New Flagstaff V-Lite on order

Hello everyone

I am new to this forum and I am even more pleased I chose the Forest River brand after finding this great place to share information. My wife and I have been discussing an RV for almost 10 years back and forth between Class C, TT, etc. and we finally made the decision to go with the 2011 30WFKSS. I am a huge aviation nut and have been flying competition large scale radio control aerobatics for several years and we have always thought it would be perfect to have an RV for traveling to our competitions. We are expected to take delivery of our new unit last week of December (fingers crossed). We are already planning Oshkosh this next year as well as many other State parks we are interesting in visiting. My wife is a genealogist and we enjoy visiting towns in search of family history. I joined the forum even before receiving my coach because I have really been impressed with the quality of information and general friendliness and willing to help folks I have seen posting here. All I can say is if this is the type of folks we will run into out traveling then I am glad we will be a part of it. Look forward to all the fun ahead and just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. Thanks in advance for all the help, information and friendship. Happy Camping Everyone....

Thanks Youroo, we thought the layout was great too. So what type of issues have you had? do you have a 2011? or 2010? I would normally wait to get close to where I was going to dry camp before filling the water tank just carry enough to make the trip with. What issues did you have? I will be pulling mine with an 06 F-250 Superduty with towing package and some added performance goodies I am producing about 322hp. I think that should more than do it...

to the forum!
Congrats on the new tt. I know it will be a long month for you, but you can spend the time checking out this forum and reading about what mods some people have done that you might want to do yourself. As you already know, ask all the questions you want. Someone on here will be able to help you with good info.

Good luck and happy camping!

First welcome to the forum, there are many knowledgeable people here to answer your questions. You should really like the new TT when you get it. I know we love ours although it is a much different layout. Happy traveling and above all be safe on the highways.

Hey Bryan,

Nice choice, I like those V's.
Would make a nice toy hauler as well for the competition trips, especially if you go to The Polo Grounds....

I used to fly .60 sized pattern ships back in the early to mid 80's, did alright with an old Futaba 6 ch and a YS 60 in a Kaos. Just before getting out I was flying a Phoenix 8 with a YS 1.20. Still have my first Mach One with an HB .61 in it....good times....

Welcome!!!!! from another Brian but I must spell my name the Canadian way and I have only flown (in a two seat Cessna) once for about 3/4 of an hour so I know nothing about airplanes. Real or model. I guess if I can't drive we don't go there. I'm sure you will find lots here who have flown either and I know lots will have answers for your trailer questions. We have a 27 ft. superlite v-cross which we like very much and (touchwood) have had very few issues with it so far. Hope you have nothing but good times with your rig and many safe travels. Old guys

Hello Bryan, and Welcome to the forum, and the V lite family! I think I have (arguably) the oldest V-lite on here, when they were first delivered to my dealer's lot, I bought it the second day. April 08. There have been many product improvements since, most all for the better, so y'alls must really be great! Anyway, great camping trails to you, and any questions or problems, just ask!! Randy

That is great. I started competing in Pattern and worked my way up to a 4th at the National level. Before moving to IMAC I was flying a YS 160 DZ and a JR 12X 2.4ghz spread spectrum radio. The hobby has come a long way but hang on to the Mach One. Have you heard of the Ballistic Pattern Association (BPA) this is a special interest group devoted to the older pattern ships screaming on .61 with tuned pipes.

Thanks so much everyone for the fantastic welcome. I look forward to the travels and I am sure I will have some questions for the group here once I get my coach and head out on the road.

I'm new to this forum also. We just purchased the Flagstaff V Lite 30 WRLTS. Can't wait to try it this weekend. How is your camping going so far? Any problems?
