If you double-click the pic, it will open up larger.

We are waiting on a 23FB to arrive at our local dealer so we can check it out.
Have kind of narrowed our search down to this model after looking at various models / brands at a show we attended a few weeks ago.
We are new to this and this would be our first purchase so needless to say we (mostly me) are a little nervous about just jumping right in and getting going.
Not sure when it is due in, but hopefully it is soon so we can make our decision and start planning some adventures for this summer.

Good luck with making your decision! We're pretty new to this as well. We had a pop-up last summer but quickly saw it wasn't going to work for us (me)! We did lots of looking, in person & on-line, before making our decision on a new TT. We've only had it 2 weeks now but it's been great fun getting it all decked out & making plans for our first trip this summer.

Wondering is you could post pics of the way you beefed up the support for the fresh water tank. As we sometimes travel unpaved roads I need to do something with the tanks.

Has any 1809s owners added solar to their unit? That's my next project and I would like to share notes.

I've been unsuccessfully looking for mattress pads & fitted sheets that will fit the bunk beds on our 2504s. They are 30 x 72. Before trying to make something larger "work", I'm wondering any of you know of a source I may have missed. Thanks!

I googled trailer bunk sheets and found a number of listings like this one:

SusanO - I did see those. Primarily what I want is a pad & fitted sheet so the mattresses are protected. With the design of the bunks, I think sleeping bags will be used on them most of the time. But, with little grandkids, accidents WILL happen! Thanks for checking!

For a pad, look at sleeping pads (ground pad) in the camping section of a sporting goods store?
