Cool Congrats!

Great to hear you have taken delivery on your new Airstream.

The TV and DVD option sound great ... you now have something that a Classic does not. I'm jealous!

Thanks, Porky...

The ergonomics are wonderful, and we are very pleased with the design and implementation.

The 15 inch LCD is mounted on a holder that extends about 12 inches from the wall, and swivels. It will also swing around so that it can be viewed from the queen bed in the back, too. It was much more than I expected, that is for sure...it stows nicely with a positive locking pin.

The only design feature we do not like is the steel entry step. I plan upon augmenting it or replacing is with a two-step model, as my children cannot negotiate the single step well.

I have found aftermarket two-step steel models that might just bolt in -- I know a classic-style two-step aluminum step is not a direct bolt-in, so I am looking for nothing fancy, but it stands out when you look at the careful consideration of Airstream design.

The skylight lets in tons of ambient light, even covered with snow...

Make sure you enjoy your classic, and I hope to run into you someday...

-Rob

Split thread

Since I pulled this discussion off course I split the conversation to a new topic called LCD TV's in the Interior Restoration Forum. We can pick this up from there. Here is a quick link.

Rob, Sara, and Jack.

Congratulations on your deliveries! Spring will happen! We are getting quotes for a 19' Bambi CCD as I write this...

Use your new home on wheels in good health.

Now It's My Turn...

This quality report will be very short, as I don't have much to report.

Just spent five days shaking down my new 30' Classic. It came off the line about the first week of Febuary and I took delivery last week. After reading the horror stories about quality in this thread, I am proud to say that there is NO quality issue with my unit whatsoever! After five days of trying EVERYTHING, I could NOT find one thing wrong. Not a one. Zip. Nada. Nothing. I looked hard, believe me.

SO whatever quality control problem the factory was experiencing has obviously been fixed. Simply put: The quality of this coach would impress anybody. I am still in awe of it.

Thumbs up That is certainly good news ...

I believe Airstream's QC has improved as well.

We found only a couple of extremely minor issues ... not even worth mentioning ... all cosmetic ... nothing functional.

Glad to hear your AS is exactly what you wanted and that you are pleased with your purchase. Petunia and I feel the same way about or Classic.

Now ... let's go camping. Pismo Beach anyone?

I agree....it's clear that the overall quality off the line has gotten much better.....

Pretty soon I'll have to start an '05 thread!

Porky,

I have the week of April 17- 23 off and am planning to camp somewhere on the coast, Pismo sounds great. But I think you said you and Petunia were taking off fulltime in April. Is that right and where are you heading first? Would love to get a few forum members together.
