Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions. She has decided on the 20. First thing I am going to do is change the wheels and tires to 16". Will probably get the ProPride WD and SC. It will be a little while before she is ready to "hit the road" so will have ample time to get everything in order. Grandpa may make the first trip with her just to make sure everything is ok. Really appreciate all help.

Safe travels everyone.

Unfortunately my airstream is in storage and I can't remember the exact tire size.

However you can search here on air forums and you will find it. Should be fairly straightforward.

Ok, I was able to swing by my airstreams storage place and took a picture of the numbers on the tire. See below.

Looks like a Michelin LTX M/S2 in size LT225/75 R16

Hope that helps.

Well, we escaped the great white north and are now in Hamilton Branch State Park outside of Modoc, South Carolina. Soooo great to be camping again! This is a wonderful campground which we're sharing with three other campers. On to Anastasia in Florida tomorrow.

I've been promising pictures of my mods and now that we're with our AS again, here you go...

Float pole light installation. Used Sandlappers idea of a landscape light as they are 12v. It's wired to the light switch on the electric tongue jack.

Good news! Thanks for the photos of improvements also.

Right now it is snowing here and we are supposed to get 6-8" today and maybe more in a day or two . . . yuck.

Happy Trails!

Peter

Just W of Lompoc...Holy #@$% 14 miles off 101 to get just short of Lompoc, CA...then another 14 miles due west...a buddy from Tehema who surfs Refugio each new year warned me. The drive up and down the 4 passes down to Jalama was worth it. [ Peter...bucket list for Cal/Dream 16/17...plan fr a coupe 3 days min]

The first pic is just south of Rincon/Carpenteria. Pt. Conception is off in the distance...Jalama Beach is just around the point & adjacent to Vandenburg AFB.

2nd pic: Pulled up next to a sweet 28 Int. and some friendly AS'rs. Turns out it was their maiden voyage (see ModernVista #471) and they had just swapped out their 20' for a new 28'. Small world indeed. I thought the thread sounded familiar.

Blown out the day we arrived, but the next morning...winds from the east
: ))))....tubular (last pic) ....note the vintage AS...I suspect it's there for the duration.

Nice pic! We love the 28' but still have love for the 20! She took us to great places. Wish we could have stayed longer at Jalama!

Happy travels

Chris

Yup, that clean tube was the first thing my eyes moved to -- nice!

Thanks for the photos, and glad the trip is working out. Going back north may be hard . . . I forget what is your itinerary from here? Can you picture a longer trip in the FC20 with the dogs, or did the 28' whet your appetite for more room?

Thanks for the CalDream reminder -- difficult to imagine here this morning. Our air temp is -4 F! Up to 50 F by Wednesday they say. Hoping to get in a short trip south after a new family member arrives in March.

Happy Trails to all . . .
