Looks like it would be awkward using the front door and having to step over the tongue. I couldn't find a clear picture of this.

Nice looking trailer. Love the streamlined look in the back.

Pictures, please! I'd love to see any photos you can post that highlight your experiences and how you're using it...and how that cassette toilet is working out.

What a beautiful trailer ,seen the original 1935 at airstream factory in March this year,Realy streamlined ,and looks like you can see down both sides of trailer without mirror extensions , less drag equals better fuel economy,I bet it pulls like a dream , wish I had one!

Per BearScream's video pointer to LoLoHo above, if you don't want to watch the whole video, just skip ahead to 9:15 and watch to 11:15. Looks like, as wahoonc suggested, it's not that big of a deal to dump a cassette.

Here's that video link again, just in case: Long Long Honeymoon | #Loloho Blog Archive VIDEO: Airstream Camping IN GERMANY

I'll post some pix tomorrow. The cassette toilet is no problem at all - I usually just dump it in the nearest outhouse at the campground. No fuss, no muss but it does have a relatively small capacity so I just make it a habit to dump it daily. The upside to limited capacity is that it doesn't weigh much,easy to carry.

That would be perfect - it's so light, you can tow it with almost anything.

Scamp,

You're exactly right. No need for mirror extensions and I can even use my rear view mirror and see around both sides of the trailer. You can also see through the portholes in the back of the trailer and see what's directly behind you.

I like it, just wonder how hard to keep that mirror finish? I would love to see one in person.

I seriously thought the video was straight out of a Portlandia episode. I was waiting for the artisanal light bulb options.

But they're clearly serious.

Cool trailer, and nice to finally have something that makes the Airstream seem affordable.
