New Globetrotter?

When I was talking to my dealer yesterday, I asked him if this was the last year of the Int'l Serenity, and he said no, not at all. They've just discontinued the 19 footer Internationals.

So I said I thought I'd heard they were replacing the International lines with something new, and he said the only new model will be a Globetrotter, available in only 27', and with only one color option. The cabinetry is more modern, curved, and a dark brown color. It'll be a 2018 and very limited production. That's all I could find out.

The dark cabinetry allayed my fear of missing out, but I'm wondering if anyone's heard anything else about it. Is this just a designer version, like the Tommy Bahama, and they're resurrecting the Globetrotter name?

That sounds fun, our vintage Globettotter will have some modern kin. Wonder what length and how they'll do the floorplan.

Modern styling in four different choices of wood finishes thiner Lighterwood for lighter construction similar floor plan as the 27Fb with a modified "U"dinette. Upper cabinets are reported to be international rounded style with flipup doors like the flying cloud International line is reported to be phased out It may have the radiant heat system Similar to the classic line About $3000 more in the internationals serenity line

Surprised the Mods haven't moved it. We saw Globetrotters going down the line.
