I'm not sure what the white spots are but if they are on both the map wall and the laminate it must be an external something that stained not a flaw. Has your dealer checked it out?

Your dealer should be able to fix the floor squeak for you.

In our 2013 25FB International Serenity, we attempted to convert that wedge dinette cushion to the chair storage cabinet like in the 27FB Classic. The idea would have been implemented easily if the (executive deleted) dealer had just copied the pages from the parts book to give their carpenter a clue on what was needed. The project was an unmitigated disaster and they redid it several times, but the unit should have been trashed and done over from the ground up.

We learned to never trust a dealer to do more than hand me the light bulb so I can change it...

I would hazard a guess that some dealers have better service departments than others.

Not armchair quarterbacking here because I would likely have made the same mistake. However, it just now occurred to me that before turning a particular dealer (or anybody else) loose on our trailer for a significant upgrade or major repair it might be a good idea to ask them to provide references from other customers who had significant work of that nature done by that outfit.

#30 is now spoken for and going thru QC. I noticed the white spots only on the wardrobe door on my second walkthru. There were some found in other random locations by the dealer. The first step is a repair by a furniture finish specialist (not AS or dealer). If it looks good I'll be fine with a repair instead of a replace. It's a very minor issue, for me.

What tow vehicle is everyone planning for their Pendleton? I'm going to try with an 2004 E-350 Super Duty DRW and see how it goes. I've placed an order for a 2017 F-250 just in case. Pro-pride hitch on order.

Ambot - Congratulations on #30. We are currently towing #006 with a 2012 F350 DRW 6.7d. The truck doesn't even know the Airstream is back there. While it is overkill for the trailer, we already had the truck for our slide in Truck Camper. I think the 2017 F250 would be a perfect match, especially with the diesel powerplant. These trucks are towing monsters.

Well, we finally are officially members of the Pendleton family...#99 showed up at our dealer last week and we brought her home on Friday.

What a gorgeous trailer...inside and out. So many cool details. Everything was in order...no problems with walk through and delivery.

Pulled it home (about 60 miles) with our new 2016 Toyota Tundra CrewMax 2 wheel drive Texas Edition. Love this truck! 4.30 rear drive, tow haul button, built-in brake controller, 38 gallon fuel tank, trans and oil coolers. I added Timbren SES (used these on the 3/4 ton diesel also and loved the added support and stability) before we towed the trailer and with the Blue Ox Sway Pro with 1000lb bars it tows like a dream. We had a 3/4 ton diesel when we towed our 30 ft Classic and I have to say the Tundra feels as stable at speed, stopping and starting, backing up the drive as the diesel did. It had all full propane and water tanks. I won't need that much water when we travel. The holding tanks were half full too from system testing. They will normally be empty when traveling. Overall I am happy with the Toyota performance. We aren't heavy packers so weight won't be a problem.

My favorite new gadget is the rearview camera. Large color screen and clear view of what is behind the airstream going down the road. It really helps see traffic when changing lanes.

Anyway, just thought I would chime in and let all my Pendleton pals know #99 is home and were ready to hit the road! Blessings All!

Congrats!!! We absolutely love ours (#62). I have reported the problem with the veneer (white spots) to: our salesperson, service department at the dealership (they took photos), and no reply from anybody. Maybe paying for a professional repair would be the easiest thing.

I'm picking up #30 Friday which has gone under professional repair and I'm told there is no telling a repair was done. Will report back!

Maiden Voyage of #006

Finally had warm enough weather here in Colorado to de-winterize and breakaway for a long weekend. Snowed the first night but the sun is out for real. Love the Pendleton!

Just picked up 77/100 this weekend in Knoxville. Headed home. Cannot wait for an extended trip in this beautiful Airstream.
