I really like the floorplan but I wish Airstream would offer a sofa option in place of the dinette on this one and others.

I like it. Too bad this wasn't available when I bought my 20' a year and a half ago. Will have to stop and check one of these out when I get the chance.........

Please send me the link. I have never heard of the swaying problem related to the rear door trailer. Thanks...

Airstream offered this option on the now discontinued 22' CCD International after John Irwin rebuilt his (starting here) to add this very feature. There probably would be an additional change order charge if you can get them to agree at all on a new unit order.

Nice floorplan. If any of these had been around when we ordered our 25' SS back in late '03 as an '04, I might have been convinced to go this route instead.

What are the capacities of the tanks (fresh, gray and black)? Anyone know?

Okay, here's some relevant numbers with tongue weight found at NeatAirstream's previous thread on this model.
GVWR - 6000#
UBW (curb wt) - 4821
Tongue weight - 500#

With the rear toilet I figure fresh & gray tanks are forward of the axles and the black tank is behind the axles. Put on WD gear & propane in the tanks and tongue weight would be closer to 600# before you put any gear aboard this trailer. This keeps tongue weight well north of 10% of trailer weight in almost all practical situations. That's a formula for stable towing. Now for some customers to report back!

And...

Very nice floorplan but did you notice the big "wheel box" under the table?

Strange design....

Yes -- as noted in the http://www.airforums.com/forums/f206...een-38602.html thread -- being the reason I brought up John Irwin's conversion 4 posts ago. There's just not enough space for everything + a bed in these shorter trailers. Especially with double axles.

Nobody has brought up the Classic-style window behind the door that cannot be left open with kids around. Or in a wind. I still love the full opening Classic windows on my Safari SE. I had those on my Argosy too. Circulation is so great that I'm sold in favor of this one point for any Airstream (compared to base model Safari/Hehr windows).

Maybe I'm missing something but what is so "strange" about the wheel box under the dinette? My 20' has exactly the same thing and it doesn't cause me a bit of problem.

Why would one want a full-size bed set up all day long... instead of a couch that you can turn into a bed in a few seconds? Wouldn't it be a lot more practical?
I once owned a 23-foot 1979 Safari that had a similar floor plan, with a sofa in the front. The wardrobe, the refrigerator, the range and the sink were in the reverse order than what is shown above.
I sold the trailer, but after a while I wanted to buy it back... I was never able to convince the new owner... :-(
Note: the door was also up front...

This is a two-person trailer.
