2017 Forester Changes
BBogey is right about the new changes, at least how update applies to my new MH. They updated the Forester line August 1st. I have on order a 2017 Forester GTS 2431S. Below is what I was told by my rep when I placed order.
Color changes are as follows:
Interior color: Almond, Cobblestone, or Chestnut
Exterior color: Mocha or Cobalt
Wood color: Weathered Teak or Rustic Cherry
In dash Jensen has been replaced with a Pioneer Sound System. There is no option for GPS Navigation now. You will use your Smart Phone map application. I was told customers were complaining about high cost of map updates on current system, so Forest River dropped Nav option.
They also replaced the panel with switches for coach lights, pump motor, tank levels, canopy, etc with touchscreens. I was told my 2431S will have 3 screens. You can also access these functions remotely with your smart phone.
They have a GTS Premium Camping Package that has most of the options you would like to have which I chose:
Smart Phone in Coach Remote System
Stainless Steel Appliances
Heated Remote Exterior Mirrors
Back Up Camera/Side View Cameras with Monitor
in Dash Pioneer Sound System
Deluxe Wood Grain Dash
In House Entertainment System with Outside Speakers
Slide Room Toppers
Ultra Leather Drive/Passenger Seating
Solid Surface Kitchen Counter Tops
Waste Master System
Painted Skirt with Partial Graphics and Fiberglass Roof
Hope this helps answer some of the questions.
