Not sure what model is being discussed anymore.

But on Facebook the caption read something about a log cabin look.

I sure don't see anything resembling a log cabin in the photos.

The Facebook photos show the wood (probably hickory like the earlier Classics) and countertops under the bluish Airstream overhead lighting. The mismatched drawer and cabinet wood grain don't help. Unfortunate. It will look much better with natural light, and I think the rich brown upholstery and Pendleton blankets are a nice complement.

The hatchback and open interior is one of Airstream's most versatile designs, easy to reconfigure to suit you. I can see two rich brown leather recliners in there with an expandable hickory table between them.

Maybe because we just bought two wool Pendleton blankets for winter use in our Airstream last week, we like the new Airstream very much.

This is another change I don't like - it lost the fold-up Eddie Bauer seating. The new seats look the same as all the other models - just the Eddie Bauer-style table remains. I would assume that they're just as hard (or easy?) to remove as the seating in any other 25FB/27FB model.

Overall, I'd say that the title of this thread is misleading - the Eddie Bauer is, in fact, dead.

It took me about an hour to remove all the seating and table in our Airstream with a power screwdriver, I would imagine similar time to the Eddie Bauer or the new model, for those who like to customize their Airstream.

Good to know, thanks - I thought they were probably just bolted to the floor, but I didn't know for sure. The nice thing about the EB model, however, was that it wouldn't leave any screw holes in the floor if you removed the seats. Sure, it left screw holes in the wall instead, but I think that might be easier to live with. Also, it looks like there are some HVAC outlets, electrical outlets, etc. that would need to be moved on the new model.

A nearby dealer has more photos & a Thor brochure up here:
http://woodlandtravelcenter.net/wp-c...m-Brochure.pdf

According to that, it's a special edition of only 100, and only for 2016 (I have no idea how many EBs they made per year, but that sounds like a lot). This model will only be available in a 27FB model - for a "National Park" model, you'd think they would have retained the 25FB from the EB line too.

Love the new Pendleton. I wasn't a fan of all the lost storage with the fold up seats in the EB.

I love it! Which is odd, because I hate the wood in the classic. But this feels so rustic yet modern. Beautiful! I'd almost buy one. Almost. Maybe if I didn't have two kids.

Isn't it nice that we can agree to disagree?

I always try to play nice on the forums - but my sense of humor can have a sadistic turn. Example: Journalism Class - what not to say as a nervous cub reporter: Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?

I seriously thought of sending a letter of congratulations to Mr. Wheeler - for finally finding something uglier than the baby poop yellow version of the Sterling. (And having said that I've seen two Sterlings that were so well decorated that I COULD see their appeal.)

If this is the Airstream that says the EB isn't dead... then it's the Zombie EB.

Several years ago there were some really high end custom Airstreams that were meticulously done - one was an Adirondack Airstream - complete with an inside ceiling mounted rack for fly fishing rods. I guess this is a mass produced version of something along those lines.... To me there's a difference between a cabin and a shack. To me, that kind of interior belongs in a log cabin not a sleek mid-century modern aluminum trailer. I find the contrast jarring. Even though I like the more spare aesthetic of the Internationals - I've got to admit that there is a lot of cheap tacky modern stuff and finding the real gems of construction is hard.

On edit I found this link - compare this to what the mothership is doing

To illustrate how opinions vary, I think the fact that you are gutting the French whorehouse interior of your Avion is disastrous. However, you can do as you please because you have to live with the results. It's all in the eye of the beholder! I like the new eddy Bauer, would buy one if there was any money left. I enjoy your comments, well stated.

After rereading my last post, I realized it may have read differently than I meant. I think the modernized interiors look great, I just prefer old stuff, makes me feel at home.

Did you notice in the brochure you have the option of a backup camera. Is that something new? Is it available on all 2016 AS trailers as a option?
