Congratulations on your choice and belated happy birthday. We were lucky enough to start our AS adventures in 2016 when a local friend sold their 2006 23’ and we jumped in. After a few years in the 23’ we started dreaming of more time on the road (i turned 63 yesterday and I’m ready to ween myself off the work treadmill). In March of 2020, just before we really knew what the year would bring, we put a deposit down on a 2019 27’ FBQ Barcelona Blue that was bought and never used. Needless to say, we were really apprehensive about the situation when everything started shutting down, but the dealer understood and offered to return the deposit if we were uncomfortable about the purchase. They actually had to shut down before we took delivery so we had a couple months to think about it. By May we realized that we would survive and moved forward with taking delivery...one of the best decisions we’ve ever made! Our first few trips were long weekends close to home (Anywhere in Vermont is gorgeous) and then in September we sojourned to the UP of Michigan. Having the AS (Shirley) was the perfect way to travel and avoid excessive crowds, plus we met others doing the same thing and had a great time.
I’m not quite ready to retire, but I’m definitely taking a few month long trips this year, as a Realtor I can work from the road.
The 27’ FBQ is an awesome, comfortable rig for the two of us and UPS has a direct line from Amazon to our doorstep. I hope you’re as happy with your AS as we are with ours.
BTW, I traded in my 2018 F-150 Lariat Crew Cab with the 3.5 Ecoboost for a F350 Lariat (couldn’t find a 250 in August) with the 7.3 gas and it’s been a great TV. Just a bit stiff on the suspension. Since we carry a lot of toys, and have a Bedslide and Cap I didn’t want to worry about being over on the payload. I really liked the F150, and the towing capacity was no problem, but when you start going to the higher level of finishes the heaviest I could configure was just over 1800# of payload, and between the tongue weight of the 27’ and the toys we were pushing it.
Best of luck and see you on the road!!
