Good morning. I am a retired firefighter (41 years) from south Louisiana. We, last week, went from a fifth wheel camper to the Forester class C. We thought the set up time would be less and much easier. The idea of being able to pull over in a rest area and crank up the generator for a couple of hours very attractive. We made our first short trip this weekend. It rained most of the weekend. It was great not to have to get out in the rain to set up. The living area is a little smaller, but everything is conveniently located and we loved it. Looking forward to our next trip.

Welcome from Madison, AL. In Feb 14 we traded in our 5th wheel and bought our Georgetown, you are right the set up time is so much faster, and if it is raining when you get to a campground or where if you don't want to get out and set up right then you can wait and stay dry. I hope you enjoy your Forester.

welcome and great to have you aboard. We are on our second trailer which is our first 5th wheel. We looked at several motorhomes but not quite ready to give up all of the extra room that we have in our 5th wheel. We may be looking at a Motorhome in a few years but we love our 5th wheel now.
