I forget !!

About them Bowlus's ... or would that be Bowli?

What would the correct plural be?

Hot Chicks in your pic!. Gotta love the calf length skirts!

Why is the one in the black skirt pinching the butt of the other one? Notice the BIG grin!


Thanks for the reminder!

Bailey Design

The Bailey design looks like the inside of an aircraft. I like the openess, but it too is a little too "industrial" for my taste.

I like the looks of the "Deem" Airstream, but I suspect that if I saw it in person, I too would think it a little sterile.

While it's true that this post-modern look isn't for everyone...at least someone is coming up with choices, possibilities, dreams. That is why I also love the GMC motorhome.

Unless you're truly avant garde and appreciate the differentness of it and design in general, I can see where it wouldn't appeal to the masses. I wouldn't want it to anyway!

You are right! Variety is the spice of life.

Thumbs up

A little late to respond, but both my wife and I would love to see a CCD designed interior in a Safari 27A floorplan. I noticed that AS dropped the Safari 27 for 2003. Maybe there is a chance that the CCD's will be showing up in longer floorplans.

I love the Deam design and very seriously considered it, but ended up with a Bambi instead. Mainly because of the bathroom shower arrangement. The Deam model doesn't have a separate shower (it has the shower built in the same enclosure as the toilet and the only mirror and vanity unit is in the same enclosure). It was a hard decision and we looked at both units side by side for nearly a whole day before deciding that the Bambi was a more practical unit for our mobile base camp. The Bambi is great we've had it since Jan 17, and have used it for 5 weekend trips so far. Can't go out with it next weekend, but we are looking forward to the weekend after.

Ah...I could take it or leave it. It looks nice, but most likely would not buy one. It's kind of sterile.

What about this design?

One of the reasons that I bought my A/S was to create my "dReam" design. I have been playing around with several layout designs.

I know many of you will think that I am crazy, but what do you think about this layout for my '74 Tradwind 24'?

Big CCD

I like the layout of the 28' CCD, but I don't like the CCD interiors at all.

What I think would be a real winner would be the 28' CCD layout with the International AS interior (headliner and laminates). That would be just about my ideal Airstream.

I like the front dinette. Is the table removeable and/or does it collapse into a bed?

In the back are those bunks and a twin/queen bed. I think this look very interesting!

Eric,

Currently, it is only my wife, me, and one son (6 months). We aren't planning on having any more children anytime soon. So... I thought that the 24' would be just barely long enough for us.

I was thinking of putting a sing bunk above the double bed in the back of the trailer. I was debating about the front dinett. My current thougt is to create a table that can fold in half so that the "dinett" can be used as a couch with more leg room. I also thought that the half of the table that doesn't fold could have a compartment for a laptop built under.

I don't know if that makes sense, but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Patrick,

Either way, it works for me. I like the concept totally!

Regards,

Eric
