I would like the option of clear glass in the windows. Not all of us live in hot climates with sunshine which needs to be shielded out all the time. On a gray day my FC 20' is like a tomb inside. My old Argosy with clear glass windows is fine.

I would like to see an on-board 3000 watt LP gas generator to go along with the new 40# aluminum tanks.

I would like the option of having the all in one bath on all models with a bathroom window that opens, even if its small. Also bring back the tub like in the vintage models. I also would kinda like to see out the window in the door. Maybe i could put a decorative stained glass decal on it for a bit of privacy but not that smoked out oval they have now. I would also like the location of the booth and kitchen reversed on the 30ft so the neighbors arent staring at you as you eat breakfast, and while we are at it not have the door block part of the window like the 28ft, and a few diff bedroom layout options I would rather have a smaller bed vs a queen and have more living or dressing room area. hmmm that sums it up I think ooh more plugs both kinds.I think you should be able to design your own.

Why don't they have aluminum floors like the Livin' Lite Camplite (recently bought by Thor)? Or Trex decking?
The Classic does have aluminum steps. That influenced my decision.

The Classic also has a scare light and stainless steel rock guards. All of these things can be added to the Sport at Jackson Center. I know because I've seen it done.

Our Flying Cloud didn't come with the factory-installed inverter, and it will be tough to install one in the finished trailer. There's no way to get wiring from the battery relay in the front to the charger and load center in the galley, or to the space behind the fridge on the road side. I want to install a simple inverter in the front stowage area that will power a dedicated outlet strip in the closet, on the road side forward of the fridge - to run the wine cooler while we're on the road! The trailer gets too warm when on the road, and the wine cooler will keep the Cabernet ready to drink when we stop for the night. The cooler draws very little AC current, and the batteries are being charged by the TV when connected, so no discharge worries. We can also use the outlets in the closet to charge all our electronic toys.



We're talkin' necessities here...

I've done that installation many times! There IS a very elegant way to do what you seek.

PM me for details!

An aluminum frame was research tested in San Antonio, some 4 decades ago.

It was ahuge failure, yet it appeared to be well constructed.

I saw it under test.

Many folks are asking for more dc and ac electrical outlets. That most probably requires additional battery and battery charging capacity, which I would like to see in the form of larger solar output to larger AGM batteries with their solar option.

Wow! As the OP I'm didn't expect this many responses and so many great ideas. It was kind of a tongue in cheek comment about how I fell about network TV, especially celebrity worship shows. Most of you seemed to miss that or chose to ignore it. I hope some from Airstream Inc. is looking as this, as there are some good ideas and valid complaints.

I have mixed feelings about this but my wife would like to see a 30' front bedroom. Probably would have to buy a new AS, but at least I know what I'd order.

If anyone has email addresses of Management people at Airstream it would be advisable to forward a link to this thread. As it will allow them to watch the thread and get valuable feedback from both their existing owners and the buying public as a whole. I would think that would be a valuable tool when planning future production options.

Cheers
Doug

Can't verify, but I'm almost certain that Airstream Corp has someone in the management group monitor this forum. What better way to get feedback on their products?

If they don't, I'd be very surprised.
