Just picked up our FC 27FB last Friday

We are so excited. We drove it to a nearby campground to "kick the tires." We love it. We will have lots of questions for advice but I'll look for the right place to ask

Glad to be part of the forums!

Welcome to the Airstream owner's community. You selected a very good model and floor layout. I think a 27 foot length is very well balanced for room, comfortable, and towing. Further, Airstream travel trailers last a very long time.

We have a 1975 Overlander 27' that is only 47 years old, see photo. For sure it is not as nice or well built as your new Flying Cloud, but still... My son owns a 1969 Globetrotter 21'. Too small for my tastes but he enjoys it.

Best of luck on all your travel adventures.

Welcome from New Hampshire!

Hi - Welcome from New Hampshire! Glad to have you with us!

Congratulations on your new rig! Such an exciting time getting your new baby and the camping season is just starting. You'll have so much fun!

There's lots of great people on the forum that are willing to help answer questions that you may have. Don't know what your camping experience is, but we started in the driveway and graduated out to something close by. That helped us get used to how things worked and what we needed to bring.

Enjoy the Adventure!

Wow - those both sound amazing! When we picked ours up, someone was doing work on a 69 Bambi. It looked great.
