What kind of changes? Minor or major?

Flooring vs. windows?

Welcome home John.

John,
I've always loved the way the 31's and 34's look. Majestic on the road, parked in the campground. Thanks for the pic. Welcome home, you had a few long hauls during your C to C eh-
Stream Safe,
Bob U-

Beauty.
How'd you sneak a camera past security?

I wanted the 31, DW wanted the 34
We compromised on the 30 S/O

That, my Airstream friends, is A LOT of aluminum behind the tow rig. SWEET, like candy! Something cool about that "3 axle look."

Thanks for acquiring that photo, hope your EAST/WEST trip was fun and safe...

I don't think it makes any difference as far as the $500 change fee is concerned but you also have the extra labor and parts fee attached to whatever else you want added or deleted. At least this is the way it was explained to me.
I just had minor changes to my trailer that were out of the norm. The carpet deleted and replaced with all vinyl flooring and an extra light outside installed over the entrance door with a seperate switch for it inside.
I did ask for flag pole boxes and different wheels and tires but those are not considered changes at the plant level and would have to be addressed at the service and parts dept. after the build or with the dealership. So I didn't get those extras and will wait till I'm at Jackson Center someday and maybe get those extras then.
Otherwise, the trailer options listed for my model trailer all worked for me and with those I included the boondocker pkg, pantry microwave and the twin bed set up.
I understand that you can have different color Corian counter tops put in that are not the standard colors. We thought about it for a while but decided that the sandstone color that comes with our model works well with the other colors they picked for the valances, flooring, bedding so we stayed with it.

Good to be back West - so nervous I was going to hit some nasty hail in the mid west - really scary weather out there! Next big trip will be five days at Malibu RV park - looking forward after the long C-C tow a short "San Diego - Malibu" trip overlooking the beach for a few days. :-)

it's not a pan am.

doesn't look like a pan am, not if one LOOKS closely.

my understanding is the PANam has been panned 4 now.

a/s is doing a production RUN of 25 of these normal classic 34 footers.

it's the typical classic limited and traditional layout,

they've made for the last 4-5 years.

again they're planning to build 25 of these,

2-3 are on the assembly line right now.

so it's great to see they haven't abandoned the 34 (many of us knew we'd see them again)

but it's a shame they didn't take the opportunity to TWEAK the interior design, materials or floor plan.

the 1 in the o.p. is a 50 amp unit with 2 air conditioners.

cheers

34's

Mouse fur - only on the Flying Clouds. Vinyl interior is found on the classics. Even the Classics have deleted the vinyl around the stove area - grease and heat are the enemy of vinyl.

The aluminum of the CCD looks nice, but in a bedroom you might want vinyl or mouse fur at least up to the bottom of the windows. It gets COLD when your butt hits the aluminum in December.

the 34s have had naked aluminum in the galley/behind the stove and sink and microwave for 6 years or so.

my 05 is done that way.

the new ones STILL have mouse fur (OZITE) on the walls in the bedroom and living area.

it's not obvious because it's behind LOTS of curtains and window treatments...

but it's there, i watched them hang FUR in a 34 monday.

the ceilings ((and upper walls/around the curve)) are foam backed vinyl EXACTLY as done for 10+ years.

these are NOT new interior treatments.

there are some minor changes,

like NOT using marinco brand external plugs and no disc brakes and new floor vinyl...

cheers

Would it be possible to order a 34' with CCD interior, or something other than Classic? Ugh.

Also, why would they move away from disc brakes?

disk brakes

What...they are not using disk brakes on that new 34'?? Golly, talking about saving some bucks..

I would also have to agree that deleting the Marinco plug is a bad idea as this item is truly a marine grade fixture, will last along time.

Guess they gotta save some bucks somewhere.

they dc'd disc brakes on the ASSEMBLY line last year.

the service center STILL installs discs as an AFTER production upgrade.

they are using the dexter parts for these upgrades IN the service center.

they are STILL using 30 amp and 50 amp twist lock weather proof connections...

just a different brand, i 4got the name, sorta a euro, EYEtalian sorta word...

the plug cover/enclosure is smoother, has a more modern look, but it's the same connection style.

cheers
