Ordering new FCC 25

I am ordering a 2014 with window awning, 1000w inverter, convection oven, and front twin beds. Only other option I would like is 16" wheels and tires. Anyone done this or even possible?

Thumbs up

Thumbs UP for the 16" wheels. You can do it later if your budget won't allow it up front but better to do it now if you can. You won't be sorry. Also Awnings all around will be a welcome addition for camping in warm climates.

ENJOY. See ya on the road sometime

16" wheels/tires are not an option. You would have to have them installed by Airstream after your trailer was built. You will get no credit for the 15" - you'll end up with both.
