Features

Quote:
There were also some features that suprised me such as a remote battery disconnect relay, a marine-grade monitor system for tanks, LPG, and voltage, lots of interior lighting, and
a remote controlled Fantastic Fan in the bedroom.
These are standard on the International (AS and CCD) series.

I had a non-suicide door on my old Scamp. With the awning up, I had to bungee the door to the awning arm to keep the wind from blowing it. I'll take the suicide door in preference to that.

My AS has a fabric bottle cover. I wonder whether that was what blew off of the 28'.

Here's a picture of the dinette window and door overlap that so many have pointed out. As I think about it more, it really is too bad it was designed this way...if you want to have a window open, you'll probably also want the screen door open at the same time.

Much worse yet, it is an invitation to a shattered window. How many times have I had my hands full with the cat or other things and the wind yanked the door away from me. I would be a little bit afraid to ever open that window.

Strange,

What's with the TV outlets under the dining table?? Looks "white boxy" designed to me.

Guess I need to go look at one in person and then go hug my 74. The reason I wouldn't spend 50k on it? I'm not a millionaire and even if I was I am cheap.

BTW, I thought all Airstreams had suicide doors? (except mh's)

Chas

Doc, the operable window over the water heater is a good catch! A Fantastic Vent brings a lot of air in through the windows when it's set on the Out position. While carbon monoxide usually disperses in air pretty well, when it's hot in exhaust, it rises straight up in a no wind condition. Especially if air is also being sucked into that window by a vent.

Just one more thing for RV Consumers Group to bash Airstreams with.

I believe that is because the dinette is really the only place to put a TV and see it from the L-shaped couch. This is a good argument for a flat-panel TV on a swing-away mount.

I see that they have incorporated exactly the same spice rack that I have in my International AS. The first thing that the new owner will find out is that they will be picking up all of the bottles after each tow.

Just about my first modification was to put sliding Lexan doors on my spice cabinet. I no longer have a problem.

RoadKingMoe--It still concerns me a little, too, re: the possibility for CO as well as the heat and fumes.

Chas--Good catch with the "white boxes" under the table. I didn't notice them before. It looks like the loop for the satellite dish box is also there. Where would it go?

Pashka is correct. I don't have a picture of it, but there was TV holder on the wall in between the couch and the galley. The dealer told us that a plasma TV (Sharp Aquos) was going to soon be an option for that space.

I saw a just finished 28 at the factory. It had a small Sharp LCD TV facing the front couch, but on a mount that could be swung around to be viewed from the rear. All the cables from the TV were bundled together with cable ties and it looked a bit tacky. A length of corrugated split wire loom would clean it up nicely.

The interior was "lemon grass" vs halloween orange. Sort of a medium olive drab color as I recall.

Who said the 70s were dead....

Actually, the CCDs are kind of growing on me....truth be told though, if I had the means, the Classic is for me the way I'd like to be some day.

Silvertwinkie -

We love the classic exteriors and floorplans but the finishes seem dated. So we're thinking:

A - a new safari or CCD

- or -

B - a used classic and a refurbish job
