New FC20 Bambi owner

Hi. Proud new owner of a 2017 Airstream Flying Cloud 20! I've always wanted an airstream and was finally able to acquire one. The FC 20 seemed like the perfect setup for two people. I really liked the large bathroom and corner galley in a relatively small trailer. I've only had a popup camper until now. This is definitely a step up. Looking forward to exploring the forum.

Congratulations and welcome! The 20FC has a unique floor plan, the galley/kitchen is large and two people can cook at the same time and you are right, the bathroom is big enough. It tows easily and there is lots of storage. We have a 20FC group here on the forum....come on over and join us

Another Coloradoan welcomes you to the Airstream community. Good choice on the Flying Cloud 20FC. You will like all the comforts it provides. And it is easier to handle and store.

Congrats from Oregon! We also have a FC 20' and just love it. you're right, it is perfect for two of us travelling relatively lightly. We just got back from 900 miles in southern Oregon then back to northern Oregon where we live. We cooked in it nearly every night and the galley makes in convenient. We will never fill all the storage but like having the reserve. We are pulling ours with a 2017 Chevrolet 2500 Diesel which is certainly overkill but pulls the hills, up or down, very safely. I got 17 MPG running 70 MPH on the Interstate. We love our 20!

Currently pulling it with a 2004 Nissan Titan 4x4 with the heavy tow package. It's an older truck but has low miles. I'm the original owner and drive a company car most of the time. The Nissan is kind of my weekend vehicle. May consider an upgrade soon. Would like to stay in a 1/2 ton truck. Considering another Titan or perhaps a Tundra. So far it seems to tow fine with the 1/2 ton but haven't put many miles on it towing. I know my milage will be terrible. The early Titans have a 4 speed transmission. I get about 14 mpg not towing. I believe the current Titan transmission is a six speed.
