great job on the upholstery...

It took a long time to find that price! Lots of going back and forth but the POs wife wanted it sold so he trew in is Prodigy 3 brake controller, all the elec cords, hoses, even the silverware and plates! His wife hated it so they only used it 3 times! It was a long drive, @2600 miles rt but it was worth it. PM me if you want some help looking.

Brad

thanks brad....(sorry about the name mixup!)

i will...

i've been 'casually' looking for a couple of months now...orginally i wanted to do a vintage remodel, but the more i read about the amount of expense and work involved, i'm not totally convinced (though i haven't ruled it out so i look at both)

don't know if you saw my edit, but is that an acura you are using for a TV?

that was indeed a steal and worth the drive...something i am willing to do...i love road trips

I believe the wheels are 16" with Michelins on a 25 FB. These wheels should be a standard option without the hassle and cost the factory makes one go though currently to upsize the wheels.

I like it! Not sure if I like it enough to pay the price that they are probably going to want for it!

Looks nice except for the fender skirts, which look like the plastic ones on a box trailer.

Good catch. I didn't even notice that - however upon closer inspection it also looks like 16" wheels and considerably more ground clearance than the "normal" Airstream. The fender skirts indicate that the wheels are farther apart than under a standard Airstream. It's hard to tell but if you look under the side gaucho/couch... where's the wheel well? The curved sides of the Airstreams along with the low center of gravity limit internal storage. The fender skirts may be a legit improvement - if you have a blowout at speed - there's an inexpensive piece to replace rather than screwing up a side panel!

So here's another question. Where did they hide the furnace. It's under the side gaucho on the standard 25 FB's. I like the look of the floor - real dirt friendly... And with the rear door and lift up seating you could sweep it out with a leaf blower!

True there's less storage - in the kitchen too - but even with the fold up seats, some small bins could go under the curved parts of the dinette. I do like the freestanding table. Is this type of table is lowered by having a second set of legs that are shorter?

Wow, I really like that! Not sure I'd pay new retail for it, but excellent concept, would work great for our bikes!

... I like the fold up dinette in the rear, looks like Basecamp style benches that foldup onto the sides, making them look seamless with the wall when up. One note, you REALLY have to bend down to get out the rear.. I'm sure those over 5' tall would bang their heads on the overhead cabinet.

I wonder how hard it would be to graft this to the rear of my Argosy.... hmmmm...

Also, where's the vent to heat the aft end of the trailer? Must be one somewhere.

Where's the bathroom?

Hi, am I blind? Or is there a bathroom somewhere in there; I didn't see one. If no bathroom, then a smaller fresh water tank would work, a smaller gray tank, and no black tank needed.

Ha! Yes, from the galley forward the floorplan appears to be the same as the 25' FB w/queen bed.

This one is the true Swiss army knife. The hatch and foldaway seats open up possibilities, many ways to use it. For those Euro recliner fans like me. Looks like room for two of them for our longer trips, and the bicycles.

Might make us move up in size, except my wife would miss the kitchen in our remarkable little 20.
