Was just looking to hear some feedback and experiences from the ones that know it best. This being a Forest River forum I suppose I will get mostly feedback on that product line.
Will be a retired couple looking to use TT for 1 week trips up to 1 month trips a few times a year at least. So far looked at 2360 2460 and 2600 as far a size goes. probably going to go smaller rather than larger. Thanks again, can not wait to get started.
Welcome, I grew up in Vegas, left in '83. Rest of the family is basically still there. I will try and be as "generic" as possible with my suggestions.
#1, Let her decide on the interior, size, layout etc. Best decision I ever made! We settled on a rear kitchen layout and have been happy with that. Seems that floor plan had more storage and countertop space and that was important to the DW.
#2 Also, a living room slide. These are a lot more common and trouble free than they used to be and the extra space is way worth it.
#3 Ours has a shower/tub combo, but our next one will likely have just a shower. That's what we've found we use instead of the tub.
#4 Look for drawers under the dinette seats. Much easier to use than lifting the seat to put away or retreive stored items. We use ours for the pots and pans.
#5 In general the more cabinets cupboards closets you can fit the better.
#6 Big doors on the outside storage. Bigger the better for ease of loading and unloading
#7 Must have a "walk around" bed. That is, you can get to 3 sides of the bed. This makes it a lot easier to make the bed, less inconvenience when you need to get up in the middle of the night and a happier missus when I get up before dawn to go out shooting!
#8 Go Diesel with your tow vehicle. You'll be pulling 3 to 5 tons of RV and nothing pulls like a diesel!
#9 Don't forget to pop for the WDH and anti sway. Very important for safety and comfort.
