Question Forester info

This post is mainly for the Forest River rep that reads here..We are looking at buying a new Forester,First When will FR be manufacturing the 3011 DS in the GTS model? We found a Forester just like we wanted,would have bought it if it would have not had the large nose.!! Second, if we buy a FR product and there is no dealer in our town or within 200 miles ,how do we get warranty service..??BTW we are partial to FR and are on our 2nd one..Thanks for all..

I did learn that RV Wholesalers do have warranty people all over the country which includes my area...I will seriously consider buying from them when the time comes..They are in Ohio..

There are no plans to have a low profile front cap available on the 3011 or any of our traditional C's.

If you're looking for a closer dealer to do warranty work you will need to establish that with them and our warranty center. If you are going to an outside service shop you will need to clear it with warranty.

Hi Tbonz...just wondering why you don't want the cab over bed on the 3011. We use that area for extra storage for light weight stuff (blankets, towels, kids bags, etc...and the extra bed is also nice.

Since we recently traded a cab over bed style for a "mini" cap I'll give you our reasons. We had a Sunseeker MBS 2400W with the cab over bunk area configured as the optional entertainment center. Now we have a GTS 2800 QSF with the "mini" cap. I prefer the "mini" cap because:

1. The forward view without the overhang is outstanding!
2. No roof gutters draining rain runoff right in the center of the cab doors.
3. Less wind noise. And less wind drag...maybe a little better gas mileage???
4. We don't need or want the extra bunk.
5. It just looks better IMHO.

The downside: The cab over bunk style, at least when configured as the entertainment center as in our MBS, did offer much more storage space than the "mini" cap does in our GTS. It doesn't help any that FR blocks off a large part of what could have been used for storage in the GTS cap. But we have plenty of other storage spots...

Both options work, we just prefer the "mini" cap...

RedLdr1...I just sold my Class A Diplomat with the full "vista" windshield. It had a great view but driving into the sun sucked. I really enjoy the cab over as my extra visor. I really like the look of "mini" cap over the full cab over, sleek and sexy.
