WOW!

This new 20' is just what I was looking for........too bad it's 7 months too late. I love my 19CCD and hope they carry over the new 20' floor plan to the CCD line in a year or so. I should be ready to 'trade up' by then .

We Like the Floorplan

For those who think the 19' Bambi bed is too short, I am still over 6' (but shrinking each year!) and sleep on the wall side of that bed. Yes, I can touch both ends if I try, but who tries while sleeping. My wife and I both love the generous shower and a toilet which remains dry while showering. We are not full timers, but at least one trip each year is at least 4 weeks long. Two people and a large dog co-exist easily in what we view as an amazingly functional floorplan.

Glad to hear, we just ordered a 19' CCD Bambi for the two of us and our dog "spokes". We ordered the overhead bunk option to accomodate any potential kid down the road. We were a little bit concerned about the size of the bed .

I agree on the floorplan, we found it was the perfect space for the three of us.


Cheers,
brad. (anxiously awaiting our silver twinkie)

I read on the forums at Airstream.com that this new 20' will have the narrower dinette of the CCD 22'. That would be too small for us since we need that as a bed for two small kids. So while you gain a larger bed with the 20', apparently you lose in the second bed.

bradk -- let us know how you like the bunk. When will you be getting your Bambi?

good queston...

We bought from Bretz RV in Missoula, they have my 5 large but I haven't had confirmation that the order has been placed as yet. I'll hopefully get some answers next week.

We're expecting to see it around the beginning of April. The wait is already killing me and it's only been a week .

Question 20-footer Floorplan

Jamie, thanks for the reference to Airstream.com's forums. There's a fair description there. It seems like some folks have gotten brochures easily enough.

Am I wrong (frequently if you ask my dogs)? But was there once a floorplan image posted early on in this thread?? It bore some resemblance to the 22' Safari that came out the same time as the 22' CCD and was subsequently discontinued. If anybody has a scanner and a copy of the brochure it would be nice to see ... . Thank you!

22' Safari Floorplan for comparison

The previously posted floorplan looked similar to this 22' Safari except it had a crossways bed at the front. A dinette was on the roadside just far enough forward of a single axle position that it may have avoided wheelwell intrusion into the footspace under the dinette. Anybody know this for sure? I also seem to recall the previous posted floorplan having a separate shower at the rear roadside corner -- headroom?? Nah!!!

Pahaska liked the Pano over the bed when he had a 22' CCD and we like ours at the front of our 25' FB SE. It is an individual thing I guess. Airstream has shown a tendency to gradually expand the Special Edition option to the full line of Safaris. The 2nd significant SE advantage is getting the top-hinged full opening windows. I appreciated those on the Argosy and our Safari -- the ventilation is great!

Please post an image of the 20-footer floorplan if you find it anywhere!

Karyn,

My eyes can't read the dimensions of the dinette on this floorplan. Can you tell me what it says? I was thinking that the dinette was about 4" narrower than the front dinette in the 19'. But after looking at the printed brochure I have, I see that some of the dinettes situated on the side (rather than front) are only 1" narrower than the front dinette Bambi. That wouldn't be such a huge difference for the kids.

Thanks for posting the floorplan!

-Jamie

Dinette measurments in New 20' Safari

Hi Jamie,

The dinette measurement is listed as 38"x76" in the 20'.


That's just 2" narrower than listed for the 19'.

I saw the new 20' Bambi last week. We haven't bought yet, because my wife only wants two things in a travel trailer: a bathroom big enough to turn around in, and a full size mattress. The mattress was too narrow to her liking in the 20' and she says the people at Airstream "just don't get it."

Don't get the whole thing...

Guess I don't get the whole 'new model, I GOTTA trade' thing....

But then I have no where to go with my 34' as far as bigger goes.... Unless I am going to something other than AS...

And that ain't happening...! Guess I'll sit here and watch the fun!

Happy trading! Hope 'ya get what 'ya want this time!

peace

Axel

We would LOVE a 19' Bambi with the 16' layout

We would LOVE to be able to buy a 19' Bambi with the 16' layout and real bed space.
An extra 15" in the back would allow for either a curved semi-queen bed (60" x 78") or a 'real' rectangular double bed (54" x 75").
An extra 8" in the dinette (to 48") would yield a 'three quarters' bed for our 2 kids as well as giving us a bit more room when we eat.
And the last 13" would make the wet bath more spacious and add to the wardrobe and/or kitchen space.

We ended up going with a 16' quiksilver bambi for a number of reasons...we love the panoramic windows over our bed and the color scheme. But it seemed really odd to us that to get better sleeping arrangements for us and our two small kids in an AS we would have had to leap up to a 28' or 30' trailer.

I would think that we would be one of AS's 'core' target groups - a couple with two kids who want to take them places. We don't want to live in our AS - we want to sleep, have breakfast, go out to see what we traveled to see, maybe come back for dinner maybe not, and go to sleep again.
