Options-Forester 3011DS

Would you chose the smaller fridge and the pantry and the U shaped dinette or would you go with the larger 4 door fridge with ice maker and the regular dinette. I have to have the pantry space. I don't see anywhere else to keep food staples like cereal, canned goods etc without it.

We are just a couple with some larger dogs who will occasionally travel with a few friends and family. We would love the recliner option, but not sure we can do without the pullout bed in that spot for the times we travel with family. If anyone has the recliners and can speak to their comfort or the comfort of the sofa bed, that would be helpful with our decision as well.

We are hoping to order in the next week or two. Any other suggestions or thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks!

We have the 3010 with the 4 door fridge. With all of our other campers the fridges were always way too small. This fridge has more than enough room no matter how long our trips are. We store all non fridge food in the cabinets above the sofa. There's also the cabinet down below near the sink that holds spices and some smaller things. Most of the time it's just my wife and I, but when we have company you can't go wrong with the large fridge!

Thanks for the response. Do you also have the U-dinette? I've never had a U type. Do you like it?

We have a 3051S with the dinette and a pantry and the 4-door fridge-all standard on this model. We love the big fridge and especially the ice maker. Would never go back to smaller or to buying ice every couple of days.

The pantry is vital too.

Look at the 3051S. It's a really livable floorplan.

So jealous of the trip!! It's coming though. Bruce retires in a few short weeks. I'll still be working but hope to be able to work from the road some days.

How comfortable is the couch to hang out on at night and watch TV. We are used to our recliners. We are getting the rotating chair option as well.

We had to have the recliners. The couch is brutal to sit in longer than 5 minutes, which makes the couch good for only one thing. ... A pull out sleeping area.

We do have the u shaped dinette. It has plenty of room. Might sound funny, but the thing I like most about it, is that the table rotates to where you can get to the upper cabinets very easily.
You asked about the coach. I like the newer coach compared to the jack knife style, but it's still not the greatest. I would prefer recliners, but we do occasionally use it for a bed.

We had the couch for our 1st long trip, I he replaced them with a LZ Boy reclining love seat. This trip we love to watch TV in them, sometimes nap in them😄. As stated by another poster, the couch is brutal to sit in. Get the recliner option.
