Hello all. First post as a forum member. Recently traded in our 2006 rock wood ultra light for a 2013 Thunderbolt XLR 395 AMP. we take delivery of the TH is weekend and can't wait to take it to Port Aransas mid July. Anyone else owners of the Thunderbolt XLR? Just curious how the are and I understand there will be some problems, hopefully nothing serious.

Picked up the new XLR today. PDI went ok but less than a hundred miles and the tire blew. Thank God I was only a block from the house. Middle tire in the drivers side. I know I didn't run over anything and not sure what happened. Will post pics of the TH once I get this crisis taken care of.

Welcome to the Forest River Forums and congrats on your new Thunderbolt XLR! Please do keep us updated on the tire issue - couldn't had been much fun to deal with especially with it being brand new.

Take care,

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