27' Front Bed - 2007 Classic

Hi All,

I purchased a 27' FB "08" one big thing that I notice is that the couch cushions all want to end up on the floor while driving down the highway. I'm sure some of you have solved this problem. What is the solution?

Another item was under the shower. When the plumbing was being installed they cut out a huge hole for the drain pipe, this would make it very cold on the shower floor. The FIX: Took some 2" styrofoam cut it to size then lined the area with 1"styrofoam and finished it off with 3-1/2" fiberglass and it is toasty, No More Draft in the underfloor area. You can actually see this area where the pipe is from your closet. Had to make the repair from outside, took the little storage compartment out (street side) front of trailer.

Our 27 FB came with Velcro fasteners on the dinette cushions (bottoms) and a lip on the couch base to hold cushions on. We have about 12k miles on her and flying cushions have never been an issue. Sometimes they get akilter but not on floor.

Hi Louis. A continuing welcome to the Forums!

I'll occasionally find a cushion on the floor. Laying them flat before travel seems to help. Effectiveness might vary with the type of fabric. We move the throw pillows elsewhere.

Congratulations Louis! We have a 27' FB and the cushions usually wind up on the floor if it's a bumpy road. I thought of applying velcro, mine do not have velcro. The seat cushions while they may shift usually stay on, but sometimes I just take all the backs and toss pillows and put them in the bedroom. As Canoestream mentioned laying them flat often works. I sure wish I was a bug on the wall and could see what in the world is going on back there! Anything midway and forward usually stays put. It's pretty light back there with the way it is packed, much lighter than if it were underbed storage in the rear bedroom models. Your fix sounds like a handy one, I'll have to see if we have a huge hole around the pipes but I haven't felt a cold floo, albeit it wasn't cold when we were using it.

Do you think that the large hole where the pipes pass thru is so air circulates from one area to another? All I'm saying is, maybe it is like that on purpose. I think I would ask Airstream before blocking it off. I've been looking at the 27 footers and may purchase one someday. Next time I find one at a dealer I'll have to check it out for that space around the pipes and ask some questions.
Thanks for bringing it up.

Bize...we have 27FB and never have any trouble with the cushions falling on the floor. Occasionally, we'll forget to secure the glass doors under the sink and end up with dog food cans gawd knows where, but not trouble with the cushions. I suspect, because they are pleather and have velcro attached to their undersides. As for the "back" cushions, laying them flat usually does the trick. Otherwise, maybe lay them lengthwise along the longest part of the wall and wedge them in with throw pillows, pillows from the bed, etc. Good luck! We love our FB!

Venture a guess

You might want to see what is causing the bouncing around in the trailer.....maybe your running gear needs balancing.......maybe Andy at Inland can venture an opinion.....paula
