Flying Cloud still comes with a selection of decors, including light countertops. Here's info from the Airstream site.

We have never ended up using the bedspreads that came with our Airstreams. It is not that we didn't care for the fabric patterns. We found them way too heavy to use. By heavy I mean they weighed too much to be comfortable.

We replaced them with comforters. We have always chosen dark patterns because that is our preference. It would be just as easy to choose something bright and colorful.

Interesting, Brian. Goes to show different preferences. We still use our original bedspread and like it, especially in winter months. It is fitted to the bed and holds a comforter under it in place and the cold air out, we have slept in very cool temperatures with this combination staying nice and warm.

We've not summer campers though, too nice here at home to go anywhere. When winter approaches we're in our Airstream and out of here on a tour of the country, headed in a southerly direction.

I tried to use the supplied bedspread one time and promptly removed it from the trailer. One it is just plug ugly and two it felt like I had a sheet of lead on top of me. Horrible look and design in my opinion.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've looked at the pictures on the web and in the catalogue. We would like to see the Mica interior in person. I've looked on the website of just about every dealer on the east coast and no one has any in stock with the light colored counter tops. I don't know why they are so rare. Any ideas?

That's why I was asking for pictures.

I think that many folks prefer dark counter tops. That is our preference.

I have seen both in person. I liked the light countertop and cabinets, thinking it was light and bright. The rest of my family thought it was too sterile. I was outvoted so we are in the darker one. At the end of the day I like them both but now that we have the darker it is easier to keep clean. As far the dark bedspreads, I took them out. They are very difficult to sleep with in my opinion and I couldn't get past the "dry clean only" label. (Really, in a camper?) I replaced them with colorful ones that are washable in case our labs get them dirty.

For us, if the floorpan, design, and materials work, things like bedspreads and other easily changed items are of no importance whatsoever. I would focus on the fixed assets and modify the changeable items later.

While shopping on the website photos we too planned on the dark countertops. But when we saw them in real life, we preferred the lighter ones.

This is why they give you choices!
