You mentioned that you wanted "modern." Does that mean you want the modern interior styling of the later models, or just that you don't want to restore a vintage trailer?

If it's the latter, I think something like this trailer in the Classifieds would be the sort of thing you want. It's basically what SSchanger above suggested. Like the newer FB models, they have a center bath and you get at least one set (instead of two) of panoramic windows. This is also about 1/2 the price of a (well-priced) used 25FB.

That said, the 25FB's combination of a dinette and couch along the side, plus the vista views, make it mighty nice...

It's the latter. I just meant non-vintage, not necessarily modern interior styling.

The problem with that particular trailer is the small window in the rear. It wouldn't be ideal for backing into an ocean view spot on the beach.

What year did AS start putting the large panoramic windows in the rear?

I think it was 2005, along with the arrival of front-bedroom floorplan units. It also started in 2004 on 16' Bambi CCDs.

There are also a handful of mid-70s Argosy 28' and 30' trailers with rear panoramics, but they're likely to need a restoration...

You are kidding rite??? The small window in the rear of the trailer for backing,I DONT THINK SO. You can not even see that window from a TV. In evidence you have never towed,if you think that's what that window in the rear of the trailer is for.
GOOD LUCK WITH WHAT EVER YOU DECIDE

I think Jakespoon wants to have a sweeping view of the ocean out of the rear of his parked trailer when it is backed into a spot.

In that case, I would avoid purchasing a TT with a rear bath. Unless of course you like to spend lots of time in it...

Malibu Rv is pricey but ideal location. there is a state site near the airport much cheaper! go for the gold. I think the airstream is perfect and 22 feet is ideal in our opinion. Happy surfing! If you park at Malibu RV look for Matt Mc. !
