how oldest is Patrick Botticelli with colonial Airstream in Lakewood New Jersey is a special air forums edition of the YouTube walkthrough video today. I wanted to show you the all-new 2017 Airstream international signature 23d some more exciting things that Airstream did for improvements for this model year is now standard on 23 D and 23 fio2 - 25 75 r15 load range d Goodyear marathon tires the hub's now are - never Lube hubs and upgraded the brakes from 10-inch to 12-inch.
I also notice to the bottom trim here is black vs. pewter and we have the by it's all aluminum entry step flip the top down here that's standard on all 23 and up internationals flying clouds the 19 foot model will have a tule aluminum step versus the steel step in the sport will still have the steel step you can see here the frame up front is also black versus pewter just makes a little bit easier for an Airstream owner to touch up their frame with standard paint they could buy at a hardware store versus a special pewter color that Airstream uses this trailer is already set up with the equalizer hitch system this is an aftermarket accessory that the customer that owns this trailer decided to put on air she also added the zamp solar plug does it quick disconnect that hooks up here batteries here. So, you could put a portable panel plug-and-play plug it up to do is buy to this amp portable paddle kit plug it right in you're ready to go this is also equipped with the optional window awning package very popular zip tease awning all sunbrella material aluminum arms aluminum Hardware riveted into the frame structure it's very durable material for outdoor use ladies big tinted 30-inch wide windows their awning style windows that come out it says extruded aluminum gutter rail over the top of the window you see underneath the trailer it's completely enclosed and aluminum tanks are heated standard on all Airstream trailer trailers to me today and it's insulated also equip this trailer with the optional bike rack this is a dealer-installed option that you can put on still allows you to get to the rear bumper storage still lift it.
I can still get in and. I could still get to the rear trunk makes life a little bit easier, if you just fold the carrier down obviously, if the bikes are on it's going to be a little bit more challenging to load and unload the rear trunk and open up the rear hatch here is lockable insulated weather sealed new power cord and this is improvement makes a little bit easier for a customer unplugged their trailer at the campground and it has an LED light that illuminate to let you know you have power coming into the trailer this rear trunk is diamond plating inside has access to your low point drains and even has a light air off to the side LED light and see how when it's closed when you push down on the lock it actually squeezes it tight. So, you don't have to worry about any water getting into that compartment beautiful international medallion on the back of the trailer above it is excluded aluminum belt line protection that protects that center seam of the trailer got a license plate bracket cast aluminum tail light housings a little beautiful look at the fine tooling here on the edge LED tail lights polished aluminum rear bumper has bumper caps and ends so, if you go to pull a power cord by you don't have to worry about fraying the end of the power cord on sharp metal this is equipped also with the optional backup camera which comes with a monitor for inside your vehicle it's a wireless monitor up on the roof of the trailer now we have a solar port that allows us to hook up the samp solar panels for roof install a little bit easier to drill a few holes in the roof still need the hardware you still need the controller and the display, but just takes one step away from the technicians window and aftermarket installs let's take a look inside this trailer interior decor on international signature is going to stay the same for 2017 we have here the oyster ultra leather, but it's also available in espresso which is a color very similar to the ebony cabinet color and the salsa which is a reddish tone it's extremely popular right now one of the improvements in the bedroom they refined this had roller shades in the bedroom next to the bed they refined it with an actual curtain mechanism this unsnaps slides back and then it has these little straps here take a Velcro and we roll over and bed you want the word bit unraveling the roller shade and having that pop up in the middle of night also to all the curtains were improved for 2017 they now have a blackout lining.
So, when you close them you don't get that much light through as you did in previous model years systems all stayed pretty much the same you have LED lights inside the trailer they're all dimmable for the ceiling lights you have access accent lights inside the cabinets here subwoofer underneath the dinette storage here this is a some of the stuff that came with this trail, but this is the optional voyager digital wireless LCD monitor for the backup camera look at beautiful faucet this is uh this is residential quality Grohe faucet is all metal. So, there's no plastic this is built to last a very very long time. I know a lot of RVs for cost reasons they use a plastic faucet, but this has a very high duty cycle recently Airstream added a lot of key hooks and hooks inside the trailer to.
