25-27 are great sizes! Were keeping our little 19' Bambi for several years but we both fit in the corner bed so as long as we don't gain any weight we will be fine. I've heard the twins are nice for peaceful sleeping but we still prefer the one bed.

We would love to do the rally, but the logistics would make it pretty hard on us.

It's 1900 miles each way!

So we had dinner and cocktails it it every night this weekend. Just love the extra space!

We haven't got to sleep in it yet as the previous owner removed the mattress and put in a futon that neither of us care to touch! We order a Sleep Number bed, Short Queen with radius corners, from Camping World. As luck has it we caught the last day of their "Cyber Week Sale" so it was over 35% off! Now we need to find a place for linens and a Duvet / bed cover for RV short queen with round corners...

The tires are dry rotted and mix matched, the rims are badly curbed so we bit the bullet and ordered 16" wheels and Michelin LTX tires.

It took a good 9+ hours of cleaning on Saturday to get it cleaned up. It had been stored the past few years in a dirt lot so it was DIRTY!!! We are lucky enough to have a place to store it indoors so hopefully we'll never have to do that kind of clean up again!

Hopefully we'll be able to take it for a shake down run soon!

You are gonna love your 25' FB!! We have a 25' with corner bed, but it works for us, including the scottie dog who will not sleep anywhere else but with us. We love our AS, but have two friends with the 25' FB --and we are just a little jealous. Someday…..
On the other hand, we've had 8 people seated inside for meals a few times. Can't do that with just any floor plan!

Yes, I think we are going to really love the extra space.

I received a tracking number yesterday that the Sleep Number mattress is on it's way. With any luck next weekend we'll get to sleep in the Airstream for the first time!

The new tires and wheels arrived this week, that will be my instal project for Saturday!


Our boys have taken to the extra space as well!

We have had a 29', a 30' and a 28'. We now have an '07 25 FBSE and love it. The queen FB is perfect with added memory foam and a good mattress pad. We have modified and added 5 extra drawers, more shelves and other helpful additions to make our storage and travels easier. I just finished making new drapes for the dining and bedroom.
You will enjoy your rig for a very long time.
love your pups...so cute..
Safe Travels

I just got them on ebay, typed in "Sendel T02" and hit search.

I felt a little silly after I got the tires though, I thought I was getting a go deal from tire rack so I ordered them. Not until after they came in did I remember my my wholesale account with transamericanwholesale.com sells tires too... (I buy and sell a lot of Jeep and 4X4 parts) I looked up the tires and sure enough they stock them in the size I need and they would have been $150 for the set cheaper and free shipping Oh well that was a $200 lesson!
