From what I have read, the power stabilizers are to stabilize by firming up at that spot, not level the trailer like in a motor home.

Haven't noticed that the stabilizers are slow when you deploy or retract them. I just appreciate not having to do it with the battery operated drill!

Just visited our new baby. She's still being prepped and we pick her up at 3 this afternoon. Happy!

When I get the checkout lists, 110# is shown as the torque. The lug nuts, studs, and drums are all the exact same as is used with the 15" wheels. I'll try to get an answer for sure from Airstream, and if I can't before, I'll ask them in person at the end of this month, and post back here what I am told.

I am in LOVE!!! Picked up the new classic on Thursday and camped for the weekend to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. We are thrilled with our purchase! They did a great job on the new classic! Click image for larger version

I love it!

I can't wait until we get ours, but we're waiting for the new roof without the raised hump sections. But, it's sooooo hard to wait!

I love the upscale look of the new Classic. It's sooooo impressive, even moreso in person. I love the attention to detail on things such as the ducted A/C vents. Just beautiful! And the solid real cherry cabinets would feel right at home in an attorney's office. They are just exquisite, and the countertops and appliances are like those you'd find in a high end Prevost. Truly a trailer tailor made for the finest resorts.

Sure, these Airstreams are pricey, but that's sort of the point of the new Classic; it truly is a cut above the lesser trailers (my 25FB included). Wait, make that several cuts above!

The new Classic was finally truly designed for those who desire the finest things in life.

We can't wait until we order ours! Hopefully with the revised roof they will also add some of those 12v outlets back for those of us who aren't quite ready to leave all of our plebian tendencies behind ha ha ha ha.

One day we will join this exclusive club of Classic owners!

We just can't hardly wait!!!!!!

We love ours, too! Brought her straight to Ft. Wilderness and she is a gem.
We will add our touches to her when we roll back home at the end of this week. Hope to have them all completed before we head to Alumapalooza.

I heard back from Dan in customer service.
He says torque for OEM 16" aluminim wheels is 125/130 lb/ft.
