2019 Classic 33 have powered twin beds?

We're considering purchasing a Classic 33 2019 model later this year, and despite always thinking we'd never go the twin bed route (we're only 50 haha) we are leaning in that direction due to several advantages (e.g. more outside storage, less cramped walk-around at end of bed, better look, more closet storage, etc).

One thing that's not clear in our research, however, is whether the twin bed configuration has the powered head area on the beds. We know it's powered if you go Queen configuration, but am just not sure if that is the case with the twins. Not a deal breaker for this configuration, but still am just curious.

BTW, I really love this forum!

Thanks for any insight!

Yes, we have a 19 twin 33. The power for the beds is on the wall at the foot of each bed. There is also a control panel for lights and fans on the underside of the locker over both twin beds.

We had the same thoughts about getting twins. We are 43 and 34. But the queen bed in the classic is very tight at the foot when down. you have about 6-7” of clearance. Nearly impossible to walk around when down, and we are smaller people. You can shimmy past but i can gaurentee it’s gonna scratch the walls up overtime from pants buttuns.

Most photos you see are with the queen bed up which gives an illusion of room that’s not there.

OMG that is awesome, and thank you so much for the info and thoughts! I think raising the head just a little may also help minimize my snoring too!

We are a bit older with a 30 Classic Twin beds. Extremely comfortable, storage is a BIG plus to consider for a multitude of reasons. You can overcome any other thoughts you have in mind at your age!!!

We have the 2018 33' Twin and are happy with the storage space and the central isle convenience from which we benefit every day in the AS. On the rare occasion when 'other thoughts' present themselves (we are in our mid-60s), then the twin set up can be a bit of a challenge. Especially at those times I think about perhaps building a sliding panel under one bed that will span the space and hook onto the other side to allow the two mattresses to be slid together but have not yet implemented that plan.

Weíre about the same size as when we were in college, and it was never an issue in my tiny dorm room twin bed, so I think weíll be ok.

I see you have a 2018 F250 King Ranch. Done any mountain towing of the Classic 33 with it? How well does it fair, and most importantly to me, what is the payload rating on your specific truck?

In this same vein can I add a powered bed in my 2006 Classic? Haven’t had much luck with search on this. Thanks

@jhess i have a 2017 F250 diesel platinum, nearly the exact same as a king ranch featurewise. It tows great. Have a propride hitch which after dialed in it’s easy to forget i’m pulling something. Don’t remember the limits off the top of my head.

2019 Classic 33 have powered twin beds?

We are not in the 2019, 33 foot category but we did upgrade from a 28 foot international with a queen bed to a 31 foot classic with twin beds for the reasons listed by the original poster. I will say that it was one of the best moves we ever made. We love the extra storage. The aisle way in between the beds gives an illusion of a bigger trailer. And we are in our 70s but the other thoughts thing is not a problem. The twins are fairly large.

Also, if you get a chance the payload rating should be on the sticker just inside the driver door frame. Thanks in advance!

I think IKEA might make something that lets you add a powered head, perhaps. Or maybe some other company. Donít know if thereís anything Airstream-specific or if that would be required.

Greetings Jhess,

I see you have had your question answered several times over already..... but for what it's worth, I did want to let you know that 'your rationale' listed above for wanting to get the twin floor plan was EXACTLY the same as ours when we were looking. We've had our 2018 Classic 33 Twin for 18 months now (was 51 yrs old when we got it.....HaHa.....) and thus far, we have used it 154 nights and 13,000 miles. We have absolutely no regrets on getting the twin floor plan at all, as our reasons (and yours) for getting a Twin, were 'spot on' observations and have played out just the way we thought. We love it.

Good luck with your decision(s).


Cheers.

@wv2017 Thank you so much for that reply. I still like hearing from others, as it reinforces our thinking. Glad you are still very happy with the choice!
