Picking up new 3051S next Friday

In May we were camping in our Travel Trailer and spent a few days in Albuquerque. One morning I needed some small part, so we went to Camping World. As is our habit, we stopped in the parking lot to look at motor homes.

We had been looking for a new TT for about 8 months and not found anything we liked. We thought about a 5th wheel, but no, not for us. And, we knew that there was no way we'd buy an RV. We actually were leaning toward gutting the interior of our TT and remodeling it completely to make suit us better.

At first we didn't see anything new in that CW parking lot... until we went into a just arrived Forester 3051S. The slide was even in. But, for the first time in all our looking my wife and I BOTH liked the same RV. That never happened before.

Then another thing that never happened before happened. My wife said "I think we should buy one of these."

CW wanted too much for theirs but, with months of looking we found a new one identically optioned at a price $11k less than CW. And today we became Forester owners.

I have a biz trip planned so I can't pick it up until next Friday. The dealership is 250 miles away, so we will inspect it, pay for it, pick it up and take it camping that night before the trip home.

Walking into that RV in the CW lot on our way to buy a part for our travel trailer really shook up our previous 13 years of travel trailer camping in a blink of an eye.

This is pretty much the same story as my wife and I. It was one we agreed on immediately upon seeing. She loves to cook and like the expanded kitchen area. We have put 21k miles on our 2014 in less than 1.5 years. We love it and have had virtually no issues. We do have to watch our weight. We weight out before we cube out. And don't park it on an incline with the refrigerator full and running. It doesn't like that. LOL
