It is longer today

Changed our open Airstream order today from a Classic 27FB to a Classic model 30 with the same build date and six digit production number. The only option on the price list we selected is the 50 amp service with second A/C unit. Then while still at the factory, the trailer will be fitted with electric/hydraulic disk brakes with a Dexter brake controller on the trailer.

When we started looking, we were all set on a 25' model. Yeah, right...

Also, when I read the thread title, the first thing that came to mind was: "That's what she said".

Yes, I have a juvenile sense of humor.

Very good!

We moved up from a '92 25' to a '12 31' and the difference in space is amazing!

We were looking at 27's and 28's but we plan on semi-fulltiming (oxymoron?) upon retirement and knew we wanted more space.

We also went with a 31 since the entire bathroom is on one side and not split across the hall.

Have fun with it!

Just upgraded from a 2003 Bambi 19'to a 2013 Classic '31. Indeed the decision point for the 31' vs 27' was the single bathroom and the roomy closet on the other side. On top of the wheels.

I don't think you'll regret it....as well as the disc upgrade.

The Classic 30 floor plan has always been my favorite- but I should have gotten twin beds- more storage and easier to walk through- if there ever is a "next time"...

I also love our Classic 30' floorplan. I was a little leery of the bathroom being so "open". But I love the extra room! I just shut the doors on both sides and I have privacy and enough room to move around. It's great!

I also like the 31' floorplan as well.

Right now, our Airstream is winterized and parked. Darn! I miss taking it out for the weekend. Our next trip is going to be to the Oregon coast. can't wait!

I picked that floor plan based on the center bath. I do not like side bath models- too claustrophobic for me. Also, when traveling with the camping kitty we put the litter box in the bathroom- not possible in a side bath-
Our previous sob trailer had a center bath as well.

I picked the 30 versus the 31 because of the center bath, but the 31 has more closet space and I like the location of the microwave better. In my 30 I have to sit down in the dinette both to use the microwave...

Update

The factory declined to install the disk brakes until the vehicle is delivered to the dealership and titled. So that part gets delayed until we drive it back towards Indiana and beyond..

We are having two upgrades or modifications for a $450 up charge: since our homes have real wood plank flooring, the Classic wood look linoleum will be exchanged for the International Serenity flooring that we like and an aluminum backsplash behind the bathroom sink will be installed in lieu of the "fuzz" wall covering.

The five 16" SenDel T03-66655T wheels are in my storage unit and the Michelin LT 225/75R16E LTX M/S2 tires will be ordered the first week in January so they are fresh. They will be mounted along with the Dill TPMS 1503-453 tire valves. After the trailer gets here, I will personally install them using the Centramatic wheel balancers and McGard lug nuts.

The forum folks provided input for most of the ideas we have used on the 25Fb, we are using and will be implementing even after the trailer gets here.

Thanks to you all and Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow.

42 days to build date - 9 January and finishing 15 January. I will be there and will be taking as many photos as possible.

The same reasons we picked the 31 over the 30. I like the larger area in front of the couch on the 30. However' if you want that and the large wardrobe, you get a 34. I'm not ready for that extra 3 feet to tow. We have been very happy with our 31 and for us it was the best choice. We take 3 cats with us, so we got the cloth upholstery instead of Ultra "leather". The cats make a few marks on the upholstery, but they would get a big thrill from shredding leather, real or not.

If they still made a 34- or if they made a 34 with a pass-through center bath- or if they made a 34 with no carpet-
Even when they still made the 34 I liked the layout of the 30 better.

Our 34' is great!

Now, as we walk amidst this land-o-giant 5ers, megaslabsided behemoths, my wife remarks, "oh look at our tiny, puny trailer!!"
Haha
