The Caravel in the video looks to be a 16-footer. Seems like that would be the Bambi.

Inside scoop...the Caravel line up is going to be the same as the Bambi line but will include the front rock guards, rear bumper and upscale interior/decor. It will cost around $12k more than the Bambi line. Also the term "Sport" is going away and therm term "Bambi" will be replacing it. There's more but I am sworn to secrecy...

Bring Back the Longer 3-Axle Big Boys

They have the new factory coming on line later this year. Moving everything into it is going to be a massive lot of work. Since everything gets moved as part of this, the whole product line will be affected. I'm not sure that making a lot of changes on top of that move would be a good idea.

That said, yes, I have a Classic. I love using it. It's a great trailer for us. I would never in 100 years pick this interior over something more Euro / modernl. Solid build approach - sure, that's good. Style ... not so much. Yes, I've had the same problem each time we go shopping for a new house.

Once the factory size effectively triples, I would think there will be some significant changes in the lineup. Again, that's likely next year, but ... maybe not. What would I like to see:

1) Bring back the three axle "big boys". You now have the space to build them again. With people full timing in these trailers, there *is* a market for "bigger". What if you actually have a family with "full sized" kids ?

2) Put the power chairs / sofa / decent seating in something smaller than the 30'. Call it whatever you like. Give people a comfortable place to relax.

3) Dump the dinette and replace it with a desk in something in the 27' vicinity. This seems to be the most common mod I see people doing. It makes a lot of sense in the modern world. Offer it as a factory option.

4) Do at least one model that has a real storage locker. There are people who have outdoor hobbies. A lot of them involve hauling "stuff" along. Saying that you pack it all in the tow is not a great answer.

There are a long list of fiddly little changes I would make. They really are not a "new model" sort of thing.

Bob

I'm with you, bring back the big 3-axle AS' and I am in. More options on how to build it out. Especially for full time.

Question the same kidde side bed on the smaller airstream

SS front stone guard

they both still have the same kidde size side bed. when is airstream realize they need to have either queen bed or dual twin bed with smaller bathroom. you spend 8 hours sleeping in a kidde bed, but spend a few minuted in a king size bathroom/shower room.

the larger bambi or caravelle 19 or 20 or 22 have room for larger bed if use the 16 bambi bathroom.

here is my proposed layout fore the 19'

Hi

When I go digging for info on the larger trailers, I still get the 2019 information. If there are upgrades for 2020 on the other models, they certainly are not talking about them much.

Bob
