Just one more thing for RV Consumers Group to bash Airstreams with.
I don't think the window over the water heater is new thing.

Look at the third picture of this 1996 Excella and you will find a water heater directly under a rear window.

The CCD is a bit to radical to me, although I generally like the 28' layout. Wonder why the bed is not oriented across the trailer like the Safari. Seems like that would free up a few inches of space elsewhere.

I looked at the newest 25' Safari and really liked the interior which is a pretty much a Chinese copy of the interior of my International AS.

John, I felt the same way, but it is starting to grow on me. I'm not about to go out and get one by any means, but it's getting softer on the old eyes now that I've had time to digest them a bit.

Still love that Classic, but need a larger bank account and a more powerful tow vehicle. For now Bambi does us just fine though.

It's nice to have dreams.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

2004 Models brochures or info

Thanks alot for all the info about the new 2004 models, both the Safari and CCD. I am still searching for the right one in that I have concluded the 25' would be best for me, but still hunting for more info on the new models before going any further. Any suggestions to find this stuff?
