Watchful eye is always good, even with ours. We have a bug jump out once in a while but when you are driving an apartment down the highway......bugs will jump out.
Where in Alabama are you located? The reason I ask is, if you are rally goers, DW and I are co-host along with BamaBob and his DW Anne-Marie. We call it "Bamaganza", this year it will be Oct 5 - 9 in Naccalula Falls in Alabama.
Also there is an annual rally for Forest River in Goshen, IN. This years dates are August 14 -20. The link for the information is:
FROG - Forest River Owners Group
The Forest River rally is quite big, over 700 RV's last year and a great time. If you decide to go, register "early" I can't stress that enough...it fills up fast. Registration should begin mid-late March.
There is also a rally for just Coachmen owners at the same location some time usually in June, I don't have the dates for that one.
Keep posting on here and asking question or making comments, this is a great forum with some great people and a lot of good sound advice.
