Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Congratulations on your new baby. The 25FB is a great floor plane. we have had one now for over ten years.

As you head out on your first Airstream Adventure, remember that this RVing thing does have a learning curve, but it is not launching rockets.

If you should have any questions, please ask.

Brian

Welcome to the cult! We had a 25 for two years before trading up. It is an ideal size for most uses. We wanted a little more space and our Safari had recliners but no dinette so we had to eat off of TV trays. That got old after a while.

If you didn't receive a copy with your trailer, get/download a copy of The Newbies Guide to Airstreaming. It is a very good book for first-time RVers and Airstreamers. If you have a tablet you can get an e-book copy.

Welcome!
Have fun!!
Tanglewood is a nice campground for your first time out. Easy access. Take exit 182 off of I-40.
Wondering which tow vehicle you ended up with? Remembering your post a while back about the F150 for a 20' or 22', looks like your plans for trailer size changed.

ps: I think you made the better choice!

Welcome

Hi,
Congratulations on your trailer and enjoy your first trip. I am sure you will find things that you wish you had brought, but you are close to a number of stores to get anything that you may have forgotten.

If you like NC BBQ and want a night out, Little Richard's is a good place close by. The original location is 4885 Country Club Rd,Winston-Salem, NC Great Lexington Style BBQ, cooked all night on their grills over hickory wood. http://www.eatmopig.com/

Tom and Deborah
