VERY EASY ANSWER ! IF you happen to Read what it says under the picture.
The residential faucet is an UPGRADE, meaning you received a standard unit. Some dealers order basic units with out all or sometimes any options so they can low ball other dealers. The order sheets dealers use to order from have many ways of ordering any model. Some most dealers like to use the factory package upgrade so they can sell a "loaded" models at a reasonable price. Others buy the same model with only a few more popular options and can price them lower than the packaged model. If the buyer is not paying attention he will get what he thinks is a great deal till he gets it home and starts really looking and comparing. Sorry you didn't notice what you actually bought.

I have not actually picked up the unit yet. The two units pictured were both fully optioned forester mbs'.

You are wrong. These are standard features on all mbs models. The brochure marked 2017 continues to show a navigation system. Is this truth in advertising?

Brochures are always behind production for just about any RV manufacturer. There are constant rolling changes throughout the year. Everyone's rig is always just a bit different.

Well, I guess if a different faucet bothers you that much, don't buy it!!

Your comment was not helpful. There is some expectation of getting what you ordered when putting down thousands of dollars and waiting over two months. There are many other changes noted below that I was not notified of until the unit showed up at the dealer. A publicly traded company like FR has a fiduciary duty to their customers and shareholders to provide updated information and not withhold or mislead consumers.

NO Dyson cordless vacuum
NO Soft-touch padded vinyl ceiling
NO tile back splash on stove
No glass shower door
NO navigation system

I would be upset too and knowing this, I would definitely be reluctant to ever order a unit. So sorry this happened to you, can you reject the unit and put the deposit on something else?

If you would of started out with all the 'missing' items perhaps I would of understood why you were so upset over a cheap faucet. And if all these items were on your original order then they should make it right or give you your money back.

I did update the community about those issues in the post below. This post was to question how one of two of the same 2017 mbs units would use a non standard kitchen faucet.

Just ordered ours - Any Sunseeker 2400w or Forester 2401w owners out there?
