Should AS bring back the 34's?

Thoughts?

I Vote Yes!

For me, having looked at Airstreams every time that I purchased SOB over the last 26 years, I always liked the old 34' Classic Limited with the horizontal LP tanks and triple axles! I thought that was the coolest looking TT that I have ever seen. I personally liked the solid Hickory and the padded interior walls and ceiling. I thought that AS should have made 85 of those for their anniversary, and I would have bought one of those bad boys in a New York Minute!

It's the only AS I'd trade my 30' for.

Thumbs up Hell Yeah

I second FCStreamer's comment. It is the only Airstream I would trade my 30' International for. That being said, I wouldn't want a Classic. If they ever made a 34' Serenity I would buy # 1.

Interesting idea. What about bringing back slides? I heard once that Airstream kept a list of people who wanted slides, and when there were enough, they would make some. Wonder if they do the same with the 34' coaches? It seems that the 34' coaches weren't made every year.

Perhaps. I think more thought needs to be focused on more width. Slides are the rage in the entire RV market. It really does open up the interior. I have been in an Airstream SO and the dinette slide out, while nice, was not really much of a slide. If they would look at the floor/wall and rethink it, maybe opposing or larger slides would be possible.

I'm not so sure about the slides. They just don't seem to be things that will last a long time, like 20+ years. The beauty of Airstreams is in their simplicity. I for one have seen too many leaks to want slides. YMMV.

All slides leak. My 34 is 25 years old. If it had slides it would have started leaking about 23 years ago and really shortened my ownership.

c'mon HowieE, what's wrong with a little leak? Think of all that room you would have with slides!
I understand about leaks but still, I believe they could retain Airstream and come up with something. Look at the EB. What if one side popped up and slid down from inside and the floor extended? Just sayin.
