The more I see, the better I like the CCD. I like Pat's layout, especially the front dinette. My '60 AS had a front dinette and was great - made into a bed by lowering the table and making it a platform for the bed.

Don't know why they did away (almost) with the front dinette.

I inquired from AS if they would custom one with a front dinette and the answer was NO.

Bump...This was originally posted in 2002. Has anyones opinons changed? From "Cold and Sterile" to Better than the "Cabin Look"?
I never grew up around airstreams and walked into this CCD design and instantly fell in love. Im 41 and think the old look of Carpet and wood is grandmotherly. Just outdated.Am I alone? I know there are Vintage owners here that Cherish theirs, but Even when I had my 76 Argosy, I wanted to peel off that interior color and get down to the Aluminium. Let it shine, Let it shine. Ive stayed in mine in cold days and hold heat very well. Not cold and sterile at all. Maybe a generation thing. Eveyone is different and thats what makes the world go round.

Wow Shane, What a sweeping generalization of vintage Airstreams. I personally think that my two vintage Airstreams don't look grandmotherly at all. Am I'm alone...

Can't say it's a generational thing, we're the same age.

My wife thinks its mostly the fabrics found in AS trailers, especially the older units. (and the curtains!) Even now, AS must go to fabric discounters and buy the outdated materials. We have a friend who owns a 1965 Hinckley B-40 sailboat, Mrs J redid all the cushions with cream sunbrella with dark red piping, new brass light fixtures and a few other details, its still a Hinckley (they have an iconic status in the sailing world much like AS) but it looks fresh and new again. Sail Boat manufacturers went through their "too many beds and stuff" period and began to design, especially in Europe, for how people actually use them in the real world. We had a beautiful teak table on our last boat that folded up against the bulkhead, don't think we ate at the table more than 5-6 times in the 7 years we owned the boat! I have a hard time visioning 4 adults or two kids and two adults eating a meal in a AS dinette. The CCD is a starting point for change, embrace it.

I love the warm look of wood, especially lit by the 12v lights at night. I think our trailer is very cozy and inviting. I can't say I've ever thought of it as 'grandmotherly' - but I don't know if I'd consider that a bad thing either! I don't think anyone would call Mel & Lee's trailers 'grandmotherly'!

But I like the CCDs too. I'm not sure which I would prefer if I had a chance to choose. I don't think I'd turn one down if someone wanted to give me one. Anyone?
