28 Classic

Here are my modifications to my 2005 Classic 28. The batteries are inside, so I built the woodwork to cover the battery boxes with a larger cabinet between. I moved the converter to the far roadside; there was plenty of cable to do this.

My wife and I each have a small drawer for meds and the like. We keep our stock of bottled drinks under the cabinet. There is also a shelf under there for our flags and a small toolbox.

We use $10 bamboo folding tables when we have a meal we can not eat on our laps. The tables are bungeed under the credenza where I removed the old folding table.

I always thought every Airstream should have a Tiffany lamp, so I added one. We remove the shade when we are under way. The base of the lamp is permanantly bolted to the cabinet.

Nice looking job, John. Thanks.

Huh, funny you should say trading in a motorhome, we just did the exact same thing in December, but our MoHo was only six months old and 7,000 miles. Bought it new, took a 7,000 mile trip and when stopped loved it, when moving hated it, so we went back to AS. Our MoHo dealer took ours back. Colonial will give you an offer on the MoHo, but probably not much better than Lazy Days. Colonial are great people as we bought a 2010 from them and they sell Itasca MoHos, but they don't like to take other brands in on trade. They gave us an offer on our Newmar, which was straight wholesale, our MoHo selling dealer gave us retail and the AS, although they are not an AS dealer. We did a deal through our local dealer, they sold it to the MoHo dealer and the MoHo dealer "gave" us the AS and a check. Good Luck.

Ours is a 2011 HR Endeavor 43DFT diesel pusher. We've absolutely loved it for 4 years and 24,000 miles (moving & stopped). But we're not RVing as much these days and are thinking that an Airstream would be more practical and certainly more economical (from payment and debt aspect) for the reduced usage we see having now. I think the Airstream would be a fun change, but a dramatic downsizing adjustment coming from the 43' Class A DP.

What a thread

After four years of putting up with this:
SBU Muscle Shoals 08.28.2013-7 by Fantinesvoice.com, on Flickr
I decided to return to the Airstream family. So, I now have this:
WBCCI_Mayberry_10.04.2014 by Fantinesvoice.com, on Flickr
and, really enjoy it more. It has the recliners, as this thread is about, I guess, and in overall comfort, there is a difference in style but not in actual comfort from the moho. I am now down to two televisions vs., four in the moho. But the AS has a window which opens at my head, I love this. Like sleeping outdoors.

Overall costs of the moho...51,000 miles @ $3.27/mile vs. cost of TV and AS is about $1.75/mi which includes all costs from purchase to selling...i.e., depreciation, taxes, tag,etc.

And, at Flying J I can now back into the parking spots where with the moho, it was drive through only when flat towing.

Three cheers for towing an AS vs driving a moho....

Our BIG adjustment back to an AS was the lost storage. With the Newmar we just threw anything we wanted in the basement. Our was a Gas, 38', great coach, but out west in the wind handled like a sail boat. We both have CDLs and it's the worst thing I've ever driven. So we took the hit and back to AS.

Going west again this summer and now Ill be able to see the sights while driving instead of hanging on. But I actually could back the MoHo up with a Jeep Wrangler attached. Took some time and effort but once backed her up 30' into a spot. Did not enjoy it, but got it done. Now, enjoy it.

Enjoy

Recliners vs sofa

Having to replace a broken original sofa in 1985 Excella 34 ft. How to get sofa in?? and size---the space is 76" long by 34" deep (allowing for keeping the foldout table). Does sofa have to be built inside (like Ikea stuff) to preclude not fitting through door. What brands of recliners fit??

Newbie, obviously. thanks for any tips.

Intersting that at home I have a couple of Ikea chairs which are in function like a recliner with their separate foot stools. And if I did not have my two factory AS recliners, the Ikea chairs would ne my choice. Maybe one fixed, one rocker, with one shared foot rest. And of course a system to secure to the floor when traveling. Check out the Ikea stuff as the comfort is actually better than the expensive AS recliners offered as an option in 2015's.

We replaced our sofa with a Lambright double recliner. Made for the yachting industry they are light. They come in three pieces which are easy to get through the door. Assembly was simple and easy. They also make single recliner chairs. Excellent quality.
