1 month into 1st trip.

[ATTACH]336346

Picked up a new 2019 FC 28RBT 25 Feb. Did orientation with great staff at Colonial Airstream and spent 1 night at dealership. Left next day for 3 months bouncing around panhandle of Florida. Do date trailer has been flawless. So far no major screw ups by me with our 1st trailer/1st trip.
Traveling with wife and 3 Labs; one a year old puppy. Put a wire mess crate under dinette table with leg folded up and table top supported by leveling blocks.... a life saver with the “wild one” on board.
Changing campsites once a week.... love the change in locations.
Towing with a 2016 Suburban with max tow package and it does fine. With a full water tank and all our stuff at 7200 lbs. Dealer put on an Equalizer hitch with 16 in shank and have plenty of room to open lift gate.

Congrats on your new palace and welcome to the club. Glad to hear of your successful orientation at Colonial. We are picking up our new 23FB this Thursday. Enjoy those miles and smiles.
P.S. Love your hometown up north. Fish Creek State Park is one of our top favs.

Fantastic!
That's the way to dive in!
More pictures!

Get ready for an onslaught of people claiming that the 16" shank will cause your trailer to flip end over end.

Eagletoo If you make the transit from the campsite through the channel to Upper Saranac Lake stop at our dock and say Hi. On the left side during the first straight section. Name sign on tree in shape of an FA-18.

I wish a Suburban would work for my situation; I'm interested in your experience. Have you been across mountains or through the hot desert yet?

Condo1, we will keep your location in mind next time we are “up there”. Thanks for the friendly invite.

Having any trouble finding campsites? How’s the AS holding up? Getting used to it? The more you use it, the more personalized it becomes. Lots of fun making it your own!

This forum is a wealth of info and friendly faces. There are no dumb questions.

Roll on!

1 month into 1st trip.

There are lots of great state parks in the Florida Panhandle. Some are closed with storm damage. Grayson Beach and Topsail are two favs. A little known park is Falling Waters, plus it is close to the Seacrest Wolf Preserve. Enjoy your adventure.Click image for larger version
