Interesting graphics, faux window stone guards (note the original Safari front window shown over the sofa), no lower stone guards (not sure if they were on the '97's), no clearance lights up on top, low clearance lights where the stone guards would be (again this may be stock '97 issue). Looks pretty sharp.

I'll have to agree with Jack, most noticable: the full-wrap exterior window covers with a single front window in the body. Also noticed the Airstream nameplate is missing from the front.

My question is why did they need those swooshy graphics down the side?

At least the sunglasses look cool...

If I read it correctly it has "full body paint" IMHO that means the entire unit was painted....just think...NO PEELING CLEAR COAT to deal with

Full Body Paint?

Do you think somebody remodeled the front of this trailer by forgetting and pulling it through a burger joint? That could explain the rethinking of the top front wedge sections and marker lights. But why new alloy rims???? Not high enough to get through drive-through, then mebbe tried to back up over the 'Claw'...

Can-Am RV though... I know their electrics are different for new trailers shipped to Canada but don't think it extends to running lights. The shadow in front of the propane tanks looks almost like the contour of an old AMC Pacer ( ), but then the photo does seem to show a minivan or small SUV through the front window -- you should be able to pull mandolindave's 54' unit with one of those!!!

Um - looks like my 97 safari on the inside; but I wonder if the inside and outside views are from the same trailer...
