Introducing.. Aphrodite

Hello Fellow Airstreamers
After months of lurking here on the Forum, we purchased our first Airstream (and first travel trailer!). We are the proud owners of a 2014 International Sterling 27FB.

A familiar story...we started out thinking how wonderful a 19' FC would be...then kicked some tires and decided that we needed at least 23' and maybe a 25'...and those International touches are so nice. Then we toured a 27' and learned the true difference between a "N-S" bed and an "E-W" bed. And, gee, the weight difference is pretty small...

We really like contemporary design and when we saw the Sterling cabinetry we loved it immediately, but couldn't get over the Purple or Mustard carpeting. JC wouldn't do a special order with different flooring so we had to come up with plan "B".

Our 27 is now at Timeless Travel Trailers in Wheat Ridge, CO where it will undergo some revisions before we hit the road:
New wood flooring
ProPride P3 Hitch
Solar & new batteries
New ultraleather & fabrics

Pictures to follow.

We really appreciate the resource that AirForums has been in this process and look forward to seeing you on the road!

Welcome the the forums.
I am just amazed that you can't special order flooring and soft goods from Airstream.
Looking forward to the photos.

Dan
