Oh, what fun you will have, just bring treats in the trailer for the dogs, fleece blankets so you don't ruin the sofas and beds and some throw rugs and you will be set...

So what are you going to pull that thing with? I love the International interiors (not the ocean breeze though).

I was trying to figure out what the 'twin' bed layout would be... Now that i've seen that... If u ever would want to sell u think it would be very hard...

I have a 25'ccd (no front bed) so I think my bed is queen... It's great as a bachelor pad, but it's also great to take a lady along...

Now with the twin beds... To small for yourself, definatly to small for two...

Just my humble opinion..,

For now it looks like our Trusty 2003 5.4L Ford Expedition w/tow package. 88k on the beast right now, but looking to upgrade. I wanted to upgrade/update and still keep the idea of the A/S in mind.

I'm not seeing much difference between the International CCD 25' FB and the Flying Cloud 25' FB. The hitch weight is slightly heavier on the CCD and it is slightly wider by inches.

I've seen the pricing on the Flying Cloud lower. I've also seen more used options. I noticed Bates RV doesn't carry the Flying Cloud...probably, since it is so close to the International CCD.

The Deep Cycle Group (battery spec) on the Intn'l CCD is also higher.

Am I missing something?

The design of the overhead cabinets is much different. The plexiglass doors are sliders, and instead of two small cabinets, you'll have one large one. It's slightly deeper front to back too, (based on how my dishes fit). Everything 25 feet and up is a "wide body" 8' 6" - regardless of whether it's a FC, CCD or Classic. Anything less than 25 is 8' - except the sports and European ones which I think are 7' 6".

The laminates used on the tables and countertops are better on the CCD's - thicker and more carefully adhered. The Safari/Flying Cloud laminates are barely better than Contact paper.

I'm still assembling everything I need to replace my dinette table and redo my kitchen. Found the sink I want and the faucet. Have chosen the formica for the countertops. Have decided on a SMEV burner unit, and am still hanging fire over whether to go to a convection microwave. Anyone know of a reasonably priced decent one?

Oh.. came up with an idea for the bedroom too. There is an "end table" on my sideways queen that's just big enough for an alarm clock and a water bottle. No drawer, just hides some wiring. Thought about cutting a Kleenex dispenser hole on the side facing the bed - with clamps to hold a box of tissues against the dispenser UNDER the table. Thoughts?

Might put a book rack under there too. Just to hold one or two books.

Did buy my "washing machine" from www.thelaundryalternative.com. All that girl stuff that needs to be hand laundered will work just fine. I plan to stow it in the shower - which thanks to a fan placed on the floor and an open vent is already my "cloths dryer".

As far as I am concerned, you will never find a trailer that is LARGE enough for 2 adults and 2 big dogs! They are always underfoot and in the way!
We have two 80# goldens and 2 appropriately sized humans inhabiting our 22 foot CCD. We have a 2001 Excursion for a tow vehicle. We like the excessively large SUV and have removed the 3rd seat to configure that area for the dogs. The back or middle row of seats can either stay up or go down to create lots of storage space. When the seat is up there is still room behind it for crates and skinny items. My goldens would prefer to sit in my lap while in route, so we have configured a barrier out of plastic lattice and one of those removeable pet barriers. My houdinis can move the bars on the 'pet barrier' and squeeze through, but with the addition of the lattice they are foiled!
We have also created a 'fenced yard' with two four ft tall expens and snow fencing stakes and cable cuffs. It gives the dogs a secure area outside that they enjoy. And obviously frees up valuable floor space in the camper.
