So, how does one know if a 25' model is too long or not big enough? We're hoping for weekend get-aways to week long vacations and we are a young family with one 18 month old daughter.

Also, the floor plans have me baffled a bit. We've found a nice 1999 25' Safari but the bed lay out is a twin. That does not seem romantic nor cozy. Who is this lay-out geared towards? The price is right, could one make it a double with relatively easy modifications? I assume the couch pulls out to a double but the seller hasn't confirmed that yet.

Since reading a few posts, perhaps I should be considering the CCD's also. I thought the Safari was the way to go but have been hearing good things about the CCD's. I really don't know the difference however...

Thanks for your time and I look forward to any insight.

I am trying to Reply to Mike's question. We have a 28 Argosy so we have some experience which may be helpful, if you want to contact me. I am having difficulty getting a reply out to you.

Hi Jean...I picked up a 28' Safari in Holland, Mi. just last week. All is good! We LOVE it so far.

Many 25 ft Airstreams have twin beds in the floor plan. The front sofa makes into a bed for 2 also.

I am glad to see you went with the 28'. We are also a young family and find that our 28 footer is enough space for us. Congrats and enjoy.

Hi Heather, somebody much wiser than I told me in an earlier post to go with the largest trailer you can possibly afford as you'll always grow into it. He was absolutely right - we love it!
