I have a 25fb International if you have any questions. Ties fine with my Tundra which is comparable to the F150 (blasphemy!

There are a couple things that are optional on the FC that are included in the International, but overall you are paying a premium for the look inside--corian, lights inside cabinets, sliding doors, decor. No meaningful functional difference that I'm aware of.

PC has a couple of Military Family campgrounds. Active Duty have priority and you will not be able beat the locations or prices. Most military campgrounds average around $350 to $400 a month with full hookups and utilities. Your BAQ will more than cover that and expenses. Have fun in PC it is a beautiful area with lots to do when you are off duty.

Only advice I would offer is the need for a good de-humidifier. I camped on the Gulf and found it too cool to need the AC but the damp air was a problem after a few days

Having spent much of my mis-spent youth in St. Andrews SP and growing up in Tallahassee you WILL DEFINITELY need air conditioning!!!

Just so you know. Someone mentioned time limits in the military family campgrounds. That does not apply to active duty permanent personnel. You can occupy a spot for as long as you are stationed in the area. Check with the base housing office for your new duty station they will be able to help you get local information.

Can't speak for the Navy but the Air Force has started enforcing their stay limits. The Famcamps are MWR facilities intended for recreational purposes not housing facilities and are funded with recreation money.

There was a big ruckus up at McCord AFB because some AD folks were asked to leave. I can see this becoming more common as more and more retirees are starting to full time. Space gets pretty tight...

There are lots of exceptions, though. The Naval Construction Center in Gulfport has two RV parks -- one for AD and one for transients. Everybody's happy.

CGSEA,

I agree with your comment:

"One thing that draws me to this lifestyle is the similarities of a community, much like serving in the Coast Guard"

We are newbies to the Airstream community, but already feel as though it is a good choice, have only been to one Airstream event, but the people we met, most times without trying, Airstreamers are friendly, were helpful, fun and ready to assist in any way.

The info on this site is very helpful and the people definitely.

Fair winds and following seas, which ever way you choose.

John

Cgsea,

Hi and thanks for your service. Last summer on Airstream Classifieds I found a 2015 Ford F-150 4x4 with 3.5L Ecoboost and a 2015 Airstream 25FB International as a package deal from private seller. The truck had 9,600 miles and the AS had about 1,500 miles on it. With 365HP and 420LBsFT of torque I think the F-150 makes a great tow vehicle. And, as someone else mentioned, it is also pretty economical when not towing.

Thanks for the info Jerry, I'm looking at that same truck. I've read some great reviews about the 3.5L EcoBoost. Sounds like you got one heck of a deal. I'd love to wait around for a used one but looks like it will have to be new if I want to make this happen prior to the move down south. See you on the road!

Thanks Chief! I did check with the bases and it shouldn't be a problem staying long term. I appreciate the info. Looking forward to my trip down south! See you on the road.
