As noted, no external storage except the "flawed concept"of the bumper storage.

I will note that the best bath room design on "some AS's, not mine;-( is the apposed shower/toilet that partitions off for a full width bathroom....not on this model.

I will note that the galley is midships....I don't want a galley anywhere near my bed.

It's great that they've re-intoduced the fabric on the walls and I'm sure that that contributes to the price. Mine has it, AS went away from it in "07? to cut costs while still raising the price of they're TT's (clever, but lame as it reduces the insulation drastically). NOTE: I see crinkles in some of this fabric...deal breaker.

Why no two piece shower stall? This design looks like a real issue for wiping down and future caulking issues....looks flash but nope, bad idea.

The only thing cool about this TT is the deck (In the marine business we call this Teak and Holly....mine will need recovering next year and I'll do this to mine except in reverse ... thick Holly and thin Teak (due to the cost and the light interior beige decor).

And really, the same old lousy, cheap skylight.....check mine out on my post "Goodbye Skylight, Hello Hatch)

It's obvious to me. The storage and typical Airstream issues are NOT a problem with this trailer...the owner's butler makes sure of that!

This trailer is missing the improvements that I believe are also missing in current new Airstream trailers:

1. A floor that won't rot.
2. Ducted or quiet AC.
3. Disc brakes.
4. Cold fridge when it is hot outside.

All that money, and they give you a fifty cent sink stopper with no chain to tug it out of the water.....

Well I looked at the "Sterling" - with ill disguised horror. There's "avant garde" and then there's baby poop yellow!

Both are definitely for a "niche within a niche" market.

This just screams status symbol, but it is more tasteful than the Sterling.
