23' fbt?

My wife and I really like the twin units but are pressed for space to store our AS so we purchased a 23 FB last year. We continued to have twin envy until recently. We like the additional room to move around and storage under beds. Also, wonderful to have the roadside exterior storage as convenient for power cord.

We contacted Brad Herring at the AS service Dept and sure enough he could make our dreams come true and within a month of our first contact we were sleeping in our 2017 Serenety 23 FBT

Our technician Brent did an outstanding job on this conversion, he is very talented!! Not to mention just a super nice guy! He was very thorough in reviewing/explaining the plan and getting our input - from lights and electric plug relocation to storage design between beds. His attention to detail and craftsmanship is to be commended.

Of course none of this could have happened if Brad hadnít researched the possibility of this conversion and responded to us so quickly! (Sorry Flying Cloud 25Ē &#128579.We appreciate the time Brad took to answer all our questions and providing suggestions/options for us to consider. His expertise, knowledge and patience is vast!

The total experience from start to finish was outstanding and we look forward to enjoying our new 23FBT for many years to come, and still park it in our carport!

Nice upgrade. More pictures please. Appreciate your posting the experience.

Hope to meet you down the road with a smile. Pat

Edit - you might post to the 23FB thread and keep track of what other folks are doing with the platform.

Thank you for the pictures. Looks like a wine rack would fit at the foot of the street side. Or? Very cool implementation. Pat
