We won't be able to make it to the one in June, our son is getting his degree at UCSB that weekend, yeah!!!!

Thanks for all the welcomes people. I love camping and campers.
The Branson Rally luckly is biannual so it is in Apr and Oct. Dont worry about having an AS as of yet people came without them last Oct and stayed at the Lodge. If you dont want to stay in the lodge bring the pop up and you can roam the other trailers on the tour day witch is sat after lunch. You may just get a better idea of what you want then. Hope to see you there!

Is there a model without a dinette with an island style queen bed? That would be my perfect layout.

Actually after having trailers with dinettes, our first Airstream, a 27' Safari had none. It had the fold down table instead. After a couple of years we really knew that we missed the dinette. For us it's not only a place to eat but it's a spot to fold out maps on, work on projects, or just a nice place to put your elbows on. I guess it's what you get used to and if you've not had a permanent dinette before, I can understand how you could go without.

These trailers cost too much money new, to make a mistake in what you think you would like.

Thanks for all the replys and suggestions. We will be looking around doing a lot of research and sitting in campers before we buy, hopefully. We have noticed a recent tendency to be rather impulsive in our old age.

In other news we just picked up our new TV yesterday. A Silverado 2500hd W00t! I can't wait for summer.

DOH! it too me forever to figure out what you meant by this. Now that I have figured it out it and seen some pictures it sounds perfect. So now it's between the 25fb and the 27fb! Thanks for showing me another way to look at the whole dinette thing.
