I just did a little research. The 25RB has the upper refrigerator access panel with the little. The 25FB does not. Go figure.

I guess that is due to the microwave/convention oven in the rear bed front dinette 25s. No microwave in the 25fb over the fridge even if you only have the gas oven. I guess they can't lower the fridge because there is too much stuff under the fridge to move in the 25fb.

We are camped in SuEllyn's Dad's yard. We have full hook-ups here. We're here for SuEllyn's Dad's Birthday. He will be 97 tomorrow. Our fourth son and his family are also here.

Am I correct that SuEllyn's father was 70 when she was born?

SuEllyn said that you are correct, Gene.

New Lucy is now connected to city water and sewer. We have only dumped gray so far, and systems are working properly. I sure do like the new digital tank and battery monitoring system. I also like the little green light that shows that the water pump in turned on.

Noisy Refrig fan, Should I buy an Airstream?

Love this forum. I wonder Brian if your 25 FC has a different frig arrangement Because you have front bedroom and we have rear bedroom. We are both 2015 25ft FC. The post about a quiet bearing type fan is great. We will definitely look into that. As a previous poster said we have the grid type panel on the outside by the frig. I am on fire about the noise. We have an appointment in Eugene to get a few things looked at.
In reply to the couple looking at a future airstream. I would talk to other owners and I wonder if you can rent one to try it out.

Refig.

Brian, Just read your post. I replied before I saw this most recent note. You are quite a detective. Where did you find out they are different?

I use the Colonial Airstream Website to check things like this. They usually have at least one of each model Airstream in stock with lots of pictures. I just look for the model that I want to check out and look at the pictures. That is how I determined that a 2015 FC 25 rear bedroom has the upper access to the refrigerator.

Colonial's Website is a much better reference than the Airstream Company Website.

This is our third Airstream and our second 25FB. We have spent almost 1,400 nights in our 25FB's. It's a great floor plan that is very livable. We traded our original 25FB for a 23FB. After 10 months, we traded again to go back to a new 25FB.

Hello Deerhunter1; welcome! we have owned 3 25' AS's. First was an 06' Safari which had great L shaped couch, separate "booth style" dinette, but the bed was only 48" wide and wife didn't like the bathroom configuration. We then owned a 08', which had twin beds, however, it was converted to twins, and they were only 30" wide, uncomfortable, and we wanted newer LED lighting....so we now have owned a 2014 25' FC, Front Bed Twin for 6 months and love it! Twins offer 34" sleeping area each, and plenty room to dress comfortably between them. For us, this works great! The new rear bed model has a microwave above the fridge and that is a nice feature; we elected to just go with the gas oven vs the convection/microwave option. I do miss the microwave a "little" and like the rear bed model for that reason. They did a nice job including the microwave above the fridge plus you have a window in the bathroom, and a little more counter space in bathroom. Reason we did not get the rear bed model is a lot of camp sites we use have "back in" type requirements and the view is out the back. Now that we have our FB, we notice the front bed is not such a big deal, so get the one you like best! We were lucky; when we went to Bay Area Airstream Adventures, they had EVERY model in stock, so we spent hours looking at all sizes, models, and configurations.... As others have stated, the 25' is nice, easy to tow, and you can get in most everywhere. We have considered the 27' and 28' also...the 27' has more storage than 25, and 28' has "everything" I "think" we want for full timing! But then the 30' starts looking nice and then there was the 33' Pan American with garage! For now, I think were ok... One last comment; AS vs other RV solutions....we have owned 4 trailers and a Class A motor home....nice thing about the AS trailer, you don't have to bring a tow vehicle, and you can hook/unhook pretty quickly and if you have something go wrong with a system (rare) you still have the ability to "live" in it rest of your trip (most likely) without sending the RV to the shop and renting a hotel...like we had to do with our motorhome couple times.
One last thought...if you can get to an AS dealer with great selection, like Colonial in NJ, I would make the trip an "adventure", and go spend time in all of the models! ....we never get tired of exploring the new AS's!

That is sage advice. We have owned two 25FB's, a 2005 and a 2015. In between, we owned a 2012 23FB. We thought that we would like the downsize, but decided to go back to the 25FB.
