After the first one, we knew what we did not want in an Airstream. The narrowed the list of eligible choices. We happened to the see a repossessed Classic 34' twi-axle on the dealer's lot. I looked at the weights and knew it was more than I could scale with my truck, but we fell in love with the Hickory interior. That really narrowed the field to three choices with the 27FB having the back third the same as in our 25FB. We as settled on what we have now, a 2014 31' Classic model 30.
We have customized many aspects of the trailer with some hidden improvements and some visible.I knew I lacked the skill set to do this level of work.
I have seen quite a few wonderfully owner remodeled units. I envy their abilities. I have also seen the ones the OP started the tread over, where over confidence did not come with the necessary skill set.
To each their own. If the folks inside are happy, I am happy for them.
That is why there are 31 flavors of Ice cream at one ice cream store. Bound to be one flavor there that somebody will like.
