Sportscoach Cross Country 405FK & 406QS

My wife and I are considering trading in to a 405FK or 406QS

if anyone has one can you tell us

likes
dislikes
issues
Factory service or if you have even needed it (is it as good as the rest of the Forest River Factory Service) we have had great results on our Georgetwon
handling
fuel consumption

anything you can tell me really would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance

I am 'assuming' no one has/had any issues with either coach. I am going to take that as a good thing

No one said "DON'T DO IT!"

So we traded our Georgetown in on a Sportscoach Cross Country 405FK today!

Really pleased with deal, got a FANTASTIC price.

Thanks

Exterior is Upgraded Red October W/Double Clear Coat
Interior is Sherwood & Cognac Maple (real deep brown)

We liked the 405 'much' better than the 406 once we saw them in person

Thanks,

We have about 10,000 miles plus planned for this year, maybe more....we should be very very comfortable
Shakedown next weekend and first longer trip in about 7 weeks...headed to JAWjuh (Georgia)

It's a great color scheme, that will be on the highway 'tomorrow' We will close on it this evening and PDI tonight and tomorrow.

one of the big selling points was the full flat floor walk around bed in the master. The fireplace was also a big hit. The Sherwood interior we weren't too sure about until we saw it in person, great color.

Also looking forward to a little more quiet ride up front

We looked at that same floorplan (and loved it - it's the same as Fleetwood's 40X). The Sportscoach we saw was an early 2010 model I think, so before they started putting them on the raised rail chassis, which is like night and day. I liked that model closed for travel too - still had room.

Lots of bang for the buck in these coaches now. Sounds like you're in for quite a ride! Best of luck!
