2004 28' Classic

We acquired our 2004 28 foot twin classic a few months ago and the floor plan is absolutely perfect for the two of us. In addition, the upholstery on the very comfortable couch is fairly neutral and the other colors are also soft. I would have preferred the aluminum, modern interior, and something other than the oak which is what our cabinets are made of, but on balance the floor plan, cost and condition were more important. Besides, as someone else said, it is fun to put personal touches on it. I just wish I had the time to go camping more!

Quite a few have posted over the years of problems with the mouse fur as it ages. Seems like the glue starts to show through if I remember correctly. Hard to get off, hard to replace, maybe hard to clean. Besides, who wants to live in a mouse turned inside out? The aluminum interior is brighter, has lots of interesting reflections and is easy to clean. It doesn't absorb food odors like the fur can.

It can be cleaned with Woolite, unless you've stained it with something unusual. It's just velour fabric glued over sheet aluminum, and Woolite works on velour. Figured that out after swatting a deerfly against it, then had to clean up the bug juice.

I can understand why some don't like it, but in the Interstate class Bs, the velour is necessary sound-deadening material while en route, so I'm kind of stuck with it.

A mouse turned inside out? Never saw a mouse with fur on the inside, but ick, what a mental picture that is!

The inside would look better than the outside unlike an Airstream.
