Welcome to the Airstream community. I think you're gonna really enjoy your new rig. You can travel the country in comfort and safety. There is a lot to learn, but it comes in little bits at a time. Lots and lots of people have traveled with Airstreams for 75 years. You're gonna really enjoy your new rig!

David

Well welcome to the airstream community!

We purchased an almost new 28' FC last spring and could not be happier! Our unit is a 2013 version but I thinking there will not be a big difference from yours. We went with an Eco-boost F150 with a max tow package as our TV and have been very content with it's ability. Having a well suited TV is important to us as we travel a lot. So matching your TV to your trailer becomes more important than if you only move a few hundred miles annually.

We spent the extra $$ and put a ProPride hitch on... After chocking on the price for a while I'm very happy I spent the extra $$.

Good luck and enjoy your new adventure

Cheers
Doug

Is putting cart before the horse a good idea? Is this a good deal on the cart?

We pick up the AS next week now we are on the hunt for a reasonably priced but secure storage lot for it. Man, storage isn't cheap!

I forgot to mention that the AS comes with a weight distribution hitch and stabilizer bars already. I dunno what brand hitch it is though.

Whoof. Ain't that the truth! It's priced like premium boat moorage. Our indoor storage in Portland is $9 per foot per month.
