CCD or split bath

Getting ready to buy our 1st AS. If you could do it all over again would you get a corner bath or the split bath? I'm looking at 25 foot length.

We have had both and prefer the mid split bath over the grouped corner bath.

I'm not familiar with any current production 25' Airstreams with corner baths. The largest one is a 23'.

One of the "biggies" for my choice was a shower that I could actually use. I was spoiled with the previous RV.
In many of the Airstreams, the wheel well intrudes into the shower floor. It's marketed as a "seat", but let's be honest, it's a place you can't stand.
As you shop dealers, go into the shower and see if you have room to turn around! Then go to the toilet area and see if you could close the door while using the toilet! My last RV I literally had to open the door to stand up!
They all look great in the brochures, but the real world is where you use them.

MDs post hits a cord with me. 62 260 and the split bath is always seeming to fit those 510 and shorter (and less round). I would love more space. BUT - with a family of four, one can shower and the toilet is still available. So Id rather squeeze in the space and have the bath areas more readily available to all.

Hello from Colorado StevenB: You are wise to ask for some experience and opinions on a potential trailer you are considering. I agree the split bath is a good idea as it increases useability for the family. Some corner bath designs are pretty tight. The best advice is go to the exact model you are considering and "pretend" to shower, toilet, and the like. Close the door so the sales lady can't see you and giggle.

Select the model of trailer that has adequate room to move around, and adequate room for your gear while traveling. Airstreams are built small and a guy can't necessarily take everything you might like. I kid my wife that she needn't bring a 55 gallon drum of cream rinse plus summer shorts and a winter parka with us when we travel. Pack light.

Welcome to these Airstream Forums. I think you will enjoy the Airstream lifestyle. We certainly do.

David
