Hello everybody

I should have posted here first. Started a new thread because I was excited about the Classic Super Lite 5ers I saw online. I have been an owner of a 2001 Arctic Fox 29-E for approx. 5 years. Really like the floorplan with the TV being across from the sofa. They seem hard to find with this configuration. I didn't really need such a heavy duty coach but it seemed like a good deal for a used 5er. I posted the following on the new thread.

Hello all. New to the Forest River brand. Very interested in the rear kitchen Flagstaff Super Lite 5ers. I have owned a 2001 Arctic Fox 29-e 5er for approx. 5 years. looking to get something newer. I like the floor plan with the TV across from the sofa. It seems very hard to find this type of floorplan. How do they make these coaches so much liter than any other brand of the same length. Are they as durable as other coaches being so much liter? I would like to stay in the dry weight of 9,000lbs or less rating. These are way below that, but I question the construction and durability factor. Thank you.

Welcome aboard! If you don't know all ready there's lots of mod ideas here on the forum from little ajustments to big projects. If even if you don't have any remodeling plans it makes for interesting reading.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
