Hello,

I have a 2022 GT 23 feet in order. Can someone tell me the frame width? It is for ordering a rear hitch…Thanks

I have a ‘22 GT FBT. I’m not clear what dimension you are looking for? The 23’s are 8’ trailers, not like the 25’+, at 8’6”, if it helps.

Glad you got an order in, several folks had theirs cancelled when the 23 GT was discontinued in Feb.

If it is possible the width between the two frame! And yes I am very fortunate because I think I will have the last one built this month….

I’m still not sure what information you are looking for, but maybe a photo of the rear of my rig will help.

If you open your bumper compartment you should see the ends of the frame come out from under trailer for the bumper to fasten to. He wants the distance between them.

Frame width of Globetrotter

If your ordering a Torklift receiver I just installed the X8001 on our 2020 Globetrotter 27FB Twin. Great fit and easy install.

How long did it take for your hitch to arrive from Torklift? I just ordered one last week and work just a couple miles from their Kent facility so picking it up when ready.

Ok, thanks, I think I understand now. The inner bumper compartment doesn’t have any frames. But looking at the pictures for the Torklift X8000 and X8001 on their website I see how this would work. I’ll get underneath with a tape measure tomorrow.

FWIW the bumper box is 61”, inside, left to right.

I believe the 23CB has been discontinued. The 23 GT is still being produced.

The only 23s available now are Flying Cloud and International 23FB. No more corner beds and GT starts at 25'.

If the sides of your bumper box are 2-3" wide tubes like most Airstreams they are the frame. If they are less then 1/4" thick or angle then the frame doesn't go into the box. Maybe they changed it in new trailers.

Looking up from the ground upside down, underneath the bumper compartment, stretching a tape measure between the two vertical pieces of steel which resemble ‘rails’, I get approximately 61 and 1/4 inches in between the two ‘rails’.

These two ‘rails’ are around 1/8” (?) thick, and cut at a 45° angle. But there’s nothing else I can see that’s vertical that you would horizontally bolt a hitch support to, so I assume this is it.

My rig is a 2022 Globetrotter 23’ Front Twin, picked up 3/28/22 at Colonial.

I’m surprised that Airstream has decided to cut back on the 23 foot models, particularly the CB model. We considered it and ultimately chose the FB because the bed is too small in the CB. That said, I like the interior lounging space in the CB and I know it has many supporters.

The 23 foot trailers are an interesting ‘tweeter model, situated right between the small trailers and the large trailers (although it’s technically a narrow bodied, small trailer). They are typically towable with a 1/2 ton truck or large SUV, and I’ve heard that many people buy a 23 as their first Airstream. That was the case for us! We would have purchased a Globetrotter 23FB if one had been available during our search, but the International was what we found when we were looking in early 2020.

My guess is that the Airstream marketing department knows what sells well and what doesn’t, and they are adapting their offering to meet market demands. The RV market has been so crazy for the last couple of years that it makes sense to take a hard look at the product lineup and focus on high sales/high profit models.

I dunno.

There was some speculation when this was noticed in February, in the thread below. All traces of the GT 23 were pulled and folks with orders were called and cancelled.
