Thanks for response. Can you give me any insight to these new floor plans?
We had a 2010 3121DS, which was a great layout with a large bathroom, only thing we would change was to somehow have more counter space. We found the Forester was a good level of quality and options compared to the Sunseeker and other brands for what we used it for. We loved the rear view camera thought it should be standard feature for all motorhomes. I added a second camera attached to the rear roof rack(point to the front). This was very useful when going through gas stations/campgrounds which would just clear the air conditioner. Would have been easy to add at the factory as an option and monitor supported multiple sources for cameras.
We rented a motorhome in Europe (built on Ford Transit diesel manufactured in Italy) for a month and liked a couple of things we wish was in the motorhomes here:
-Shoulder straps for passengers in rear (travelled with young teens). Also nice to have the high back dinette seats.
-Larger windows (our Forester MH seemed dark after coming back). Although the mechanism was kind of funky.
-Builtin bicycle holder that folder down without interfering with hitch, have not seen anything like that here. Came from the factory there. Was easy to load and unload bicycles as well.
-Driver and passenger seat that spun around to give extra seating inside (like some class A)
-Builtin small table that clipped to the outside. Could seat 4 easiy.
Will Forest River build something on the Ford Transit chassis now that is coming to North America? Similar to the Sprinter, but I assume cheaper.
Sorry for the rant, this will be our 3rd Forest River motorhome. Didn't mean to side track this thread either :-)
