    Thanks man. Didn't even know I could have one converted to twins. Great news as I have not seen any used ones that were twins. Thanks.

    Thanks for taking the time to share some thoughts with me. We have settled on a 28' FC or International with twins, new or slightly used remains the question. Have not seen many used Airstreams with twins, so we may eventually have to pony up the extra coin and go new. But still have some time before we cross that bridge as we are not buying until winter or spring. In the meantime we are trying to ensure we have a suitable (safe, not just what it is 'rated' to tow) tow vehicle. Thanks for sharing some thoughts with us on the subject. It's very much appreciated.

    Rich, I noticed your Screen House thread in the forum. Looking past the enclosure, I noticed your TV and AS. Myrna and I are doing our homework for hopefully the purchase next year of a used FC20. Were also researching TVs. We like the 4-Runner but had scratched it off our list as the FC20 GVWR is 5000 lbs. and at least the new 4-Runners top out at a 4700 lb. tow capacity. Looking at the spec, the 23' GVWR is 5600 lbs. Did the earlier Runners have a higher rating or is it simply that AS's tow easier and the GVWR is a guideline? Does your TV work fine with the 5600 lbs. or have you modified it to raise the capacity? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks, Bob (CruizinDux)
