We're getting close ~ quick question

Hi there, we have finally decided on our length, we're going with a 27' instead of the 30'. After a couple rallies and especially after touring many AS's at Alumafandango, the 27' is the better choice for us.

Ok, here is the question ~ we now really like the Signature model of the International. Does anyone who has the dark interior have issues with the dark wood getting scuffed and marks showing easily due to the dark color? Does anyone who has the dark interior wish they had the lighter interior like the Serenity? The Serenity is our #2 choice but, I think colors will really "Pop" in the Signature. All thoughts welcome and appreciated.

All this stuff (tow vehicle, airstream model) is a compromise. We changed our minds several times in one day trying to reach a decision. In the end, we chose a Signature over the Serenity because the window in the bathroom door reminded us of a boat. Go figure! Love the thing. Probably would have loved the Serenity too, maybe because of the nice lamps above the setee. Go for the one that makes your heart pound harder than the other one. There is no wrong decision when is comes to owning an Airstream.

We have the 27FB Signature, almost exactly a year and probably 45-50 nights in the trailer. We're, if anything, rough on the interior not to mention a rambunctious puppy. No issues what-so-ever with the interior as a matter of fact my wife raves about the faux leather in regards to the dog. Any spills or stains wipe right off.

Anna -- one thing we have noticed with our dark wood interior is that little fingers (B) do leave smudge marks on the wood finish which is easily wiped off with soap and water. Similar to that of smudge marks on a touch pad device. Did that make sense?

We went with the Serenity because we thought the lighter colors made the trailer seem so much brighter and roomier. My husband said the darker Signature felt more closed in to him. I guess it is good they give choices.

You're going to love it regardless of the interior.

We love ours headed out this weekend for a little wine country action.
