New here - 21 Airstream RV Flying Cloud 23FB

We just bought a Like new 21 Airstream RV Flying Cloud 23FB ( never camped in) and are very excited about this one! years ago we had a Bambi 19 and loved it.. it seems like this one has a lot more tech and upgrades from then.
It does have a few options as well ( solar ) what would you recommend are the must haves?

Congratulations and welcome!

RDgarage, congratulations on your new to you FC23FB! Itís a great upgrade from a 19í. We had a 2018 FC23FB before moving up to a 27í Globetrotter (twofootitis x 2).

As for upgrades, check out the FC23FB thread. Itís up to 97 pages.

Since youíve already had an Airstream Iíd recommend taking it out and find out if thereís anything you donít like before upgrading. I made a new Curly Cherry dinette table top for ours because we found the factory table a little tight when seated. Youíll find things with use!

Good luck and happy camping!

Congratulations! We went from a 22’ Sport (Bambi) to a 2020 23FB FC and love the extra overhead cabinet space in the dining area.
First thing will be to secure the racks/shelves in the pull out pantry. A wire tie on each end will do the trick.
I added eye bolts to the punch-outs on frame in front of the rear bumper, to allow securing the trailer in high winds. (This required turning some hold down augers into our Florida sand.) It’s more likely to surprise an inattentive thief than to save us in a hurricane, but I tried. The eye bolts also can be used to anchor the ends of a cable lock to hamper entry to the rear bumper, but not worth the trouble in my opinion.
I installed a Techole DAC between the DVD player and the JL MM50 stereo head for movie and CD sound. The DAC is powered off the JL, so it is not always on. Also, an Oontz “sound bar” to an upgraded (for audio jack) TV. In the entertainment center cabinet, I added a Weboost powered off the 12 V wiring that feeds the USB ports. (I pull the power cord on the Weboost between uses.) While I was at it, I added a twelve V outlet.
On the battery box, I switched the compartment lock to a flush CH 751 lock to allow hauling things on top the battery box (five gallon waste tote).
If you are attached to broadcast TV, you may need to do something with the antenna. It works for some others, but definitely not for us (TV or radio).
We have the propane fridge, and consider a remote thermometer to be a must. Someday I’ll get around to improving the airflow over the fins on the back.
We always carry an induction cooktop and portable table to minimize indoor cooking.
Probably way more than you wanted to know...
With those additions, I think we are ready to face whatever we encounter once we hit the rod again. (Can’t come too soon!)
