Shorter and wider

Someone recently told me that the wide-body Airstreams came out starting in 1993. I thought it was later than that, so I did some looking in the document archives. The first mention of a wide-body 34' is in 1995. What's interesting, though, is that the 34' coaches prior to 1995 were 35' 1" long, whereas the wide-body versions are 34' 10" long. Looks like they got 3" shorter and 6" wider.

Hmmm, I'm getting shorter and wider. Guess I'll fit nicely in an Airstream.
