Well, my dealer is going above and beyond to try to make this work for me so they are trying to work a trade with another dealer up north to get the one with 2 ac units...great people and so nice of them, plus they aren't charging extra for the second ac because of the confusion. I am beyond impressed.

I took your advice and went with a '13 Ram 2500 CTD Laramie and at this very moment we are driving up to Portland to pick up the airstream with dual ACs, I'm so excited! I actually got a much better deal up there on the 30ft with the full awning package and the power awning for less than the single AC unit here even after the trip up and back still coming out ahead so I'm glad I searched for one with dual ACs...also rates went down a bit so that really helped.

Congrats on your new trailer!
Can't wait to hear your opinion about your dual ducted AC's.
You must be so excited

To jkfinephoto.....

Congrats on the new trailer. I do believe you will love it, and IMO the ducted A/C is quieter, and has a less intrusive sound. If you have a 30 footer, as you can tell, this is my choice as well. Now, your name on the forum.... Suggests photography may be your long suit as well. If so, you may wish to check out some photos beginning here... http://flic.kr/p/oMFwn1

Oh, yes, Dodge/Cummins. Now if only you shoot Nikon... LOL

My best,
Tommie

I bet you are going to love both that truck and the trailer! What model Airstream did you end up getting?

Welcome, fellow Dodge owner. I made the switch, love these trucks. Wish I had seen this thread sooner. We are picking up our 27ft FB International Signature tomorrow. Congrats on both your new purchases.

Full timing will be a blast.

If you're on Instagram post up.

Hi from AZ. . . if your new AS doesn't have them, you should seriously consider adding the total awning package. Not only does it help ac, but shades the refrig too.... congrats on the new 'rig', and Regards, Craig

FYI, BoldAdventure, I had a 2009 27 FB int Ocean Breeze. Loved it, converted to all LEDs, other changes. (See photo section) Pulled it about 25,000 miles before going to an SOB. (Tiffin Allegro Bus for the past four years.)

As to the full awning package, a resounding, Yes! This reduces daytime heat and helps privacy.

A comment on cameras .... I happen to shoot a Nikon D4 and D800E, but it makes no difference, it is the thing behind the camera that makes the picture.

And to all who are getting either their first or just a different Airstream... Seems to be really exciting to me, even when coming out of a beautiful motorhome. There is something about the aluminum shell that entirely intrigues me. So congratulations to all...

I have the total awning package and the power awning, love to see them all out! I picked it up today and I'm so excited and a bit scared, there is so much to know and learn! Drove it today and did just fine and am spending my first night in her. Dual ACS are pretty quiet, I actually like the sound. Congrats to all brave souls!!

I'll take more pics when it's clean there was a wiring issue when we picked it up so they swapped out units and didn't have time to do a full detail on it... this one has the conv micro instead of the oven, which I'd probably never use anyway, so I ended up with more drawers. Had a small incident today coming out of a parking lot, went slow at an angle like they explained and like I've done with low cars and boats but somehow the trailer rolled and bent my steps over when they scraped the ground, it was crazy and I could never recreate it if I tried. We are both ok, and I got right back on the horse and drove for several hours while we called Progressive. Jason said he would have done it exactly the same way and he drives a huge fire truck so we don't know what to do to avoid doing it again! Then I looked at the hitch and it seems like the trailer is low in the front, jason pulled out of a different driveway and we heard another awful noise. I am starting to wonder if it is hitched too low in the front.
