No one ever reaches GVWR unless they are hauling rocks from every place they visit or jars of jelly or other canned goods.

Sorry but I am the most sarcastic member of this forum, and sick of having the CAN I TOW THIS WITH THIS DEBATE

People say I'm overloaded.
So, what...
I can't wait to walk through a new Classic.

Ron, you must be very excited.....we are looking forward to seeing your Classic on Saturday.

BTW, thanks for the pictures.....it gives me a great idea for a custom option on our FC that will "fix" something that bothered us. I'll be talking to Andy while we are visiting CanAM

One thing I'm not keen on. The two way vertical blinds. At first it seems nice to have an option for both a solid blind and a semi-opaque "day-time" blind but there's no way to have it fully open to enjoy the full wrap around view. I'm wondering if the semi-opaque portion of the blind could be removed so you are either fully open or completely closed....that would be more ideal for us.

You can open both sections to have a clear view.
I've changed my bedroom blinds twice with different types. I'm thinking these new Classic ones will be the best ones yet. But time will tell....
See you Saturday.

Well, well...I just had my first look at the 2015 Classic thanks to Firedog! What a beauty to say the least! Thank you so much Russ and Lisa for letting us come over and take a sneak peak. I did not want to leave! Guess I better get to selling A LOT more homes cause I've got it in my blood now and it's not going to go away!

Wow! I just hope that you are still in the "Great White North" when all that happens.

No new owners manual, They included last years as new one won't be ready for few weeks. Took me hour to find breaker panel. Someone forgot to install latch on drawer under microwave so we need to order that for dealer to install when we go back. must have inverter running to operate power recliner.(not crazy about that) but we love this trailer. The lighting both interior and exterior is superb. Given about 20 tours so far. We are here at Suncoast Rally, Dade City FL.
Regarding the recliner/inverter issue. On our 2012 the inverter was not plugged into a shore power outlet. In talking to the inverter manufacturer they stated that if it was in short power it would simply pass it through to the outlet.

This is great! I just leave the TV's plugged into the inverter outlets. When on shore power they work normally without the inverter turned on.

Might help your recliner irritant?

Why wouldn't AS have installed an automatic transfer switch and tossed all the secondary outlets? This is how my aftermarket solar/inverter is setup and I never have to touch power cords.

I am waiting to hear back from Airstream on a fix for the recliner issue. My understanding is they had to choose either shore or inverter power & thought it best to choose inverter because it will work either way. It is annoying to have the inverter on when you are on shore power because you can hear the inverter. If any one has any luck on this fix please pass it on.

Thanks Bob

Does your inverter have a power cord?

Here is what is in mine: http://www.bestconverter.com/assets/...f600manual.pdf
