Smile Finally official

Hello all! I am a long time reader on the site but have just joined officially. We have traded our 2007 19' Bambi for a 2013 Flying Cloud 25' rear twin and are awaiting delivery (end of Feb.) We traveled across country in 2011 from North Carolina to Oregon, our present home, to be close to Son, Daughter-in-law and Grandson. My wife and I are planning a trip with several others of our Oregon WBCCI unit this summer back to NC, although we will probably be the only ones going that far. Most recently I've enjoyed reading all the information on the tire forums as we made a decision to go to the 16 inch wheels and Michelin LTX tires for our 25. Thanks for all of the input and we'll see you on the road!

You are welcome here.

Those wheels and tires are a good upgrade. You'll really love the 25 twin - much better storage access than the queen, and so much easier to make the beds. Get out and seal your panoramic windows asap, also seal around the top of the trim rail where it meets the floor of the trailer. An ounce of prevention is worth $4K in repairs.

Have a safe and wonderful trip. And of course keep us posted.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Congratulations, we went from 2007 20 SE to new FC 25 rear bed, great new trailer with many improvements in quality of design and built. Also got the 16" wheels and Michelins.

We have been traveling with ours over 10 months total now, enjoy every minute with no significant troubles. I'm pretty strong on regular inspections, leak checking, and corrosion prevention treatment. Found one small leak below a loose lower door hinge, no trace of corrosion.

Congratulations!!! We put Michelins on our new International Signature. 27' but, didn't have to upgrade to the 16" because CanAm installed them on our 15" and we love the new tires. Some thought we were nuts to get new tires on a new trailer but, I had read many negatives about the Goodyears. Safe travels!!!
