Soon to be Forester owner

Today we put a deposit in a new 3171ds. Excited to say the least. It's going to be a big change from a huge 5er and truck. Plan on selling the truck for a Jeep Wrangler toad. We've been looking at motorhomes for a while now and hopefully this will be good. Really like the floor plan and autolevel. Took it for a drive and seems pretty smooth.

Congrats on your purchase. We bought our first Motorhome, a 2005 Forester 2 months ago and have learned so much from the great people in our Forum.
