The new Silvertwinkie

Having just got back from Ohio, I have new pictures of the new Twinkie.

I will post all info regarding build quality, etc on this thread if you are interested:

http://www.airforums.com/forum...?threadid=7106

At any rate, here are the pics of the new '04 Safari Six Sleeper. BTW, orders placed today may not be filled until Aprilish......they are that swamped!

**edit**

Pics have been moved to www.silvertwinkie.org

Including pics of the factory.

Fantasic fan....now I heard that all fans at some point are going to be exhaust only, however, this unit still had and intake/exhaust on the front with a rear exhaust only.....both have the rain sensor and the rear fan was at an additional cost, and not part of the LS package.

This picture is of the rear fan unit.

I lied...this is the last pic...it appears that Airstream has pitched the old roof locker holders that would break...now they use a spring loaded device on either end of the door...here is what it looks like....no more kickstand type device...just open it stays open and close and it stays closed.....

Congrats, Eric!

I can't imagine a more opposite "picking up a new trailer" experience from mine than yours... that fresh, clean, new, good-smelling interior... and polished, dent-free, perfectly functioning, fully warrantied exterior - look awfully good right about now. Have a blast!

Thanks all...I love it too......she is a gem....I will be driveway camping, plus, if you don't tell Brandi, it's kind of my "basement" as my house doen't have one. Nice little getaway without having to get away.

You know it all starts as a young kid building a fort.....as you get older, you want light, music, then heat, then A/C until one day you find yourself with an Airstream!

Eric

Here are two pic of us saying goodbye to the old Twinkie (Bambi) and one as we drove off..... Sniff...sniff...

Eric,

Just wanted to join everyone else in congratulating you on your new coach. She is beautiful!! We sure have enjoyed our '04 25 footer. In fact, we are taking her to Disney's Fort wilderness campground over the holidays. You'll find there is so much more room than our old Bambi's that you will wonder if you have forgotten something with all the extra storage. Enjoy it and keep us informed on the quality issures. We have had ours since end of October and have found no issues whatsoever. I really feel the QC on the '04s is really evident - even in our early '04 produced coach.

Bob

Thumbs up Congrats Eric!

It's B-U-T-ful!

Does this mean you don't have to try to steal my jacks anymore?
