Glad it worked out. You can change colors for each season and mood, along with your lighting options!

Air streamer observations 23 fb

I met some northern Virginia chapter wbcci
folk at the Urbanna oyster festival a couple weeks ago.
Salt of the earth people.
When I saw those boys from the blue ridge
chapter rolling in with their 91 excellas
and ram diesels.
I said to myself this is the pro adventure crew here.
With folk like that and cowboys like
Ray Ecklund. You know your in good company.
Im glad to be a part of it.

Huge difference.
What difference did you notice. I have a 2000 Tundra in great shape with 103,000 miles, but do wonder about the shocks. They are probably original.

BOTH of those butcher block mods look terrific. I was thinking about something oval to make the entry and the two interior corners even easier to maneuver around. I don't need "dining for four" which AS seems to be so intent upon. Might be a few more bucks for that kind of customization. Then my thoughts are to make a thin filler top so I can still put it down into a bed if ever needed. Anybody know: Does the table stand drop low enough that the table top can lower to 1/2 or 1/4 inch lower than the bench seat platforms? I could then just put the filler piece on top of the block and flush with the seat bases, and it would be sturdy enough for a bed.

Tundra shocks 23fb

P.C. to answer your question on my shocks.
I noticed a slight bouncy feeling on road dips.
First I thought maybe e2 hitch with 800#
bars was the issue.
After going over that,I realized the are a great match.
Had Toyota replace all 4 with oem crew max shocks and it rides very controlled and smooth.
Probably could have stepped up to TRD
shocks.
We have (6) tundras for our business .
They are great! But we break them.
Just like airstream they are great.
But nothings perfect.

Go to your User CP on the left in the blue menu bar above, Tom. The info under our user names is set somewhere in the various drop down menus within the User CP, but I forget the exact steps. If you have trouble, let us know.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

23 fb lounge/bed conversion

P.C. the answer to your question on bed conversion with 24x24 1 inch thick
butcher block Dinette top.
With pedestal in compressed position.
No filler required.
Slight 6 inch soft spot at lower left calf area.
Bed is fine,no issue.
Im testing comfort on a 32 degree night here
in coastal Virginia.
Pedestal rug toasty.
Ultraleather cushions are cozy and warm.
Propane furnace-priceless!
This 23 fb is delightful in just about any weather condition I have experienced.
100 degree 90% humidity to 17 degrees cold.
Well engineered and executed.
Its like a delux suite on a cruise ship.
With a fully equipped galley.

23 fb adventure size for trailhead

The 23 fb with its modest length and width,
makes it the perfect headquarters for multiple riders/hikers at the trailhead.
It just fits in 2 parking spots nose to tail.
Specifics are:
Roomy heated and spacious bathroom.
(Very important).
Great dressing and prep area.
Perfect lounge for all important ,after beer.
With great sound system and stereo.
All on coach batteries.
One easy and capable package for this use.
I use my coach for this frequently.
Pic attached is unit parked at Jamestown
visitor center.
Just putting use info out there for folk not familiar with this platform.

23FB vs. 23D Forum

as of today: Number of Posts Number of Views Last Post

23FB Forum 445 39,141 11/28/2017

23D Thread 827 62,578 12/29/2017

Either the 23FB crowd are happily content with their units and have nothing to say, or are complete slackers, or.........................

Maybe we should merge with the 23D, if they will have us.

No idea why the traffic difference. Maybe everyone's happy? The 23FB, with its queen bed, offers a particular charm. We may not downsize in the end, but 23FB is the only model in this size class that we would consider.
