Just came back from our nearest Airstream dealer (State Line in Lebanon, ME). I have been interested in them for a while (and have been lurking here for a while- you are a very witty bunch).
We were overall very impressed with the Airstream as a product, especially comparing against many of the other brands on the lot of a comparable size to what we would like. I liked the looks of the International but my hubby was partial to the Safari.
Forgive me if I am repeating an old thread, but my question is: How would you rate the fit and finish, or the fine details of the Airstream? There is no doubt that they are sturdy, but my husband is a car afficionado and appreciates details. When we were checking out the International CCD he actually cut his finger on a corner of the interior aluminum that was raised. While the interior aluminum looks nice, we noticed the raised edges in every trailer that had it. I have to wonder why Airstream didn't make the junctions nice and flush.
Also, the doors on the overhead storage area on the International CCD seemed to be just cheap plastic, very flimsy. And the accordian style privacy door didn't close properly.
Everything else seemed to be very well made and well planned.
Does anyone else have any comments? Is this just something we noticed, or that was particular to the 2006 models?
Thanks for giving me my daily grins
