I know the Classic 360 came out in 1994. I wonder if AS spent that time making nothing except trailers and re-tooling for the 360?

I will add a link to Freds Airstream Archive to the sticky...
It is always my Go-To place for questions like this, and others like your Diesel question Mike. Whilst its not completely accurate, its the best there is out there!
Thanks Fred!
Fred's Airstream Archives @ View RV's .com - 1992 Airstream Class A Motorhomes

According to the year listings there, I see the last 345 in 1990..
Now, from 1990 through 1993 there are 350LE's in evidence, that is a 35' old body style... and the my guess is they rebadged the 345 as a 350 by measuring it to the bumber over-riders, or something...
I very much doubt they retooled for 2 years of production!
The later style slant nose aluminim Motorhomes started in 1993, and the last one on the archive is listed as a 360 in 1997.

Steve, the differences I see between the 345 and the 350 is dinette and kitchen switch sides, and somewhat of a layout, and the rear queen now has head of bed towards rear of coach. No idea if an actual half of a foot allows queen bed to be turned from 'east-west' positiion to 'north-south'. Who knows, maybe we can get someone who has a 350 to measure theirs?
Thanks for a great thread, Derek

If 1990 was the last year for the 345, then it would actually be a 1989...I don't think any mods were made after 1989...a clue to when changes occurred with the slant-front model might be traced to acquisition by Beatrice, but I'm not sure when that happened. Usually, design changes and model discontinuations occur with management changes(read: cost reduction).

350 vs 345

I attached a scanned image from the manual.

Ours has the fore aft queen, but that wasn't listed as an option. Don't know if the others are that was as well. OUrs doesn't seen to have the closet/storage aft of the bathroom that is shown on the diagrams.

Let me know if you want me to measure anything.
