I put a screen that fit on my 16' and at the suggestion of my dealership I kinda bent/worked the edges out and it works prettygood. I'll try to get a picture today if I remember. I have the same one in my 2015 20'.

Brian,
I looked at some 25 FC FB twins currently on some dealer lots looks like they have the same panel as Feather has. I'll work on screen this weekend. Have you started on your Westward journey?

Fred,

Airstream must have made a furnace change in recent days. I guess Lucy is one of the earlier 2015's.

We have not left home yet, but are planning to try to depart next Monday or Tuesday. New Lucy is all ready to go. Our hold-up (as usual) is trying to get our house ready for company while we are gone. Having a house at the beach is great, but we get a lot of visitors while we are on the road in Lucy. Accordingly, we have to leave the house clean when we take off. We already have four sets of company coming in the next two months.

I plan to start a Lucy trip thread in the next couple of days.

Brian

Is it just the furnace door that is different, or is it a whole different furnace?

Lucy got a new tag number today. I have taken the tag from our 1956 Ford and have had it assigned to Lucy. This saves me about $100 a year while keeping this low number tag assigned to us.

It's not as bad as it sounds. The rule is "leave it like you found it" as we usually have several sets of guests at our house while we are out on long Lucy adventures. Everyone complies, but we have to get it decent for the first group coming in.

Brian,
I have the same issue as Fred. Not sure when ours was built but we bought it in March. It does not look like there is an easy way to put the screen on but I will pull cover off tomorrow. We just set up camp for the weekend in Point Lookout State Park in Maryland and I will have all day tomorrow to tinker.

We bought New Lucy on October 2nd, 2014. I'm not sure how long she had been on the dealer's lot. New Lucy's VIN ends in 531020, and I believe that this number is sequential by date of manufacture. New Lucy was probably one of the early 2015's.

Twin Beds

I am looking at a 2011 FC25FB with a queen bed. I would like to know what is involved with replacing it with twin beds? Has anyone taken on this task, with suggestions. Thanks, Ralph

Making this change is somewhat complicated in that it would require the relocation of the converter and removal of the drawers under the short wardrobe. It would also require refinishing of the floor and reconfiguration of the outside storage locker. Some wiring would have to be moved and a nigt stand cabinet would have to be built.

None of this is impossible, but would be somewhat costly if you had to have the work done.

We have had both the queen and the twin configuration in our 25FB's. Even though we prefer the twins, the queen is great also.

Brian

Thanks Brian- guess that answers my question. Too complicated and expensive. I'll keep looking for a twin FC.
