Calling 3051 owners!

Just put a deposit on a new 2015 (got a great deal, I think) so I'm asking all you owners for tips and things to look out for that you have run across with your rigs. Thanks in advance!

Just a warning that you're going to love your new Forester an abnormal amount. And this will lead to wanting to go on extended trips all the time. Plus friends and neighbors will be jealous when they see your RV in the drive getting loaded for yet another new trip.

I know that everyone thinks their RV is the best, but the 3051S is far and away the best floor plan available in this size and price range.

Congratulations, finally did it! Isn't that the one with the huge slide-out? CreativePart is right about the friends and neighbors!

No 3011's in inventory and the 3051 is a 2015 leftover so they were willing to deal. Wife's not a fan of U shaped dinettes either but it does have great counter space

KJcachers- What options does it have? Are you going to be able to take it out before spring?

Lots of options. Not sure what you're looking for. I can hook it up in my driveway, except the water, so I will give all the systems a work out. Unit is already winterized so water testing won't happen until March.

Not full body paint, just the lower color. All the other stuff you listed along with the 15k AC with heat pump.
