3011DS wins the battle

We've been looking at the Forester and FR3. Finally zoomed in on the Forester 3011DS Saturday. Down payment done and arranging insurance now for delivery later this week. Wanted the mossy green furniture but settled with the in-stock cream color instead of waiting.
I'll probably be picking your brains here in the new future. Lots of new technology and equipment here and a big learning curve ahead.

Yes to 3011DS

We just bought a 2017 Forester 3011DS a couple of months ago - been on three trips already. We love the coach - the layout - my wife loves the large kitchen counter - overall we are very happy with our decision. If you have the two door stainless refrigerator - don't jerk on the right door handle too hard (if it feels like the door is sticking) - cause I did and the handle broke ($ 45.00 to replace including shipping). Pull the left door open first - that seems to work better. Anyway - welcome and enjoy.

CONGRATS!!! Make sure when you go to pick it up you have a check list in hand. Make sure they fill all the tanks with water to check the sensors. My mistake on ours and been in the shop 3 times for it.
Not sure if they told you that the ice maker works on A/C only.
DON'T take the RV unless you have everything fixed!!! Once you drive it off the lot you have to make an appointment and leave it there to when they find time to work on it.

I do hope yours is way better than ours when we picked it up. not trying to scare you just making sure that you enjoy the RV and not having to take it in for repairs right after you use it for the first time.
