Hey Barry, I see that you are in Greensboro and I assume that you have ordered your new Classic from Joel at ODM? I also have one ordered from ODM for spring delivery. I was thinking about changing out the skylights to Maxims, however I have not been able to get any info from ODM on the dimensions. I was curious how you were able to obtain this info? Thanks in advance for any help.

I was given the factory drawing for the skylight frames on our 2014 Classic even before it was built. While doing the solar system installation, we took actual measurements as requested by Maxim. The variance between the drawings and reality would have precluded installation of Maxim skylights based upon the drawing numbers. Even though we had actual measurements, the factory frames were not truly squared up in all the corners and careful grinder use was necessary to complete the install on the rear skylight.

We put the bronze in front and the frosted white in the back and that worked well and the frosted white provides the best reduction in heat gain.

I got up on the roof of a '15 Classic on Tuesday and measured the two skylight curbs very carefully. Also, took a series of measurements before ordering solar panels and a Winegard Trav'lr satellite dish. I do expect to have to move a factory antenna (or two). While I am not big on putting holes on the roof, I had zero issues from all the roof work I did on the '12 Intl....just use the right tools/caulk. Maybe I should buy a CASE of Sikaflex!

Very careful measurements of the units on trailer A have no correlation to the actual measurements on trailer B as these are hand made and poorly at that. Our rear flange was not truly square in all three axis, thus the need to grind on it to get the Maxim to fit over it with the help of a several pound rubber hammer.

I still had the detail from the order I placed for Maxim skylights that I'd ordered for my '12 28' Intl CCD. They were the same size as those I've ordered for the new trailer. More amazing than the lack of anything really square was the quality of the originals. Having said that, getting the old ones off was not all that easy. The butyl tape really held the "Saran Wrap" skylights in place....

Question for you who have the new 2015 Classic. While reviewing the video of the 2015 Classic, my wife and I noticed that they have done away with the pocket doors and replaced them with curtains. The video we watched looked as if one could see through the curtains thus reducing privacy. Is this the case? Thanks ahead of time for the follow up.

Mine hasn't arrived, but I can answer your question. There are two pleated dividers that allow you to separate the trailer .... they are thick enough to provide plenty of privacy. Had the same set-up in my '12 28' Intl CCD....but they were a lighter color. Location is designed to allow you to separate the trailer both in from of and behind the bath, so if you have guests up front you can divide the trailer accordingly.

Mine does not have the Pocket door in the bedroom or hall, and yes it has the folding curtain, however you can not see through it. I am very well pleased with mine, however most of the time I travel alone, except for my parents, and their unit is identical to mine. Personally I like it better than having the pocket door. But I do understand that's a personal preference and others prefer the door.

Thanks so much for the response. I was pretty sure it was like my 2006 25ft Safari I had but the way the light shined behind the curtain it appeared to be somewhat see through. Thanks again for the responses.

New Options!

I was just informed by my Dealer that AS is going to start offering a twin bed option on the new classic in March, for those of you interested - not me, also heard that they were going to offer the no oven with drawers option also, like other models. The one option that I keep hoping for and haven't heard anything on, is a shirt closet option. Thats the one i'm waiting for.

The 2014 and earlier models had a roof locker above both bedroom side windows and a shirt hanging closet above the foot of each bed.

If we knew then what we know now....

The Airstream drawing for the mattress reflects the wood the mattress rests on. We would have made the mattress 4" longer so it fitted against the curve an the back of the trailer and still reached to the squared off part of the board at the foot of the mattress. We went with 8" mattresses but could have gone with 10". That choice would required ordering custom sheets from a different vendor than Airstream. Airstream mattresses were 7" and their sheets were huge but fitted well on the 8" custom mattresses we installed.

It would have been possible to make the twin bed mattresses nearly 12" longer than the drawing shows for really tall folks. Not an issues for us a 5' 5" and shorter.

Oven Delete!

I just confirmed with my Dealer that the oven delete with drawers is going to be an available option early next year. I am glad I waited on my Classic, as with everything new, they always seem to offer more options as they go along. I don't personally see the need for two ovens, my Wife would rather have two more drawers. I also made sure that you get to keep the new deluxe stove top and cover. Who knows what they may offer next, before I get mine in April?
