Classic 34 skylights

Could anyone tell me if sky lights are an upgrade on the 34 classics?
Thanks, Resorts

I am talking about the little oval ones that you cant open. I have seen the 34s with them and without.

I think you are talking about vista views....they are a rounded type rectangle window. Yes, they are standard on the Classics and a number of the larger Airstreams as of 2005 model year I believe.

Thanks Silvertwinkle,
I am looking at buying a 2003 34 classic but it doesnt have the vista views. I didnt know what they were called. The one I am looking at doesnt have them but I do like them.
I have been reading about QC trouble on teh 03s. Its got me nervouse about getting it now.

I personally felt my 2003 was a piece of junk and traded it for my 2004. Though better, it too had and still has a barrage of issues, now it's just cosmetic issues, the corrosion.

I think that most of the issues with a 2003 should hopefully have been ironed out by now, however the corrosion issue may not be. If you don't see white lines on the body, rims, etc, then you may be in good shape.

Vista views came back around the 05 model year, so the 03 you are looking at wouldn't have 'em. They can be added, but I'm always a bit uneasy cutting into a perfectly sealed unit. Having been to the factory, they seal all the seams from the inside, so adding after the fact has the potential of having issues down the road IMHO.

I think what you are doing is the best idea, buying a pre-owned. It always made me laugh when the dealers at the RV shows called buying an Airstream an investment. That is only half true. Since the only real exposed wood is the floor, it's possible that an Airstream could far outlast a wood studded out trailer. But, as for value, they sink like a rock in thrown in the water. To me, having some issues after paying half (or less) what a new one costs would make me feel less upset, but each has their own comfort level.

I would encourage you to read all the QC threads and corrosion threads (I PM's to you), then go look at the unit for some of the tell tale signs. If there are none, then you have a winner, if there are, you should have a fair idea as to what you are getting into.

Twink is correct...Vista View windows is what they are called and they are standard now on several of the AIrstream units.
