I think most of us went through the interminable wait process. My "right before Christmas" delivery turned out to be January 30th. So, we were too late to be able to plan a decent Florida trip. Having said that, the wait was definitely worth it. Page, I know you and Bob are SUPER anxious to make the break from your now sold house into your Classic. You'll have it before long!

Hay Remax Gal.How did you find out yours is done. We also had plans on the first week of May. Were going to break it in at Disney. Now if we change it is going to cost us 200.00 more. I am Pages other half.

We found out from Tim Maxwell. Not completely confirmed, but he thought it would be ready for release today. We are waiting to find out for certain. You should have yours extremely soon too!!

Tim was the person that also kept us informed on the build date. He was kind enough to take a few pictures of our Classic going through the build process while he was at the facility doing tours.

I believe Bob has tried to contact Tim Maxwell. Haven't heard back from him if he did.

Have not yet heard from anybody.? Was told when ordered that we would get a 30 day notice to the build to make changes(never got). Called and was told to late to change anything. Was told several times of the build date and quit job and sold house since we were told the date several times and now told date wrong. Have emailed Airstream twice and no response. NOW is this common for everybody else? Starting to worry a little. Might start looking at the Artic Fox trailers

Bob, I know how frustrated you and Page are...my suggestion is that you call the dealer and light a small fire under A/S to at least give you a ballpark date. My delivery date moved at least 3 times (that I know of).

Why would you expect Airstream to bypass their dealer where you bought this trailer and deal with you direct? If they can't or won't give any info on the delays to the dealer why would they give it to you - assuming they have any to give?

When at the factory last week we were told that the current Classic delays are being driven by a supplier quality issue and rejection of incoming components. Airstream may have little control of how long this delays completion of trailers.

I knew they were having issues with the cabinet provider.

Picked up our Classic on Monday April 20th from Colonial. Delivery was on time but then I ordered in December for a delivery first of April. It had been on the lot for about two weeks.

Here's a stream of consciousness as I sit here in Rapid City, SD with a very rainy Sunday.

Trailer has been flawless. Fit and finish outstanding. Working my way back from New Jersey to the Denver area I have had long periods of heavy rain and zero leaks.

The shades do have a tight clearance with the window opening knobs. Don't think I will cut the shorter as it is very easy to simply lift the shades, two hands one on each side of the bar and pull it slightly towards the inside of the trailer. Straight forward.

The curved window shades are a bit hard to get fully closed. If there is a trick/tip let me know.

Night shades are outstanding. Interior is dark as a cave with everything covered. Pretty impressive if you like to sleep in late

Couch and dinette seats are very comfortable.

We ordered twin beds. The mattress seems to be much improved over the queen we had in the 2014 FC. Really like having a mattress that is 78" long.

Had one drawer under the twin beds that wouldn't stay closed. Turns out that the latch on the back wall was in the closed position so wouldn't grab the hook on the drawer. Very easy to remove the drawers. There are handles on the inside of each sliding rail. Reach under the sides towards the face and pull them towards the outside and you can lift the drawer out. Same on all of the cherry cabinet drawers.

Furnace really pumps the heat. Heat Pump with the ducts means I can run the smaller rear heat pump, less noise up front, and keep things warm.

Couple of nits. The 'medicine' cabinet door over the toilet will open and hit the bathroom door frame. I put a small felt dot on the wall.

Same with the hall handle on the bathroom door. It will open all the way to flush along the hallway and the door handle will bang into the front of the slide out pantry. Another small felt dark colored dot just to be safe.

The main circuit breaker panel is not labeled. Since there is no owners manual yet, heard again 'real soon now', there should have been a label. I have a drawing schematic but still should be properly labeled.

Since there is no manual there are no specs for tire pressure or wheel nut torques. I've asked the factory for that info.

Compared to my 2014 FC 25 the water pump is very quiet.

Shower head does not tilt but not much of an issue as I am 6'4". It does not have a shutoff at the head as others have mentioned. It's simple to remember where the mixer handle needs to be for a good temp. Each to turn off and then back on to the same general spot.

Polk audio system sounds good and Sirrius/XM receiver is included. Just need to activate.

Found that the HDMI splitter doesn't play well with the DISH VP211 satellite receiver. I get a picture but no audio. Tried multiple arrangements after removing the BluRay player and mounting box. I don't know if the box is bad or it just doesn't like the HDMI output from the DISH box. Did not have the issue with my 2014 FC so suspecting the box might be bad.

I'll be ordering another switch that will take 3 inputs with 2 outputs and replace it. That way I can have inputs from the BluRay, DISH VP211 and my iPad.

TV antenna has been a bit of a disappointment. Not sure that it has the oomph of the old crank up. Need to try it some more where there are better signals. Barry (BAB) removed it and replaced with the Jack directional. that might be an option but I use the sat a lot and it has done a great job.

Only item that is not working consistently is one of the hallway closet lights. Doesn't consistently turn on when the door opens.

What I miss is the 12V output plug in near the BluRay player and no power outlets in the front overhead cabinets. Would be nice to have power in the cabinets for my cellphone booster but can probably by setup.

Tows like a dream. ProPride and GMC 2500HD Duramax. So far averaging 13.2mpg from NJ, down through Virginia then over to Louisville. Lunch at Churchhill Downs. Then lunch the next day at Lake of the Ozarks and then now a few days in Rapid City, SD before heading back to Denver.

ghaynes - thank you so much for all of your information. Seems unbelievable that they still do not have an owner's manual! Not sure exactly when we will be picking ours up, but hopefully within the week. I so wish there was a GPS tracker on it. The best laid plans... Oh well, I would rather it be right than to have so many problems.
