Bought the 2013 FC 30

A while ago I had to cancel the order of new 2014 FC 27 because my wife was having a second thoughts on the floor plan. We resort to looking for different floor plans and came across on the one that we love and bought it right away off one dealer's lot in Missouri. I picked it up last weekend. The travel was a bit hairy because of the inclement weather occurring on the day of pick up a Texan chap like me is not accustomed to. We made it home safely after 900 miles of towing. ProPride was used as a WD hitch which made towing experience easy with my VW TDI with the reinforced hitch by Can Am.

We love it and happy with the floor plan. The floor plan is a bunk bed with couch in black UL. It came with inverter, all windows awning package, 2 TVs, convection microwave, and nothing else. The price is good (at least for me), I got it at 23% under MSRP.

I have a few mods to make, starting with lighting (which is in progress). We prefer warm white color for lighting (around 3000K).

I like your choices of floor plan, black ultra leather, Propride, and tow vehicle. Price sounds good too. Enjoy it!

We almost bought the 30 Ft. instead of the 28 we did buy. We just did not have room for the extra 3 feet in our storage building along with our tow vehicle.
Congratulations, nice trailer.

IMHO I think you'll very much enjoy the 30' over the 27'. We traded in a 28' for our 30' FC primarily due to a significant improvement in the casual seating in the longer trailer. Congratulations!

We started with a 2013 25FB International Serenity. We then ordered a 2014 Classic 27FB. We discussed that the last 15' where the dinette is located was identical to the 25FB. So we spent the $3,012 difference in list price to change the order to the 31' Classic model 30.
