As many threads do drift to another subject, I will try to keep it on track. First, if I had my 27FB from 2009, I might wait for the Classic. In joking with my dealer, once the 2015 Serenity arrived, I suggested we begin discussions on trading for the Classic when it is available. LOLi

There are many trim changes which can be made to bring the Serenity into more of the "motorhome" look of the Classics interior and some of these I will be doing in mine. The window shades can have a nice valence which covers three sides so as to prevent anyone from seeing in at the edges of the shades at nighttime.

As to the ducted A/C, it is nice, but not a reason to trade. I am not a " camper" but simply enjoy having my own "room, kitchen, and bed" when I travel. And the Airstream does this better than any other trailer IMO, and for what want to do during my travels.

The temperature inside the trailer can be as high as 80 degrees and comfortable if humidity is low as well. A supplemental fan makes a big difference.

I guess I can posts some of the pictures, however I don't think the factory has released the info yet. After studying the info they sent, I'm glad I waited for the redesign of the 2015. I rather like it.

Very nice trailer! I went inside the number 1 model at the Gillette rally. Beautiful trailer. The ducted air was so nice and quiet!
I also love the panoramic windows in the bedroom.

We have spent four days and nights in our 2015. The ducted air is a dramatic improvement...not only in significant noise reduction but alao in evening out the temperature within the trailer. It is well worth your considetation!!!

Cherry stain on some wood like alder, not cherry wood.

Hickory cabinets in prior year Classics had solid Hickory, not a stain.

The bathroom layout and wardrobe look a little different in the 2015. The dinette booth is shifted more toward the front of the trailer and the "credenza" is gone.
I guess the wardrobe had to be made larger to make up for the loss of cabinet space due to the panoramic rear window.
I can't wait to walk through a new Classic.

Either way, it is beautiful, never been a fan of the hickory look. Every one has different tastes in what they like.

I like the lighter colors, they make the trailer feel larger inside. Not too light, though, or else between the light colors and white curtains, you feel like you are inside a coffin. I'm sure the Classic will be available with some lighter colored stuff inside, that may take away the darkness of the cherry wood.

They made the new Classic brighter and more airy by adding windows and removing cabinets-

Ducted Air

"We like hot summer camping if we have access to swimming - just stay in water!!



And escape back to trailer for food - naps - and sleeping"

Well Pharmgeek. just do what I do, fill the shower stall and let it overfill into the floor. You can wade around in the trailer and not even have to walk to the pool!

I did that once while (re)calibrating the micropulse tank indicators. Had the garden hose in the shower then went outside to turn it on full blast to fill the gray take. Came back in to find the hose whipped out of the shower and was pouring water in the hallway.

Seems to have wandered well off topic.
I'd like to hear from others that now have 2015s with ducted air ...
