Our 23FB is an International and the sliding doors do tend to open while traveling.

Flying Cloud 19, 20, or 23D

Find a round rubber tapered stopper (like a cork for a bottle) that fits the hole in the door, push it in before you travel. Problem solved. Found ours at a big box home improvement store.

Curious whether you are still actively looking, and whether you checked out the FC20 next door to you in Scituate?

Thanks,

Peter

None of us would fit in the bunk. Well, Tessie would! The dog. Just don't want to much Airstream when it's just me! That is single handily my sticking point. We love tents... Thanks again! Jaime

MY 2 cents worth. Is the kitchen layout and copious counter space and larger bathroom/shower worth it? Absolutely!

Two peeps and now only the one dog. Sure...one partner needs to crawl over the other to get out of bed in the middle of the might. I simply get out of bed to make way since I sleep on the dinette side. The bed makes a nice and cozy area to watch the TV ....accentuate the positive ; ) and cooking dinner together in the kitchen....doesn't get any better.

Can't see more than two peeps regardless of the dog count. Bailey (62 lbs) lives under the table ( waiting for the” picture from the AS door” to come along) and Gracie (9 lbs) when she was with us, lived & slept between us on the bed. We're 6'4" and 5'5" and fit fine...even with Gracie. We realize we're not at home or in the old pop-top with a queen bed....but we're also not on a 20 "wide ensolite pad at Bernice Lake....we've got each other, heat, cold bee/ice and an inside @#$'r!!!! Life is good.

There are certainly numerous arguments for AND against the 20 & I can understand the negatives ... but for the 3 of us...the 20 rocks, tow's sweet & and fits in to spaces the longer units won't.

Thank you to everyone!

Thank you to everyone who replied and weighed in. It was incredibly helpful. We did look at the 20 FC in Scituate. It was in incredible shape and I LOVED it. We decided to go with a 23D new Airstream. We were concerned about not having a warranty; especially b/c we are new at this and not super handy - YET!. We've decided on a 2017 23D International Signature. Would have gone with the Flying Cloud but we were not able to get one as quickly. I am so excited. Now I'll be stalking the "what do we need" threads. We will definitely reach out to the local Airstream community and hopefully make some new friends. If the response to this post is any indication of what lies ahead... we are very grateful to have ended up sharing your passion. Fingers crossed. I'm hopeful my family loves it as much as I do... or I'll be stalking the "solo full-timers" boards in no time! Thanks again. Jaime

Congratulations in the new 23D, nice Airstream! Largest of the small Airstreams it is a compact version of the larger rear bed models, which is a good traditional layout. Will slip through the air and down the road nicely behind a variety of tow vehicles.

Jck, brilliant decision. The 23 is a good all around sized trailer. I have been very happy with mine.
