We visited Haydocy this past Saturday to look at new International Serenity models (we were planning to buy a 2018 23 ft. corner bed model but have since changed our minds) and they had the new Globetrotter out on display. We went inside to look around and when we came out a salesman told us that Airstream had just contacted them to tell them they had to take it out of viewing. Apparently they jumped the gun. I told him maybe he could throw a big tarp over it. Cat got out!

Looks like the previous poster's link page has been removed.

RV Pro just provided some details on the Globetrotter:

Seems to be yet another "special" like the Tommy Bahama, based on what I read here:

Patrick at Colonial *just* posted a short vid (although I can't get sound on first half).

Hi

When I saw the "designed in the UK" part of the ads my first question was - is it a wide body or a narrow body? The 8.5' wide "US" approach apparently is not very compatible with roads in Europe ....

It's "European Inspired", not designed.
Still a fat-boy.

Patrick's video (on Colonial's YouTube channel) had a notice that the trailer shown is $109K as shown. Yikes!

When I was at the factory at the first of this month, they had quite a few of them on the line or parked outside.

Only 1 model so far, 27FB.

Here's the blurb from RV Daily Report:

We saw it in person this week. We've had two Internationals and we like the modern look so I was excited to see this in person.

We did like the new "wood" colors for the cabinets. The cabinet space is used well and there seems to be more storage in the kitchen than before. The square sink was also a nice feature. The LED lights are now warm which I like much better than the cold blue tones we've always had. There is a little shelf behind the cushions that allow a place to set a drink. That doesn't show well in photos I've seen.

What I did not like at all was the flooring. The model we looked at was almost white and very textured with small holes. Dirt will get trapped and I can't imagine trying to keep it clean. Also not a huge fan of the overhead bins.

Worst feature is the MUCH SMALLER freezer. It's only half the size of our current freezer in our 25'. Missed the mark there in my opinion!

It will certainly be interesting to see how these sell!

Did you figure out what the two holes are for behind the kitchen sink?

Why in the world would they go with a smaller refrig than in the other 27 footers??? 6.7 cu. ft. vs 7.0.

Overall I'm warming up to it but still see a few goofs. The smaller refrigerator (mostly freezer) is a mistake. The striped awning is a big mistake. So much for a clean, modern esthetic. I guess the British design firm assumes Americans all like strips, plaids, and what not. Just not appropriate for what they are targeting for the interior.

If the speakers are going to be such a prominent visual element, they should step it up to something super high grade. Otherwise, keep them under the cabinets.

I did see mention that they will be rolling this decor package out to other size trailers in the future which is cool.

I am looking forward to seeing them, especially with how this upper cabinets look in person.

I liked the Sterling overall. The flooring was a cool product but I think they shot themselves in the foot with the colors they chose. That material was available in a bright, electric blue that would have been cool in the trailers.
