Please post information on 2017 Classics

Could new owners of 2017 Classics please post their experiences with the new trailer and all the new upgrades that have been done. Would really help us who are on the fence about upgrading.

Thanks!!

I'll give you a sneak peek of one of the mods on my '17
Much has been written about the new Alde hot water/heating system and it's issues. Airstream recently added a new mixing valve to help with longer showers.

My dealer; CanAm in London, ON (best RV dealer....seriously folks...the best) found that the single lever shower faucet was causing problems. Remember that the single lever controls pressure (not really...on or off) and temperature.
They replaced the stock valve with a Grohe 2 valve (one valve for pressure; the other for temperature [thermostatically controlled]).

The lead technician working on my RV called to let me know this afternoon; that with propane only, shower at full pressure with a good hot temperature selected; lasted 5.5 minutes.

For me that's fine. I regularly thumb switch-off the shower head when soaping/lathering. Plus when adding the electric elements to the mix; hot water should be plentiful.

I'll be posting pics; maybe even a video of all the mods.

Ron

Great Info, please keep it coming. I was told the 3 port roof cap for solar was only wired with 10 gage wire, no where enough for all the watts you can add to that port. Can you ask Can Am about that.

I can second the comment on CanAm. Super people to deal with and their service is excellent.

I can support that as well. A few weeks ago we arrived just after closing. Our trailer was plugged in and out front for us to use. Andy T came out a few minutes later and rather than wishing us a good night, re-opened, sorted the bill, decided our hitch needed adjusting so opened the shop and did the work all while being gracious and as excited as ever about towing and Airstreams. It let us get on our way without delay. Fantastic people.
