Paula,

Can you describe the curtain a little more? My concern is it not sealing off water the way that the door does. And after knowing what a pain in the *** repairing rotten floor is, I would like to prevent it in every way possible. The door bumping is quite a pain though. It looks like on some of the 2014 30' FC they have a pullout door. That would be nice! Wonder if Dealer could order one and install it. Maybe?

Check the website from my prior post. Go through it in detail. You can see how this curtain works. It's kinda neat that there's a built in squeegee that wipes down the curtain as it rolls to the side. I think that some Airstreams come with these standard, especially if the bath is all on one side of the aisle.

That shower curtain looks like a great idea to save space. No more knocking together the shower door against the bathroom door. Putting it on my wish list. Thanks Paula!

Sounds like you have the sleeping arrangements worked out, but I thought I'd tell you about the bunks we added to both our last airstream and our current one. Here's a photo or two of our current bunks, and you can read all about them on our thread under 1986 Excella.

I love them! My solution is a temporary one at best. I have read your whole thread. I hope I can see them one day. I think my DH has talked of your husband before. Maybe he can give us pointers on where to put them and how to put them in.

Ok, we are camping for the second time this weekend. The 25' is small for us for sure, but there are things we like and are not sure we are ready to give that up just yet.
So, our thoughts are now to possibly take out the dinette and have a wrap around sofa and for each sofa to have the slide out part like the side sofa. It is so easy to make that into a bed. The dinette is a bear to take down and put up. It also takes up a lot of space for something we don't use that much.
Please help me by giving in me pictures or ideas. Skatiero, I think you all did something similar and used a camping table instead. We may let factory do something. Will they do that?

Yes, we did a wraparound sofa by modifying some ikea pieces in our old airstream. We loved it! We are camping with the friends who bought it this weekend at Top of Georgia in Helen, GA. Wish you all could come see our old and new ones! Where are you this weekend?

Hi, that type shower door is standard on our Safari. It's called a Shrub.
