2019 27 globetrotter

Just looked at a new 27 globetrotter and was underwhelmed. I currently own a 2015 RB 25 flying cloud and have been seriously considering the 27 globetrotter. However, after actually spending a morning looking at it, I find the following issues: no bedroom exhaust fan, cabinet in bathroom makes toilet use VERY tight, flooring - exactly what is this stuff and how in the world would you keep it clean? Based in Southwest Montana.

(Not sure what kind of response you are looking for)

The bedroom has a fan if you donít get a second AC. This is pretty standard. I agree on the toilet and will look to see if there is room to rotate the flange.

^^agree with nryn about what responses you might want to hear...

We have a 2019 27í GT FBQ and travel in it full-time. We love the modern Euro-style aesthetic. The overhead lockers are larger than the Flying Cloud, light when open, and have mirrors in back to see contents - love this feature as I am short. There is plenty of storage in the GT for our full-time needs. The galley is what I like the most. Large Moen sink - beautifully functional stainless range - Corian top is also an easy keeper. Lots of pantry storage. Lots of storage in the drawers under the sink.

We replaced the Dometic toilet with a Natureís Head composting toilet angled to the door. There is room for us in the lavatory, but it is tight. The hot water heater lives under the bathroom sink.

The flooring is from the marine industry and virtually indestructible. My husband tracked in grease and it cleaned up with soap and water. We love the floor.

However, at the end of the day, a GT is more *spendy* than a FC...itís all about what suits your needs the best.

Cleaning the floor: vacuum, sweep, and mop just like any other floor.

We noticed the vinyl flooring material used in the GT and the Classics are the same material used on higher end deck boats. Same exact stuff. If that material can take the abuse of being out in the weather on a deck boat it should last for ever in an Airstream. Wish I could order a FC 30 RBT with that flooring.

"Do you all the second AC in your camper?"

Yes we often use both A/C's and when you need it it's great to have. But if you are camping where you primarily only have 30A service you can only use one A/C. And you forfeit one of the ceiling fans with two A/C's.

So, IMHO, it depends on the type of camping you do.
