My only issues with this, and the 25' FB are lack of storage and you can't see the T.V. from the sofa.

I THOUGHT the 25 FB SE was perfect!

LOVE the 27 - hope you really enjoy it too. The "lobster bowl" sink is big enough to get a large pan or platter in - something you cannot do with the two smaller sinks. Just get a drain rack to put next to it.

The wardrobe on the 25 is smallish... Looks like the 27 has a BIG one, and a more generous pantry.

Congrats on your new one.

Paula

Thanks for the good thoughts. We'd been looking since last Nov...glad we waited a year to make the purchase. We almost went with the 25 FB last fall but the extra couple of feet in the 27 make a nice difference. The wardrobe is much wider in the 27. The bathroom also has a bit more room. It's just two of us and our black lab so the 27will be perfect for us. As for storage, we're coming out of a 10 yr old Chateau with one small storage/cargo box on the outside so I have no complaints on the 27FB. My awning lights, extension cord, "shore" power cord, and related electrical stuff will go in the front exterior access storage area behind the tanks, which is also accessable from under the bed, and my outside plumbing supplies will go in the rear bumper storage area, a nice feature in that it doesn't share common space with the interior cabin, which most other trailers do. This 27FB is an 07 of course and from doing our homework and shopping all the AS dealers within a 100 mile radius from us we managed to transact a very nice deal as well. Our travels take us from DFW to Pinehurst NC regularly along with excursions around Texas and we're looking forward to hitting the road with the new one!

Congrats Brow324 -- I'm sure y'all will enjoy it greatly! Not spoofing you there -- I grew up in San Antonio back before all the furriners moved in during the late 70s oil & tech boom. I'll see what I can do to get the Safari 27' FB added to the model list in the profile section.

Brow324? Is the 27' FB a Special Edition model only? Airstream's website doesn't have anything about it. (of course! They update it so infrequently.)

[on edit: Answered my own question. Safari 27' FB SE is the only model I see at http://www.colonialairstream.com/newinventory.html]

Congratulations!!! This is the trailer we are lusting after......when we saw this one we said "this is it". Unfortunately, we didn't think our TV was up to the task so settled on a "Vintage" 27' instead. Since this is our first trailer, we have promised ourselves that if we really love Airstreaming we will treat ourselves to the 27 FB someday.......I know you will find it perfect in everyway......pj

One item that seems new to the 27 FB, or perhaps it is just new for 2007, is the apparently solid pantry and pantry racks. Our 2006 FB has wire pantry racks and no backing so cans and especially small items can move around and sometimes thru the wire enclosure. Sure wish we could swap our pantry for the one that I see in the pics.

One "solution" we've found helpful is to line the wire rack with the rubbery shelf liner and attach the liner with small alligator paper clips. This prevents small items from falling thru and provides a sticky surface that holds things in place while going down the road.

Congrats on your 27' FB. We bought a 25' FB earlier this year. If we were deciding now, it would be a tough choice.

In answer to Canoe Stream's question: The one we purchased is a Safari LS Special Edition. BTW: we did not get the Airstream TV. We already have a little TV that works well but hardly ever use it anyway. My work is in the advertising business, which has me producing and watching TV commercials all the time, so we like to escape that element of the world when we get out on the road and away from the city. A few favorite CD's and a banjo to pick on seems to fill the gaps between listening to the wind, and watching the trees grow.

Well... We "camped out" in the driveway last weekend to get acquanted with our new 27 FB before we make our first trip with it to NC...we'll cover almost 3000 miles so thought it might be a good idea to test all the systems beforehand. And so far...all systems are "go". BTW: The queen size bed is a nice change from the old bed we had, which was a double, and accessable from only one side (being against a wall). It's very comfortable too. Plus there is a noticable quietness in the A/S that our old fiberglass trailer didn't have.
