FP Rep at Jax RV Show
The short story is we met Jon Pagano at the Jacksonville RV show last weekend and he was great answering our many questions.
The long story is we've been looking for a small Class C for about a year now and have winnowed it down to a Forester 2291 or an Forester MBS, R or W. The problem has been actually finding the gas 2291 to compare to the MBS versions here in Central Florida as no dealer close enough actually has one for us to really see. We want the small C to run up north to visit kids and because we need a workable kitchen to accomodate dietary issues, so we ruled out a Roadtrek or similar RV. We managed to miss the Hershey show last fall and the FL Super Show in January. Finally at the Jacksonville show a dealer had a Sunseeker 2290, the twin of the Forester without the upgrades. While looking it over, Jon Pagona popped in and introduced himself as a FR rep, at which time I started rattling off my many, many questions that numerous young and old salesmen haven't been able to answer. Man was he knowledgeable!! After while he began answering my questions before I finished asking, and often would elaborate with a backstory or how certain systems had evolved or changed. He even offered reasons why things were as they were, such as what options were or were not available, why the 2401W had no personal storage in the bedroom or over the sofa and why the Chevy chassis is not presently available. Anyway, that settled it for us and we're about to place our order for the gas model. If you need or want informed, straight-forward information without the sales pressure, try to find an FP rep. Hopefully they are all as pleasant and informed as Mr. Pagano
