I've seen the pricing on the Flying Cloud lower. I've also seen more used options. I noticed Bates RV doesn't carry the Flying Cloud...probably, since it is so close to the International CCD.
The Deep Cycle Group (battery spec) on the Intn'l CCD is also higher.
Am I missing something?
The design of the overhead cabinets is much different. The plexiglass doors are sliders, and instead of two small cabinets, you'll have one large one. It's slightly deeper front to back too, (based on how my dishes fit). Everything 25 feet and up is a "wide body" 8' 6" - regardless of whether it's a FC, CCD or Classic. Anything less than 25 is 8' - except the sports and European ones which I think are 7' 6".
The laminates used on the tables and countertops are better on the CCD's - thicker and more carefully adhered. The Safari/Flying Cloud laminates are barely better than Contact paper.
I'm still assembling everything I need to replace my dinette table and redo my kitchen. Found the sink I want and the faucet. Have chosen the formica for the countertops. Have decided on a SMEV burner unit, and am still hanging fire over whether to go to a convection microwave. Anyone know of a reasonably priced decent one?
Oh.. came up with an idea for the bedroom too. There is an "end table" on my sideways queen that's just big enough for an alarm clock and a water bottle. No drawer, just hides some wiring. Thought about cutting a Kleenex dispenser hole on the side facing the bed - with clamps to hold a box of tissues against the dispenser UNDER the table. Thoughts?
Might put a book rack under there too. Just to hold one or two books.
Did buy my "washing machine" from www.thelaundryalternative.com
. All that girl stuff that needs to be hand laundered will work just fine. I plan to stow it in the shower - which thanks to a fan placed on the floor and an open vent is already my "cloths dryer".
