The seat backs on the dinette look uncomfortably thin. Have to see the decor in person to render a meaningful opinion

Headwest. I think what youíre looking for is a Sterling. It had very clean lines but did not sell as well as we thought it would. If the Globe Trotter sells well l think you will see it in other sizes. My biggest issue with it is the small fridge.

Does anyone know what those two holes on the counter behind the sink in the new Globetrotter are for ?

I understand they are trash cans. I can only imagine the stains around the rims unless you are ultra-neat when depositing the garbage. Also, I don't think all of the "whiteness" will fare particularly well since most camping is done in the great outdoors which is prone to dust and dirt.

Thanks, you are probably right. Bad idea, sounds messy, smelly and a waste of limited valuable counter space. Taking out the trash will be more work.

I did notice that an IMPROVEMENT on the speaker placement was made. On our 25 rear bed Flying Cloud, the speakers over the dinette are mounted on the bottom of the overhead front cabinet. So the sound does not project into the trailer space very well.

I like how the speakers are face mounted on the cabinet on the GT. That should make the sound better.

I had heard rumors that the Globetrotter will have the Alde radiant heat system. Can anyone confirm? Also...be curious to know if there's a material weight savings, especially tongue weight.

Probably have to wait until the 14th on the tongue weight but looking through the pictures it has a ducted forced hot air furnace. It's the silver switch looking things that have my curiosity...

Those slots behind the sink look very much like the ice "bucket" slot on the Tommy Bahama we just purchased. They have a drain hole in the bottom that leads to the grey tank I believe. Maybe?

Little too much white: cabinets, curtains, counters and upholstery. Those lift up white cabinet doors are massive. Visually disturbing.

I do however like the wood. It's just not served well by all the white.

I'd like to see the other two Globetrotter models.

The crib style bumper pads at the head of the bed & behind the dinette is horrible..and i still havent figured out the slots behind the faucet. Maybe will look better in person?? too much white for camping.

Interesting that most seem to not like the Globetrotter decor. To us it's the only Airstream decor we might consider other than the Classic. Of course, we're not fans of a rear door front queen floor plan, so we'd have no interest unless they added a 30' front door rear twin model. That said, we love our Classic, so won't be changing, but we do like the Globetrotter decor. I guess that's 1 like vs. many dislikes, but I doubt they'll have any troubles selling them.

Thanks again for the linkóinteresting choices. Few things that caught my eye: glad they figured out itís best to put the city water inlet above the black tank flush (about to quit using mine thatís right above the city water inlet), the bath looks downright luxurious compared to our corner bath with a pedestal-type toilet & that shower looks big. I think I could dig a split bath one day when we donít need a trailer with bunks.
