Hey, I'll gladly pay a small finders fee once we find the perfect trailer. An ocean breeze 25ss is at the top of our list. $100 finders fee for anyone who can find us the right one for sale.

The 22 CCD has a wet bath. The fridge is less than 4 cu/ft. I've also read some owners of this model model had frame issues. I've seen this model and it is smaller than it looks in the photos.
The bed is only 48".

That 22' had some frame failure issues early on.

Is that the one mali Mish has? They don't seem to be using it these days. Maybe they would swap for the 30?

Mali Mish has an ocean breeze, but it isn't a 25ss. His is wither a 25fb or a 27fb, I can't remember which. We would be open to a 25fb ocean breeze (or flying cloud for that matter).

We wish we could find something in the 22-25' range that had a big fridge and big tanks, but we must be the only crazies who want to fill time in something smaller than 27'

I had a 25 and now have a 30. I can tell you first hand that the bigger tanks make a huge difference.

Isn't the only tank that is bigger in the 30 the water tank, 54 gal vs 37 gal in the 25/27. The waste tanks are about the same. I haven't tried boondocking (other in no hookup campgrounds like NPS) so maybe the extra 17 gallons is worthwhile if the water source is miles away.

Yes. I suppose you are right, although the grey tank is a bit bigger as well.

We tend to stay out for 3-4 days max before moving. We have run out of water with the 25 but not yet with the 30.

While a big fresh tank would be nice, we can easily fill that with 10 gal every day. We can't easily empty the grey when we'return boondocking.

We've been resisting getting a composting toilet for several reasons. We may have to look into getting one and combining the tanks to make one large Grey tank. We would rather have a big gretsch tank than a small Grey and big fresh. Grey and black are the most important to us.

It'd be awesome to find a 22-25 footer with the tanks we have now on our 30, but we realize that will never happen.

We can currently make it 2 weeks before the grey or black fill. We run out of fresh after a week, but we have been adding 10 gal a day via a pump and some jerry cans. It works pretty well.

Man, these 25ss are tough to find. I see a couple in CA, one in Maine, and that's it.

We are curious if anyone has swapped the fridge in a 23d. I think if you pulled out the microwave you could fit a 5 or 6 cf fridge in there...

We are having such a tough time finding a 25ss that we are somewhat considering a 23.

The main reason we want an ocean breeze is for the light Grey cabinets inside. If there were a good way to paint the cabinetry in a safari le, we could save a lot of money and still get a fresh looking interior. Anyone have a good way to paint the cabinets in a newer airstream? I realize it'll hurt resale, but if there's a clean way to do it, we will.
