it makes sense -- I wasnt sure if the USB plugs were downconverts from the 12v or the 120v inverter system (so that airstream would only have to run 120v anything, rather than two seperate systems.... which I can see them doing.)

I found the wire behind one of the USB plugs under the dinette and connected a 12V plug to it - took all of 10 min and the plug hides out of the way under the dinette when I'm not using it. I didn't even need to take anything apart - it was easy to reach behind and poll out the extra wire to splice in the 12v plug which I bought at a NAPA store for less than $10. That way I kept both the USB plugs and added a 12V.

Smile Fc 26u

Finally turned in my beloved FC 20'; just needed more room for friends, and brought my 26U home yesterday. LOVE IT. Superb design -- looks as if they finally listed to users! Still not packed or unpacked, but looking forward to getting it right for me.

26U Twin

Saw the new 26U Twin bed floorplan at the RVIA trade show on Tuesday. Here's a quick video I did of it:

26U interior

We have our new 26U, after upgrading and downsizing from our 2005 30' classic, but I do feel that Airstream dropped the ball a bit on the interior curtains...just plain white blah...so I made some pinch pleated curtains and attached them on top of the existing AS ones...NOW it looks spectacular!!

Beautiful choice for the curtains! Can you describe how you attached them on top of the originals? Thanks, Joe

The plan was to take the curtains down and I was going to sew the new ones at the top and bottom, but that was looking like too much work (plus the dinette was in the way) I ended up pinning them top and bottom, used needle and thread for the ends.

Went to Foley RV in Gulfport MS, nice group of folks to deal with, to look at the 26U. I have to say for the most part, I liked it. The biggest drawback for me was that it had less storage than my 2006 23 footer. They had a 28 footer that has substantially more storage space with the rear bed and the closets on both sides of the bed. Wonder if at some point if it would be possible to swap out the dinette for the U shaped dinette that, think are used in the newer 23 footers.

Wow! The new pleated curtains really make a difference. They are gorgeous, love the print you chose! Thanks for sharing.

Love those curtains & thanks for the idea! We're looking to do something on the white curtains on our Sport, too, and that looks an easier solution

I really like this floor plan and look forward to seeing one in person. Would also hope for an International version in the future.

The U-dinette is very desirable due to its versatility. We would like to see one in real life, especially with twin beds. Pbarstow, the curtains are gorgeous. Great fabric choice.
