That's about right. Figure about 20% off sticker. Your local dealer can probably match it if they have stock.

I wonder if the 26U will make it to the international, and international serenity models in 2017?

Regarding service, the two year warranty opens a very big door. Jackson Center, Ohio is the trip I plan on taking towards the end of warranty period & get all issues resolved & i'm sure their will be some. The early issues I'll put up with & get fixed locally if necessary. The money saved on the buy makes a few bucks spent on a minor repair or two well worth while.

I love the way that you can reconfigure the dinette for a smaller table. With twins I think it would be best floor plan yet.

Also, check out the Colonial Airstream video on YouTube. I think it pretty much lays to rest the argument that Airstream doesn't pay attention to wish list posted here. LED awning lights done right; oversized battery box; TV that can swing into the doorway for outdoor viewing. A lot of clever ideas.

Then why do they absolutely refuse to install a good multi stage converter? This is one of the most wanted items.

Black Ultra Leather looks sooooo good. Great point on the converter. I just don't understand why something this expensive doesn't have a 3 stage converter. It costs me $200 to swap it out, you know it would be even cheaper for Airstream to do it during manufacturing.

Got my 26U on Sunday - barely had time to move stuff from my old (now) 23FB to the new 26U before I had to leave town for a two week business trip. First impressions were that I love the layout. Dinette is huge and with just one table turned sideways you have two really comfortable lounging positions. Shower is huge as is the bath and I like the idea of the mace rating toilet. Even though the bed isn't really any bigger, the added space for the credenza makes the room feel much bigger.

First trip and test of systems won't be for a few weeks and I'll report back (with pics) when I have time to act silly spend in the unit.

One aside - the ducted air is dramatically quieter - wow. Also, my 26U only has one AC and, indirect sun and 85 degree weather, it called it down pretty fast and kept it cool. It didn't seem like there was a lot of air coming from the ducts but it was ...

Colonial, as always, did a great job delivering the new unit and picking up my old one. Great staff!

Looking at the posted photo it appears you can rest your back on the rear cushions and spread your legs out to watch TV. If I try that on my 25fb 1/3 of my legs hang off the dinette which I find uncomfortable. The next time we are out we are going to try to put our dinette table down then pull out the side couch slide and move to cushions down so we can sit together. The wife gets the corner but the side couch pulled out should be able to support my legs when sitting next to her while watching TV.
