Southland RV in Atlanta has a GT on the lot. We recently purchased our 28 Serenity from them, and they were great to deal with. GT’s are in high demand, so don’t expect huge discounts.

2019 gt

We bought a 2019 GT Front Twin as my husband is 6’3”. I’d prefer the interior storage of the queen but love the roominess of twin. The only thing I have an issue with is the upholstery and flooring. Impossible to get crumbs out of upholstery. Floor is very hard to clean as it is strands of woven string. It is beautiful and we traded in the totally beige flying cloud for this 27’ with cream upholstery and walnut cabinets. We also have a minor issue with auto awning. It stops short of closing so have to open a bit and then it will close all the way. Don’t get me wrong we love it. Just these minor issues. Try dealer in Burlington VT. If you can wait they quoted us $83k for one on order. Can’t tell you what was included but great deal Order one if you want a good deal.

We are taking delivery of a new 2019 Globetrotter 27 Twin in a couple of weeks. We opted for the twin beds because of the increased useable floor space in the bedroom and for the layout of the bedroom storage. There is room at the foot of each twin bed for our large computer/work backpacks. We can both change clothes at the same time without leaving the bedroom. It is also easier to keep one sleeping side warm and the other cool with the bedding. The dealer was quick to point out that the front dinette can be quite accommodating for "cuddle time" if the twins are too small.

We got about 18% discount. The unit was already pre-ordered with twin A/C and 50amps--which probably would have been my preference anyway. We are in Wisconsin but the summers can be quite hot and humid. Also, who knows where we will drive to?

Congratulations! I think you will enjoy your new GT. We love ours!

Congratulations. We got ours back in July and it's been great. Some minor issues but overall it as been flawless. We have the twin bed also and the dog loves it because he can sleep between the beds, not to mention the extra space it gives. We have gone out six times. Still learning about all the nuances with Airstreams.

I have a 2019 GT twin on order with dual air. I still have time to change my order. Is there any disadvantage to having the dual air w/50 amp. I am thinking that the overall cost difference is not that much I might be better off down the road as far as re-sale.

I don't need the 2nd air here in the NW but plan on travelling to Arizona/Calif/Nevada for about a month each year.

Appreciate other thoughts on this. Dave

With the 50amp you lose a fantastic fan and the front 30amp socket by the a-frame. You also have to purchase a 50amp to 30amp service adaptor if you stay somewhere that only has a 30 amp service or if you hook into a 30 amp generator. You gain dual-zone air conditioning or heating with the heat pumps. You also have a backup air conditioner available if one goes out while camping.

30a adapter

FYI that our 2019 GT w/50a came with a 30a adapter from AS.

I live in Arizona and if you visit in summer-ish or summer months (April through September) you will want the dual air. Depending on where you visit the ďsummerĒ may be longer as well.

Your logic on resale as well is spot on.

The adapters you need for sites with 30amp service cost little compared to what you just paid for the AS itself.

We have dual air on our 2018 27FB Tommy Bahama and love it!

Enjoy your GT!

First, congratulations on your new GT. It is a beautiful trailer. The difference between 30 amp and 50 amp service is the availability of 12,000 watts versus 3,600 watts. If hooked to 50 amp you can run both a/cs and microwave at the same time.

Another bonus of 2 A/Cís that hasnít been mentioned yet that we take advantage of is running the rear A/C at night when sleeping and the front A/C during the day. This further lessons the noise experienced from the running A/C in the space we are mostly occupying.

We full time in our 2018 27FBQ FC in the Texas Hill Country. On a hot, sunny, summer day, the smaller front A/C (13,000 BTUH) can keep the trailer cool until it gets to about 90 degrees F outside then the second A/C (15,000 BTUH) will start running.

We experienced the bed against the wall in our 2015 22FB Bambi and it was very uncomfortable during cold weather camping so we went with the queen for winter sleeping comfort and snuggle factor.

We treat the entire trailer as the bedroom when it comes to getting dressed.

We travel with the gear you can fit in the outside storage of the twin bed configuration in 3 totes carried in the trailer while moving and put them in the bed of the truck when camping.

I have had my GT for a year now and have spent about 3 months total. My understanding from shopping was every GT I looked at in AZ, WA, OR, CO, CA, and BC all came with 2 AC standard. When I was in CA this summer it was very helpful to have 2. I had to take my GT in for a furnace issue which was my own doing, I stopped in Temecula and got 5 star service. I was then called back by the Temecula boys who advised me that there was a safety issue on the cabinets above my sink. I stoped at Paso Robles and once again got 5 star service from AS. This is my 4th trailer and I would never had gotten the service I did from both of these AS dealers. I have one issue with my sink coming slightly loose in one corner but have faith in the next AS dealer can fix that easily. I just want to add that I was traveling through CA and only phoned each dealer a day in advance and then got me in. For any of you thinking of traveling on I5 in CA be prepared I have driven on better country roads.
Need a good price call John Dirickson at Paso Robles I shopped for 6 months and got 8 quotes and John knocked it out of the park.

FC VS Globetrotter

My husband and I are about to purchase our first Airstream and are torn between the FC and Globetrotter. Has anyone owned both? Is it really worth the extra money to go with the GT? Can anyone help me with resale. Most dealers have told me its easier to resell a FC due to price point. #confused
Thanks in advance

stef0597. About a year ago I had the same questions as you will see if you read above. I had a 23' International FBQ at the time.


I purchased a 2019 27 Globetrotter Twin with dual air and 50 amp.



I did not consider the Flying CLoud. For me it is the decor that I wanted and as I am one of the older owners on this site and for me the decor was what was important to me and not how long it may take to re sell it at a later time.



Possible there is less Globetrotters being made and if that is so there will be less available when I want to sell.


Buy what pleases you.


Dave
