Been a reader for a couple of years but joined as a member now that I am an owner. Drove off the lot this past Friday in a new 2017 FC25 RB. My wife and I (and our two children) couldn't be happier. I drove straight from the dealership in Gulfport, MS to our favorite LA State Park, Fontainebleau. We had a wonderful 2 night stay in our new FC. After 81 camping trips in the past four years in our 2013 R-Pod 178, the FC is like heaven on earth. Looking forward to the next trip next weekend, and many, many more trips after that.

Couldn't be happier. We're living the dream!

Welcome to the neighborhood. Regardless if it's a 50's Airstream or a 2017, they are all unique and exciting. Enjoy the experience. See you down the road. Be safe, Bubba

Welcome to the forum and the world of "streamin". It's great to have you with us.

Have you chosen a name for your FC?

Be safe and enjoy!

With a Forums name of NCC-1701, I'm guessing the trailer's name will be Star Trek related. Maybe something like "Galileo 7½"?

But whatever the name turns out to be, owning an Airstream and boldly going where no Airstreamer has gone before is a grand Enterprise!

Good guess Protagonist. My boys named the new camper Starship Enterprise. Even have the pillow to prove it. Click image for larger version

Not terribly original— kind of like my goddaughter who named her new 2010 Volkswagen bettlebug "Herbie"— but boys will be boys.

Apologies. It wasn't meant to be rude.

Great name, glad your boys were part of it.

The Starship Enterprise is a perfect name for a long term adventure travel vehicle. Just don't charge up the photon torpedoes or phasers. It's a "Prime Directive" deal. Warp drive might be worth a miss as conservative maneuvering speed is best. Would keep Scotty on speed dial though. Pat

Heh, I tow my AS with a "Toyota" sticker on the TV.

And my three sons think our 2012 Prius looks a lot like a shuttlecraft.