I to hang additional items that are going to bring with you excellent thick stainless steel sink don't have to worry about, if you a pot or pan slips out of your hand and dent in the bottom they're very robust this little sink cover some people use it as a cutting board as well there's storage below the sink got a waste pile below to sink as well and this is a good area. I want to bring our customer into an Airstream trailer and they say they assume maybe that this might be parking board because it's covered. I bring them over here and.
I show them the edge grain of the plywood the shown that we have laminate on each side not stickers and you can see the pocket hole screws construction which is very stable very strong joint Premium Hardware scabbit elapses designed to really keep this door shut when you're telling on the bottom here they put a piece of aluminum as a toe kick of storage here below the oven this is all premium hardware as well these are detachable hinges as you take the little caps off you can adjust it, if the cabinet was ever at a square you could make minor adjustments there very spacious oven is a gas oven standard on this model also standard microwave on a 23 d, but colonial likes to upgrade it to a higher grade microwave that also has convection built into it. So, literally it is a electric convection oven, but also is a microwave you decide which mode you want to put on this landslide zout it makes it to a bed for 2 adults there's storage below you have a battery converter charger which converts AC to DC charge your battery has all your fuses and breakers the bottom portion is the charger portion. So, there's a fan that will kick on periodically to cool that compartment propane leak detector down here on the ground refrigerators 5 cubic foot on this model with freezer above this is cut out here purposely for a taller container it's an automatic two way runs on gas or electric you just turn it on it's on automatic right now it was checking to see, if we're plugged into electricity it's in the determined that we are not plugged into electricity and it's automatically going to switch to gas, if it misfires on catch which it will because we do not have gas in this trailer currently the check light will come on and stay on you could also manually run it on gas, if you decided not to use electricity these are the windows we saw from the outside, but inside view of them television get on to bring it out at different angles, but you could also swing it around.
So, you could view it from the bedroom and this is hooked up to the blu-ray player that comes standard that's in the front cabinet this play CDs DVDs and blu-rays you have USB charge ports next to it you have a USB input for your stereo which plays CDs as well this trailer comes standard with a 1000 watt inverter system. So, there's an inverter outlet you can switch your blu-ray player. So, you could run it off the battery system temporarily there's inverter outlet under two dinette there's inverter outlet next to the television ya wardrobe at the foot of the bed colonial includes with every purchase an RV starter kit with a lot of hoses adapters accessories you'll need get going for the first time wardrobe has a light inside of its led now the kitchen pantry comes with the silver organizer another pantry storage you decide you decide what you want to put in this compartment here utilize it for kitchen or bedroom items cooktop ventilation system with lights there's a vent on the outside you could open three burner cooktop.
I don't jump around here. I'm just very excited today is a new 2017 just got it. I wanted to get the video this one's actually already pre-sold, but.
I wanted to get this online before they whisked it away to get it to prep heavy duty cooktop grates here inverter control get operate your water pump from here you can check your battery level your fresh water this actually is full of water it's ready to go gray waste and black waste all from this monitor panel right here this little cutout here is for the furnace you have a storage compartment here low to lounge, if you lift up this cushion there's little access hatches for some of the electronic controls for maintenance two speakers below the roof Locker in the front subwoofer we saw earlier this trail has ducted air which is a new feature for the 23d for 2015 well it's carried over to the 2017 model year such a huge success last year these are directional you can shut off individual item vents, if you wanted to fantastic fan in the galley comes standard with one in the bedroom as well these fantastic fans has motorized lids rain sensors variable speed controls detachable screen. So, you clean the blades off and they are just lost only skylight in the galley with shade these are intakes for the air conditioning the bed has storage below comes with little storage containers when you buy one new pillowtop memory foam mattress this is 48 inches wide by 76 inches long room flock or over to bed as well as all the roof lockers are very deep and they're backlit you have a reading light over to bed two more speakers little magazine rack porthole for the bathroom doors that allow some light inside we have another wardrobe here this is the little tool to operate the awning outside there's access hatch here to get to the water pump for winterization sea air stream is smart because they put the hardware here. So, a technician all.
