Patrick: I've been told that the 2016 classic will have laminate cherry wood cabinet doors, as opposed to solid wood cabinet doors. Is that correct?

That is not correct. The side panels of the cabinets with have cherry laminate instead of cherry veneer. There were production challenges with the veneer and some inconsistencies. The laminate looks fabulous.

I have a question you might be able to answer: My 2016 comes in Mid-June and I ordered the Solar Package. Do you know how many watts 'EACH' panel is?

Thank you!
Each panel is 50W.

Really like the new 26U, just wish it was a front bedroom unit. Any possibilities?

The 26U is a nice addition and seems perfect for that size Airstream.

The hump STAYS??? That's the opposite of what Tim Maxwell told me at the Tampa show a few months back.

No 2016 Classic for us!

So the cabinets in the 2015 Classic WERE NOT solid cherry as was stated before? They were veneer?

And for 2016 the FACES of the cabinets will not be solid cherry, but veneer (as before, even though we were told otherwise), and the rest of the cabinetry will be a fake wood plastic laminate???!!!?!!?!??

I hope the cost has been reduced since they are replacing wood with a cheap laminate...

I believe you are misreading the statement and the cabinet fronts and doors remain solid cherry. Since I heard that it was the large flat veneer panels like the side of the fridge and the bathroom walls that were delaying production when we visited Tha factory a couple of months ago I suspect that only those panels are changing to laminate.

Laminate sure costs a lot less than real wood. More profit per unit as the prices will only go up. However, plastic does not split like real wood can if not properly cared for.

We put three five gallon buckets of water in the coach while stored under roof here in the Phoenix area to keep some humidity level inside when temperatures stay above 100 for weeks on end. We have no issues with all the real Hickory in our 2014 Classic.

Does anyone know what changes they have made in the 2016 classic compared to the 2015?

Thanks
Doug
