Skykingpilot (is this a reference to the King Air?) - I would love to see some photos of this, it sounds very intriguing!

We have been through more than our share of Airstream trailers in the last few years (25FB, 30BH, and now the 19) for our family of 5+dog. We ended up adding a hanging kids-sized bunk over the rear bed to sleep everyone (photo attached) and it works well for us, but we don't spend more than a few nights at a time all together in it. The deciding factor for us on the 19 was that we wanted something that we could fit in the national parks (20' limits I think), had a separate shower, tank capacity, and a better match for our TV (2014 Chevy Suburban with the tow package - it was quite frightening coming down mountains with the 30' behind that rig!).

We also recently added a lift kit to it to raise the trailer approx 3" higher. We haven't had it out on the road since this change, but we were having a difficult time getting it level while towing (and even then, the hitch was scraping). So far, very happy with the results!

What a great "loft bed"!

We find that most of the national park campgrounds do have sites for longer rigs, but that these tend to fill up first, leaving more choice for the 20' and under crowd.. We just got a late-breaking reservation for Mather CG at the Grand Canyon for Easter weekend (thanks to whoever it was who must have canceled) in a site limited to trailers 19' and under, with a few more spaces available for 16' and under.

There were no spaces left for the longer rigs.

Yay, Bambi.
