New 27FB Options

Does anyone know why the Flying Cloud and International 27FBs are getting new options like the rear hatch and just announced bunk bed; yet the Globetrotter is not?

I really don’t know but wondering if the Globetrotter having fixed back cushions around the wall have something to do with it.

I found this yesterday on the Airstream site while looking for it and the Tommy Bahama brochure. Click image for larger version

I wonder if the Flying Cloud and International 27FBs are targeted at families with young kids (price point, bunk beds, etc.) and the Globetrotter target to the older set.

Options

Where can I find info on available options for different models? I don't see anything on the AS website.

Suza, Airstream does a poor job of showing the options.

If you look at the brochures they’ll show “STD” for 99% and “OPT” for a few.

In summary, depending on models, the only options are solar, 50A service / 2nd AC, convection microwave and on a few, rear hatch. Maybe I missed something else?

Thanks . . . . . I see there is an option for solar, although only 180w, with AGM battery upgrade. But no Lithium option.

I would prefer fewer std and more optional to pick and choose what you want. I realize this would slow "mass" production, but so many standard options only forces people to pay for things they might not need/want.

I agree 100%

Suza, I agree and I think many others would too. I hope Airstream does some market research of what potential customers (and current owners) are really looking for.

Perhaps the new production facility has the flexibility to handle options like Lithium batteries and more solar right from the factory. Other companies have found ways so why can’t Airstream?

For example, our 2019 RAM pickup has a factory spray-in bed liner. The trucks come off the line with a painted box then goe to a dedicated Accessory line where the bed is sprayed. Easy-peasy.

Hey, it’s 2020 not 1920.

Good idea, as long as they get it into the Accessory line . . . . my husband's cousin recently purchased a Ram 2500. Window sticker listed spray in bed liner as an installed option, but there was none. Cousin noticed the charges and asked about it. The dealer tried to avoid the issue; since they'd already paid for the option, he wasn't willing to discount the deal. Cousin said, "Not my problem. You should have checked this before accepting delivery." In the end, the dealer had to have the bed liner installed at no charge.
