle 26 x 44
Galley isle 45 x 85
Lounge isle 66 x 31
Entry isle 27 x 66
Galley top 85 x 24
Twin bed isle 28 x 66

28 W Safari:
Bedroom same as 27FB Safari
Bath isle 27.5 x 50
Galley isle 30 x 65
Dinette to Lounge 115 x 30
Lounge/entry 40 x 73
Galley top 24 x 65

Sincerely,
Vicki Lazier
Sales Distribution Manager

pdq, did you reply and tell her that our dealer is less than stellar and doesn't have enough on the lot to make any reasonable comparison of one model to another?

Hi Cameron
No I didn't - initially thought of it - then though I did want to offend anyone.
While, yes, the local dealer has next to no trailers, I was just pleased to get the measurements from AS. This allows me to get a better sense - certainly better than a trip to the local dealer!
