Thanks, but you folks tell me, I do not think we can tell exactly what we are getting into without looking at the exact size we would be buying. My experience with boats is that every couple of feet made a big difference in livability.

Cool! And yes, last weekend of April a few years ago we did misfire on the hope for a great spring outing -- eight of us did do a full dinner in the back of our 25' FB during a sleet storm. I don't have any pictures of the wheel wells -- and no, I don't need new axles.

I do not have that many friends so I do not need to worry about it. But, you AS folks seem to be very friendly. Might be a wayto make some friends.

Exactly. We started looking at a Bambi, noticed the wheel wells on the 23, did a lot of math to confirm towing and load capacity. The 25 was doable and it is perfect for us.

Did it!

Aftermath, thank you for the referral. We went over to Raleigh, looked at the Serenity and bought it. Should have it ready in a couple of weeks!

You'll love it!

Congratulations! You're gonna' love it ... and it looks like a reasonable price, so you got a bit of a deal to boot.

Now, just stick around the Forums and we'll give you more advice, such as what tools you HAVE to have with you at all times, where you MUST go to camp, what mods and hitch are just totally NECESSARY for any Airstream, etc.!

But you know, every so often, I wish I has those extra two feet that you just got, or wish I had the bedroom up front, or wish my trailer was actually seventy feet long, etc. Then I just shake my head, hitch up, and go somewhere. And almost everywhere, I'm happy with what I'm towing and that it's not the backpacking tent I used to always use!

Enjoy!

Yes, the space is a step up from my cruising sailboat, which was 32, but a boat has less living space with a cockpit and a pointy end. I have already gained a wealth of information from this forum!. Thanks

Larry,

You are going to enjoy the new trailer. We love our 25FB and it is perfect for us. I would love to have the extra awnings and the solar feature on ours and perhaps will some day. I am glad that I was able to help you. We looked for a couple of years for ours and ended up driving 5 hours to get it.

Take care, perhaps our paths will cross one of these days.

Dick
