We also have a new Airstream. The interiors are exceptionally well designed. My experience designing homes has taught me to keep the palette of materials to a minimum. Airstream has done this well. Let the decorating happen with useful and well designed accessories, rugs, towels and such. Find a color scheme for these items and stick to it all the way through. Don't put holes in the walls if you can help it, you may change you mind later.

We have just gotten a 2012 27' International. Love the clean, sleek interior. However, being an interior designer I feel it needs a little personalization and warmth. We are in the middle of modifying the dinette so we have the option of converting it into a "U" shaped sofa. We are also planning to add a nice cornice with a warm textured fabric over the window areas, some nice textured pillows and an upholstered piece at the head of the bed where our pillows rest. Nice thing about these trailers is they have such a nice neutral palette and all the basics are in place. You can get by with just adding pillows, a throw, and some nice fabrics on the bed. Let me know if you come up with some other ideas!

I have a 28' Intl CCD -- just not into the FB -- and have done quite a bit of redecorating. The Ultra Leather looks really nice -- but the "stock" soft goods are pretty cheesy... Here are some photos of the redo. (I have a great decorator...) Am considering doing FLOR carpet -- a 3 inch border in a silver/blue color with a gray parquet pattern. All the shiny aluminum looks great but it can use some softening up. Enjoy your new trailer!

Command Hooks and aluminum walls - a match made in heaven!

We have an '08 27'FB and have lived it in extensively for the last 2 years. We find the dinette and side bench seat not that comfortable and plan on removing it all and placing two flexsteel type chairs in the back and putting a small storage cabinet under the tv along the wall next to the refer. Just need to figure how to cover the forced air furnace. Plan on doing that this summer and posting the project!

Command hooks (and the other command products) and any smooth wall, as well. If you have a Classic, that mouse fur does have another purpose......the hook side of Velcro holds to it quite well.

I agree with the command hooks with aluminum walls. Outside of getting rid of that ridiculous bedspread and getting a sensus mattress topper we are pretty much stock. I'm open for some interesting ideas tho.

These new Airstreams are well done inside. The aluminum interiors give a feeling of spaciousness similar to mirrors, the pano windows at either end and large side windows remove any sense of enclosure. A few favorite and useful accessories coordinated in your colors, and a scenic setting to camp should finish it nicely.

Ours is a rear bed model which we like very much, and spend a lot of time in it as you do. I wish there had been a recliner option like the newer 30' models, perfect for a camper for two in the 25's. We will probably be doing a conversion as well, with a narrow drop-down table between. I think we will have to deal with the converter as the furnace is behind the sink. Keep all of us posted.

I look forward to seeing what you do, that is pretty much exactly what I envision for our '12 27FB. My quandary on that is what us use for sit down dinners if the dinette is gone.

We were pretty happy with our stock 2012 27FB International, other than giving the dealer the bedspread and "stuff" pillows on day one and using our own pillows and quilt.

I did get a bunch of those 3M adhesive hooks and put a 12" analog clock with an aluminum bezel on the wall above the front TV and the same clock on the wall in the bedroom.

I don't see myself ever putting a hole in any interior wall.

As far as exterior we added a fold down satellite dish sending HD Direct TV signals to both TVs.

Now that I'm thinking about it. We have to do something with the mini blinds at the head of the bed, especially the hold down bracket. With the mattress topper and the way I toss and turn I don't see this lasting long. Any suggestions?

Do away with the mini blinds and get day/night accordion style blinds?
