Have any of you considered these two class C models, what do you like, what don't you like. Any known issues with either? things to watch out for? Why would you choose one over the other, etc. is the fiberglass roof on the forester something to be careful with? Is the TPO roof on the leprechaun something to watch out for? Ive heard some pros/cons of both roofing types.

Amenities, what did you like and what didn't you like? Either unit missing anything from your perspective? How well do you think each of these units are constructed?

I've already received some feedback from bclemens at forest river, which was great and much appreciated. Now I'd like some feed back in general from the board as I gave found y'all to be a great resource on every question I have had in the past.
I will not buy a class C motorhome without a fiberglass roof or a front/rear cap, period. At 65-70 miles an hour, water can get through seams while on the road. Having a roof that covers the top seams and a front cap which covers the seams on the cabover go a long way in keeping water from entering and damaging one's rig.

The only exception would be if I could get a type of roof coating put on, which completely covers seams with a seamless coating that stretches and flexes as the motorhome goes down the road. A pickup bedliner spray is different, as it doesn't flex/stretch.
