Classic or Classic Limited?

Can someone tell me if there are any differences between a Classic and a Classic Limited? Are they the same unit, just a newer year so they made a name change?

Technically, I believe the Classic Limited is the official name for all Classic trailers of about 2007 or newer. These trailers have hickory cabinets and dark bronze faucets among other upgrade over earlier Classics.

In 2006 and earlier, I think the top line was just called the "Classic". In those years, however, there was a "Limited" option package available on the Classics. This option may have included hickory cabinets in the later years. It also tended to include a red exterior color theme (graphics, awnings, Zip Dee chairs, etc.) rather than the blue theme on regular Classics.

Thanks Joe, a saleman left me wondering what he was talking about, but now it makes sense.

The '06 & earlier Classic Ltd. trailers also included electrically operated stabilizers.

At least for the 2004 model year that we owned, in addition to the burgandy graphics and burgandy awnings all around, and the electric corner jacks already mentioned, the Limiteds also included 40# propane tanks (vs. 30#), a Moen filtering faucet, hickory cabinets (vs. oak), and "brass" bathroom fixtures (advertised as brass but some of which were actually just brass plated plastic or steel). You also got his and hers matching hats and jackets.

If you purchased the Limited option, Airstream also charged about $6,000 more for it, much more than these options were worth. Unless, you just liked the color burgandy.

Thanks for the more detailed info. I knew there was more to the "Limited" option that awning color, but I didn't have a list. But come to think of it, I have seen Limiteds with the power levelers at the corners and no tongue jack before. They also had horizontal LP bottles rather than the normal vertical.

And I think if you go back into the mid 1980's, some Limiteds got a wood grain stripe around the body instead of blue or burgundy.
