We like the 26U video Patrick from Colonial did which shows very well the features, storage of table's in closet, etc. Wish it came in a Twin version and we would be very interested. We also like the "after" modification on the 25' FC Twin with Gourmet Lounge from Airstream Adventures, except the additional $7200 for the upgrade. The 26U however, has a nicer table arrangement and looked more luxurious. Any specs or pricing yet on 26U?

The prototype was on display at Airstream last week. About the only thing I really liked about the floor plan was the large wardrobe. U dinette is nice if you want to seat a bunch of people to eat but way bigger than I need. Also only a queen and I wouldn't consider anything but twins. Also didn't really like the overall look of the trailer but can't really give a reason why. Although lots of people seem to like this design I suspect a fair number of them would change their minds if they saw it in person. Colonial has a bunch on order so they must think it'll be a big seller.

Interesting you say that; wife and I looked at the video's again, and the floor plan layout; it seems to be a bit tight and "closter-phobic" compared to 25' Twin we have....your missing the extra windows on the lounge area by TV also...I do like the functionality of the 2 piece tables, however. For us, mostly just us 2, perhaps 4 for cards or dinner, but mostly 2, it would be nice to use the single table, rotated lengthwise, while we played games or ate popcorn while watching tv from the lounge area...it also looked very luxurious in the way they upholstered the U couch. I still like the Grand Gourmet addition with the drawers...that is functional.
Oh- think list for the U is around $86K? ouch!

Would only consider if designed with front bed. Nine times out of ten the scenic views are from the rear of the campsite.

That is our experience, also.

Never had any camp facility park a fifth wheel in front of us, but plenty have been parked behind. Then preferred view is in front.

I think this will sell very well, especially if the seating is more comfortable than the present 25-27 models.
