Metric Airstream

A 32' unit is not really 32'. It is 32' 9.5". Which is 393.5" or 10 m.

Some other conversions:
29' is 29' 2", or 350" or 8.9 m

A 25' unit is really 25' 11" or 311" or 7.9 m

There are several 34' sizes, 34' 7", 35' 2" (10.5m and 10.7m respectively)

Different years/models were different from this.

Weight: with mine, dry/gross 6500/8300 lbs is 2.95/3.76 tons respectively (Metric tons of course).

The difference between earlier and '96+ bodies width is 2.43m and 2.59m or 15cm. So in a 10m unit, the total area gained is 1.5m^2.

Sizes have been nominal probably since the very beginning. The current 30' Classic and 31' Classic are exactly the same length (according to the Airstream Website).

And here I thought all this time it took 26' to park my 25' Sovereign, when actually I could get by on less than 8 meters!

Interestingly, the modern "classic" 25' lost a couple of inches compared to the one in my old brochure, just to make things more confusing.
