I think I have your solution.

Mount a hitch ball to the back of one of your trailers. Gut the other one, polish all of the interior panels to a mirror finish, and turn it into a rolling, walk-in closet. Then you can tow your "closet trailer" behind your "living trailer."

No need to thank me for this brilliant idea.

Hi, was that a Brilliant idea, or bright idea? "Polish all of the interior panels to a mirror finish." Now you have the elusion of having double the wardrobe and double the wardrobe space, for half the cost.

Or you can do what I did. I put some of my clothes in a tote and put it in the back of the truck and change them out when I want something new or different.

Good storage ideas. I like the walk-in (sleep-in) mirrored closet idea though.

What about those space bags that you suck all the air out of and flatten for your seasonal or seldom used clothes?

Can you turn your bed front to back and put in a smaller double bed against one wall of the AS and install a closet and dresser on the other like they used to do in the older 25' Classics as an optional floorplan?

I know one of the differences is the emergency window in the bedroom between the 2007 and 2008 models. They removed the portal window below the emergency window and (i think) installed a larger emergency window in the 2008 model.

We looked closely at a 2007 and that's the only difference I can find.

Don't let the extra space around the bed, larger closet and pantry with microwave option tempt you.

Or maybe I've been tempting myself.

So, I was browsing on rvtraderonline.com today and saw a 2009 FB CCD, it was a 25, but the ad didn't say that until I opened it up. There it was... new upholstery in sort of a robins egg or turquoise blue - against that deep brown interior. Sigh. Tempted, tempted, tempted.

Now at $30 per yard for good upholstery fabric 54 inches wide - plus long zippers for the couch cushions , plus heavy duty thread.... Yes, still a better deal to buy that one 2007 I saw for $54 and spend a week reupholstering the dinette and the couch, but oh my bleeding hands! Getting the cushion INTO the cover is a pain in the tookus as a one person job.

OK, OK, don't get all excited. I'm talking myself down. Easy, easy.

$$$$

Of course for a $16K (list) difference I could HIRE someone to make the covers for me.
