I am perfectly in agreement with DoubleR on all points, in respect of our 2016 Flying Cloud 25 FB Twin.

Also, the FB-T refrigerator does not require a fan for ventilating; as I recall, the RB-T needs a fan -- something else to listen to.

Bought new 25 ft Flying Cloud front entry in 2014. Went with the twin bed format for the added storage, which is significant. I would qualify that, by adding you do need to stay with the front entry and not go to the rear entry. If you go to the rear entry the front storage is accessed behind the gas tanks, which is a real pain. We use the trailer quite a bit and would go the same way again. If you desire a double bed go longer. The 25 ft front entry model with twins is a sweet combination.

I should ad that if you need to access the hot water heater for say a leaky bypass valve, it is rather simple in that you only need to remove the playwood panel under the mattress of rear left bunk.

Do you mean to say, the FB is longer than the RB? My wifes objection was the FB door, being in the rear, required more walking to get in and use the bathroom!; so this time with the 28', we have a front door access which makes it all seem less stressful!

Isn't the shower floor space smaller in the 25RB than the 25FB? Doesn't the 25FB shower floor have the wheel well cutout area that gives you some more foot space?

The RB has a full length bench along the outside wall (over the wheel well). There is plenty space and we don't find that this affects standing as the bench is under the curve of the roof anyway. We do, however, appreciate the extra space (counter, storage and standing) in the lavatory. The window allows natural light and is a surprisingly positive addition to the space.
