We both like the open and airy feeling of our 25FB. With the wrap around windows and all the side windows open it feels as though we are out of doors. And, the walk around bed makes it nice to not have to crawl over one another.

We like classic travel trailer styling that does not try to be a residential house. Honesty in design. The curved forms of the exterior are also expressed inside with the rounded corners and cabinets.

The Airstream will never look outdated or out of fashion.

I remember the first time I saw a Serenity interior. Having seen them only online, I was sure I would not like it. Imagine my surprise when it became my favorite!. Interior aside another thing I love about our little Bambi is the "retro" look. I guess it is not exactly retro as it really never changed from the original (not that much anyway...) but I call it that anyway.

This is good to hear, we bought our 28 2012 International Serenity a month ago but will pick it up Friday from the dealer. We had a boat trip planned and had to leave the trailer at the dealer. We plan to camp over the weekend we had a 2005 Safari SS but need a better floor plan, sounds like we made the correct decision.

When a designer wants to increase the apparent size of a tiny space, he would fold windows around corners, add built-ins along interior walls, and put mirrors (aluminum here) to increase the perceptive depth of interior surfaces. Airstream has done this beautifully, and in coordinating with the materials and forms of the exterior.

Aerodynamic. Robust. Watertight. Paid for.

Paid for - the best feature.

This is an easy one for me - and the answer is - longevity - we bought it for the long term - and - for the most part - recognizing that annual maintenance is a broad term - it is living up to its expectations .....

Those windows. Love the front panoramic window - it sold us on the Argosy, and it's vital in our Safari. We're also suckers for vista view windows - have two of those on the Safari. (Of course, all of this requires vigilance against leaks, but whatever.)

Little clever features, like the bin behind the lounge (perfect for DW's yarn) and the shoe storage cutout next to the door.

I also love that it tows so amazingly well. It's an overused cliche, but it's like it's on rails. We didn't even see a fuel economy drop for the 5000 lb 23-footer vs. the 3000-lb Argosy.

Although I'm still waiting for mine to be built, my favorite feature by far are all of the windows. Between the pano window in front, the three vista view windows, and all the other windows throughout are what love about the 28 International.

I know a lot of people in the RV world think that slides are wonderful, I feel a functional floor plan and lots of windows can give a great feeling of space.

I like the Jackknife sofas in mine (one on the front wall and another on the street side). Separate Dinette, and I agree with the bedroom "suite" in the back. It is nice to have the separation. I actually have a 6' wide closet in the hall that separates the kitchen area and bedroom. good storage space!
