We typically will not close a thread even though the topic is redundant. We have a lot of new faces here and in many cases we get a new set of responses from folks on the frequently asked questions and topics.

My own experience with the search feature with the forum software used is less than ideal and sometimes in all honesty it's just easier to ask the question again. Those who see the repetitive question can just ignore the thread. It's that easy.

OMG, can you be any more 'old school' about not wanting to have this discussion again? Newbies love to access this information and may not know that there are already answers to this. Are you people complaining, so wrapped up in this website that it's your news, unwilling to visit any repeat question? It's supposed to be a informational guide and the ones asking questions are NEW, so they may not know to query threads. Lighten up please and be welcoming, not chastising! We were all there once!

Thank you ASaddiction! I couldn't agree with you more.

BTW - We have a front bedroom and we love the view we get.

We've had both and it didn't matter either way. My only complaint would be that the FB was a 25' and the bed was sideways and that didn't work well for us. Our preference is front door rear bed only because of where we stay in the summer, only a front door will work and it's more convenient where we store our trailer. Sleeping didn't matter either way front or rear. Go with the layout you like and don't worry about bed location. Most importantly, have fun with your trailer and family.

Public versus Private Campgrounds.
That seems to be a big variable in Front versus Rear Bedroom.
If a person plans to spend the majority of time in Private campgrounds where spaces are close to each other and often back to back, then the rear bedroom might be preferred. You would see all the traffic walking in the street and like to see who is walking by as the social nature of Private long term campgrounds offer. This assume that there might also be a side spot to park the Tow vehicle to also improve the view out the front. Plus you would not be looking at the back of the other RV parks directly behind. Plus it would tend to be a bit quieter for sleeping
If a person plans to spend most of the time in public, state/national parks/forests where backing in often means backing up to river, lake or other amazing scenic view, then Front Bedroom might make sense.
I think it probably depends heavily on how a person plans to use their Airstream.
It is funny how many people complain about this thread and yet it has one of the most replies in one day, so it is still very much a hot topic on people's mind.

We had a FC 19 which was a rear bed of course and never thought to measure our shoulder width. In the rear twin bed we were shoulder to shoulder and almost touching the wall on each side not good for us if it is hot. The front queen in the 23 fb is perfect and one person doesn't have to crawl over the other. We wanted to stay small so I don't know the size of the bed in a rear bed larger model.

There are so many variations over time, these 'generalities' often do not hold. My 2004 22 foot Safari has a front curbside door with a front bed. The large counter space on the galley is the most important feature to us, and if we want to look at the scenery, we go sit in chairs outside the unit We keep silver bubble reflector material continuously in the windows (Southwestern US), only pulling this when we really want airflow or a view from some part of the unit.

Just my opinion.


Superat stultitia.
I agree. I have been around a while and have yet to stumble into this one. There are no bad questions.

Cheers!

Many older state park and national park campgrounds are all the same basic plan: a big one-way circle with back-in sites. In the middle of the circle are the restrooms, laundry, dumpsters, volley-ball court, etc. That is what you will see out of your front window (plus your tow vehicle and propane tanks). Views of the mountains, water, canyon, whatever are usually facing outwards from the circle, to the rear.

This is one of the reasons we picked a 27' front bedroom. We wanted the daytime/dining/social area to have the view from those great wraparound and side windows while we ate or entertained. The 27' FB has a nice "island queen", and is a nice bedroom - but we are only in there to sleep at night, read a book, take a nap, or watch the 2nd flat-screen TV (which usually ends up in a nap). It doesn't bother me that the view from the front window behind our heads is the propane tanks and rear of the truck, as my eyes are usually closed.

The other thing we love about the 27FB is the layout. The whole rear half of the trailer is the "social" area, including the galley. We've had up to 8 people in there, and because of the couch and dinette configuration, no one had to sit with their back to the others. It has two room dividers, so you can take the bathroom and shower and divide them off to be either part of the social area or the private bedroom area, depending on needs and wants. We've just come back from our 5th two week cross-country vacation in ours, and enjoy it more each trip. Just my experience and opinions...

Enjoy whatever Airstream you get!

We really (!!!!) enjoy spending time at Top Of Georgia, backed up against the big bubbling creek - going to sleep in our rear bedroom, windows open, llistening to the water. And even listening to the resident bear (we named it Buford) snuffle around . . . no, really!! I don't know how to include pictures, I'd love to show them to y'all.

Front Bedroom, Please!

We are so pleased with our Front Bedroom! We both work, which means we'll be spending time (all day) in the living area. We have a 25FB (wish it were longer) and really enjoy the huge views out of all the windows in the rear living area. I definitely don't want to look at our truck/other campers all day while working. Searching for a bigger AS is frustrating because our biggest want is front bedroom and open rear windows. Good luck!

Interior layout changes with regard to front vs. rear bedroom, along with outside storage capability. I don't like that storage door behind the propane tanks at the front.

The bathroom in the rear twin 25 and 30 is WAY more preferable for us than any 27 ever built. Our 30, and our previous 25 rear bed have 4 storage compartments outside.

We're rear bedroom folk, yessireeeee. Don't like sleeping up against the propane tanks, would have nightmares of head exploding..... (just kidding!)

Really not interested in bed being up against/near campground roads.

Really like the entry door closer to the truck, at front of trailer.

If I want to see the great outdoors, I go out and look at it. Only time we're spending a lot of time in the trailer is if it's raining, cold, or night time. So what's up with the view thing anyway?

And just for kicks, to the original poster, I'm ok with a new thread coming up talking about things that have already been discussed, I mean, what's the big deal anyway? People like to talk, and read, and converse, and discuss, and engage....well, most people
