How does it handle on the road? Thank you so much for your help!!!!
Check for the Forester 2651s same thing as the 2650s. I had the same problem locating the 2650s to get a look and found a forester fairly close by. We spent some time going thru it,again the rear exterior storage was a big selling point with us.It had the dinette and though we hadnt seen the couch option except online we went with that. Only problem with the couch is the table that goes with it, too heavy to continually take up and put down. We use the cheap tv dinner tables for the weekends and only put up the big table for longer stays.MPG depends ,
winter gas in New England drops mpg 2-3 gal. I use a scangauge to keep track of whats happening with temp and mpg.Basically your looking at 6-8mpg maybe better when its broken in. We've only done short trips so far. Longest drive so far was bringing it home from dealer Handling wasnt as bad as some of the bigger coaches have said but I found when I got home the tires and air bags had less pressure that some have suggested here. Thing is to take your time and make sure you get what you want. This is a great place to ask questions and research equipment just remember we all have the best FR models...LOL
