Looks like an expensive hotel room. Really Suite!

Waiting to hear if I won the Lottery!

Mirror image... sink area/counter is stylish but not functional for us except for popping dinner into the microwave... Stylish... that's it. Airstream seems to have gotten stuck on one design that they use now for everything changing finish (fit's still the same) & color. Upostry material looks like it'll wear easiy. And what the heck is that big foam wedge for behind the dinette seat?

Reminds me of NASA back in the days of "faster, better, cheaper"... the adjective "better' applied to faster & cheaper, unfortunately & not towards quality.

Hummm... I need another cup of coffee...

I wonder why they did the name change? Not a heck of a lot of difference between the Safari and the Flying Cloud and though the FC nameplate is cool, the Safari seemed a bit better and aptly named. Of course, these seem to be more costly, but that could just be the annual price increase.

I always wondered why they took the International CCD and named it the Safari SE. That diluted the 3 distinct product lines IMO.

We have a 2008 Safari SE 20. The 2009 Flying Cloud 20 has the exact same floorplan and same interior with minor changes such as different colors and vinyl flooring. The exterior's major change is that the window on the right side above the galley area is now one, and it opens. The Safari SE 20 has two rectangular windows one atop the other and they do not open. Of course the Flying Cloud 20 has the Flying Cloud name plate.
