2015 fr3

Our brand spanking new FR3 came in Wednesday; we went to check it out & sign the paperwork Friday. We decided to get a Fantastic fan installed & will pick it up this Wednesday. We thought it was going to be a 2014 model, but it turns out to be the new 2015 unit with the king-size bed. We are both speechless!! We had only seen the 25DS model in person before, but had not seen the 30DS. I did not realize it would look so huge!! We traded in a 2010 Sunseeker 2300. You can imagine the difference between the two. I do the driving and am extremely apprehensive about driving it and at the same time, very excited. We will be taking it out very soon to give it a good workout.

Congrats, we just went from the Sunseeker 2300 to the FR3 30DS. I am not going to lie to you its a lot different in driving we just got home from FL a 2600 mile trip, be ready for the crosswinds and just take your time and get use to it.

The 2015 is supposed to have several improvements over the 2014. I love my 2014 so I certainly believe that you are in for some good times! I would check out some of the driving videos available on Youtube. Welcome to the FR3 Club!!

Thanks for the welcome, everybody. We went to the dealership this past Friday & did the walk-thru and signed all the paperwork, so we are now proud owners of a FR3. The new FR3s are very similar to the 2014 models, but now have the king-sized bed and LED lights. I think there were some trade-offs, though. The older models had Jensen LED 12 volt TVs & this one has a brand called Furrion. I have never heard of this brand; hope it is a decent brand. I know it will be a big adjustment getting used to driving a rig this size, but I'm going to give it big try. All those cameras that come on it will come in very handy for me. Good thing my distance perception is such that things look a lot closer than they actually are!! Anyway, thanks again for making me feel a part of the group. I'll post again after we pick it up.

Mine has the Furrion and the picture is pretty decent. The battery door on one of the remotes had broken the first day, but it still works. Looking into putting in leds.
