We have the CCD doors and really like how the light comes through, we use baskets to keep it looking neat.

That does look pretty cool - and it avoids the nightclub look of the red, which, while it suits many, did not suit me, as I had enough of that married to a nightclub owner.

Besides which, the front locker is where I'm planning on putting some of the tech, and there's little opps for keeping that looking sleek...

My CCD has the sliding door - in the beginning we always wondered what fool at AS designed these to open while being towed. PITA is an understatement. Our solution was to wedge a small amout of paper towel between the doors at the bottom to stop them from sliding. Cheap, works well - we have never had one open when I remember to do this (I sometimes forget and soon remember when we open the trailer door). Newer models have a spring slide stop that puts resistance on the bottom of the plexiglass to stop this - I do not know how well that works.

As far as neat - you are camping - who cares. We start out neat at home and rapidly progress to a sloppy trailer by day 2 in the campground. We live in there - it's not a showroom for Airstream.

Except, uffda, I won't be camping. I'll be full timing, so I'm going on the shipshape, a place for everything model, or I'll go insane.

completing an entry

Greetings to all again

Those of you that may not have noticed in other threads. I finally ended up with my baby yet unnamed - a 2006 25' Safari. It was so different than the new ones that I was familiar with and, as a result, I made some compromizes. It has the space of the 25FB twin that I liked the best but without the $$$. It has the open living area of the 23C that I liked -the one with the chest and roll out table. It does not have the 23' corner bed or bath which I was less fond of but I also did not get the pano dinette in the rear area in the new twin model. The windows are different too and while I like the ports, etc. I live in FL so windows are heat radiators. I am okay without a dinette now. The biggest difference to me is the pano window and the covered walls and ceiling. The salesman took me over and showed me a classic with the same walls and ceiling. It was just so different. Reflecting on all of this now, I am happy with my choice overall. I really did not like having pano windows in the bedroom and it seems from reading other's ideas that the first thing people remove is the dinette as they want more room. So, that leaves my only real missing "like" is the pano front. I certainly appreciate all of the comments here and will be asking a lot of questions as I make this AS my own. Thanks.

I was thinking that the International sliding doors would be somewhat simpler, although they do comparatively restrict access. I also like the pretty translucent panels...

Tom, I noticed I never answered your question. I must have looked at your post and said to myself, "I'll get to that later".

Later has come. Yes. The left hinge on the bathroom cabinet came undone several years ago and was fixed with bigger screws. So far, it is holding.

LOL! Thanks Gene. Sounds like that's not an uncommon weak point.

Which is the weak point—the cabinet hinge or my memory?

My memory and my hinge have both come unglued, the hinge is fixed....the memory not so much.
