Thank you everyone for your input and suggestions.

Just an update. Because I am not retiring until August 2015, I did not want our new FC 25' FB with Twin beds delivered until then.

I approached both my closest dealer and also several of the largest AS dealers in the US - all that had favorable comments from the Air Forums. After unsuccessfully trying to work out a deal to take an existing dealer 2015 preorder and modify it to our option list, as recommended by some of the guys above, several of the dealers recommended that I look at placing a 2016 order.

I was a little uncomfortable shifting to the 2016's since the FC revisions had not been announced (even though the largest dealers said they expect only cosmetic changes to the FC) and the price increases had not been announced (most are assuming 3% increases). But I got comfortable with that after seeing several of the quotes.

Based on a combination of a very competitive price with no haggling or "new car salesman" pressure/tactics, no hidden purchase costs, the dealer being in reasonable proximity to us, and the almost unanimous glowing remarks from Air Forum members for this dealer, I ended up going with Foley RV Center and Airstream of Mississippi in Gulf Port, Mississippi.

The comments, information, and advice from the Air Forum members were invaluable in helping with this purchase.

I will update everyone in August after picking up the unit.

Thanks again,

Mark

The build date for our 2016 Flying Cloud 25FB (Twin) is June 19. So far the only change I have heard about is that the AC ducting outlet is being changed to spiffy aluminum controllable/directable outlets.

Foley has exactly what I want RIGHT NOW..... cept it only has 1 a/c and I would prefer two..... booooooo. Can't seem to locate a 2015 with 2 A/C in a 27FB Signature anywhere.

Also waiting on 2016 pricing from them. I know everyone just had their big meetings this past week, so hopefully by Monday a lot more 2016 info will pour forth upon us all

Colonial Patrick is reporting a 5 1/5% across the board price increase. Going to have to pay premium for the new layouts, tech and factory enhancements.

I've heard 3.5% not 5.1/5%. That's what my dealer told me to expect on my ordered 25FC.

I currently have a 30 ft 2015 flying cloud but have a 2016 classic on order from Foley RV. Ron Lester at Foley is a fantastic guy to deal with and is a class act. I rarely use both air-conditioning units in my current airstream. Ducted air provides a more uniform and efficient air distribution and a single unit might well serve your purposes in a 27 ft. Send me a pm if I can help.

My gut tells me that you best chance of finding this size unit with dual air might be from a dealer in the south or southwestern part of the country. My dealer places his orders based on what the owners want in this part of the country where one A/C unit services our climate quite well. I remember that after the 15K air conditioners became available as an option, he started ordering the 15K units on his longer trailers. Maybe southern dealers, especially in the locales that reach 100+ order dual air units for their inventory.

We are glad we ordered the 50 amp and dual air conditioner option. Loading out at home on a 95+ degree day is easier when the coach is cooled by both units running.

Based in the Phoenix area and travel the southwest in the summer.
