Compare it on FR's website.
No spare, no transfer switch, no ladder, no water filter, no sink cover, no dream dinette, no child head tethers, optional running boards, no heated and enclosed tanks, t-mold counters, no drawers in the dinette, no bumper cover.
Funny thing is...THIS is the same spec other Class C builder are offering on their normal units.
We started building this because dealers & many customers would compare price only...not spec. So they wanted us to compete on price with other builders that had propane only water heaters, no heated, enclosed tanks, no spare, no water filter...etc...etc. So we gave them one floor plan.
Thing is I hate talking about what it "doesn't have" because it makes it seem inferior. But this is the same spec for Thor, Minnie Winnie, Coachmen, Redhawk, etc. BUT as is our way, everyone else does this on a non slide. We are the only ones that eliminate the corner bed.
It just looks less in comparison because we offer so much on the Sunseeker/Forester.
We still get customers that like the floor plan and want all the regular Sunseeker features. However if we put all those options on there, the dealers would add them and we'd be back at square one "Well such and such is this price for that size unit"

PS. We do not stock rubber roofing material...so we never thought to cut costs by using rubber roof.
