Classic 25A / Classic 25B

Drove over to Bates RV in Tampa, FL last weekend. (The dealer that advertises with a picture of a cow saying "Save a lot of Moo-la")

We were able to go back and forth between a Classic 25A with twin beds and a Classic 25B with the queen bed. The twin bed version seemed to have a lot more room in it. We really liked that feeling of spaciousness in a relatively compact unit.

Seems like there is always something NOT to like. For us, it was the half carpet / half vinyl floor. The vinyl floor choice for the 2004 Classic models seems quite unattractive to both of us. We are going to check with Airstream to see about ordering with no carpet and all vinyl flooring with a "hardwood floors" look.

When I went through the process, I did get a positive response from the factory when it came to flooring options.

I saw the "hardwood" floor looking vinyl at the RV show. I really liked how it looked. I would deffinitely have the factory install all vinyl- it would look great. Might not even cost anything.

I'd assume any reputable flooring store can get it for you, if they don't already have it.

There are some new flooring materials that use kevlar fibers in the matrix that are extremely impressive. A local flooring store has installed a large are with some in a wood-look pattern and it is very handsome. The price per yard is rather high, but you need so few yards, if you are willing to seam it.

Exclamation Vinal vs Carpet vs Vinyl & Carpet

We just got our 2004 Classic 28A after having a 2002 Safari 25B. 2X the storage & much more comfort, really an improvement. Our flooring is the combo vinyl & carpet with mint green interior. I like the vinyl in the heavy traffic areas but also the carpet by the couch & in the bedroom.

We found in our Safari that an area rug & a runner help cut the dirt even on carpet & have used it again in the Classic. Be careful & use a no skid device as area rugs do creep.

Down side on the carpet is the factory installed plastic cover over the carpet. During our check out nights at the dealer (Bill Thomas) I found condensate between the plastic & carpet in the outside storage lockers. Bad news . . ., get as much of the plastic out as you can, it will cause mildew. Worst part is its under the couch & bed frames you will leave remnants here & there.

Hi, Karl! Welcome to the forum. Karl is a member of the local WBCCI unit here in St. Louis, and plays a mean bagpipe!!!! Karl spent his first nights in his new Classic, just as we did up at the dealer's during our local unit rally a couple of weekends ago.