I have to do is pop it open they could get to it some other RVs well get the water pump you got to take the whole wardrobe apart or some furniture pieces apart just to get to it that's additional labor it cost you, if you need to repair or winterization maintenance privacy curtain separates this area from the living area so, if you needed to get dressed in this area you can do. So, and the privacy curtains are different colors depending on what interior decor you get. So, this is the international signature decor to get the Flying Cloud which will have the gold alchemy it would probably be a tan and then there's also international serenity has a high gloss white finish.
So, the privacy curtain would be colored accordingly another thick gauge stainless steel sink and designer faucet while medicine cabinet more storage above we have access to your GFCI reset for your electrical outlets gas and electric water heater controls. So, you just pick which source you want on the red light will come on only, if the water heater misfires on propane we have your bedroom ceiling light switch with dimmer. So, we have a bathroom light switch we have a vanity switch and we have your indirect switch in the rear cabinet carbon dioxide detector in the bedroom storage below like vanity the bathroom here we have a porcelain toilet with foot pedal flush furnish ducts.
So, this area is heated little towel bar toilet paper holder we have stacked porthole windows with an ocean air roller shade two-piece thick heavy-duty fiberglass shower enclosure it's two-piece with a nice two inch overlap seating off the Weber water rolling behind or coffee maintenance Moen shower diverter to tap the showerhead with pause feature there's also drain plug. So, while you're in tow you don't evacuate the water out of your p-trap and get tank odor inside the trailer roll away shower door clips in this shower door we've been using since 1998. I know it sounds and looks flimsy we have never replaced one yet.
I've had one in stock in our parts department for a very very long time haven't had the opportunity to sell it to someone. So, that tells you something that people are not freaking these when you roll it back it's got a squeegee built to it that rolls all the water off the shower curtain and runs it down the drain a little seat ledge inside the shower here so. I'm inside right now you can see how much room.
I have left to take a proper shower it's also a clothesline in the shower bring this across flips in and you just dial it in lock it in place where you need it and this is good for drying bathing suits or light items. I wouldn't recommend putting heavy towels on it that's not what its intention is and this pops up push the, button and that allow you evacuate stale air and moisture from the bathroom and for high capacity this area is left open. So, you can use the fantastic fan to bring a higher volume of air out of the shower so, if you're one that likes a very very hot shower well.
I'd recommend using this fan versus the fan that's over here smoke detectors in the galley all the windows are safety glass fire extinguishers by the entry door and then this little cutout here well that's the store your shoes right when you come in that comes with a beautiful waffle mat here you have an electrical outlet right by the entry door little cubbies here that open up to gain access to the storage behind. I've seen many air streams throughout the years come through the dealership. I've been working with Airstream for 14 years now.
I do love the 23d floor plan. I love the big open front here. So, as long as you're okay with a little bit smaller bed and a little bit smaller toilet area this floorplan is very spacious a lot of people aren't out in the market looking for a full size SUV or full-size pickup they want to use a midsize SUV or midsize pickup this trailer is perfect for that dry weights are about 4,800 pounds and the maximum gross vehicle weight rating is 6,000 pounds.
So, it is terrible with most midsize SUVs and midsize pickup trucks this is patrick with colonial Airstream in Lakewood New Jersey hope you enjoyed this video, if you're interested in this trailer purchase please call me at one eight hundred 265 nine zero one nine we always talk about a hundred Airstream.
