2007 sv-304

Hello. I am completely new to the world of travel trailer camping. We just purchased a used 2007 SV-304 and will begin traveling the US with our 4 children very soon. We hope to spend 3 years on the road.

The first thing I am trying to find is a manual on the TT itself. We have all of the original manuals for the appliances and such, but can't seem to find one for the TT. My husband wants to know things like 'weight load' on the roof, etc, etc.

Since this will be a totally new experience for us, any advice is welcomed. I copied and printed some advice given in this thread: Sv 304 but it is all pertaining to a 2009 so I am unsure if there will be variances.

Again, I thank you for your time. Any information that we can gain before we hit the road is a great plus.

There was general "cover-all models" manual that came with new units, but nothing specific to a particular model.

If you have all of the appliance manuals, you are big step ahead from many people that buy used units.

The 2009 SV 304 should be close to capacities and weights.

BTW, welcome to the forum ??

Thanks, mtnguy. I will pass all of the information that I pulled from "spinner's" comments on to my husband. I haven't had a chance to read through it all yet.

I am looking forward to being part of the Forest River Forums. I am sure it will serve as a great resource.

Hello, and to the forums. Hope you enjoy the stay, and learn a lot, and can teach others what you already know. As for the manual, pretty generic if you find one. As for weight, may be a white paper stuck on one of the kitchen cabinet doors, it should have some weights on it, and maybe options. Otherwise, look for a sticker on left front corner outside, will give gross weight and axle ratings. As to roof weight, 200 pounds is usually not a problem, otherwise may want to lay a sheet of plywood down to distribute weight if walking around up there. Don't tear it if it is a rubber roof.
Have fun and enjoy.

I got the info from Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine. You can got there, type in Forest River : RV, Cargo Trailers, Boats, Commercial, Housing, and get a number of years of information. There was also a brochure listed, but I couldn't get that to download this morning.
