Anxious For our 2016 FC FB

We finally bit the bullet and moved up from our 2010 FC 20 to a 2016 FC 25'FB twin. Bought the trailer at Airstream Adventures in Fairfield, CA., they had 80-different Airstream configurations in a large warehouse there, I was impressed!
My wife sent our new Baby to Ultimate Airstreams in Oregon just south of Portland. They are going to replace/enlarge the dinette and add more cabinetry and large work surface/buffet top (we lost about 45 inches of our lounge). We did get a two piece dinette so that half the dinette area can be made into a lounge area and the dinette will still seat three.

We also had a Micro/convection built into the cabinetry and kept our gas oven (my wife always uses the gas oven when we dry camp).
We upgraded the batteries to 2-6V AGM's taking advantage of the deeper battery box coming out of the factory these days.

We'll get our baby in another two or three weeks, hopefully before Christmas.
I will post pictures when we get the rig.

Sounds amazing. I'm always impressed with the pictures I see of the work they do at Ultimate. Post pictures when it's all done! Love to see the work they did.

Are you going with the 25 Grand Lounge Gourmet conversion? How much lead time does this company need to start the project. How long will it take for them to complete the project?

Thanks.

Kelvin

Stuart, over at Ultimate is most helpful he told us it was probably going to take two to three weeks to complete the remodel. I called the upholstery color in today, he figures it will be back to Fairfield in two more weeks.
We are excited!

Man oh man, I want your remodeling too. Especially a change in the dinette similar to yours. (But we only have a 23'FC - don't know if I could get it.) Really looking forward to photos.

Congratulations on your new baby. We can't wait to see the pictures of your modifications. It sounds like it's going to be great.

Thank You! to all.

I followed the link to projects by Ultimate Airstreams (in OTRA15 message) and the last project is the "Grand Gourmet" 25FB. Identical to our mod, we changed the upholstery color to Taupe versus the Buff color in the pictures.

We missed the outdoor speaker install they did on the photos of the "Oregon Beavers" FC20.

I'm going to call Stuart at Ultimate on Monday and see if it's possible to add them before our Baby comes home.

Good idea Terry! Is Mountain Charley's still on Main Street in Los Gatos and still serving San Miguel dark?

Well our Baby is back in Fairfield, Ca., they're installing the solar panel and upgrading our batteries to 6v AGM's. We will pick her up on Wednesday, what better Christmas present. We are thrilled!

Did you mean you replaced the fan & cabinet with a microwave/fan combo?
