Thanks Patrick,

Is fun to see what's new out of the plant - the AS Web Site sure doesn't 'tout' their new stuff for weeks or months, after new changes are made!

I wish they'd publish more Options on their spec sheets so interested buyers get a feeling of what's available before they sit down with a dealer...

A 'Build your own' feature would be fun to run through, similar to what the Auto Mfg's offer on their sites...

Thanks again, love the pics...

Nice updates. Is it possible to purchase either of these through an Airstream dealer:

1. Dimmer Switch

2. Retractable Clothsline in Shower

Airslide,

The retractable clothesline is probably available elsewhere as I have seen them in motel bathrooms for quite some time.

Dimmers are widely available and may match the existing buttons and plates.

Love the china toilet. I was looking at the one in my trailer today and thinking that I would like to replace it with a china model when we return from our summer trip.

We had a china head in our first Airstream, a 2003 22' International. Lots easier to keep clean and much quieter.

That's interesting. I thought all the noise from our head came from the water pump.

That's not the noise I was speaking of. A stream of liquid against a thin plastic shell is not particularly quiet, if you know what I mean.

Our 2011 has the thermostat. Still can't figure it out, but I will.

I'll be interested in the inverter. La Gringa develops software, and will want to be able to do that while we are traveling in the trailer. It always seemed kinda wasteful, electronically speaking, to take 12 vdc and invert it to 110 ac, and then convert it back to various dc voltages to charge laptops and cell phones. Lets face it, anytime you put your hand on a charger, converter, or inverter, and it's warm....some of your cherished power is being wasted to heat the atmosphere.

Would probably make more sense from an electric standpoint to have a variable- output dc-to-dc converter. 12 volts in, and various controllable outputs... Hmmm....

Hate I missed the XT Series WH and the new Sony media receiver. Oh well...
I love the interior of the new Internationals; just wished the 30' model came in the twin bed floor plan.

Yay a silver framed shower door! I've always wondered with all that aluminum (silver silver everywhere) why oh why did they choose to install a shower door with a gold frame? Really??
