Hello all! I decided that lurking kinda stinks so here I am.
After almost two very frustrating years of searching for the "perfect" camper, we bought a FR 8528RKWS late in the season last year right before the snow started flying. Great deal but horrible timing! Ugh. It killed me to have the darned thing sitting in storage all winter and DH got really tired of hearing me say "I wanna go camping!" Fair weather has finally returned, though, and we have been taking full advantage of our new "mobile throne room".
We've had to deal with a few "bugs" so far, too, but nothing major and nothing that the dealer and/or FR wasn't ready, willing and able to take care of immediately. It's not much different than a new house or a new car, I guess. Something's bound to come up eventually.
I am, however, still waiting on a new TV. Yep...our 32" Toshiba POC also took a dump on us during our first trip. The TV issue is what led me to this place. Thank you, Google. LOL
Anyhoo...'nuff rambling. Nice to see you all.
Happy camping!

Welcome to the forums and congrats on your 'new' camper!! Glad you finally got to use it and that there were only minor problems you encountered.
