White VINYL seat cushions? I don't even know where to begin on THAT one...white??!?!! VINYL?!!!!?!?!???? It's 1978!!! ....
Borders on hideous. And that's being generous.
Thing is, I'm not of fan of the dark wood in general, which is why I have a flying cloud. But there are lots of folks who like that dark wood that is offered in the International. I also have to say that these units do look better than what is shown in the photos!
One of the great things about Airstreams in general is you have options. Dark wood, light wood, white leatherette, red leatherette, black letherette... the list goes on. The point is, people have different tastes and my taste and yours won't always be the same. What you see as ugly, somebody else sees as gorgeous.
I saw an international with the white leatherette and didn't think twice about that unit, it's not me. On the other hand, while not my first choice, we did consider a unit with red leatherette, which surprised me. I would not have from the photos considered red. So sometimes you do have to see these things in person.
I'm also not sure what is making these particular units special editions? Just because not many land yachts were made? Unlike the Pendeltons, they do seem to make a few of these every year, so it's not like there is a limited number of them.
