I'll go on record. That BaseCamp is butt-ugly. Then again, maybe that's the wrong phrase. I actually admire many people's butts, including my own. OK, the BaseCamp is just fugly.

Of course I'm an elitist. Look around you.

I'm beginning to believe that the new classic will never be built. It was supposed to be at last years show, then they "announced" it in the trade and consumer mags, but when it wasn't at the show and the AS rep did a tap dance about it I was suspicious. With your tour info I now downright doubt it. Too bad too, with the LY discontinued, the SkyDeck as a "corporate only" vehicle and the A39 as your only choice in an Airstream motorhome they are loosing ground quickly in the very crowded, very "same-same" motorhome market.

Too bad.

the value of our motor homes will just continue to grow as the only truly unique travel RV on the road. It is too bad that an innovative company like AS can not come up with something more than the square box motor home. They were putting one together at the plant and it sure looked out of place. The fiberglass, preformed panels among the hand formed aluminum sheets did not look right. Another thing about the motor homes is that the refrigerators do not fit through the door, they are built in. What happens when they need to be replaced, scrap the entire motor home?

No you have to take out the front windshield in order to replace.

YIKES IS THAT TRUE? Scary. My Dometic was easily replaced a few years back.
I too think these AS Classics are increasingly valuable. Looking at those that have been purchased and lots of money put in to make them more road worthy and useful is one clue. Also watching the market where most models have continued to sell at higher prices. Yes there are some bargains still out in the marketplace, but there are fewer than ever.

Single doors will go into the door but side by side have to remove front windshield.
