Red face Camping with black flies.....

"to buy one with visions of dining with an open hatch."

For us......that's what the Zip-Dee is for. Keeping the screen door closed.

Maybe ok if you camp in a bug free State, which one would that be?

Actually the EB has a screen that can be pulled down when the rear hatch is open so bugs are not really a problem.

I posted this in AS lifestyle, I wasn't aware that an EB only thread was available,

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f483...-eb-97385.html

I looked at the Pan Am on paper, too long to get into Nat & state CG's. About the same length of my 40' 5er if you lopped off the hitch overhang. Two years later the EB came out, the 25 didn't have the closet/pantry room I need. So happy the 27 came out, and I got in on the production schedule.
It may be more years until another version of the hatch back 'stream gets born

I don't think it matters in the long run where you posted it. Most users see the posts from all threads and forums (except those they have chosen to ignore) in the portal or new posts section. I saw your post and am waiting to hear all it all turns out.

Unlike other companies, Airstream only builds to order, so if they don't have orders for a specific model they don't build them. So what you see on the line at the factory has been ordered by a customer/dealer.

27 footer advantages EB

The queen in the 27 is fore and aft, which definitely makes stowing the table top easier than in the 25. The pantry is much bigger and more functional - the microwave is lame, so tossing it is an option. If you're boondocking, cook outside with a dutch oven! The hanging closet space is doubled too.

Deleting the cheap skylights - 2 in the 27 as opposed to 1 in the 25 is another good option, though you may want a 3rd fantastic fan near the bath area where the smaller skylight goes.

I would think that the table top could also be stored between the cushions of the folded up dinette bench. Hidden under dinette and under couch storage doesn't exist, but pretty covered bins could definitely be used there. (Comments about using 2 recliners instead of the dinette in a 25 - Measure the space. You'll fit one on the door side, but the location of the FURNACE and the side couch/bed will crowd the heck out of the second one... though you might "negotiate" shortening the couch a couple of inches, or at least using a round corner like on the bed. Recliners do make a lot of sense when you remember where the TV is.)

As for the Rear hatch, I'd probably make a mosquito netting to go around the edge of the open door... and ad a ground mat so I could step down into the "back porch" if I wanted.

Unfortunately I didn't win the power ball so.... no new EB for me.

Are there two skylights in a 27 EB? I have recently (this summer, new rigs) seen one in a 27 FC and two in a 27 safari
I've only seen a 25 EB in person, no 27.

I just came from the Airstream dealer in Tucson. Checked his inventory and there is a new EB scheduled for delivery in February 2013.

I was at the plant one week before Christmas, and at that time there was several EB's in the production process.

I was speaking with Jackson Center last week and was told that EB's are on for 2013 and "highly likely" for 2014, as their national sales figures are good. For what it's worth.
