I have been "lurking" on the FR3 forum for many months, while I read every post.
When I started researching the purchase of our first RV, I fairly quickly narrowed down our shopping list to the FR3, the Thor ACE, and the Winnebago Vista (their respective 30' models). With what I learned on this forum, I felt comfortable making a choice, and we recently took delivery of our brand new 2016 FR3 30DS.
I just wanted to thank everyone for their willingness to share all their experiences, knowledge and ideas. It was a huge factor in helping us make a big decision.
