I thought someone would have posted better pictures of this by now. I did not have my good camera at the Louisville show last week so these were just from my I phone.

This Airstream has a front bedroom and a spacious rear bath with the galley inside the entry door and the living area forward of the bath. The bright rectangular object is a 65" drop down projector screen in place of a TV.

It also has power window blinds for the first time.

I would have preferred 6 tires and 4 30" windows on the Curbside but it is still pretty nicely done.

Thank for sharing. Looks like you beat Colonial Airstream for the first look!

Power shades would be awesome! Raising and lowering shades is one thing I do every single day. It would be amazing to just press one button.

But the entire rear area being taken up by the lavatory is a bit perplexing. A lavatory taking up the entire rear of the trailer, all it's great views and the removal of the panoramic windows is a silly design decision. You hardly spend anytime in the lavatory.

If they put the living quarters back there, I may have considered upgrading from my 2016 Classic. IMO a lavatory always has to be amid-ship to leave those gorgeous dual end panoramic windows available. For the views and the lighting. I bet this will be a darker trailer.

Thanks Andy for sharing the photos.

Having owned a 27FB for five years, the best feature of the front bedroom layout has been sitting in the living area and looking out the rear panoramic window at views of lakes, beaches , mountains, deserts and other beautiful scenery. I would be interested in trading up to this model if a dinette, sofa, or even better two recliners were at the rear end of the trailer with a pano window. I have zero interest in peering out the bathroom window at a gorgeous view.

As I recall many of the rear bath longer units Airstream sold in the past developed rear end sag over time. I wonder if Airstream has addressed the sag issue in the structural design of this new rear bath model.

I'm still hoping for a 30' FB with a sitting area for two comfortable swivel recliners at the rear along with a panoramic window. Until it comes along we'll keep enjoying our 27FB.

We sure like our front living room with recliners arrangement, and was kind of hoping to see a Classic 27 Rear Bed set up like what we have. We certainly don't need a new Airstream but that would tempt us.

Following the success of the new Classic, we expected a smaller Classic but they surprised us with a larger Classic.

Completely new floor plan, large luxurious bath, beautiful bedroom, dining and living room shielded from the direct sunlight by the awning, huge tv, power everything, I'm sure they have a market that will love it. The luxury motorhome people will feel at home here.

Interesting product but seems like an unusual floor plan.

From the pictures Andrew T posted it's difficult for me to understand where the central living area is located. I see something that looks like a desk (dropped down counter) with a large window above. Is this perhaps where the projector screen is located? Is there a sitting area across from this?

Regarding the front bedroom - is it queen only or will twins be available?

Hoping for more pictures or a video to better understand the layout.

Like others have said, for several years now front bedroom has meant large panoramic windows on the front and rear of the trailer with a center bath. I'm slow to change, particularly when change doesn't seem to buy any advantage IMO. A seemingly large, luxurious bath that is at the opposite end of the trailer from the sleeping area doesn't make much sense to me.

Is the trailer ready for release? Or, is this some sort of prototype? I thought Airstream was directing their products toward buyers who want experiences - travel, adventure, what's over the next hill. Now I realize they just can't seem to let go of the luxury, everything is a button click, comfy-soft-cushy market. I suppose they are hoping to serve both markets.

Nice, but . . .

Thanks Andrew for posting these pictures, but I don't think this is our next trailer.

For one it is a FB which we are not fond of, and two it is a classic.

Can't you convince Airstream to build a 34 Serenity?

Bigger isn't always better...They should concentrate on building the smaller ones better first before releasing more problems.

With all that wood.... looks like it met up with 1989 and stayed there. Not a fan.

Good point. There does seem to be something "off" about this new floorplan. I think the current 30 Classic has a nice balance between the amount of wood and modernity feel. This new one seems to envelope you with wood, especially in the lavatory area. Those wood framed mirrors are definitely out of the 80's playbook.

I think AS missed the mark with this one. Wonder why there is very little information on the net about it?
