You may also wish to try St. George Island State Park near Apalachicola. It is very quiet, clean, and fairly close to East Point where one may purchase fresh oysters from a local provider of Apalachicola Bay Oysters. We liked the proximity to historic Apalachicola. Check out the Richard Bickel gallery where he has copies of his photos and books for sale. Jim

Thanks Brian and Jim for the information on RV sites and some very interesting places to visit.
Need to get back on the road.

Brian and Jim have given great recommendations. We have a reservation at the state park on Cape San Blas for a week in August. Both that park and the one at St. George Island are extremely popular. They are all about the beaches. Appalachicola is not to be missed. As Jim said the oysters are the best.

If needed, custom twin mattresses can be made much longer (perhaps 8" on the 25FB as the Classic twins can be over 10" longer). Also 10" thick will work with the night stand.

We went with the Rocky Mountain 8" twins on the 2014 Classic as I lacked the height measurement at the time. This year we may order 10" thick and about 8" longer. We went with the 10" Rocky Mountain in the 23D and that is really great!

Michelin PSI

Hi Brian,

What PSI do you run in your tires? I understand that there are 2 schools of thought:

1) per the Michelin tables based on actual weight

2) max sidewall pressure (80psi) to reduce inter-ply shear but a much rougher ride

We have the exact same rig a you and have followed your experiences closely. Thanks in advance for your input.

We initially ran 80 psi in the 16" Michelins on our 2016 Classic per Airstreams recomendation and immediately started popping interior rivets. We dropped to 65 psi when we got a trailer tire pressure monitor system and have popped almost no interior rivets since, despite more miles since. The TPMS has not indicated the trailer tires are getting hot due to excessive sidewall flex, so we think we are OK at this pressure.
