We purchased a 2010 used (only once) and love the openness also. Beware - after traveling and before extending kitchen slide (stove side)
ck the kitchen drawers for popping open behind the slide during transit.
If drawer pops open it will get caught behind slide when extending and jam the slide and damage the drawer. Tie down drawers before traveling. Other negatives thus far: For extremely hot weather in florida -need second a.c. In bedroom. Not enough electric outlets. No wall light swithes in bedroom - try finding this overhead push button in the dark.no light at the control board at kitchen sink - dark spot - need flashlight at night or open door to be able to view. If in transit and want to stop for a sandwich, cannot access kitchen area as slides completely enclose....must extend both slides to be able to access refrig/sink. Big design flaw...would be great to have had a light switch at bathroom door instead of having to fumble for a light in the ceiling or across the room at the sink. I do love the opennesss f the living room although the air mattress has to be reinflated twice each night as it loses air. Stove height too low - feel like i am going down hill. Have had a montana fifth wheel years prior which was superior in all aspects.i assume forest river was cutting corners for pricing, but these few issues i would have gladly paid a little more for.
