We Did It!

Well, we go the bug and decided to trade in the 2008 23FB for a 2011 27FB FC. Can't wait to get the new trailer and begin new adventures! Really liking the fact that brakes don't need adjusting, nor bearings to be re-packed!

The color scheme is Mica, and the storage will be more efficient in the kitchen and pantry area.

Will have pics in a couple of weeks.

Pick Her Up Monday!

Well, the new "bambi" is being prepped and had a few additions, wireless wifi with antenna, and additional electrical outlet for my airport extreme. Can't wait to get the apple tv up and running with Netflix - Movies and popcorn here we come!

Will have new pics next week. Pray for good weather!

We're making the leap as well. We are trading an 08 22' Sport for a 25' FB FC. It won't be in until mid December and we can't wait to head to the Florida Keys for New Years. Woo Hoo.

Yeah!

Back home, have to take pics of the new baby, but SOOO happy!

Airstream has really stepped up to the plate. They have cleaned up the manufacturing "crumbs", nothing on the floor after a 1000 miles of travel!

The trailer's finish work is wonderful. Wood is straight, lines are correct, they even put plugs on the screws that are in the window frames. The floors under the furniture and closets are clean!

The trailer has 15" 6-lug tires and it towed like a dream. Only problem was that the 7-way plug fits a little loose. Other than that, wonderful experience. Already having new curtains made, and coverings for pillows, etc. The curtains in the trailer are really quite nice, they have changed the fabric to a very upscale satin-type fabric and lining. The bedspread and pillows the same type of upgrade.

This trailer was manufactured in August, and couldn't be happier! We leave for Florida on Friday, can't wait to get in the warm, and investigate more fun down there.

That is great news. Will check out the 7 way plug when we pick ours up. The current one is tight.
