Too small for two? No way! I'm only 5'8" so I get the wall side and my other half is 6'2" so he gets the open end and it works great. I love the 23' due to the extra space but were still in love with our 19' Bambi. Enjoy and thanks for the pics! Ever want to trade up in @ 3 years or so let me know.

Never get tired of gawking at the babies rolling off the line.

Love the decor finishing and colours. The olive satin throw pillow on the bed with the burgundy - classy.

The AS interior-decor team does a great job.

A beautiful trailer; you must be very proud.

Happy Airstreaming!

Oh, that is a beauty. I think if I had the pleasure to own a new one, I would just sit and admire it too. I would want it close by. 1.5 miles sounds like you can walk over just to have lunch!! I make a very nice lunch, if you need any help babysitting it, its getting cold here in CT

Thanks, Fly. Yes, they do a very nice job on the interior finishes. But someone on the design team at Airstream has a pretty good sense of humor with the placement of the lower oval window in the bath. ;-)

OK TBRich and blmitch5, I take back my remarks about the bed being too small. I've just slept alone for so many years that I've grown accustomed to tossing and turning and taking up the whole bed from side to side and top to bottom!

I'm a little tickled picturing 2 adults and 2 dogs in one of these beds. :-) But I'm glad it works for you and the pooches.

And whoever sleeps against the sidewall . . . Do you wear an adult "onesie" to bed 'cuz I just can't imagine bumping bare skin on aluminum on a chilly night! LOL

Congratulations! You have a beautiful trailer. What a feeling it is to take delivery of a brand new airstream. Enjoy it and make many new fond memories.
Since taking delivery of ours this past feb, we have logged close to 10k kms from Toronto canada to Florida and the maritimes and have Enjoyed every moment.

Here is our baby . It is a 27fb 2011with the cilantro interior.

Thanks for the info! Agreed - we sleep in a king at home, so no trailer bed would really be "big" to us. We now sleep in separate beds in the Argosy and we'd do the same in a 23D, or would probably even get twins in another model. As always, your mileage/sleeping habits may vary.

All the same, it's a lovely trailer!

Tom

MiFair -- that's a beautiful Airstream! The 27' is a great floorplan but was too much for me to tow . . . and it costs quite a bit more, too!

Hey Gary - the photos are great. Looks beautiful and what a great floorplan! I'm 6' and my other half is 5'10" ... but being the taller of the two hasn't qualified me for "rights" to the outside position. But I've gotten used to the inside position. As far as the cool walls go ... I kind of like the feel of them during the night (but I tend to be pretty hot natured and am always looking for the cool spots). Hope we can coordinate a campout somewhere at a halfway point in the future.

Ho'onanea,
What a gorgeous unit! I love the interior you chose. We have "paprika" and we always keep the seats covered because we're so afraid of marking them up. Your fabric will stand up much better.
We put "bumpers" along the wall in the bed to protect from the cold. They work. They are like crib bumpers for babies (fabric covered foam).
Happy camping!

More info?

I'm also looking at the 23D style...I've never seen an Intl Signature in this color scheme-it looks beautiful! What interior color is this? Is it the Mint, which Airstream says is only offered in the Serenity version? Did you special order this version (how did you come across this one)? Thank you in advance!

We have the same trailer. Check out Loblaws for the magnetic spice containers. Each one is a stainless cylinder with a clear lid and magnetic base. I think they come in sets of 4 or 6. They look great on the range hood ( I noticed you have magnets there).

Hi Wishing -- you are correct that the color of the upholstery is marketed only in the Serenity. But money talks! For a $500 change fee, my dealer was able to get the Serenity colors. The main fabric is called Soy Brown and Mint is the accent color. I believe many of Airstream's promotional photographs of the Serenity show these colors in just the opposite arrangement, which is also available. An added benefit of this upgrade is a nicer bedspread and an extra cushion under the TV. For me, it was money well spent -- no regrets.
