New Forester is home

So our new 2009 Forester is in the driveway. The delivery at RVdirect was fine...took about 2 to 3 hours and only found a couple of items that needed attention. Nothing major with the motorhome just little details mainly with the cleaning etc. We stopped in the Catskills for a overnight and had fun playing with our new toy. We are VERY pleased with the quality of the rv and more than pleased with the new 2008 Ford 450 Chassis. What a difference in ride and handling. So far no major complaints...raining hard today so we will see if it leaks. hehehe

You got it 5 weeks?!?!? Wow!

Yesterday we ordered a Rockwood 5th wheel at RVW. Guy said 10 weeks. Rumors on various forums say more like 6 - 8.

We're really chompin' at the bit because it's our first camper and we've been planing this, literally, for about 10 years. Like you we plan to enjoy our new toy on the 'long way home'

Neat toy.

We were surprised it came in so fast as well. Sort of thought maybe it was because some manufacturers are reporting low sales and maybe they are slow at the factory....not true according to RVdirect. They said the economy and gas prices are not really effecting the sales at all....hard to believe. This is our 4th RV but we were still as excited as kids on Christmas! Very pleased with this Forest River product.

Sunseeker / Forester are the best units Forest River produces at this time for quality issues.

I picked up our 08 Forester 3121DS on 15 Apr 08 and enjoy it very much. camping every other weekend since.
Have had only minor issues.. light switch for the entertainment center had to be replaced, small leak around the base of the shower needed to be resealed, and toilet water line froze up..was only 28deg. the only other issue is the bedroom speakers only work with the in dash stereo.
