Questions about special orders

When you order a new Classic 30 foot Airstream, can you have them put a washer & dryer hookup in the closet next to the shower? Can you also have them put a cabinet with a counter where the propane stove is? Have any of you done this? Those two changes could make this my choice. The only other thing that is disappointing to me is there isn't a front bedroom option. I would love to be able to back into a site and see the waterfront while sitting at the table or sofa. I only saw that layout in the Eddie Bauer model.

No. Airstream will not do custom work like this.

Not sure this is entirely true. They likely will not do it on the production line, but they may do it at the Jackson Center repair bay before delivering the trailer. But you will pay their hourly rate for it.

I doubt Airstream would do this type of work even in the repair facility after the trailer came off the line. Of course what this individual should have done to begin with is call Airstream and talk to them about the changes/additions he wants. After all Airstream is the very best source for this information - not Air Forums which has nothing to do with Airstream.

Seeing some of the custom work they were doing when I was there I suspect they will do just about anything for the right amount of money. As said Airstream is the place to ask, no here.

Call Airstream Adventures NW in WA. They have been doing customization work on trailers bought through them.

I have installed a Vesta dishwasher in my new Classic, very slick and works beautifully, but the tradeoff is a reduction in closet space. There is virtually no place for a washer/dryer, unless you demolished something else. If you removed the shower, maybe. The performance of RV washer/dryer combos is pretty pitiful. They wash, they dry in the same apparatus. You can get (maybe) one bath towel at a time.

So now that I know I can't wish for a washer & dryer in an Airstream, how do you deal with laundry while traveling? The few times I've used a laundromat the machines weren't kind to your clothes. Do most RV parks have a decent laundromat available for use? It seems like you would have to wash you clothes once a week at least because you can't bring many with you. I over plan and over prepare so be patient with me. I have so many things I wonder about.

I've seen a 30BH where the rear beds were removed and replaced with a combo laundry and office area. It was post build custom work.

Most RV parks and some public parks have laundromats. They vary from excellent to ho-hum. Buy a lot of quick-drying travel clothes that you can dry on the line, keep several rolls of quarters on hand, and be prepared to get your clothes a little battered in the wash. This is camping, don't sweat it. (Or don't sweat!)

I have a dish washer in my home. Have used it one time. It took an hour and used a ton of water to do what I do in 5 minutes. Never used it again. I certainly use my washer and dryer at home but all the small trailer sized models I have seen have also been fairly useless. They are too small to be used economically in my opinion

On a different mod - I emailed Chris Burch to see if they could change my emergency exit window in my 27FB to another door. They can't.

Can anyone?

Using that window in an emergency would not work. Do I throw my bloodhound out the window first? Do you poke your head through and slide out to break your neck when you hit the ground? Honestly - it's a scary proposition.

Since AS wouldn't do it, I'd certainly welcome other thoughts.

The entire interior of our AS is done to our specifications - which also meant some window placement changes. Shell is a 2008 Classic ordered from Jackson Center - all other similarities stop as you enter the door. We'll never buy another as 7 years of use has confirmed for us that we have exactly what we need in a trailer. We used Timeless Travel Trailers.
Yes, we also have an Interstate. Different use, different purposes. They make a very happy couple.
