You guys remind me....I won't have my cushy leather recliner from my family room in my 16' BAMBI! "Whatever will I do? How will I relax?" Let's see...outdoors, I can kick back on my outdoor recliner, or, indoors, I can fluff up a bunch of pillows and watch a movie on the bed,...of couse, wearing silk PJs, and with a bit of cognac in my hand. OK, guys, don't get mad! I'm only jesting! However, I'll do just that! I can take some finery, Waterford Crystal to enjoy my wine or cognac. There's limited space in my itty bitty 16' BAMBI, so I'll manage to enjoy the great outdoors while traveling, and look forward to comforts of home later. BTW, as a 70+ lil' ol' lady, my joints may ache, but, I'm still gonna have fun in my Bambino! See you on the road! HAPPY TRAILS, YA'LL! Evelyn.

I love your attitude, Evelyn!! I hope to see you on the road sometime...we live in AZ and this July will be traveling between Phx and B.C., via Boise & Seattle area. I'll enjoy a glass of wine with you if we ever meet!

Odd indeed. I bought my 2015 Cloud specifically because the dealer had one in stock with the recliners. One of my better decisions. Extremely comfortable and like adding another room to the trailer.

Recliner

I have a 2015 25ft and looking at putting in recliners. Can someone tell me what recliner to look at and what does it take to move the dinette set and install them. I am 6' 2"

Recliners

On those rainy days its nice to have a comfy place to kick back watch TV or nap. An AS sofa is not comfy at all, unless your the only one on it. The dog thinks between my legs on the recliner is her spot she can't understand where
her spot has gone without the recliner area she just looks at me and scratches at my leg until her spot appears.

danes7 I have two la z boys Im' 6'1/2" we bought some of the smaller recliners with what they call wall a way feature you need about 3 1/2" to 4" behind recliners and they extend a good bit forward if you have a lounge along the wall they may not fit without mod. to the lounge. Measure carefully and check to be sure what AS has put under dinette and lounge. Take a trip to La z Boy dealer with a tape measure check how far they extend fully reclined. I also built some corner storage cabinets along the walls on both sides of the recliners gives me a place to put a drink and the remote also made some tables that fold away when not needed. If you have the lounge along the wall you may be able to remove one dinette seat and table and put in one recliner. Good luck Rand

Your dog must be bigger than ours. We tuck pillows back against the rear wall/windows and stretch our legs out on the sofa or bench. The dog jumps up and sleeps between my legs, regardless of which side I inhabit. I am usually in that position for a couple of hours and it is not uncomfortable. Sure, recliners would be more comfortable but there are other trade-offs. On balance, we will leave our floor plan as Airstream designed it. If the trailer were bigger, with room to entertain/dine and have two recliners, I could endorse that.

Comfy outdoor furniture is also quite in order, of course!

For us, having comfy outdoor furniture doesn't reduce the desire to have really comfy indoor furniture, as well!

We just like to do what we can to make our surroundings as comfortable as we can, that's all. This may not be everyone's interest, though.

Really hard core people would put a rain suit on and still sit outside. I've actually done that. Really stupid! Part of camping is putting yourself out of your comfort zone, the other is being able to totally relax, whatever that takes. Jim

Dare if you wish; that's bold!

And, of course, what is of the majority, or the minority means absolutely nothing to one's individual wishes. I'm rarely in step with the majority, anyway, which is really fine by me.

I'm sure that it is a small minority of Airstream owners who actually see to it to get comfortable recliners in their Airstreams. That said, I'm sure there is a sizably larger group of Airstreamers who would be absolutely delighted to have comfy recliners in place of the bench sofa. They just haven't/can't/won't do what needs to be done to make the change. And that's ok with me too. I'm only concerned with how my Airstream is set up.

Evelyn... it sounds like you're a perfectly happy camper and that's exactly how you should be. Enjoy your time in that cute little Bambino!

No Recliners? Yikes!

Well, I am happy about the fact I have my two. And, I may even give up one to have a different bench which would hold two adults where one recliner sits. But, no firm plans as of yet.

The dinette is the next big item to change, maybe make an "L" shaped dinette or something like on the Panamerica.

While Airstream may not offer the recliners as an option, if one wants a delete of the sofa, then purchase one's own recliners, the price may not be much different than if one opts for the recliners from the factory. In fact, my guess is a recliner purchased properly after delivery may be more comfortable than the current factory offering.

It is an easy conversion with the 25 Rear Bed, not so with the 25 Front Bed because the furnace is in the way. Many with 25 Front Bed have installed one recliner on the curb side and left the bench seat on the street side, modifying the table to fit.

Here's our 25 RB at Jackson Center just after the recliner installation.

Minority, majority??? If we were not independent individuals, we would not be campers, travelers, 'one of a kind', right? I say..."March to our own drum and smile as you do it"! Whatever makes us happy...as long as no one else is made unhappy in the process"! HAPPY TRAILS, YA'LL!
