New Owner from the PacNW - Hello!

Hello! We bought our '17 23FB Flying Cloud in October and finally got a chance to take it on its maiden voyage this week to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

So far we love it, but I'm admittedly thinking of a 25-27' in the future. But that would require a new tow rig... ;-)

Anyhow, hello! A please to make everyone's acquaintance!

Welcome the the forum. And congrats on your new trailer and your maiden voyage.

We originally looked at a 23' but when we found a used 25' FB Twin we went that way.

Is your TV a X5d?

Wishing you many safe and happy traveling miles!

Welcome to the forum! FYI there is a new thread dedicated to your 23FB model:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f142...um-166374.html

We almost got the 23FB but ended up with a 20' FC.

Cheers,

Peter

Maybe that's where they went on their maiden voyage and posted?

Welcome to the board. There's a fairly large contingent of folks here from the PNW. Did you know that your profile is displaying Arkansas?
You can change that here

We're just hitting a few RV parks in OR this week! Started at Old Stone Village in McMinnville for a couple days and now we are at Devil's Lake RV Park in Lincoln City. Next stop is Fort Stevens.

We were SO tempted to get a 25 or 27, but then we'd have to upgrade our tow rig. Enjoy!!

Use the 23 for a while. Unless you really need more space, the 23 has enough room. It is so great to easily turn around, back into a site, and slide past an obstruction because you are 5.5" narrower than the bigger coaches. Pat

Yep - it's an E70 35d. Tows the 23' very well!

Congratulations on your new 23. Hope you enjoy it as much as my wife and I enjoy our 20. Just returned from a 4 day trip to Dorago State Park on the Columbia between Wenatchee and Chelan.
