We pick up our 2014 FR Forester LE2252E tomorrow. We looked for quite a while and when we saw this unit it fits our needs as we wanted a smaller MH. We traded our 5th wheel on this unit. So this will be a very different experience for us.
I could not find any posts relating to our type unit and wanted to check to see if there is anyone has one that would like to share their experience and opinion about it. I am interested in hearing about any modifications or suggestions. Thanks, John

I think the model numbers are 2250 and 2251 which might be why you didn't see 2252 talked about.

We are in the market for a new RV and have pretty much decided that the Forester 3121DS is the right fit for us. We have never been RV'ers before and know very little. We'd like some information from owners of this model regarding their satisfaction and problems encountered. We are looking forward to taking to the highway but are very unsure about many things such as warranty, service, custom building, altering basic features such as the bathroom/shower features. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

One thing to know right off the bat is (I believe) FR stopped making the 3120 / 3121 lines.

Is there any known reason as to why they may have discontinued that line? The dealers that I have talked to said that the 3121DS is their most popular model. Is there some way to contact the factory to address this question if indeed they have discontinued this model? The 3121DS is the only model of RV that we've found so far with an adequate shower facility for us with bad backs. Thanks

Go over to the Sunseeker sub forum. Look for a recent thread there entitled "changed floor plans". Look specifically for posts by bclemens as he is a rep for FR.

The short answer (as I recall) is that I don't think that floorplan was a top seller nationally or at least as popular as some of their newer floorplans.

All that said, aside from bclemens posting here every so often on his own time, your best (official) conduit to FR is through the dealer.

I believe these floorplan changes are fairly recent so you might still be able to get a 3121 special ordered.

As for your other questions...

We have a Sunseeker 3100 so can't comment specifically on the 3120.

Warranty: There will be problems with any new unit. But, at least from our perspective, FR has done a great job doing whatever to make it right. I am sure you can find horror stories from certain owners. But I believe the vast majority on this forum are happy campers.

Service: We live in Ohio & bought from RVDirect in New York. I don't recommend that for you being newbies. Equally important to the MH itself, IMHO, is that you buy through a great dealer. They will help acquaint you with the unit, answer questions, fix problems. I would suggest you check out the dealer review sub forums on this website & Google search your dealer name with the word reviews tacked on.

Customizations / Alterations: FR doesn't do a ton of this. They have some options. But it's mostly stuff like trading out a dinette for something else. I don't recall hearing about a lot of changes in the shower area. As I mentioned in my last post, I would run any proposed changes by your dealer & ask them to work with FR to see if it's possible.

A couple other thought: I would suggest you read not just this sub forum but also the Sunseeker sub forum. You may or may not know, but the two units are virtually identical. The Forester just includes some nice-ities as standard. But that will help in your research too. Also, you can use the search function with 3121 in this sub forum & 3120 in the Sunseeker sub forum to get to specific posts about the unit you're considering.

Good luck!

We have 2012 3120 and love it. My wife especially likes the side isle and 3 long windows. Just like any RV you can always find things to personalize and make it better. Biggest change of many I made was to put the couch on a slide so it can be moved rearward while traveling so my wife can comfortably ride in the passenger seat.

The 3121 layout no longer exists on the FR website but maybe they will special order one. There are still a number of new 2013 and 2014 (7 Foresters and 8 Sunseekers) on RV Trader .com in a quick search so you still may be able to find one close to you. Not to push you to another brand but if you have to have the large bathroom there are other brands like Jayco, Winnebago, Itasca, etc who have similar dual slide, side isle, large bathroom layouts. Variations of the layout have been around a long time so a number of manufacturers still have it.
