Hi

I think I need to see one to really comment on the interior. The pictures often are not a good way to really get the feel of one of these new designs. It is *different* than the other AS interiors. I'd say that is a very good thing by its self. It will appeal to a sub set of people out looking for trailers.

So, UK (interior) designed, but not ok for UK roads. No Alde system. Sort of "euro" but not really.

Bob

Euro-ish?

Globtrotter

I have the new brochure on the Globetrotter. I like the Corian and interior color selections. The wrap around cushions in the galley/lounge area are nice touch and the woven vinyl floor. I like the new stove also.
But I still do not like that whole lounge set up for watching TV or socializing; compared with the 26U or 28' thru 30' separate lounge/dinning arrangements. Not for us at $100K plus!

I wonder if they will unveil that style interior in a 25 foot trailer or different sizes. We like the new interior but are looking for a 25 foot.

The bolster along the back wall behind the dinette is interesting. Seems to match the one they put around the bed up front. Looks like they are supporting the dinette table with a single leg, perhaps like in the Classic, which enabled them to place that bolster there. Still wondering about the value of that bolster when the table is up.

Saw this trailer over the weekend. I agree that the 26U has a more comfortable seating area but to be fair this trailer is better than the dinette setup in the 25/27 group for lounging and tv watching. The bolster isnít as thick and plush as the 26. It sure looks and feels nice in person. Itís going to be hard to keep clean though!

Hi

That bolster was something that really was an issue for us in the 26 layout. I have been accused of being a bit "full sized" ....

Will have to see- especially the "multi-award winning ...upholstery". I don't care for the stark white/dark cabinet contrast either, but different strokes.
I think the advertising is interesting- a "European concept" for an iconic American product. What demographic....???

They have been selling airstreams overseas now for several years. The body and shells the same but the Interiors are done with a European Concept in mind.

Usually European concept conjures up a sleeker streamlined semi modern touch at least that's how those Airstream are styled over there currently.

I also agree that the excessive white seems to be a bit of a bare slate. However having said that I could see where the right person with the right pops of color could make that a white background a very nice neutral.

It will be there it will be nice to see the first one all dolled up.

If going "Euro-ish" I wish they had put in the galley the spice-rack-cubbies with the roll down hold-er-in-er thingies (look like OceanAir shades) like they put in some of the Euro-models. Also the counter tops with the grooves to let water drain back into the sink would be nice.

I like white in general to brighten interiors (as opposed to the old ones that felt like dark caves) but think they overdid it just a bit.
Really like the curved "walnut" lower cabinets.
Sink looks too shallow for serious dish washing.
Whatever the cubbies are behind the sink, the location seems impractical.

Has anyone heard if the Globetrotter is going to be offered in the other lengths and possibly replace the Internationals?
